  • Lower belly pain with vaginal bleeding or discharge and a fever of 100°F (38°C) or higher
  • Urinary burning, frequent urination, or inability to urinate and a fever of 100°F (38°C) or higher

Call your doctor to find out when an evaluation is needed if you have the following symptoms.

  • Vaginal discharge that has become yellowish, thicker, or bad-smelling
  • Bleeding between periods that occurs more than once when periods are usually regular
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Bleeding after sexual intercourse
  • Sores, bumps, rashes, blisters, or warts on or around the genital or anal area
