    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Why would I have had 3 UTI's in the last 3 months and urine culture is negative, but blood on urine test?

    How were you diagnosed with the UTI? Is the DR's doing the cultrues to say it's not a UTI and you are experiencing symptoms still? I have had a UTI for a few months in a row, diagnosed, because my urine was smelling super stale and strong....I realized it was due to me not drinking enough water, and not urinating enough in the day. I now take a large bottle of water to work and drink all day long, that has seemed to resolve it. Best of luck to you!
