Painful urinary tract due to hormonal imbalance
I have had recurrant UTIs for the past 6 months. My doc and gynae agree that I have hormonal imbalance and I am on progesterone tabs, which have helped with perimenopausal symptoms, but not with the painful urinary tract. I am taking cranberry tabs, which seem to stop me getting infections, but don't stop the burning and *****ing in my urinary tract.
It's driving me crazy and seems to get worse when I get PMS (due to rise in estrogen?). Does anyone have any idea why I should still be getting pain even with no infection? And is there ANYTHING I can do about it?
