Thanks Gramma x
Patti about 3 UTIs back I think it was I suggested to hubby he might have a UTI symptomless and to go see doc, he had antibiotics for it then was clear. Other than once though he hasn't picked it up off me. I do think my little one might have one at the moment... I'm going to call the doc for him and get him seen today. It's not just intimately that these things can be passed on, I worry just sharing the bath is probably enough. This one is nasty, several days later i still have tummy cramps, though of course it's always worst in the mornings after not peeing all night.
They have said I may need an operation to put a stent in the urethra I think it is, as women of "my age" who've carried several babies the tube can kink and then the urine stays in the kink, like the Ubend on the toilet I suppose and then the infection rises up through the body.
My kidneys are really sore too so I guess this one will take a few different antibiotics, that's whats happened previously.. my bgs are coming down slowwwwly, so i think the infection is starting to relent.
Jenny BV is the fishy smelling one isn't it? I was tested for that once but it was just thrush at the time. Haven't got any discharge and I'd notice! I still notice when I ovulate and I'm not even actually looking for it! Must admit though these UTIs reduce sex life to zero, too much pain!
