I'm 24 and have been suffering from regular UTIs for around three years. For most people they are an annoyance but for me they are extremely painful and debilitating! I've had around 15 occurrences in the last 2 years and have always taken trimethiprim, which has been the only antibiotic to work for me. This week I got a UTI and started my normal course of antibiotics which seemed to work for a day, but today it has come back with a vengeance which makes me think the tablets aren't working this time. There is blood in my urine and I am in a lot of pain going to the toilet. I have struggled for 2 years to get a referral to urology despite my symptoms and the last two urine cultures have turned up negative (despite the dipstick test indicating there was an infection??). This problem is now affecting my quality of life and I am running out of options! I have even had an ultrasound to look for blockages, which also showed nothing of concern. I desperately want to know what is underlying as these infections are beginning to affect my quality of life and my work!
