I've had UTIs since November culture tested. I have found I have a prolapse, urine retention and thrush. Can this be the reason UTI won't clear up?
Yes: Retention can be partial or complete. Obviously if one cannot void at all the bladder can only stretch so far until it becomes very painful. When someone can empty partially but leave more than 100 cc behind, then frequency of voids increases along with the risk of uti. The cause should be found- most older women have a fallen bladder, and younger ones can have spasms in the pelvic floor muscles. ...Read more

Loss of bladder contractility is another cause. See a urologist. ...Read more

Sympathetic Overload: After an overwhelming sympathetic stimulation occurs (horrific fear), the sympathetic portion may shut down temporarily. The unopposed parasympathetic system, in concert with loss of sympathetic tone, can then cause contraction of the bladder wall with relaxation of the urinary sphincter.
