Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to say what could be the issue here. I would suggest getting evaluated for conditions like chronic residual infections, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, endometritis, pelvic inflammatory diseases, neurological issues, hormonal/ endocrine imbalances etc; that could present similarly. It would be best to have the evaluation in coordination with a gynaecologist and a nephrologist/ urologist.
Hope this is helpful.
hiya, im from wales great britain,
i to have been suffering with uti's the first approx 7yrs ago which i ignored for so long i had kidney infection too...
i have noticed a pattern forming that if my sexual activity becomes more frequent i end up with a uti Even though i make absolutly sure (paranoia) i wash and urinate afterwards!!! since i hit 45yrs my body seems to be retaliating....... compacted bowel, prone to 'bugs' d and v', cold sores, shingles, low immune system, so for the past 3yrs theres always been something ! ;( so i totally sympathise with u when u said '' I am terrified to even be intimate with my husband because this brings them on sometimes and this of course causes problems in the marriage'' me too, but reasure them (they are like kids really)
how do you know if you have a kidney infection? I think I had a UTI but it seems that 10 days of flagyl wasn't enough
sorry if this is random but i would like to know that if you have a UTI .. will it sting when you have sexual intercourse? i am a teenage girl and about a month ago my doctor told me i may have a bladder infection because there is high amounts of red&white blood cells in my urine but he was not completely sure, he said it could have been from having the stomach flu a week before or maybe because i was sick at the time. i was supposed to have another urine test but i never got it. will someone please tell me if i have a UTI? i dont have much symptoms except for pain while peeing but mostly only after i had intercourse. please help (:
