Hi, Hoping someone has some answers...I am a 26 y/o female from Australia, I have been experiencing mild intermittent abdominal pain for over a month now together with more frequent urination (also intermittent usually once an hour but some days I can go every 15 minutes for a period of about 2 hours), there is no pain, discolouration or bad smell in my urine. The urination thing has been going on for about 2 months and has always been kind of a problem for me but lately it has gotten much worse. The pains started about a month ago, approximately three days before I suffered a very nasty bout of viral gastroenteritis during which I was hospitalised for a night.

I originally went to the doctor as soon as I started feeling the pains, she put it down to a UTI but my urine test was negative and then the gastro set in so she said the pains must have been due to the gastro.

I came through the gastro fine within a week but the odd little pains have continued. They move about anywhere between my belly button down to my pelvis. There is also intermittent tenderness in these regions. The pain is entirely on my right side however. I have also been experiencing a frequent milky vaginal discharge, it is a normal looking discharge that I have had throughout my adult life, but it has been almost daily (albeit very little) which is not so normal for me.

My periods have been entirely regular and without complication (I use birth control pills).

I have been to the doctor at least 3-4 times since the gastro finished, she did further urine tests and examined blood tests from the hospital and identified some kind of infection but it is not a UTI and antibiotics I was prescribed (Keflex) had no effect. The doctor after prodding my stomach a bit decided it must be inflammation of the colon due to the gastro. I also insisted on having a pelvic ultrasoud to rule out ovarian cancer or something horrible like that, the pelvic ultrasound was entirely normal.

I am going to see another doctor tomorrow but I would be interested to know if anyone has experienced the same sort of thing. It is something I can live with if it is not serious but I am very concerned that it could be something serious and it is driving me mad.
