At Women’s Pelvic Surgery of North Jersey we are in contact with many patient’s, young women before menopause and many women after menopause, who come to the office to consult with me with the diagnosis of recurrent UTI. They usually receive multiple courses of antibiotic treatment without success and become very frustrated since the recurrance of symptoms happen frequently. Symptoms usually include burning on urination, frequent urination and urinary urgency, and also very common that patient’s report symptoms worsen after intercourse. Symptoms may last a few hours after intercourse and often give the patient the impression of having a urinary tract infection after intercourse. Many patients with these symptoms do not have UTI’s and this is irritation and inflammation of pelvic nerve caused by different etiology. Most common cause on younger age patients is endometriosis and pelvic infection, which is different than bladder infection. We highly advise to have a consult if you are suffering from recurrent UTI’s or any of above symptoms. This may save you many additional treatments of antibiotics.
If you are experiencing above problem/symptoms please make appointment to see Dr. Khashayar Shakiba.
