Hyophen, expensive but help bladder pain
Natural calm plus calcium
Prelief to reduce acid in foods
This is probably the number one thing you can do. Get rid of dairy, sugar, starchy foods, yeast, caffeine, carbonated drinks, brewed tea. High red meat diets can also promote bladder irritation. Eat plant based foods as much as possible.
Avoid acidic foods and drink
Avoid citrus fruits, orange juice particularly
You can order urine ph strips. Ideal urine is ph is 6.5-7.25. Slightly acidic urine can prevent uti, but extremes on either acid and alkaline can promote bacteria
Wipe front to back
Limit tub baths
Wear loose fitting clothes
Short heating pad use throughout the day
Cathed and cultured urine samples
Urinate regularly every three to four hours
Pelvic floor exercises
Constant bladder infections create tighter pelvic floor muscles which equal increased pain
Chronic UTI can cause constipation because of bracing. Increase fiber, magnesium, and exercise to be regular
Pain can also make you fold over, which shortens the pelvic floor muscles, which increases pain, then bladder gets neurogenic and you don't get the message you need to go, urine held in bladder promotes bacteria growth.
If you wear pads for urine leakage, don't use regular pads, they are not intended for long term use in that they don't wick away the urine, which can cause irritation. instead, use the pad specifically made for bladder issues. Do not use toilet paper folded up as well...irritates urethra.
Kegel exercises..these can cause pelvic pain. Reverse kegels are ok.
Emotional ways to manage pain..this can help relax pelvic muscles and make bladder less painful. Learning to focus on the breath throughout the day. Reverse kegel exercises, not regular kegels.
Just learning to be aware of body sensations can help. Mesh women naturally try to block out body signals because they are unpleasant
