Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
What are your exact symptoms?
well, let me start off by saying two days prior to this problem, I took an hour long spin class on a bike that was too high. My symptoms are the following: burning after urination (lasts about 20 minutes after). On other days I have frequent need to urinate, but only a small amount comes out. I also have mild pain in my left ovary region and spasm like sensations in my lower region where my uterus is).
what is your age?
have you taken any antibiotics?
I was put on macrobid for two days when waiting for the first culture to come back. they found only white blood cells in the second culture.
Was the first culture before antibiotics
Ok, the second culture was negative secondary to the antibiotics. However, the fact that the first urine culture was negative for bacteria without antibiotics means you do not have a true UTI. Likely causes of UTI symptoms without a positive culture are endometriosis, interstitial cystitis and should be further evaluated by your doctor with ultrasound and pelvic exam.
okay, is IC a chronic condition where I will feel like this forever?
yes it is a chronic condition. Some people respond positively to treatment, while for others treatment can be complicated
okay . thank you.
