Constant UTI’s 9 in 3 months!

Hey everyone , I’m genuinely at my wits end!!! I’m soo fed up! Since August I have been in Constant pain! I had the coil to help my endometriosis ! Since then it’s jus got a lot worse! Bk in September I was admitted and got the coil taken out , still in constant pain I’ve had numerous ultrasound’s showing hemoragic cyts in my right ovary I was told to go home and wait for an app to come through for another scan was to wait and se wig cyts and gone away, I had my scan last Thursday to find out they were still there but I also have a larger cyst on my left ovary aswell as the ones on the right , I now have to wait till dec for my next app to go through results and find out if I’ve to get surgery , while all this is going on the pain is horrific I’ve been off sick from work since August, constant pain on 6 Tablets a day 4x a day, so pretty much away with it most of the time, the pain in my back is just as bad as my abdominal pain , all down to cyts and Endo .. but since August o have had 9 UTI’s everytime I go to doctors they say wait till your app to discuss this with the gynaecology as there best to discuss it will off I go with more antibiotics , the doctors are saying that the cyts and Endo shouldn’t have anything to do owth my bladder! I have had a rubbish couple of days woke up and not been able to move another day in bed I have a temp urinated 10 x today and it’s only 15.00 burning everytime I pass urine and my back is unbearable , so currently jus waiting for the duty doctor to call me, I’m soo fed up going through all this it is making me so down anyone any suggestions wat I do ?? Thanks xxx

have you had thyroid function tests done because hormone treatments can trigger hypothyroid and this can create so called UTIs which are not

endo like hashimotos are auto immune and linked

You may be suffering with Interstitial cystitis? Look this up online. I had months of pain before i realised it was Interstitial cystitis. The doctor may be able to give you an oestrogen cream for this? It solved my problem. However i don't know how it will affect your other symptoms.

see your doctor. Ovestin cream. It's an hormonal cream applied directly to the area. Stops all burning pain etc. But, it may affect your other endo symptoms?? It's worth discussing with doctor.
