Hi, I have been suffering with monthly positive UTI’s results. I’ve been treated each time with heavy antibiotics, but the UTI immediately comes back after. Does anyone have any helpful information? I have just made an appt with a urologist.

      Are the cultures also positive or just the dip test?

        @Acz Yes the cultures as well. I currently have Enterococcus Faecalis

          @LIGHTINTHEDARK I started taking vitamin C everyday and noticed a lot less UTIs after a while. I started taking it for other reasons however I used to have UTIs all of the time and I haven’t had one for months now (same bacteria strain as you at the moment)

One suggestion is to try taking a probiotic, as it may help some people with frequent UTIs. Additionally, a user mentioned that their OBGYN prescribed nitrofurantoin, an antibiotic taken after every intimate moment, which helped prevent UTIs for them. Seeing a urologist is a good step towards finding a solution.
