    I got GP to call this morning luckily I have a special contraption to get a sample for testing.
    It is a UTI plus garden bird I had to ask neighbor to get antibiotic cream and pills as I could not leave my wife with anybody the way she is.
    We men have our problems I never thought I would be cleaning up lots of different stuff and putting cream etc for garden bird and for farmer Giles.
    But hey we just get on with it.
    Not a good start to 2016.
    As the song says ( it only gets better )

    I suspect that the poster means that his wife has both a vaginal yeast infection and haemorrhoids along with the UTI.

    Del24 you're doing brilliantly, I hope with the treatment the bird starts singing sweetly and things will settle down for you. In the meantime keep posting if it helps. Of course you will know but try and get your wife to drink as much as possible, barley water is good for utis if she would like that. Take care. Sue:)

    I am always amazed how just one dose of antibiotics starts working immediately.
    It happens every time.
    We have it in the liquid form as it is easier to give.
    I can notice an improvement in behaviour after half an hour.
