I thought I had a UTI, but.......


I just returned from my regular doctor after going there for them to confirm my pregnancy and a possible UTI. My usual Dr. is out this week so I had to see another. I am quite upset as I thought I surely had a UTI and it turns out that I don't. He didn't bother to check if anything else might be causing my symptoms.. The only thing he did do was take blood and refer me to an OBGYN. Now do I just suffer with this pain until the first OBGYN appt. in 2 weeks?

Does anyone think the pain "down there" could be from constantly going to the bathroom and or too much wiping? (I must have gone to the bathroom 6 times during the night the past few nights) I hope someone can help me out, I just don't know what to do..

You might have some type of infection. There are several easily treated things that tend to crop up more during pregnancy. I would call the OBGYN and ask if they can get you in sooner if you're really concerned. Feel better!

Same EXACT thing happened to me in my first pregnancy. It felt nothing like a yeast infection and I thought for sure it was a UTI.

Is thrush similar to a yeast infection? How is it treated? I really don't want to go back to see this quack of a Dr..

Same thing happened to me a few days ago. I went to the doctor thinking I had a uti & turns out I have a yeast infection. My doctor said that's what's causing the burning when I pee. I haven't had any itching or anything either so maybe you have a yeast infection too. I heard its easy to get them when pregnant. Good luck hun.


* when pregnant a yeast infection can be treated with Monistat 7. You can get it without a prescription.

Yeast infection and thrush are the same, just a different name.

I have been doing some research online and I have read A LOT of different articles stating that pregnancy hormones can cause this problem? I truly wonder if I do have a yeast/thrush or bv because there is no itching or discharge. I think all of the peeing I'm doing recently is playing a big part in it. I've read about using hydrocortizone will help. I think I may try that and see what happens.

Hydrocortisone is a steroid, it'll calm the itching but if you have thrush or a uti it won't actually cure it - ie it'll treat the symptoms but not eradicate the actual cause. Be careful with steroid creams in pregnancy, you definitely need to use with caution whilst pregnant.

I returned to the Dr (A different one this time, but still not my regular Dr) and they checked again for a UTI and also did a vaginal swab and all was normal. Can hormones cause burning down there? I hope this doesn't last for the entire 9 months. I guess I'll have to cave in and buy some Monistat to get some relief.
