    uti? vaginal discomfort
    GolfMarth posted:
    This is just my experience:
    In my mid 40's I started to have irritation and what I thought were UTI's--sometimes they were. Why at night I felt like I had to go to the bathroom all the time-- or experienced itching????
    Every 3 months or so, I would go to my urologist who would dilate my urethra. OUCH!! When he had finally begun to use anesthesia to do this procedure I quit!!!

    Over time, I learned to be extra careful with cleanliness and I started using vaginal estrogen.
