I have used un scented products for a long time, on the advice of my Mayo allergist. I learned about showers only, on this site. I can’t believe how simple this is, and that no one in the medical fields told me about it. Also, I feel silly for not knowing it myself. Since changing to showers I have been uti free. I went through all the urology tests and aside from a little muscle weakness, I am fine. In fact there was a caveat on that finding because there are no age norms for the test. The urologist recommended double voiding. To add to my feeling of being a little lacking in common sense, the doctor was not sure that I actually had that many uti’s since I was diagnosed during travel at urgent care centers, on the basis of symptoms and urine tests, with no physical exam. I may have had just a yeast infection, but a new type I had never had before. Wishing all of you best of luck with your issues, and hoping the upcoming holidays are bright and happy.
