I am a patient of the Professor, but at my first appointment & my follow up appointment my counts have been zero.

He is happy to treat the symptoms, of which mine are urethral burning & bladder pressure making me feel like I need to go constantly, and has prescribed antibiotics.

If anyone has been in my situation, was the diagnosis something other than embedded infection?

In my last letter I noticed he very briefly mentioned mycoplasma, so I have been reading up. Mycogpalma genitalium (Mgen) can cause Urethritis - I told my GP lack in August that I thought I had Urethritis rather than a UTI.

Any experience would be helpful.

Hi there

How dilute is your urine when you provide your sample? I always make sure to limit my fluid intake 4/6 hours prior to an appointment so that any pus cells are more easily identifiable.
