Brief Answer:
not much evidence if std or uti

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for writing back i understand your concern about STD/UTI... IN your case STD doesn't seem to be the case as you have one comitted partner no multiple contacts. There is no rash no bruning micturation ir anything and obviously your doctor didn't find anything which could show any infection so there shouldn't be any problem.

Finesteride usually takes much longer than a month to work but tamuslosin usually works in few days if it doesn't then we alter the dose if you still have urinary frequency you might need to get doses altered by seeing your foctor again.

As far as your concern about UTI goes I believe there isn't much to worry about there is not much of evidence.

Regards.

Brief Answer:
Change of dose and then surgery is the option

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for writing back,

Yes dosage can me pushed up a bit and if it that doesn't work then minimally invasive procedures like TURP can be done with due consideratioj of complications and pre requisites.

I would advise you to visit your urologist soon.
