I am a post menopausal woman and have been using the Estring for estrogen replacement for about a year. During that year, I've had what I thought were bladder infections followed by yeast infections at least five times. I usually get something everytime I have sex. I've been treated with Bactrim, which didn't seem to do anything, then with Ciprofolaxin, which seemed to take care of the problem in two cases. In four of these cases, the urine cultures did not reveal any bacteria. My pharmacist said I could have a yeast infection in the urethra, which, he said, could be cured with cranberry juice. I've yet to test this theory. If anyone has any experience with the Estring and various infections, I'd like to hear about them.
