I have had a UTI every 3-4 weeks for 2 years. Literally.
I take cranberry supplements & drink juice, never ever drink pop, have taken a bath once in the last year, & mostly avoid sex w my DH because that can trigger them too. There are some months where I take the antibiotics & within 2 days I have another UTI. I've tried Cipro, Macrobid, & many other antibiotics. None has a different result.
When I asked my DR why I get them so often she said, "oh some women just get them frequently. Try drinking more water." I have frequent heartburn from all the cranberries & if I drink TONS of water. Even when I have the UTI's my urine will be clear & not dark like it used to be from all the H2O intake.
I have NO IDEA what to think! I'm up at 4 am...on vaca in FL with my family...crying because I have yet ANOTHER UTI!!! I feel helpless!
Has anyone else ever had these problems? Was it more than a UTI?
