E coli repeats often
I checked my Urine culture at local Lab. It shows E Coli 80,000 count. Few months ago I checked Urine culture test on my Urologist advice at same Lab it was showing same result. After taking Antibiotic for two weeks. Than as per Urologist advice I stopped Antibiotic, after a break of 8 days I did Urine culture test. It was showing more E C oli. The Urologist changed medicine but again now I see E Coli. Ultrasound KUB done, it is normal. Semen culture done another infection found. Again semen culture done after taking Antibiotic medicine but infection found. This Hospital Urologist unable to diagnose the problem. I get sharp pain in abdomen sometimes in rectum, Urine bad smell. How to solve this problem? What test to do further? Why recurring Urine infection E Coli and Semen culture test shows infection? Clarify.

Hi.... Urinary tract infections can be painful, but you can take steps to ease your discomfort until antibiotics treat the infection. Follow these tips: Drink plenty of water. Water helps to dilute your urine and flush out bacteria. Avoid drinks that may irritate your bladder.Avoid coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks containing citrus juices or caffeine until your infection has cleared. They can irritate your bladder and tend to aggravate your frequent or urgent need to urinate....
