Annoying bladder problems

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi Ladies

I haven't been on for a while but am really despearate to hear from anyone who has has ongoing urinary infections, hard to clear up and even when supposedly gone, still have a feeling of needing to pee.  I am going out of my mind with this one.  I have missed two periods now and this symptom is by far my worst at the moment.  Has anyone else had this, along with aching lower back and hips?

Thanks

Jo

    Hopefully the anti biotics will help with any lingering infection - but know with hormonal changes we can be more prone to urinary infections.  Sooo here's a way to keep them away that works for many!  Sugar makes it worse - it grows bacteria like crazy so avoid obvious sugar as much as possible (candies, pastries, soda etc - alcohol is also sugar producing in the body so again keep that in mind. 

    After the antibiotics I'd get on a good Probiotic supplement daily - and a lifesaver can be cranberry supplements (pills) I take 2 per day and if I've over indulged in foods that irritate, (usually sugar)  I take one or 2 more that day and knock wood have been great for 2 yrs.  Changes are happening and the body isn't always able to keep up, especially if we haven't made any changes either...(diet etc)  So...try and avoid sugar for now...and supplement if you are willing and hopefully you'll be on the other side of this soon!

    Hi All

    It turns out I have interstitial cystitis, hence the pelvic pain and in my groin and hips as well and lower back.  All tests came back clear for infection or anything else.

    Doc said this condition is quite common with a sudden drop in estrogen so have been started on topical estrogen last night.  It has helped already!  What a relief!

    Thanks to all those for support, but I really don't think any of us need the fear of God put into us talking about Cancer, as we are all aware of Cancer and would be of course mindful and worried about it ourselves,

    Anyway, some relief at last!
