Your friend doesn't need to worry that she has done anything wrong. There are a number of things that can contribute to getting a bladder infections.

It Pays to know what you are dealing with

Because your friend is quite young and because she is not sure what it is, I would recommend that she goes to a doctor to help her diagnose what the problem is.

I think the internet is fantastic for finding out ideas for alternative cures. For uncovering more information. And for finding a supportive community for help. However it can be dangerous to start diagnose yourself if you aren't really sure what you have.

Common symptoms of a bladder infection are:

Pain when you pee
Feeling like you need to pee often
Not being able to pee very much when you do go
A weird smell in your pee
Cloudy pee.

Sometimes there can be a pinkish colour which can be blood in there, although this doesn't always happen.

Does your friend have any of these other symptoms?

My suggestion for her would be to talk to a doctor to help her work out what she might have. From there she can find a treatment that works for her.

I hope this can give you a few answers. If you friend can't find a doctor she can use, perhaps she can talk to an older woman that she feels comformtable with. Many women have had bladder infections at some stage in their life. They may be able to help her confirm that it is in fact a bladder infection. It is hard to treat something if you don't know what it is.

Wishing both you and your friend health and happiness.
