I had problems with frequent urination and just finished a course of Cipro a few days ago. I still feel like I have the UTI. No pain but frequent urination, especially at night. Some days it seems fine and other days I feel like it's back. Very frustrated. I'm 57yo and going through menopause. I'd appreciate your feedback.

I never had an UTI until going through menopause then I had them frequently until I started using topical low dose estrogen supplements. After starting these (Estrace Cream and Femring), I have had none. There appears to be a connection between low estrogen related vaginal dryness/atrophy and UTIs. Maybe Dr. Jane can tell us why.

Good luck,
