Perhaps you’re no stranger to urinary tract infections (UTIs), or maybe you’re the opposite, and you’ve been spared by the urinary health gods. Whichever the case, UTIs after menopause can happen to anyone. They are the second most common type of bacterial infections seen by healthcare providers. Today we’re looking into UTI symptoms, treatment, and prevention post menopause. You’re no longer dealing with your period, so UTIs should take a hike as well!
Why are women at a higher risk of UTIs post menopause?
When you are perimenopausal, menopausal, or postmenopausal, the lack of the hormone estrogen plays a key role.
What are UTI symptoms for women after menopause?
UTIs may present themselves differently in postmenopausal women. You may not experience thecommon UTI symptoms(strong and frequent urge to urinate, burning sensation when urinating, etc.). Instead older women withUTIs can be asymptomatic:
The only way to cure a urinary tract infection is with antibiotics.Studies show that a 3-day course of antibiotics is equally effective over a 7-day course among postmenopausal patients.
Hope Ricciotti, MD and editor in chief of theHarvard Women’s Health Watch, writes, “there are effective prevention strategies for healthy women at midlife who are struggling with recurrent UTIs.”
Take control of your urinary health, don’t accept UTIs as a fact of getting older. If you are struggling with UTIs, speak with your doctor to find a solution specifically suited for you. Let’s face it, you have better things to do with your time than worry about UTIs-- Uqora is an effective and safe way to prevent UTIs for women after menopause.
"I suffered from CHRONIC UTIs and have had some pretty
serious repercussions from taking mass amounts of antibiotics.
I have not had a UTI since I started taking uqora. I drink it after things that are my triggers (sex in particular) and it stops it in it’s tracks!"
