Petition Improve the diagnosis, testing and treatment of UTI’s
Many females are suffering with chronic UTI’s. The current testing offered is inadequate. In a lot of cases antibiotics are given without any cultured bacteria - often not working at all. The science is out there. It needs to be seen as the serious infection it is and treated immediately.
Every female I know has either suffered chronically or knows someone who has. It is seen as a ‘common problem’ for females - therefore discredited by doctors and others. It severely affects daily life - lack of exercise - days/weeks off work - unable to have sex - needing to be near a toilet - decrease in overall health and immunity etc... Testing and treatment needs to be vastly improved.
