Recurrent bladder infections – are antibiotics always necessary?

Every third woman has already been affected by a bladder infection, a so-called cystitis. Especially after the menopause, many women suffer from recurring bladder infections. The reason for this are the changes in the female body caused by the drop in estrogen. The affected women perceive the infection with the typical symptoms of a constant urge to urinate, burning when urinating and abdominal pain as a significant impairment of their quality of life.

In the case of a severe or advanced infection, antibiotic treatment is often unavoidable. However, anyone who gets caught in the vicious circle of recurring cystitis knows that the next cystitis will not be long in coming.

Are antibiotics always useful for recurring bladder infections?

Antibiotics can quickly relieve the symptoms of bladder infections and eliminate the inflammation by killing the bacteria. However, it is not uncommon for the bacteria to nest in the bladder wall during antibiotic treatment, to hide so to speak, so that the active ingredient can no longer reach it. Days later, they can come out “from their hiding place” and trigger another bladder infection. Especially after the menopause, the mucous membranes are thinner and more susceptible to bacteria that enter the bladder from the intestine via the vaginal mucosa. 54-year-old Simone was also affected by recurrent bladder infections for years. Her ordeal began in her early 40s. Constant intake of antibiotics could not break the vicious circle, the urinary tract infections kept coming back – up to three times a year. Due to the constantly recurring and suddenly occurring painful bladder infections, she felt that her quality of life was significantly restricted.

Prevention options and support for bladder infections

Which form of treatment is most suitable for a bladder infection depends on the intensity of the infection. At the same time, of course, it also depends on whether the symptoms are acute or chronic in nature. In the case of uncomplicated or frequently recurring bladder infections, as was the case with Simone, D-Mannose can be used to support, but also preventively. Bladder infections and urinary tract infections are caused by E. coli bacteria in 90% of all cases. Taking D-Mannose is an effective way to fight these bacteria. The drinking granules Femannose® N contain D-Mannose and are effective in the supportive treatment and prevention of bladder infections. The natural active ingredient D-Mannose encapsulates the infection-causing E. coli bacteria and thus neutralizes them. As a result, the pathogens cannot “dock” to the bladder mucosa and cause a bladder infection. They are simply flushed out with the next urine. The active ingredient D-Mannose in Femannose® N does not lead to resistance due to its unique mechanism of action. A preventive intake over 30 days is particularly recommended for recurring bladder infections, so that the bacteria that may later be released from the germ reservoirs of the bladder mucosa are completely flushed out and cannot cause any further infection

About Femannose® N:

The active ingredient D-Mannose, which is used in the Femannose® N preparation, was known as a helping agent in urinary tract infections long before the product was introduced. With Femannose® N in the form of drinking granules, an easy-to-use dosage form came onto the market. With Femannose® N, those affected by bladder infections have the option of taking a sachet with 2 g D-mannose every day in order to implement preventive measures. For supportive treatment of cystitis, Femannose® N is taken as follows:

– 3×1 sachet day 1-3

– 2×1 sachet day 4-5
