Answer

Because of the personal nature and time-intensive diagnosis of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), many physicians err by presuming that symptoms of an STI are caused by a urinary tract infection (UTI); therefore, patients often present with a history of multiple UTIs when, in fact, they may have had 1 or more STDs.
