Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
With the age there’s some “small” different challenges for us women, like for example a slightly irritated bladder 💧. It’s not just the hormones that changes their behaviour, but also some other “small” things and stuffs in the “here and there “🤸♀️.
I need to admit that I didn’t knew that repeated cystitis and urinary tract infection were actually a part of this “famous” menopause, but apparently it is also something that comes with this “age” 🙄. And why do I know that? Because I have actually been reading about this, not just in information about the menopause, but also in different articles, as well as the wife to the earlier president in USA, Mrs. Obama, has told about this challenge when she went through the menopause.
And yes it is a challenge 🙄. If you never have had cystitis or urinary tract infection you maybe don’t quite understand the challenge, but it’s like you need to go to the toilet “all the time” for peeing, but there just a couple of drops that “shows up/out” , and it’s a painful process to pee. And the pee smells too, a bit not to good 😳. Even those 3 drops you manage to do smells💧.
It’s not all women that goes through menopause that have this challenge. Like it is with the most changes we go through in life also menopause are different from woman to woman.
I had my “first” cystitis or urinary tract infection, in this “period and phase” in my life for maybe three or four months ago. At that time I didn’t connect it to menopause at all. I thought it was to much “fun under the duvet” that was the reason. Because that can happen too, to get cystitis or urinary tract infection if there’s to much “activity” under “the duvet” 😅. So I got an antibiotic cure, and it helped a lot.
But then this cystitis or urinary tract infection “shows up” again, and again, also when there hasn’t been any kind of “duvet activity”, only sleeping 😳. I m not use to that, to this “urine- challenges” so I started reading a bit about it,- and I assume this repeated cystitis or urinary tract infection I have is connected together with menopause.
I don’t like to much to go to the doctor, and now at days even less then before. It’s actually very difficult to go to the doctor, get an appointment for just “normal” things now at days. Now at this corona- days 😳. Not to private doctors, but that costs money, a bit of money too. And I have my own public doctor I normally use if I have some questions about my health and body. And an other thing,- to get a sick leave you need to visit your public doctor- always. At least it’s like this here in Spain. But now at days you stand in line 🚶♂️🚶♀️🚶♂️🚶♀️🚶♂️🚶♀️🚶♂️for a very long time to even just get a appointment, and then you get an phone appointment too, before you actually can visit your doctor live. It’s of course not like this if it’s an emergency situation.
An other thing,- I don’t like to use to much antibiotic cure either. To much of that will not do any good, special because I can actually be resistant to antibiotics, and I really don’t want to be that. But what to do, what to do when you have repeated cystitis or urinary tract infection? 🤔 I can’t stand in line for hours to get an new antibiotic cure all the time, and I don’t want to use antibiotics all the time either.
So I did try, and I still do, drink a litre or two closely daily now at days with ginger tea 🍵. Ginger helps to “clean up ” inside the body,- so why not givr it a try, was my thoughts 😊. And in it’s own way it actually does help 🥰. I’m not sure this can help “all and everyone” with this annoying repeated cystitis or urinary tract infection,- but it helps me 😊.
Ginger tea is easy to make. I use ginger root, not whole, but cut up approx 0.1 dl with root, boil this in about a liter of water, or two. Two liters of water, 0.2 liters of ginger root. I let the water with the root soak for 5-10 minutes before I take it off the hob, strain the water, cool at room temperature, and drink a glass and two of ginger tea. But I drink it all during a day, one or 2 liter. Sometimes I stir a teaspoon of honey in the glass as well, then the tea tastes sweeter, and I also gets some antioxidants from the honey as well 🌻🐝.
I don’t know if I should give this ginger tea as an good advice and as help to keep the irritated, menopause bladder calm,- but it does helps me and my irritated bladder at the moment, and during this new “period and phase” I have just started on in my life 😊. And so fare I have manage to keep this annoying cystitis and urinary tract “away”. Well, not totally, but as long as I make the ginger tea and drink the ginger tea. The “urin- challenges” can “pop up” if I take to many days “break” from drinking the ginger tea. And I think I probably need to visit a doctor now and then if this continues “forever”. But at least the ginger tea minimises my “urine challenges” very much 😊.
By the way, – there is a slight difference between cystitis and urinary tract infection, -, one is in the lower part of the “urinary system”, and the other in the upper part. I do mix these two, – but it hurts to pee anyway. But the ginger tea does help my bladder to get rid of the pain, and smell and this feeling of need to go to the toilet “all the time” for just 2- 3 drops of urine 💧.
I’m actually not sure if it is the cystitis I have or had, or if it is the urinary tract infection. I’m not prof in this or the menopause 😊. But do I try to remember to drink my ginger tea every day 🍵.
If this was a good advice or bad advice, I don’t know, but I don’t think it will do any harm if you try ginger tea if you have some challenges with the “urine- system” 😊. It’s good for the body anyway, but probably not to much- like it is with “all and everything”. It’s a general a balance between to much and to little 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊
It’s some tiny different challenges we meet when we as adults turn into a new phase and period in our life 🥀. And a slightly irritated bladder can be one of them 🙄. For me ginger tea has helped a bit to calm down some tiny “challenges” with this “situation” 🍵😊.
