I am a healthy 27 year old female with an unremarkable medical history. Over the past 4 months I have had two uti's 2 months apart. Also, I am nursing my child. Each uti has been caused by citrobacter koseri. First time symptoms went away without proper treatment. Second time treated with omnicef for lack of better antibiotic I assume because I am nursing. I have been reading online that this bacteria rarely causes uti's with the exception of those who are immunocompromised. My question is: should I be worried something more serious is going on? Could this be due to changes in my unitary tract related to hormones and nursing? I want to figure this out before we try and get pregnant again.
I would suggest that you see your doctor and consider a urine culture for test of cure. Should you continue to get your urinary track infections, I would suggest you see a urologist or urogynecologist for evaluation. J. Kyle Mathews, MD
