Now I feel Like I Have a UTI

Published: May 07, 2013
Dear Now I feel Like I Have a UTI,

The other day I was shaving and got a bad cramp and spazzed and happened to slice my labia. It’s not bleeding badly now and it is day 3 but now I feel like I have a UTI. I have no idea what to do at all. Please help me.


Dear Now I feel Like I Have a UTI,

You did not say why you think you have a urinary tract infection (UTI). The main symptom of an UTI is a burning sensation when you pee. It is possible that you could also experience this sensation from the cut on your labia especially if it has become infected. In any case you wouldn’t be writing in unless you were experiencing some level of discomfort. You really need to see a doctor and have her/him diagnose the situation and prescribe a course of treatment.

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health in Morristown 973-971-6475 or the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health in Summit at 908-522-5757 for an appointment. Outside this area contact a local Adolescent Medicine Specialist, your local teen health center.
