Question: Peeing in blood and stools.
|jet1982 - Mon Jan 16, 2006 10:35 pm|
I've just been active in sex recently after a 3 years lay off. Recently, after a long weekend with my boyfriend, my vaginal area was sore, but no bleeding. I've been having fever after that and also noticed blood in my urine and my stools. I'm experiencing lower adbominal discomfort and pain while I pee. I had UTI before. However,during the last few months, my period had been irregular and with 1 cycle heavy and 1 cycle very light. Also, my discharge in between period is lumpy, yellowish tinge. I don't know what it is that I'm experiencing, but its making me uncomfortable. Please help...

I think you need to pay a visit to your doctor as soon as possible. The fact that you are bleeding in your urine and stools and experience heavy bleeding at times could point towards a bleeding or coagulation disorder.
It may be that your irregular menses are a result of hormonal imbalance but the fact that you are bleeding in your stools and urine alone, warrants a visit to your doctor.

I've already paid the Doctor a visit. I was diagnosed with stones in kidneys, which is why I'm experiencing bleeding while peeing and also the blood in stool caused by piles. But somehow I'm more worried about contracting STDs or any infection. I've read a lot about yeast infection. Please advise..

The 3 most common causes of vaginitis are bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis (yeast infection) and trichomoniasis. Vaginal discharge may also result from sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea or chlamydia.
A white, curdlike discharge that looks like cottage cheese is a classic sign of yeast infection. Yellow, green or gray discharge is usually a sign of trichomonas or bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis also has an unusual, fishy odor. Gonorrhea and chlamydia usually don't cause any symptoms at all. In some cases they present as a new vaginal discharge accompanied by fever, abdominal pain or pain during intercourse.
Since you do have lower abdominal discomfort and fever plus discharge you are strongly recommended to get it checked out.
Itching is usually most noticeable with a yeast infection, though it may occur with any type of infection or irritation.
I strongly advise you to always use condoms and also if you have the slightest suspicion of STDs to get checked at an STD clinic or a genito-urinary specialist.
