I am 27 yrs old and just got married a year and a half ago. After marriage, I seem to be suffering from repeated UTI’s. I have visited the doctor and he prescribes medicine to treat however I do not understand why they are re-occurring and what I can do to prevent them in the future. Please help. Thank you. P.P
Repeated urinary tract infections are not that uncommon among new partners. It usually is intercourse related. A full evaluation that at least would include history and physical exam, blood tests and serial urogenital cultures are often necessary.Other causes of frequency and painful urination should also be considered and ruled out. If your symptoms have lasted this long you should consider an uro-gynecological evaluation.
