Period Probz
AngMason posted:
I recently had sex, my 5th or 6th time (we used a condom and Im not on the pill). This has been the 2nd month now, my first period was normal and on time. The second month, around my time of ovulation, I began experiencing symptoms of a yeast infection. The symptoms began to reside and I had sex approximately 3 days before my period was due. 2 days after, I began experiencing UTI symptoms and my period was a day early. Im on.the 3rd day of my period and the UTI symptoms have not resided. Im also experiencing terrible cramping in my back. What could be the cause of this?
