Wow!!! So I just went to a normal "Family Care" clinic near me and had a urine test done. The result came back totally clear with no sign of a UTI or any other kidney or bladder infection at all! The doctor specifically said there were no proteins, white blood cells or nitrites !
Strangely, the doc still wanted to call in a prescription for Antibiotics "just in case" I should need them in the future! He went ahead and put a standing prescription into a pharmacy that I can get at any time for...CIPRO! I asked him if there was another Antibiotic he could prescribe that would be milder and he said no. According to him, Cipro gets into the kidneys the fastest, works really well, and "has few side effects" (!!!). Well of course we know that's not true, and I definitely don't want to take Antibiotics anyways, so none of that really matters. Besides, I DON'T HAVE AN INFECTION!!! The only reason I went to the clinic was to get a good urine test done.
So that is really good news. BUT...I still have irritation and sensitivity in general, so I know I have my same problem (and susceptibility to UTI's), so I'm continuing to use the herbs and probiotics I've been taking for the last week or so.
