First Time Sex/Virginity
Posted on: 01/29/2008
Im 17 and have just had my first intercourse last monday. I bled of course, but since then it always feels like i have to urinate. When i actually do use the restroom, i pee very little and there is slight traces of blood. Im scared that it may be UTI because i am far too afraid to go see a doctor. too scared to talk about this with friends & family. Is there an "at home" method or over the counter medication? Its been a week and i've been terrified.
Well it will not go away, so I suggest you go get checked by a doctor. UTI's are not necessarily related to sex - so your parents will not know you have started having sex - but do tell the doctor about your sexual experience.
