i have been to the urologist several times now for pain while i urinate.
i have these symptoms once a month for the past two years now. only twice did the test results show no bacteria. all the other times ecolli shows up. the doctor prescribes me bactrum and it goes away. i did have a test done which showed red spots in my bladder. the second time i had the test they were not there. i've also had my bladder inflated which did not help. im still seeing the urologist and have had no conclusive results yet.
i would just like to know why i keep having ecolli enter my urine. im very clean, especially before and after intercourse. i would love some advice for this painful problem i have every month.
