I am taking D-Mannose, which is the active ingredient in cranberries, a couple times a day, along with an herbal tea from my naturopath, and some herbal caplets (Uristatin from Thorne Research). These all help the discomfort from becoming unbearable, but haven't cleared up the infection. I really didn't want to resort to Antibiotics , but think I'm going to have to take a longer course of some stronger Antibiotics for this thing to get better. 3 days on Bactrim did not work. I'm waiting for the culture to get back on Monday for a prescription.
I suspect this is all from the Progesterone Cream. It helped me adjust to the Mirena crashes, but I think did more harm than good in the long term. I have no idea how long it will take to get out of my system, but some of the other effects from it have worn off after 2 months.
Thanks for your input! Like always it helps to know that I'm not the only one having a particular symptom. Have a great weekend!
