@annapocono My doctor also put me on estrogen cream. And she said the same thing to only use a pea size amount. But she also asked if I was using a PH balanced soap. At the time, I was not. I've since changed to one and use it every night. I'm 70 and I've taken cranberry tablets for years. But not the brand you are using. I also drink the juice. I'm also faithful taking a probiotic every single day. I've now been on Florastor or another with S. Boulardii since my GI told me to start it last fall along with the regular probiotic. I got the UTI while I was just finishing the Vanco pulse and taper. I took Macrobid. I was told to stay away from Cipro for UTI's. What estrogen cream did she put you on? I'm using Premarin but I guess there is one that's a lot less money. My co-pay for Premarin was over $80. It lasts along time since I'm only using a pea size.
