Urinary Tract Infections

Posted By Chris on February 02, 1998 at 20:41:10:

I am a 22 year old female and I have had urinary tract/bladder infections since age 11. When I got my first UTI I was prescribed Gantrisn. Since then I have had them very frequently, as often as twice a week, which is not uncommon for me. I have seen a doctor about six different times and was denied a request to see a urologist until a couple of months ago. The doctors had told me that they knew what was wrong and prescribed me different antibiotics: Macrodantin and Sulfer-something. Both did not work. About a couple of months ago I saw a Urologist who performed a cystoscopy and found nothing wrong. He then prescribed me Macrodantin. I'm still getting UTIs all of the time. My symptoms are painful urination, a sharp pain and pressure against my bladder during sex, chills, occasional lower back pains, painful urination, and the urgency to urinate. My Urologist did a urinalysis a few times and it came back positive for a UTI, so it ruled out the possibility of being something that has the same symptoms as a UTI. I am desparate to find out what is wrong with me. I can't take it anymore. Having two UTIs a week is driving me crazy. No medication has helped.
