They should be able to tell whether you have a UTI from a urine culture -- please don't tell me they're not actually taking a urine sample. I don't know whether steroids can cause it, but my understanding is that menopause is a major cause of interstitial cystitis. I've never been diagnosed, but have persistent bladder discomfort (among other things) when not on HRT. Take care, Maggie (in VA)
ETA: Sorry, I realized you said the MD looked at your urine. Old age setting in. Or twins. Or both.
