    Hello-

    Yes, the hormonal changes that occur during menopause can contribute to increased UTIs. The good news is there are things that can be done to help with this. To begin with making sure that the tissues around the urethra are healthy is important to overall vaginal health, which in turn may decrease the occurrence of UTIs. One recommendation to start is to moisturize these tissues using a pH balanced moisturizer, such as Gennev's Vaginal Dryness Intimate Moisture.

    Scheduling an appointment with one of our health coaches or telemedicine providers can also help to identify strategies specifically for you based on your lifestyle and health history.

    Felt the first twinge of a UTI last night. Haven't had one in 16 years! I was really surprised to do some searching and find it's a fairly common menopause symptom. Anything to do for prevention besides stay hydrated and drink some cranberry juice?

    Super helpful! Thanks, Stasi! I didn't necessarily feel "not-so-moist," but I think it can't hurt! :-) So much learning in these past few months!

    Thanks!
