Question Perimenopause and frequent UTIs / Insomnia

Intercourse, or pleasuring oneself, now ALWAYS brings on a UTI. I have read that the lower estrogen levels & thinning of vagina, affects the ph in the uretha. (I still get monthly periods, sometimes twice a month, somtimes too heavy)

***Do I need an estrogen vaginal cream to keep it at normal estrogen/ph levels? Also i have had severe insomnia for 15 months!!!---

***Am I estrogen dominant?-- would GYN have an accurate test for that?

I just saw GYN last week and won't be able to ask her for a couple weeks. Can anyone give me advice? Thanks in advance!!

Merry Christmas!

Re: Perimenopause and frequent UTIs / Insomnia

Do you urinate before and after sex? That could be helpful to do.
