I've just come off of antibiotics a few weeks ago due to having blood in my urine caused by a medication I took which was an anti-inflammatory and i shouldn't have taken because of the medication i'm on & it caused me to be very dehydrated which of course affected my bladder even though I drink a lot of water. My urine has been dipped and my doctor has said the infection has gone. However I am left now with such pain and discomfort in my bladder and I know it's because the UTI caused a flare up of my vaginal atrophy and that I really need to take more of the ovestin cream but i've always been told and read on the pamphlets that you can only take it in a block amount ie every day ,if you have had a gap of taking it twice a week. However if I stop taking it twice a week at the moment I can only imagine what the pain & increased urination will be like but I'm scared to take it even though i know it's only a very small localised amount every day, without having a gap, it's like a vicious circle & its draining me & i'm up 2/3 times going to the toilet . When my bladder is full it hurts & stings & then its ok while i'm passing urine & then when my bladders empty it starts hurting again, is that something you ladies can relate to?
This is the first time I've been able to talk about this to other people who have the same condition and it makes me feel quite tearful just writing to you all? thank you for listening & sorry if i've gone on , hope this all makes sense , i'm just feel so low & its affecting my life .
