I had a bladder infection last month , which started with an irregular bleeding and then pain in my lower back and abdomen . The doc prescribed me antibiotics and painkiller in a weeks time i was fine . But this month again the same symptoms have recurred . i Had irregular bleeding yesterday , and today it has started paining . i was sexually active , and was using condoms . what i dont understand.....is that what is causing this infection. I do clean my self after every intercourse ..can anyone suggests me what/why this is happening ?
You should also be urinating after sex to push out all the bacteria that may have entered your urethra. Sex is most often the cause of bladder infections. Go to the bathroom as soon after sex as you can.
i do go to the barthroom immediately after sex , clean my self and pass urine... with out fail !!
Then you must be getting them some other way. You can talk to your doctor about preventative antibiotics. Which are low dose antibiotics you would take after sex or other times when you think you may be triggering an infection. Keep a diary of what you are doing and when you get the infections. It takes repeated infections before doctors will do the preventative therapy ~ and if you know can pinpoint the cause, you are halfway there.
I get urinary tracy infections alot and it is frustrationg. I do know that parfumed soap can cause it or bubble baths, wiping from back to front, carefull on the laundry detergent use hypoallergenic stuff for your underwear, and I had a problem that my bladder would not empty all the way so I had to get my uerethra stretched (ouch). Good luck!
I've had 2 UTI's this past year, and it was because i was too busy to drink much water. You need it to flush out your system in addition to external hygiene. I have been drinking water like crazy and have not had a bladder infection since. When you are taking pills and trying to get rid of the infection, you have to drink tons of water as well. Also, drink cranberry juice, it prevents bacteria from sticking to your vaginal walls.
you could also try taking cranberrie pills every day along with your daily vitamins. This is also a form a preventative therapy and all you have to do is go to a doctor. And as stating previously drink plenty of water. But keeping a log of your infections is a great idea. If you see a pattern then go to a doc.
I have had the problem of constant U.T.Is since i was young my doctor diagnosed me with reflex of the kidney. as for what i do i drink lots of cranberry juice and take showers at least twice daily to keep that area clean. Even if you are sexually active and do all the right things it can still cause an infection. Check with your doctor as soon as possible
Urinary tract infection can be cured with homeopthy. Staphysagria is the most common remedy and will work in about 60% of the cases. Other cases will need a different homeopathic remedy.
If you take antibiotics for bladder infections repeatedly you risk creating an antibiotic resistant urinary tract infection. Something the doctors don't tell you about but believe me they do exist. If you have chronic UTI problems find yourself a good homeopath. I did and I am soooo glad. I never get UTI any more and the last couple of infections I had cured with homeopathy. It was a long time ago now.
