What causes recurrence of urine infections?

Dear Doctor, I have been having for the past 2 to 3 years urine infections quite often . Every 4 to 5 months I would get it. For the past few months I have been diagnosed with blood ( which can not be seen by naked eyes) coming in my urine. I got a test done and this was the report -Colour-Pale yellow , Appearance-Hazy , Deposit-Present , Reaction- Acidic , Sugar -Nil , Albumin- Trace , Phosphate-Nil , Pus cells-4-5 HPF , RBCs- Nil , E.P Cells -5/6 HPF , Casts- Nil , Crystals -Nil Could you tell me what it means? What should I be doing next?

Hello,

Your mentioned urine report doesn't show any red blood cells in urine means blood is not present.

The pus cells also within the limit.

So it is not suggestive of urinary tract infection.

However, if you are suffering from repeated UTI than you should rule out diabetes by random blood sugar estimation.

If you are sexually active than it's advisable to wash genitals after sex and urination after sex to prevent UTI.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
