oh you poor thing ... don't you hate being a woman sometimes the darn stuff we put up with. Hope u feel better soon

oh u poor thing, i went through the same thing but i had to go the hospital and put on a drip with anti-biotics it sux and that gave me thrush as well.

i hope you get better soon.

ouch indeed. The BEST thing you can do is drink lots of water to help flush the bacteria out of your urinary system. The more you drink the easier it is to urinate also as the bacteria become dituted in the urine (if that makes sense). The only way I can describe it is like cordial, a little bit of water added the cordial is still strong, but the more water added, the cordial is weaker.

you poor love, the worst thing about having a UTI is that feeling of having to to the loo all the time! Perhaps equally worse is the potential of getting thrush when you have to take antibiotics to get rid of the UTI. You could try acidophyllis tablets (over the counter) to help with the thrush.

hope you are better soon,

just got a call from the doc to say the antibotics she prescribed will work with the type bacteria that was in the sample so I have to go get a new script she will just leave at the reception desk so dont need a consultation

best think you can do is get the correct diagnosis for the uti so u can get the correct antibiotics……….mean time buy some Ural (alkalizes) drink 4-5 sachets a day they are awful and do really work
