I am 31 and have had 5-6 UTI's in the past 6 months. The first, second and third times they did a urine test and it showed UTI. Never had one before, am very clean and am not sexually active. Now I have seen a urologist and am waiting 3-4 weeks to get tests done. I have abdominal pain especially in lower left side, back pain, discomfort when peeing but not burning, and blood in urine. Can you tell me what it may be. I think I may have ovarian cysts or something. Any help would be appreciated.

@Guest

it is UTI and what you can do is to take in adequate diet with a lot of fluids and vitamin C. do not keep urine, void when needed.

We should not ignore Urinary Tractinfection if it increases if affects kidney. we should drink lot of water during the day and should have check on our urinary pattern everyday. few years back when I got minor infection I consulted Dr. Manu Sobti in Hindusabha hospital Ghatkopar. He is realy fantastic doctor he thoroughly checked me even it was minor infection and I got relief permanently since then I advise all my friends to take care of urine infection I advise them to take treatment from Dr. sobti.
