Hi @loribmt, thanks for your response. I don't think it is a UTI because I have no pain when I urinate. Weirdly enough, that it actually when I feel the most relief! I am 22 years old so not menopausal but my period is due in a couple of days and this is the first time I have ever experienced this feeling so I am thinking it also has to do with hormonal imbalance. I am right there with you with the complexity of the female anatomy!!
