Hello my fellow women :o)
I decided to write about my story because I would love to help anyone who needs it. I am a 22 y/o female. I am married and very happy and faithful. Since the age of 14, I started to develop chronic Urinary Tract Infections, and when I get them...they are excrutiating. All I want to do is sit on the toilet and push out as much urine as I can...Theres always blood, back pain, and general ickiness. Since the ripe ol age of 14, I have had them on and off. For the past year, I have pretty much had them constantly. I just got over one yesterday actually!! So anyways, my husband and I have a lot of sex. ALOT! I have done everything right..i.e- pee before and after sex, clean myself thoroughly, wear cotton undies, drink tons of water and cranberry juice. I tried it all! Nothing worked. I was constantly in unimaginable pain. I was sent to a Urologist a few months ago after getting a horrendous kidney infection. To my dismay, they found nothing that could be causing me these problems. I have had at least a thousand STD checks and everything. They found nothing, and it made me really depressed. Finally he suggested that I take macrobid mono after everytime my hubby and I have sex. Well I hate to say it, but it doesn't always work. I have had 2 or 3 since I started the meds, but I have missed a few doses here and there. So the poi nt of my story is to tell every woman with this problem to keep trucking. Keep asking questions, and demanding answers. Every problem has a solution. I made an appointment next week to see another urologist. I know how terrible these UTIs can be. I hope that at least one person reads this, and gets help bc of it.
