does anyone get UTI-like symptoms with their period? i’ve switched birth control and just changed a lot in a short period of time haha so i’ve had two cycles. is this usually something people experience?

      I get chronic infections between periods it's been happening for about a year now. It can be normal to some people. Like part of your cycle..

          @bouncyroo11 i also get a lot of bladder infections, knock on wood only one kidney infection so far! the symptoms have happened twice so far, but each urinalysis and culture comes back clean. i’d say the weirdest part about all of this is that even though my UTIs were probably from urinary retention (and hoping they are gone once i get screening to see if my neuromodulator truly works), i was never symptomatic, despite always having more than 100,000 colonies. that might be from a neurogenic bladder, but it’s kinda weird how i get traditional UTI symptoms during my period and can feel it. my body confuses me very often lol

      Seems like that happens to me! Then again I do have problems with my entire urinary system anyway lol

        @Ren0Rex same with me 😭 i have retention and a neurogenic bladder but my neuromodulator helps a LOT now. sadly can’t grow a ureter lol i know sometimes the uti symptoms without an infection (i checked) can indicate bladder endometriosis but honestly i kinda wanted to know if it was normal lol
