    Cystitis

    I suffer quite often from this nasty urinary tract infection and I was wondering if anybody had any tips for easing/curing it?

    if any of you ladies have ever had it, you will know how uncomfortable this is and miserable it can make you

    thank you in advance

    Have you worked out why you keep getting it?

    Drink water..lots of it.

    And go to the docs to get a script for antibiotics.

    But you really need to identify why you keep getting it.

    I have done everything i can think of to stop getting it, totally cut out coffee, alcohol,various things to do with sex which i won't go into


    I am fed up of keep going to the doctor just to be given antibiotics, that is their get out clause which they always resort to, never help me find a cause or give me any other help

    You're not holding onto your wee for too long are you?

    It's really important to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, the bladder will not send the signal to the brain that it needs to be emptied until it gets to a certain amount of fluid in it.

    If you don't drink enough that small amount of wee will sit in the bladder for ages and you can get infections from that.

    Re: Cystitis

    thanks for your help saffy but i've been suffering on and off with this for four years so i have tried lots of things, i must admit i don't drink as much water as i probably should but even when i do it doesn't seem to help...

    the most uncomfortable thing often is that when i have a bout of it, i constantly need to pee...like all the time makes going out so awkward
