I have had every test you can think of. Nothing abnormal. I drink 3 quarts of water daily, take probiotics, 500mg Vitamin C, d-mannose, cystex, you name it. It just happens. It all started after I went thru menopause.

I didn't have any issues other than the weight loss and belly pain. I was on antibiotics for roughly 29 days for a UTI that was misdiagnosed. I developed C-diff as a result of this and lost 20 pounds in less than 2 weeks. I was placed on vancomycin for approximately 60 days and that took care of the problem. I was also taking Bio-K plus probiotics for approximately 3 months and now take Florastor daily and have had no further issues. I hope this helps. I know how miserable C-diff is.
I have tried to research every possible condition that can lead to recurrent UTI in women. Is it possible that hemorrhoids could impede emptying the bladder completely and that in turn would lead to recurrent UTI's? Since women are prone to UTI's due to childbirth, maybe this could be one cause that can be researched. Just a thought.
I don't use any of the bone sparing medications because of the side effects. My chiropractor recommended Bone Restore with Vitamin K2. These are sold thru Life Extension. They contain 3 types of calcium, Vit D, magnesium, K2, etc. The K2 is important because it keeps the calcium in your bones and directs it away from your arteries. I read several scholarly articles from the National Institute of Health and they all recommended the K2 along with the calcium. Hope this helps.
I have had microscopic hematuria ever since I went thru menopause. I have had every test in the books trying to find a cause – there is none. I was told that since my estrogen levels are to the point of being non-existent, this causes the tissue to thin and allows traces of blood to leak thru the fragile tissue. It is quite common in menopause and post menopause. My urologist recommended topical estrogen cream which is quite safe because all it does is replenish the tissue locally which helps with recurrent UTI. Hope this helps.
