Frequent urination, unable to fully empty the bladder.Diagonsed with BV, taking antibiotics. Are they both related?

Hi, Im a 20 year old female and have recently been experiencing some issues when i urinate. I feel like I still have to go but for some reason cannot fully empty my bladder . When i do go its not a lot of urine that comes out at all, occasionally i can pee regularly.. I find myself going to the bathroom and then going to the bathroom again about 15 minutes later. This has been happening for about 3-4 days and im starting to become a little concerned. Ive been diagnosed with BV and heard from my dr that it can come back although they gave me antibiotics , and it has come back several times. Im not sure if that could have anything to do with my problem im experiencing but i thought i should mention that. oh and this last time i urinated i felt a little burning!? please help!

You will need to get a urine c/s study done to see if this is more than bacterial vaginosis, or a E Coli UTI (urinary tract infection). Untreated UTIs can be very problematic.
I hope you have had a scan of the bladder (urinary system) to exclude any bladder pathologies.
If sexually active, STDs must also be excluded to ensure the right treatment is provided.

Cranberry juice has been shown to lower the frequency of UTIs presumably as the active ingredients do not allow the bacteria to produce biofilms. So you can try this.
Another alternative would be to discuss with your Gynaecologist about tolterodine for an overactive bladder if urine c/s studies are always negative.

Hope this helps.
Best Wishes for 2013.
