I've had UTIs for many years, but, as of last June, I hadn't had one for two years. In the six months since then, I have had two. I was also dignosed with vaginal atrophy during this time - dryness, pain and incredible itching - and am using a vaginal moisturer, although it's not particularly effective. I'm post-menopausal.
I will be seeing my GP next week and wonder whether I might be better to ask about a hormone cream. Do some creams work better than others? I would be interested in other's experiences. I've been a little wary of using them in the past, because of the hormone risk, but am now thinking that if they reduce UTIs, it may well be worth it. Have others found that there is a link between vaginal atrophy and the frequency of UTIs?
