I saw an OBGYN to get a second opinion before ending my pregnancy on July 9. She did a urine test and her nurse called me last Friday (1 week 3 days after I saw her) and told me I had bacteria in my urine and prescribed an antibiotic for UTI.
Has anybody got UTI after being on steroid (one month or more)? I was probably on steroid (dexamethasone) for 2 months. I am afraid to take steroid for a long period of time for next cycle now. It just seems not worth it for me to risk my kidney from getting damaged and not knowing if I really need it. I had immune testing done and my natural killer cells is Zero, I don’t have any. But I was just wondering if this is a common occurence to have UTI while on steroid for a long period of time in an IVF? I thought the dose prescribed in an IVF cycle is typically very low. I was on 1 mg dexamethasone daily. Now my previous RE would not prescribe this for me because he said the risk outweight the benefits unless if you really really have true immune issues.
