bladder infection
After 15 minutes of getting out of bed I developed cronic pains in the lower part of my abdomen (sharp on and off pains) and shooting pains up into my virgina when sitting down and urinating which lasted a couple of hours. The doctor prescribed CIPROFLOXACIN tablets for a bladder infection and I have two tablets left to take but am still getting the abdomal pains although nothing like the cronic pains I first had and the shooting pains up in my virgina have ceased. Are my symptons the result of a bladder infection or could it be something else and should I go back to my doctors if the stomach pains continue over the next couple of days. Could you also tell me how bladder infections are caught.

It could be a bladder or a pelvic infection, but it seems to be getting better.
Bladder infections can occur from not wiping from front to back after going to the toilet. Sex can also cause them.
