Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Urologist is UTI Dr: Or urogynecologist. Wonder why recurrent uti's are "weird". Not uncommon in women, & more common when women reach menopause. Could utis be related to sex, in which case u should urinate after sex to prevent utis, wear cotton underwear, no thongs, shower rather than bathe, avoid or treat constipation & urinate at regular intervals. Cranberry juice, extract or tabs can help prevent utis.
