    What's going on?
    An_241748 posted:
    Okay I'm constantly going to the bathroom, sometimes as frequent as every thirty minutes. This has been going on since about mid November. My doctor took a urine sample, and I don't have a UTI, so they sent it off for a culture, and they got the results. And I had strep B virus in there. But I was on my period when they took it.

    I've been googling since then, and I found an article on here about Internal cysitis, but I thought it would be worth asking a question first.

    So... Does anyone have any advice?

    Hello An_241748 and welcome!

    You sound like you're on the right track by consulting with your doctor. Nurse Jane wrote a blog post about the UTI that Isn't , and it may be helpful to you. If your symptoms continue, then you may want to talk about getting a referral to a urologist or gyno-urologist to get an expert opinion on what's causing you symptoms.

    Please keep us updated on how you're doing,
