Had a UTI almost two weeks ago, as discussed in a previous question I am a regular sufferer of UTI's with no apparent cause. Have prophalactic antibiotics on perscription, i.e one to take after intercourse (tres romantic) This has worked for the last 8 months until almost two weeks ago (a week after starting armour) when I began with a UTI,which gave me back ache too. Was given a week of nitrofurantoin (my regular antibiotic) and this worked. Finished last dose on saturday,,,,,,,,and then started with symptoms again yesterday (Tuesday) so this is either yet another infection, or a particularly bad one.
Ive never had the back pain before or a UTI which hasnt gone with a week of antibiotics, so this is worry.
Does anyone know if Nitrofurantoin and armour cause problems for one another. Cant see any contra indications on the info sheets of either drug.
Also I stumbled across a medical question site when typing armour and urine infections into google and a few people were discussing how they began to get UTI'S after taking armour.
I asked similar question to this a few weeks ago, and no one seemed to think there was a link, and to be fair this was only a few people discussing , so probably a coincidence, and I am prone to UTI's (which will hopefully clear up when I get thyroid issue sorted)
But is it even remotely possible for a hormone to either cause or render you susceptible to a UTI. ?
Any scientifics or such like or similar sufferers with similar experiences?
