Boyfriend extremely pushy with sex

I have been seeing someone for 4 months. Quite a few times he was very pushy with having sex while I am sick or during period when I made it clear that I don't want to. He never actually crosses the line in forcing me to do it but I still feel weirded out. [more inside]

UTI being treated - continuing kidney pressure/ache

I was diagnosed with a UTI on Friday and given antibiotics. I'm feeling much better, but am still experiencing aching in what I'm about 99% sure are my kidneys. I'm going to call my doctor on Tuesday when the office is open again, but in the meantime I'm hoping to get some kind of rough idea what to expect, and I figured the green was the place to go.

Ten-day course of Cipro for UTI?

I was recently diagnosed with a UTI at an urgent care clinic. The PA (I did not see an MD or NP) prescribed a ten-day course of cipro to treat it (500mg, twice a day, for 10 days). That seems excessive to me (though I will take the full course of antibiotics as prescribed). Is such a long course of antibiotics commonly prescribed for UTIs? [more inside]

Antibiotic-related thrush or just itchy?

I am on antibiotics for a UTI. My vulva feels itchy and uncomfortable, but it isn't swollen or red, and I have no discharge. Could this be thrush? Should I self-medicate with Canesten or wait until I can see my GP after the bank holiday weekend (Tuesday at the earliest, in reality later)? [more inside]

Cat with a UTI and possibly stones?

My 3 year old female cat (DSH) is having urinary issues. We are on day 9 of antibiotics for a UTI (she had no crystals on her UA)and she is not improving. She will be going to the vet for a recheck soon, but I'd really like to hear other people's experiences with UTIs and bladder stones in cats. Does anyone recommend a particular supplement like cranberry? Should I ask the veterinarian to culture her urine for the right antibiotic? Money is in short supply, but I LOVE my cat and will do whatever it takes to get her better. [more inside]

Cat can't a go go

I'm pretty sure my female cat has a urinary tract infection -- she's dragging her butt, licking herself all the time, going to the litter box a lot, etc. I'm going to take her to the vet, but I'm having trouble finding one that's open on Sundays. Is it okay for this to wait until Monday or should I go to an emergency animal hospital?

YANAD/YANMD – Was I mis-diagnosed?

Last Thursday and Friday I had really bad pain in my back on the right side, in the middle – just about where the ribcage ends. I had a low-grade fever on Friday evening. On Saturday morning I decided that the pain was bad enough to necessitate a trip to an Urgent Care facility, as my doctor does not have weekend hours. [more inside]

How worried should I be?

I know you're not my doctor. I had a UTI diagnosed today -- neglected to mention that when I've wiped, the tissue has occasionally (read: 3 times today) come away a very, very pale pink. Pee is normal colored. Am I bleeding? Should I go to the ER? I took my first antibiotic a few hours ago, FWIW.
