UTI again probably...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Based on your medical history you have provided, I suspect that it could be UTI again. However, as your symptoms are not classic, Unrinalysis is mandatory to decide further plan of action.

Just right after my period. I wasnt eating properly this month and drinking fluid due to stress. How would I prevent this? Should I worry coz I had 2 UTI in a span of four weeks?

Brief Answer:
UTI are very common in females of your age group.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

UTI are very common in females of your age group. Nothing big to worry about it. However, cause for it should be identified through investigations. Antibiotic prophylaxis would be suggested based upon physical examination findings and number of attacks per month.

Same time, I would also suggest to maintain personal hygiene very carefully- washing genital areas before and after sexual activity etc.

Thank
