How To Deal With UTI Does Not Go Away?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask
The frequency of urination for adults in a day is 6-7 times. The frequency can increase up to 10 times if you drink more water. However, an increase in urination frequency that is more than normal and interferes with your activities including sleep can occur due to the following diseases and conditions:
Urinary tract infections Urinary tract stones (including kidney stones) Overactive bladder Diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus Sexually transmitted infections Pregnancy Anxious disorders Consuming diuretic drugs Consuming too much caffeine or alcohol Digging anamnesis (history of patient complaints) more fully and performing physical examination and support can differentiate the conditions above. In urinary tract infections, in addition to increased urinary frequency the more dominant symptoms are pain when urinating, urinary volume is little and difficult to come out even though there is a feeling of urination, there is blood in the urine, incomplete feeling after urination, abdominal pain down, nausea, and fever. Urine analysis can also determine the presence or absence of urinary tract infections.
If you experience menstrual delays and there is a history of sexual intercourse, you should check the test pack independently to detect the presence or absence of pregnancy. Early pregnancy can make a person feel uncomfortable when urinating. There are still many other conditions that can also cause late menstruation, so if the results of a negative test pack and menstruation do not come, you should continue the examination with an obstetrician.
For problems like you, you can be seen by a specialist in internal medicine. Because the problem of increased urinary frequency is not always caused by interference with the urinary tract only. The doctor may request other investigations such as urine analysis, ultrasonography, plain abdominal radiography, abdominal CT scan, examination of sexually transmitted diseases, and neurological investigations if there are suspected neurological abnormalities that regulate the voiding process. Appropriate treatment will be given by a doctor depending on the results of the diagnosis based on the results of the examination. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
