Suggest Treatment For Recurrent UTIs

I have been having UTIs on a frequent basis the past two or three years. My doctor has run cultures and has found nothing; he has offered no resolution of my problem. I have had three UTIs in the past four months; the last two were less that a month apart, one diagnosed July 1, and the next just yesterday, July 25. I drink cranberry juice all the time and have even started using a product called Cystex, and still am having this problem. What should I do?

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

You need to consider imaging of the urinary tract. There may be a structural cause for the repeated urinary tract infections.

If one is identified, it is possible treatment of the area may help.

You should also consider seeing an urologist or nephrologist. These are doctors that specifically deal with the urinary tract.

I hope this helps
