Sorry if too much info.
I have been suffering with UTI's on and off for the past 3 years and ever since I had a hysterectomy, I have also suffered constipation on and off since then as well, I have been taking senna (1 tablet) each evening and it does help but and here is the catch 22, the fact that I take laxatives obviously creates more faecal matter to wipe (I do wipe front to back) so possibly making it more likely for stray bits to go elsewhere, but if I remained a bit constipated that in turn can contribute to the bladder not emptying properly thereby creating a stale build up of urine that also contributes to uti's recurring. I am also vegetarian so eat plenty of veg, any suggestions would be appreciated, I seem to be going round in circles.
Constipationand uti's or laxatives and uti's?
PS. I also know that uti's can be common after menopause and also after hysterectomy because of lack of eostrogen, I'm 65 now and sooooooo glad to be a woman
I hope you can make sense of this
