After being misdiagnosed as a yeast infection number of times, my family doctor has realized that I've had a UTI caused by Group B Strep since May. I have been on antibiotics to kill it 4 times (5-7 day treatments depending on the antibiotic) and was also on antibiotics for a sonohystogram and bacterial vaginosis (which I actually didn't have, it was the UTI bothering me... they just kept insisting it was my vag that was the problem area....).
Here's my tie in to infertility with this - I feel crappy due to the UTI that won't go away. DH and I did a FET in Aug. which was unsuccessful. I felt HORRIBLE for that cycle - all the vaginal suppositories mixed with what I now know is a UTI was brutal and I think the UTI might have attributed to the lack of success. My family doctor has referred me to a urologist (still waiting on an appointment date) but my DH is 44. I'm 34 but he would really like to get moving on having another child, if that's what we're going to do. Although I do want another child, I just don't feel like my body is in good shape right now.
Has anyone else had experience with a UTI caused by Group B Strep (my doctor says it's not typical and more serious than a normal UTI b/c it isn't going away)? Did it hang on like this one, despite rounds of antibiotics? Any suggestions would be helpful, although I believe I've done all the normal things to get rid of a UTI (cranberry juice like crazy, lots of water, loose clothing, taking a probiotic, etc.) I just want it to be gone so I can move on and don't want to end up in months of urology appointments before I'm feeling normal again! Thanks in advance for any experience or tips you have.
