Doctor

A:   Hello,

Thanks for trusting ATD about your health care. I can understand your concern here.

I have gone through your history and I can understand that it is quite difficult to treat recurrent UTI.
First and foremost important thing is to rule out the cause of recurrent UTI. In my opinion multiple fibroid is a cause of your problem.
So i would recommend you to consult a Gynecologist and get yourself examined and ultrasound scan done to see the size and position of fibroid and it can be treated accordingly, either through myomectomy or through medication.

Simultaneously you should go for urine routine/microscopic and culture and sensitivity to see the organism and treat accordingly.

You should drink a lot of water, cranberry juice and maintain hygiene.
Hope it is useful, feel free to ask more.
Regards
