I am seeing a urogynocologist next week, but I was hoping to get some suggestions from people who have the same issue. Since I am in perimenopause, I easily get UTIs. I use Dmannose to help prevent them but both of the last times I was infected and then cured by CIPRO my bladder was left in a frazzled state (frequency and pressure - but NO pain). The first time I was prescribed Vesicare but I ended up in hospital due to high heart rate and blood pressure. Just last week, I ended my second UTI with bladder irritation as well. This time I used Uristat and had the same result as I ended up in ER with same condition. Doctors think I can't handle any antichlorinic times of medicine.
So I am now looking for any advice to help with calming my bladder and frequency. I haven't been diagnosed with IC - as I have no pain and no issues outside of after I get a UTI.
I am currently trying Marshmellow Root capsules with some success, although it seems to be causing diurectic reaction which causes me to pee a lot and then my bladder does calm.
Has anyone been in the same situation as me? I am desperate to end this so I can leave the house and get back to handling my four kids without living on the toilet. Ironically, it seems to calm during the night time.
