Recurring Cystitis - please help!
Ok, for the last year or so, i've been getting recurring cystitis. I've been to the doctors every time, and they put me on a course of antibiotics abd it goes, but it comes back very frequently (ie, monthly). It's not always sex related, i get it randomly too, and it's really started to depress me because it hurts so much and the antibiotics take two days to kick in. I've spoken to my doctor about it and she's taken urine samples and they show that i have 'contamination' (ie, bacteria in my bladder) for the time when i don't have cystitis, but she says that there's nothing they can do except treat it as i get it, which is frustrating. Has anyone else had this, or does anyone know anything that might help?
