Honeymoon cystitis

I began having awful UTI's after entering into a relationship 3 years ago. I went to a urologist who eventually just diagnosed me with honeymoon cystitis. I was prescribed Microdantin and now take the antibiotic pill every time after I have sex. This has worked just fine for over a year and a half now. The problem in this is that my urologist is awful. He constantly judges me and asks unethical questions like if I am married or need to have sex that much in an extremely judgmental tone. He has cut back my regular prescription to a partial because of his view that I am having sex too much (it's only 3-4 times a week with a long term partner). He has discussed no medical reason for cutting my prescription in half such as an eventual immunity to the antibiotic, just that I shouldn't be having sex outside of marriage that much. The question I have is can I get my general care Nurse Practitioner to prescribe me the same antibiotics without the hassle or going to this biased old urologist every six months?

Re: Honeymoon cystitis

I think so, and that would be fine, but in addition, be sure to urinate before and especially soon after sex to flush any bacteria out of the bladder. This will help a lot. Drinking cranberry juice 3-4 times a week to acidify urine may also help. Every day is fine too, if you can do it. Bacteria grow less in acid urine. I don't blame you for not wanting to be judged about your long term relationship and sexual frequency. It is inappropriate for a healthcare worker to limit a prescription based on his personal views of morality, IMO.

I would run and not walk to another Dr. or the Nurse Practitioner. I think a Nurse Practitioner can prescribe anything but narcotics. Maybe you need another Urologist. I use to get the Urethra stretched and it helps prevent the infections. Now I get infections but Dr. thinks from the Kidney stones I have left in there.

It is no one's business about your sex life, frequency or marital status/sex. The most the GYN ever asked me was what type of birth control I use. No Dr. should ever make you feel uncomfortable.
