Hi White Rose,
Just wondering if you ever found a solution to your recurrent UTIs? I felt like I was reading my own words when reading some of your posts - particularly about the bad hygiene. Every time I see a specialist, I’m so hopeful that I’ll finally get an answer and I go back to my GP so disheartened. I think she thinks I’m depressed!!

Let me know how you got on.

Hi Kirsty,

How lovely to hear from you. You have my sincere sympathy - recurrent UTI’s are an absolute pain. I’m currently on bladder installations and a tablet called hipprex. The installations seem to work as long as I have them weekly, but once they reduce, the infections still come back. I would say that things do feel a bit better though. I have only had one lot of antibiotics in three months, which for me, is brilliant. What I would say is that you and I many others on here, that the recurrent infections are not necessarily due to ‘poor hygiene’. I hated being patronised to, as if I was somehow less diligent in personal hygiene, than others.

I don’t know how long I have to have installations - and it’s still a case of each specialist trying something different, but I do feel better in myself these days....

Warmest wishes
