Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the chronic bladder infection that you are having, Well, there can be many causes of chronic bladder infections including kidney or bladder stones, bacteria entering the urethra during sexual intercourse, abnormal urinary tract shape or function, changes in the estrogen levels during menopause and sometimes genetic causes. Apart from antibiotics which have to be taken for long terms, you need to drink plenty and plenty of fluids. Drink cranberry juice and wipe the bottom after defecation from front to back. Also avoid any deodorant sprays or feminine products around the area and use mild soaps and water for washing. Also try to empty your bladder as soon as possible after intercourse.

If the symptoms still persist then you may need a longer course of antibiotics. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
