Women: Swollen urethra opening?

Recommended Posts

Idk if anyone other ladies out here noticed more bladder infections when they were diagnosed with hsv1? My husband and I were sitting in the bath tub at a hotel and we sat in there a good hour I’d say and when I came home the next day I felt like I couldn’t stop peeing!!! 

I don’t have pain And no weird odor or discharge from what I can see in my urethra opening but it is swollen and white looking? I also had some cramping in my lower abdomen and some back pain, felt super gassy, and whenever I poop I feel like somthing is guna fall out of my urethra. Am I crazy or has anyone else had this problem pleaseeeeeee helpppppp!!!!!!

Hi @lil devy!

Oh I'm sorry you're going through this! Doesn't sound fun at all. Herpes can cause bladder infections and swelling, but only if the actual outbreak is at the urethra itself; is that where your primary infection was?

Here's a snippet from the Mayo Clinic about this: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/genital-herpes/symptoms-causes/syc-20356161#:~:text=Bladder problems.,catheter to drain your bladder.
