Urine infection

Hi

I am very new to this, I was diagnosed with early stages of endometriosis 1 year ago. At the moment I am suffering with what I thought a urine infection just constant dragging feeling it's awful I sit in the bath for over a hour just to ease it, but when tested my urine it's clear . So are this symptoms related to endometriosis ? Is this something I will start getting every month?

A bath won't help, especially if you have bubble bath etc in it will just irritate you more. Obviously there's the usual cranberry juice trick, but I find it better drinking a lot of water, like drink until you feel ready to explode - that helps me.

Also give down there a really good clean - I use Femfresh. I used to get urine infections all the time but haven't had one in years of using femfresh

Drink lots of water, don’t use any soaps down there, it will mess with ur ph. Baths are also not a good idea, pop to the chemists and get some sachets for cystitis - if it doesn’t clear up within the timeframe then see ur dr again xx

I find some of my milder symptoms are very similar to urine infection symptoms. In the early days when my symptoms started I went to doctor numerous times thinking I had a UTI (I've been prone to them since I was a teenager) but it kept coming back clear. Overtime my symptoms got worse and I was diagnosed with endometriosis just over a month ago. Could be best to see how it goes over the next couple of months and speak to your doctor about it.x

Thank you. I have been diagnosed about 8 months with early stages of endometriosis. He did say to me that I will start getting worst. He recommended me to have the coil but I really worried what to do , I have heard lots of bad stuff. I am 43 with 3 children. I was hoping I wasn't going to start getting symptoms so soon, my last period the second day was so heavy I just couldn't keep up with it 😢.
