What Is Causing My Recurrent Bladder Infections?

If your bladder infection never seems to completely go away, you may be suffering from recurrent bladder infections, and it’s important to find out the cause. If the urologist you’re going to can’t tell you what is causing your chronic recurrent bladder infections, you need to find a specialist in vulvovaginal health that can help you. It manifests as a sensation of frequency and or urgency to urinate, often with burning with urination, bladder pressure and changes in the color of the urine.

What Is Causing Your Chronic Recurrent Bladder Infections?
The bacteria that cause bladder infections in women often originate in the vagina. The vagina is home to an array of different bacteria, and while there is some bad bacteria, most of it is good and contributes to vaginal health. However, if there is an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the vagina, then naturally the vaginal secretions that normally bathe the nearby urethral opening can end up affecting the bladder. The more bad bacteria there is, the more severe the symptoms are likely to be. The condition can be treated by identifying the changes in the normal vaginal constituents, and making the necessary adjustments.
