    Oh yes. I've had this for a couple years now off and on. Trace blood in my urine. They have never been too concerned about it though and it has never been more than "trace". My physician said it is fairly common. Interesting that this happened at the start of peri for me too!

    Same. One doctor freaked me out about it, but it was nothing after my test, and is REALLY common according to my OBGYN. A lot of harmless things can cause trace blood in your urine, like dehydration or certain supplements and medications.

    Hi Beverly

    Yes, had this on and off for a few years but when they test for cultures it is always negative. I believe its linked to menopause because the urethra shrinks and it can lead to inflammation. I just drink plenty, and occasionally take demanose which is a supplement. If all else fails I use over the counter cystitis treatment which helps to calm it. Have to say though, it's been so much better since I started taking hrt xx

      Hi sakura

      I've tried bhrt and hrt and haven't gained weight with either. Since last year though I've stuck to a healthy low fat diet, and I'm probably more active than I've ever been so it seems to stay off for me xx

      Hi 2chr

      Yes it went away. Without hrt I had all the symptoms of uti, aching, going to the loo more, urgency and a bit of peeing my pants... On hrt I don't get any of that or very rarely. Xx

      thanks sassy. i wondered if hrt would help with the urgency and stress incontinence. Mine isn't terrible, but i thought it was worse a couple of days before my period started. So yea, makes sense that it is hormone related too...I mean obviously after three kids things aren't as strong down there, but i didn't have any issues until i started all of this. Thanks for replying!

      Sorry for the delay Beverly. Demanose is a potent cranberry vitamin which my homeopath recommended. It was super expensive and probably to take enough of it to make a difference would cost a bit. It's so common in meno though and can be a real drag xx

      Hiya Beverly

      Tbh I can't say it made a huge difference for me, but I don't think I took enough for long enough. I trust my homeopathic with anything though, she's a great friend too and she is far more clued up than me😊 The biggest game changer was the hrt really and the cystitis relief to alleviate some of the ache and inflammation. I think the Dmannose stops the inflammation caused by e-coli, but if your problem is down to hormones it may be that you need hrt.... Have you tried? Xx
