I am constantly getting urine infections, at the moment I started

Customer Question

I am constantly getting urine infections, at the moment I started my 9th infection on Sunday night. I am bedridden, and wear a pad, but at the start of the infection I have no control of my bladder at all, I get a burning pain and my urine just runs away from me.
I drink 2 litres of water a day, and 2 cups of green tea.

Hi

Can you tell me about your gender?

Are you diabetic ?

Have you tested your urine ?

Have you done a kidney scan?

How is the urine when you don't have the infection?

Do you have uterine prolapse?

Do you have history of breast/ Ovary cancer?

Please let me know

Is there anything I can do to avoid any further infections?

HI Betty,

There are some measures which you can follow to avoid or reduce the infection rates.

First of all drink plenty of water and always keep yourself hydrated.Drinking Cranberry juice helps.Keep the genital region clean.While cleaning , clean from front to back and not otherwise.

Using estrogen creams seems to be protective by increasing the blood supply in the region and hence better immunity against bacteria.

Using long term antibiotics in reduced dosage have been to proven to be effective against infections while having no side effects.

These measures can be followed to avoid infections to some extent but they are not 100 % foolproof.

I hope this answers your question.

Regards

Dr.Tharun
