THanks everyone for your replies. Am not too sure if I am actually posting in the right area as haven't had a urine sample taken. The bacteria was found through a swab, although am not too sure where is infected as have lower ab pain, which seems to be relieved slightly when I urinate....... maybe it is in the bladder??? and sometimes aching in lower back. Doc should get results tomorrow, she is even checking for chlyamidia.......which seems v. v. unlikely. Anyway, will wait and see what the results come back with.
