Doctor: Thank you for your question. It is possible that you are suffering from a urinary tract infection. This is commonly caus ed by bacteria which can be contracted by sexually transmitted infections. We recommend that you follow up with your doctor to conduct a urine test. You will likely be prescribed antibiotics to treat this infection. Please see your doctor as soon as possible as this infection can cause an acute infection of the kidneys called acute pyelonephritis.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
