I was diagnosed with vagina atrophy, because of that getting cystitis often and urologist prescribed me nitrofurantoin for a long time. Please let me know if there is some antibiotics which may be injected once a month (or once in several month) and will work all that time. Thanks
Vaginal atrophy can be treated with estrogen. If you are getting infection it could be as the result of not being able to empty your bladder, another complication of urethral and vaginal atrophy. This condition also can be treated and hopefully you would not need antibiotics.
