I get really , really bad UTI's that give no symptoms and eventually move up to the kidneys and cause hospitalization. Went through 1.5 years with zero answers except "some urinary retention" so sent to a Urologist. He prescribed me Flomax. Infections continues. This song and dance goes on for 6 more mths. where he prescribes, at my urging since he said it was BPH and only BPH, avodart. This helps and cuts down infections from 12 per year to 1 per year. Problem is , with these medications my infections are clearly caused by too much sex. I'll explain: My wife has to sometimes take contract work 400 KM away. When she is away I have to go visit and we fit in 6 mths. of sex in 1 week. When I get back home I get an infection guaranteed. My urologist insists, absolutely insists, the sex has nothing to do with the onset of the infections. It's only coincidence. However the last 4 infections I had on Flomax/Avodart have come after my "visit". I really don't get what's going on here: My personal experience is far off from what the urologist says. He also said prostatitis doesn't exists. I have BPH and that's the end of the story but yet he can't explain why I am still getting infections even though my prostate is in normal range and I take flomax.
