Patient : For at least a month now i have been experiencing pain during sex with my boyfriend (i am a woman). Since becoming sexually active with him i have experienced around 12 UTIs within 18 months, and am currently on a 6 month course of half strength antibiotics to try and fix this. I have self examined and have some redness around the entrance to my vagina. I also experience some pain during urination and exercise, and recently went through a period of extreme itchiness. Any ideas? This pain is putting a bar in my relationship
