I have gone to a Urologist , has done test and could not find anythign wrong with me. He has put me on Rapaflo 8mg capsules but does not work all the times.

Hi,thanks for query.It is possible that your urinary bladder muscles are lax and not working properly.This laxity leads to retention and in turn infection repetedly.Please discuss this with your urologist and go for endoscopic for urinary bladder.For repeted urine infection please go for urine culture.Please also take help of gynecologist in this.
