Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. What you are describing could be signs of a urinary tract infection. The typical signs are that of Frequency ( going to the bathroom more than often to pee), Urgency ( a feeling that you have to go immediately), burning on urination, foul smelling urine and cloudy urine. Sometimes one may also get some pain in the lower abdomen in the pelvic area.
You need to go to your family physician who will advice you to take a urine sample for testing either in office or to the lab and depending on the result you may need an antibiotic for the infection. Another thing that you can do is keep your self hydrated, drink lots of water. In order to prevent further infections you can drink cranberry juice, avoid the use of vaginal douches, bubble baths, always pee before and after sexual intercourse and wipe from front to back.
