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 pricking 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?
