In the short term, it's important to call your urogynecologist as soon as you experience symptoms. Don't rely on over-the-counter medications or home remedies such as cranberry juice. Only a prescription can quickly and entirely eradicate all of the bacteria that are causing a UTI.
UTI treatment will, of course, depend on each woman; and while many women's health conditions may require a pelvic exam to diagnose accurately, a urogynecologist can readily recognize UTI symptoms without the need for complicated tests.
Women who experience recurrent and chronic UTIs are looking for long-term relief. Vaginal atrophy often causes UTIs. Women suffering from vaginal atrophy can significantly benefit from diVa® laser vaginal therapy, a specially designed vaginal rejuvenation laser therapy. diVa®’s BBL (broadband light) technology delivers both ablative and non-ablative energy to stimulate new cell growth on the inner surface of the vaginal walls and to trigger collagen growth in the deeper tissue layers. This new tissue growth helps to help strengthen the vaginal structure, offering more support to the bladder and urethra.
Each diVa® session requires as little as three to five minutes to complete during an in-office procedure and does not require the use of anesthesia. Women can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment, however, they must abstain from intercourse for 5 days.
The team at Coyle Institute can help you determine the causes of your recurring UTIs. We understand that they are not only painful and inconvenient, but they can also put your whole life on hold. After a thorough examination and consultation, we'll be able to determine if diVa® laser vaginal therapy will help solve your UTI issues.
