I had a similar situation and have been prescribed 0.5g Premarin estrogen cream to be used vaginally twice weekly. This has helped greatly.
It is worth talking to your physician about it. I resisted this suggestion at first but now am happy I tried it!
Good luck!

I have had chronic UTIs for several years - some of which landed me in the hospital. Sometimes those hospital visits would cause me to catch additional infections because I have a chronic disease called Panhypopituitarism. This disease means I haven’t got a working pituitary gland and that means I have a very lousy immune system. A few months ago one of my doctors told me to start using estrogen cream three days a week and it might help my UTI situation. Well, indeed it did! The important thing for me is remembering to use the estrogen when I’m supposed to but I’m having s memory issues and occasionally I forget to use the estrogen. The secret is - don’t get as old as I am!

I was prescribed this as well, but it was not helpful for me. It can be for many though
