    Re: 2nd uti in less than 6 months

    Hi. I am assuming you had this verified by a doctor....

    UTIs come from bacteria. Make sure you are wiping from front to back, never back to front...that you are urinating before and after sex if you are having sex- and that you are not using scented products for hygiene. Stay away from douches and scented wipes. Plain old soap and water is all that you need to use...its a self cleaning mechanism our private parts!

    You might also want to have your partner checked out if you have one. UTIs can be passed from one partner to another so assuming you are having sex, if your partner isnt being treated you could be passing it back and forth.

    What did your doctor say?

    Re: 2nd uti in less than 6 months

    Hi Thislilpigg33.

    I have dealt with UTIs all my life and have never passed blood clots. Are you on your period? It is possible to have a UTI and also be on your period. Was your urine sample sent out to be cultured? A urine culture will tell your Dr. what bacteria and the antibiotics best suited to clear the bacteria up. Be sure to have your urine re-checked a few days after finishing the antibiotic to make sure

    It's not uncommon to have frequent UTIs. There are some precautions you can take to possibly minimize UTIs.

    (1) Wipe front to back, never back to front
    (2) Make sure your partner washes their hands before having sex. UTIs are not sexually transmitted and you cannot pass UTIs back and forth. Clean hands means no bacteria is introduced were it is not wanted.
    (3) Urinate before and after having sex.
    (4) Stay hydrated. Water, water, water.
    (5)When you need to urinate do not hold it. The more/longer you "wait" to go the more you increase the chance of a UTI.
    (6) Cranberry supplements can help decrease or minimize UTIs

    Re: 2nd uti in less than 6 months

    Thanks to both who replied. yes it was confirmed by dr that it was uti, but today i saw my primary and while my bladder is still hurting there is no more bacteria in urine since i started antibiotics few days ago, he prescribed more antibiotics because i have a slight fever, will recheck urine in a couple days. he sususpects i passed a kidney stone, my last uti a few days later i passed a kidney stone. but i guess this time it happened at same time:/ dr also prescribed a med to keep stones from forming or dissolving them, something like that

    I am sorry you have/had kidney stones. This would be the reason you were passing blood. There are medications to help dissolve kidney stones, hope you are feeling better soon

    Re: 2nd uti in less than 6 months

    Have you had the bacteria cultured for specifics....for treatment?

    Have you had a bladder scope (cystoscopy)...if not, push for one. My concern would be interstitial cystitis.

    You could try d.mannos, cranberry capsules, or other additions that help prevent the bacteria from sticking to the bladder wall. Another helpful thing would be good probiotics for balancing intestinal flora.

    Re: 2nd uti in less than 6 months

    hello, ive had a cystoscopy in the past. As of now no more bacteria. i was in another state when diagnosed with uti, and came back to my state and was already doing a lil better when i saw my primary. we pretty sure i passed a stone. i have passed some in the past but this time never felt pain in kidneys only in bladder plus lots of blood and clots.

    What did your dr prescribe to dissolve the stones? I have one small stone on the left side but my dr has never mentioned giving me anything to dissolve it. I have frequent UTIís and I feel sure they are caused by my kidney stone.
