Thank you for the quick reply.
The symptoms you have described of having recurrent UTI & diagnosed with grade 1 prostatitis,this seems to be the most probable cause of your recurrent UTI.
With age, the prostate gland begin to grow.The growth may eventually cause problems with urination, because the gland pinches off the urethra as it increases its size & you are more prone to get UTI.
Your pain & discomfort goes away while you are on antibiotics. You need to get treatment for the root cause that is for prostatitis.
There are two main types of medications for its treatment: alpha-blockers(Tamsulosin O) and 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors( Finasteride and dutasteride) relax muscles near the prostate while 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors shrink the prostate gland. Various studies have proved that a combination of alpha-blockers and 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors provides much better relief.
Your urologist will prescribe you 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors( Finasteride and dutasteride Alpha-blockers).
Antibiotics will only temporarily cure the infection & you will keep on having repeated infections.So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your urologist for the prescription medication so as to treat the root cause that is prostatitis & hence the symptoms of UTI.
Hope this helped.
