while taking the medicine? specifically a uti or kidney infection? I think I could have one but the signs arent so clear. Don't wanna be an idiot and go to the doc for nothing

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I was wondering the same thing actually...and those were the two possibilities on my mind as well. I'll be asking my doctor next time I go in this coming Monday about that so I can update if you like. I think if you're having concerns you could at least call...

I have frequent(and I do mean frequent) urination, right flank pain, some sort of milky white substance drips into the latrine after urination, and I cannot have intercourse at all or it burns really badly afterward and is uncomfortable during..
And then that feeling that I still need to urinate even though I already did. It's been like this for a couple of weeks for me as well. And yes, I hear you about being tired! But I can't tell if it is the humira's fatigue or UTI/kidney symptoms.

I've had a pretty severe yeast infection before and I had to have a catheter twice during last summer. The discomfort during intercourse has been since the last yeast infection and the burning/irritation/frequent urination have come and gone for a while...I really don't know what it means because wouldn't it be constant?
Have yours come and then gone ever either?

We get the most wonderful problems being females with Crohn's on humira :)

I'm on Humira now, but was on remicade before. Haven't had those kinds of problems, but have had sinus issues like they say you can expect. Granted, I am rather anal about hygiene down there. I use baby wipes after TP, don't use scented lotion anywhere on my thighs, and use unscented pantyliners. Perhaps my almost ocd behavior about it is keeping me safe?
