Every time i made a urine test the doctor says that i have a bacteria in my urine but they don't know exactly what it is. i made a flexible cystoscopy, i been to a gynecologist,i made all test for transmissible diseases, and everything is ok.. i would like to know which test i can make to find the reason for my infections, because every time i go to my GP they say that in normal, so i don't need to worry.

Welcome to ehealthforum

Pain during urination along with occasional blood can be due to various reasons as Kidney infection,bladder infection,stones,trauma,endometriosis of bladder etc.Since the symptoms are present inspite of repeated medications it could be indicative of anu underlying abnormality.Cystoscopy which you had is done to see the bladder so that possibility is ruled out.
Consider visiting a Urologist and get investigations as USG scan(to rule out any Kidney stones)Urine culture and Blood tests done to rule out the exact cause.In case of any suspicion of Kidney disease you can get a Intravenous Pyelogram done which is an X ray of the Urinary Tract.
Hope it helps,

Take Care!
