UTI or interstitial cystitis
I've have been suffering with this the urologist may call it interstitial cystitis, I call it urinary tract infections. I have been dealing with this for over 10 years now. This has been the most miserable feeling ever. I've taken every antibiotic there is to take, Floxin, Bactrium, Cipro and now Macrobid. All of these meds work to clear up the infection but it comes back within a week or two especially after sex. My urologist told me that interstitial cystitis isnt suppose to show no bacteria in the urine, well however I have bacteria in my urine everytime I take a urine test. Ive had a cat scan and ultra sound and in which nothing shows up. I've even had a partial hysterectomy done because my gynecologist and urologist thought that my cycle may have been causing stress on the bladder. Well as you see nothing has changed. I even had the urologist do the dillation thing which was very uncomfortable and also she did a cystoscopy and didnt find anything. Does anyone have any suggestions.
