Re: why can't i get rid of my bladder infections

How is your diet/fluid intake? How about hygen? Is the water in your part of the country clean? Is bottled water available in your area? Sometimes the things that you bath with will cause infections. Only a doctor can tell you for sure why you might be having various bladder infections. The cheapest way to help yourself, is to first evaluate your daily routine, from diet to hygen. Using different cheap/perfumed lotions or powders etc. could cause you problems. How about cleaning, wiping in the wrong direction? This also have cause women infections. So, when you ask why I am having so many infections, it's not such an easy question to answer. Hopefully your problem is something as simple as one I've mentioned.

Re: why can't i get rid of my bladder infections

Thank you for your reply, everything you mention what do do, i do all the right things, i drink lots of water 6-8 glasses, i have a brita, so i drink good water. i don't use powders or perfumes, i know about wiping from the front to the back, so you see i do all of those. I seen a naturopath, and what she has given me seems to be helping, i have my name in to see a specialist, just waiting for a call. I think maybe my bladder is not emptying properly.maybe a drop bladder.

Re: why can't i get rid of my bladder infections

I keep getting bladder infections too. I'm on my fifth course of antibiotics and have been suffering since August with only one month of relief. I do everything I'm supposed to do also and I've seen a urologist, who said that my bladder was emptying. I'm pre-diabetic and have a b-12 deficiency, so my doctor thinks it could be because my immune system is already low and it's harder for me to fight off this infection. I'm so frustrated all the time. And i know that the stress isn't helping the discomfort in my abdomen.
