Recurrent UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
By Marja Sprock, M.D. F.A.C.O.G., FPMRS Board Certified

UTI or urinary tract infection is a significant healthcare issue accounting for 8.1 million visits to health care providers and cost of about $1.6 billion in the United States alone. Interesting numbers you may add, however what can be done about these infections which seem to be recurring or never really going away?
Once it becomes recurrent; treatment becomes more complicated than a couple of days of antibiotics for relieving the pain and burning with urination and urgency and frequency.

There is a lot more to UTI’s than you may think. There are bacteria which can be more or less aggressive and there is the host, you, who can be more or less susceptible to infections and a bladder which may not be emptying well.

People can be genetically more receptive to infections, may have diseases diminishing the immunity like diabetes or chemotherapy or change the fighting power by changing the acidity or low hormone levels of the vagina and perineum (area between vagina and rectum). In pregnancy and also once menopause hits, women are more susceptible to getting a UTI.

UTI, it seemed so simple, the most common bacterial infection, however a source of significant anguish when it recurs or is persistent.

Joyce (64) and her neighbor Margaret (60) both had recurrent bladder infections. Even though there could be an environmental factor, it was less complicated than that. Joyce was told elsewhere to pay more attention to hygiene. She had always just used the shower head with water to wash up, but now had invested in wipes and soap. Her infections became worse, since soap changes the acidity of the vagina and diminishes the resistance to bacteria and so did the wipes. Joyce had been drinking a lot of fluid for years. Even though fluids will diminish the density of the bacteria in the bladder, too much is too much. There is no scientific study showing a health benefit to excessive water drinking, instead it can lead to fatigue, dizziness, incomplete bladder emptying and incontinence. Exercising on a regular basis is a much better idea to improve your health. Joyce was drinking a bottle of water an hour. Even though it prevented her from drinking soda and overeating, it also prevented her bladder from completely emptying. Joyce reversed the process and cut down on her water intake. With some nerve and muscle stimulation her bladder started functioning properly again and her recurrent UTI, is a thing of the past. She has been very pleased without anymore UTI.

Margaret, her neighbor had always been amazed by the enormous amounts of water Joyce would drink and had never copied the habit. Margaret had been having UTI’s and urgency for what seemed to be no apparent reason. She had no diseases diminishing her immunity and had no infections when she was younger. She was sexually active and sometimes would get an infection after intercourse, but not always. She had used a daily antibiotic for a while, but that did not seem to work any longer. Margaret had chronic cystitis and several washings of the bladder made her continued urgency feeling disappear and restored the wall of the bladder increasing her resistance in addition.

After counseling about options to increase the fighting power against the bacteria, Margaret chose to use local estrogen. Margaret has an Estring® and has been infection free now for 6 months.

UTI, it seemed so simple, the most common bacterial infection, however a source of significant anguish when it recurs or is persistent.
