bladder infection or something else?
For the last two days I have had a peculiar pain in my bladder area - Feels like a sharp pain at times but mostly an aching, period-like pain. When I urinate it hurts before and during, but not burning, more like cramping. I was on a 5-day dose of progesterone about three weeks ago, prescribed by a gynae as I didnt have a period for about 12 days after my last due time, whilst being on the pill, ginette. After the 5-day cycle of progesterone, I then had my period +-5 days later.
I am no longer on the pill ginette but now I am having these strange pains, please explan? - Thanks

The likeliest cause would still be a bladder infection. See your doctor to check.
