Its 11 years old but still news worthy.
As one of us who has urinary problems with AV, now I see why I feel so much better the day after I take my "pea shaped" estriol cream dosage.
(I don't think you need to have a UTI for the estriol cream to help bladder health.)
Here is an excerpt from the article - link to same is below.
"Estriol Protects Urinary Health in Postmenopausal Women
Postmenopausal women who suffer from incontinence or recurrent urinary tract infections will be pleased to know that estriol offers benefit in the context of these troublesome conditions. In a prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled study, 88 women were given 2 mg intravaginal estriol suppositories (once daily for two weeks, then twice weekly for six months) or placebo. Of the women in the estriol group, 68% reported improvement in symptoms of incontinence. In addition, measurements of mean maximal urethral pressure and mean urethral closure pressure were significantly improved.10
In another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, women with recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) were given either intravaginal estriol cream (containing 0.5 mg estriol, once daily for two weeks, then twice weekly for eight months) or placebo. The incidence of urinary tract infection was dramatically reduced in the estriol group compared with placebo (0.5 versus 5.9 episodes per year).11"
