I'm a 22 year old female and I've been having

Patient

Q: I'm a 22 year old female and I've been having kidney problems for over 2 months now. I've been on 4 courses of antibiotics and nothing has helped. I was referred for a scan which was then cancelled by the doctor who would be doing it and told I would get an examination instead. I had a bad fall before all this and the kidney pain started on the side I fell on. Also, I have the contraceptive implant in my arm which stopped my periods but I have been bleeding more regularly than usual. It's not a normal period. I bleed every week. I wonder if that's anything to do with my kidneys.
