Repeat urinary tract infections: What can I do?

Posted by birdntroutlady @birdntroutlady, Mar 27, 2012

I am having repeated urinary tract infections with a variety of bacteria cultured. I have just learned I have fibromyalgia. I need help and don't know who to see. I was also exposed to a lot of mold (Cladosporium, Aspergillus) when I was teaching school. I have retired, but the UTIs have not.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Women's Health group.

I'm not sure I can request it when my Doc says if there no pain it OK to leave it. The problem is it could actually be my pain and uti problem. He doesn't like patients playing doctor.

I would get up and walk away. Smug loser! If he’s not proactive he wants patients to sit and drool bc he says so. Find another dr who will discuss w you.

I too have a variety of bacteria. I do not get the Ecoli, have not for years. Ninety percent of the utis are Ecoli. My Uro Doctor has never even attempted to talked to me about why mine are he uncommon strands. I had one in May 2021 and another in July 2021 and am frustrated that he does not question the why's when it comes to my issues, just gives me antibiotics sends me away.

I'm from Cincinnati Ohio and the closest would be Minnesota and Florida. Is getting an appointment as simple as just calling and making an appointment, or do I have to go through my Primary Doctor? I believe my preference would be Florida.

Hi Daphne,
You can either self-refer or get a physician referral to request an appointment. Calling is free, so I suggest calling both the Minnesota and Florida locations to find out more. Here is the contact information for Mayo Clinic locations:
