Why am I having urinary tract infection?
Q: I am a 25 years old married man having urinary tract infection for the past few years and taking Urimax 0.4 mg pill for the same. I have premature ejaculation problem too and am unable to hold the erection for more than half a minute. I have consulted a sexologist and as per the clinical analysis I don’t have any problems. But my prolactin value is 29.61 ng/ml. So I am taking Clofronil 25 mg pill for the last 2 months but still my problem continues. What are the ways to overcome this problem? Do I have urinary tract infection due to high prolactin value?
A:There always has to be a cause for urinary infection in a young person like you. First, the presence of infection is to be proved and then the cause needs to be ascertained for the infection with appropriate investigations. It is possible that you may have already undergone necessary tests by the urologist you are seeing. You need to ask him whether you still need to continue with medications you have been prescribed. The level of prolactin reported in your case is apparently insignificant. Please see an endocrinologist to confirm its significance.
