I am a 24 - year - old woman. I am healthy other than the fact that I get NON STOP UTIs. I am currently on a prevenatie anti biotic. Before I was put on this I would get a UTI ever time I got off of an anti biotic. After I would finish a dose, a week later, I would get another. Now I have been on a daily does for almost six month, twice per day. And now I just got ANOTHER UTI despite my daily anti biotic. This has now been going on for five years. I was born with a third kidney. It never worked. We thought that was the cause of the UTI and all the pain, so I had it removed. Two months later the pain was still gone but the UTIs returned. That was two years ago. I am very depressed and tired of constantly being sick. I have tried EVERYTHING from changing eating habits, to no intercourse, to not taking baths and only showers, even using anti bactieral wipes ever time I use the bath room. I have even tried stopping my BC. NOTHING WORKS.
I don't know what else to do or why I keep getting UTIs. After over a dozen Uroglogist and sevral surgerys nothing have worked.
Please does anyone know what's going on or have any ideas? I'm tired of living sick
