So I've had about 8 urinary tract infections in the past 10 years. I had one was 11, 12, 15 and 3 in 2015 (20 yo) and two this year. The doctor said I should classify two of the three I had last year as one as technically it was the same infection because the antibiotics didnt kill them all off.
Moving on I got my second one this year and I wanted to see what you lovely individuals thought.
I've had two infections in each year 2 years in a row, both around the exact same time (April-May and September-October). This period of time is exactly when the last assignments are due for uni, the most stressful period where everything is due. This time is particularly hard because we also lost the family pet whom I had an extremely close bond with.
The doctor says that the infections are highly likely triggered by stress and anxiety compromising my immune system. What do you guys think?
Another one I wanted to discuss was what my doctor said about how normal my infections are. She said that getting two urinary tract infections a year for women who do get urinary tract infections like I do is very very normal and that I should not be worried.
Again, what do you guys think?
I'm very interested to hear what you all have to say, let me know!
