Chronic UTI

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!

Happy the estrogen has helped you as well! As for remembering to use it, just mark it on your calendar (E). If I happen to forget, then I take it a day later. It is all good! You sound like you are barely through menopause! 🙂
Take care.
