My girlfriend has painfull passing, blood, frequency, and a foul smell about her urine. I looked it up and I think it's just a bladder infection. If anyone has any other info or cures that would help greatly, she is kinda a wuss when it comes to being sick or in pain so if anyone just has anything that should help her sleep tonight so she can check out the doc in the morning that would be great.

  • Maybe she is not a wuss. Did you ever have a bladder infection or kidney stones when you do you will see the kind of pain it is. Get her to a doctor see if its an infection ask for a urine culture in case the urine is negative she still could have one and if it continues and she is not getting help the condition I have has teh foul smell and the urine will not have infection just all the pain of one and more. it is comon inmen and women not contagious but rarer. It is called Interstial cystits and is often dismissed as its all inyour head. Hope this helps.

  • Mild urinary tract infections can be treated with some natural remedies, however serious infection require antibiotics. So I think she should go to doctor. Moreover, in rare cases UTI can be caused by Chlamydia and Mycoplasma, which are STD infections. There are some tips on UTIs at the bottom of this page: http://www.healthassist.net/conditions/uti-management.shtml
