    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

    Sorry, not read the other replies as trying to catch up on threads but I suffer from this too sometimes although more as a kid. Don't have very hot baths although I still do, no bubble bath or soap down there, use a feminine wash, drink plenty of water and Cranberry Juice is a big help too.

    Yes, yogurt is good for a lot of female problems but be sure not to eat dairy products while taking your antibiotics. Perhaps, if you have been, that's why it won't clear up.

    And Crazy is absolutely right, no bubble baths, ever again!

    Everyone is right in suggesting you should see a specialist before you get scar tissue on your bladder or kidneys.
    When choosing between two evils, I always like to take the one I've never tried before.

    I've never heard that dairy us bad while you're on antibiotics, learn something new every day eh! Live yogurt, tried that once down there, what a mess!

    Re: Cystitis

    Beautyful,
    I spoke with my daughter who is a nurse practitioner and here are a few things she tells her patients. Not sure if its anything you already know or not:

    Unfortunately-as a woman our anatomy is the culprit-our urethra(pee opening) is too close to other things...therefore bacteria easily can get up into our urinary tract or our bladder. Therefore if you are getting them that often- your anatomy may be to blame. i think you are doing most of the things such as, no tight clothing, no perfume or scents, IE; bath soap, use hypo allergic products, as well use Cotton underwear and try not to stay in a wet bathing suit too long( also helps protect against yeast infections...another great part of being a woman..) anyhow, drink lots of H2O- cranberry juice has been known to work for some people. Always wipe-front to back and you should always pee pre and post coital (IE; before and after sex) That is the main reason for UTI in woman..ever hear of Honeymoon cystitis???? when woman would all develop UTI on their honeymoon....
    Also, if you keep getting them then your doctor should be looking at why?They are common in woman but shouldn't be occurring that frequently- and it should be investigated...sometimes there is a reason behind it...but sometimes not. Once its cleared up do they re-test your urine to make sure that it is fully cleared up??? Sometimes its not fully cleared up and then can reappear very easily.
    Another thing we often do is put someone on prophylaxis antibiotics such as Bactrim (Septra) to prevent an infection...usually its given over the weekend, like Friday sat and Sunday and then stopped for a few days...again because of the whole honeymoon cystitis thing we usually go for the weekend.
    Well- I think that is all I can think of- I hope this helps
