Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

Why wont my bladder infections go away after takikng many antibotics?

Other diseases can mimic UTI such as: interstitial cystitis & sterile pyuria. ...Read more

Not likely.: Unless your infections were associated with an std like chlamydia, you are probably ok. If you are using ovulation kits, be aware that it is usually the day after the test is positive that you ovulate. It may be time to have your partner get a semen analysis and see your gynecologist for an evaluation though since you are hitting that 1 year mark. ...Read more

Your question is a valid one that should be discussed with your physician who can take a proper detailed history and physical exam. Good luck! ...Read more

Bladder infections from swimming pools, how do I treat it? My 8 year old daughter get a bladder infection everytime she goes into a swimming pool, is there something i can give her to help avoid this.

Any : Any child that has had multiple urinary tract infections should have a work-up to see if they have an anatomic abnormality that predisposes them to this problem. Often this involves not only a urinalysis, but also imaging such as ultrasound or a dye study to make sure the kidneys, bladder, and all the connections in between are ok. It is not normal for a child to get a urinary tract infection every time they go swimming. Give your child's doctor a call. They can either suggest a work-up or direct you to a pediatric urologist that can help. Good luck! ...Read more

I've had utis for a couple of years and bladder infections now and yeast along with BV and vagnitis what do I do i'm going to gyn again soon?

While u wait: While you wait to see your gyn, drink lots of water and try cranberry juice or cranberry tablets to help with UTI symptoms. If you get a fever or think you have another actual infection, call to get in sooner. For yeast, you can use over the counter monistat -7. Don't use it for a few days before your appt because it will make it hard to see yeast or bv. Reducing sugar and carbs prevents yeast. ...Read more

I have perineal burning that lessens when standing. I have been checked and treated for yeast, bacterial, and bladder infections. This has been going on for about two months. No itching, no visible sign of anything. Water helps--- doing that about 3-4

I : I am so sorry that you are going through this. I assume that you have sought out a second opinion. You have probably been told to reduce any sugar foods in your diet, including alcohol. There are over the counter products that reduce itching and discomfort; vagisil is one brand, but there are also others and you can discuss this with your pharmacist. I don't know if you are peri-menopausal, but if you are, there are medications such as estrogen-type creams that can lessen symptoms. ...Read more
