Thanks for your question. If I don't respond to you immediately, it is because I am either in the OR or traveling. I WILL get back to you ASAP.You may be having a problem with atrophic vaginitis where the lining of the vagina is thinned out due to low estrogen levels from menopause. This allows bacteria from the vagina to migrate into the bladder from the vagina. To treat this, your doctor may need to prescribe topical estrogen cream for the vagina to thicken up the tissue to prevent these recurrent infections. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have questions.
