Dr Brims :

When did this start?

Customer :

about a week ago

Dr Brims :

have you had any recent unprotected sex?

Customer :

no please

Dr Brims :

Okay, any change in urinary habits?

Customer :

not really

Dr Brims :

Okay, this is likely a sign of dribbling post urination, if there is no change in urinary symptoms or pain with urination, or discharge, it is unlikely to be an STI, it is possible it could be a urinary tract infection

Customer :

ok

Dr Brims :

Are you there?

Customer :

yes please

Customer :

any medication/treatment?

Dr Brims :

it may require antibiotics to treat, but first, you need a urine analysis

Customer :

I just completed a comprehensive test last week and a thourough urine analysis was carried out but this was not mentioned as the focus was different

Customer :

let's go for the antibiotics

Dr Brims :

It should include a urine culture

Customer :

so what can be the cause of urinary tract infection?

Dr Brims :

It may be caused by previous scarring in the urethra, or prostate enlargement also increases the chances of getting it in men

Customer :

my wellness test indicates no problem with my prostate

Dr Brims :

Okay

Customer :

so what do you advice then Doc?

Dr Brims :

I advise a urine culture

Customer :

my prefer option is to have some antibiotics and then visit the hospital later

Customer :

the wellness test drained my pocket or now - ha ha

Customer :

for now

Dr Brims :

Ok

Customer :

thanks for understanding

Dr Brims :

Is there anything else you would like to ask on this topic?

Customer :

not really other than the antibiotic prescription

Dr Brims :

Customer :

Dr Brims :
