After women reach menopause, they often develop recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs).
The symptoms of recurrent UTIs are the same as the first UTI, including pain with urination and needing to pee suddenly and often.
Urine testing can confirm the diagnosis. If you have another UTI within 2 weeks of the last one, it might mean that the last antibiotic didn’t work.
Antibiotics are often ineffective in clearing recurrent UTIs associated with menopause, because the hidden cause is reduced estrogen.
Some doctors prescribe both estrogen and antibiotics. This combination may work better, but repeated use of estrogen and antibiotics often cause serious side effects. These include increased risk of cancer and yeast infection.
However, many patients, like breast cancer survivors, cannot use estrogen. Their urologists would recommend them to try NeuEve to find relief.
Then, how does NeuEve clear recurrent UTIs effectively without using estrogen and antibiotics?
In a woman, the pelvic tissues that support the bladder also support the uterus, the major female reproductive organ.
When the woman becomes pregnant, the uterus enlarges and becomes heavier. Its support tissues also become stronger to hold the heavy uterus up. Thus, these support tissues, like the pelvic floor muscle (also called Kegel) and the vaginal wall respond to female reproductive hormones and are rich in estrogen receptors.
After menopause, the reproductive activity stops and the support for an enlarged uterus is no longer needed. Support tissues for the uterus and bladder, like the pelvic floor muscle and vaginal wall, become atrophied due to a lack of nutrient supply directed by estrogen.
Like uterus, the bladder is also a weight-bearing organ. When a bladder of a woman is filled with urine, it weighs about 17 ounces.
Due to weakened tissue support, the filled bladder can drop its position, laying back against the front wall of the vagina, becoming prolapsed.
As a result, a portion of the urine in the bladder is trapped. It cannot be emptied completely by urination because it falls below the opening of the urethra, causing urine retention.
Without flushing out all the urine, bacteria can grow in the bladder.
The old urine in the bladder is frequently diluted by new urine. Antibiotics secreted into the bladder are also frequently diluted, becoming less effective in clearing bacteria. This explains why antibiotics often fail to clear recurrent UTIs associated with bladder prolapse.
NeuEve delivers nutrients to nourish atrophied soft tissues like calcium and vitamin D for bones. After receiving needed nutrients, the atrophied vaginal wall and pelvic floor muscle regain their strengths. As a result, the prolapsed bladder gradually regains support from its surrounding tissues.
You can start with NeuEve Silk suppository and vulva balm cream. After using NeuEve for a while, often 1-3 months, the previously prolapsed bladder may return to its original upright position.
Because NeuEve delivers the needed nutrients directly to the atrophied pelvic tissue, it works more effectively than estrogen. It is safer as it is hormone free.
Bladder prolapse is an aging outcome. The treatment against aging is an uphill battle as we get older every day. Thus, healing bladder prolapse is a race against aging. The speed of healing is important.
If your recurrent UTIs have been bothering you for several years, you may have a severe case. If your recovery is slow, you can try the combination of multiple approaches to speed up the recovery. These incude using NeuEve, eating right foods and nutrients, and doing Kegel exercise.
After the prolapsed bladder returns to its original upright position, all urine in the bladder can be emptied fully every time when you pee. Bacteria are also flushed out. Thus, your bladder infection is cleared.
Bladder prolapse may also be repaired with a surgery. But such a surgery has a high rate of failure of 25-60%. A synthetic mesh can increase the success rate but the mesh can introduce more health risk to women. Thus, a non-surgical method to fix bladder prolapse is desirable.
Unlike antibiotics and estrogen, which are less effective and have significant side effects, NeuEve, along with dietary supplement and Kegel exercise, is more effective to restore a mild bladder prolapse and it is free of side effects.
Because it is all natural, your recurrent UTIs and/or bladder prolapse will be healed safely.
Natural healing is the best healing.

Customer reviews on UTI relief
December 23, 2022
I had 8 UTIs in 8 months. My doctor wanted me to use estrogen cream. I did not. After researching I found NeuEve vulva balm cream which appeared to be all natural and same concept as estrogen.
I started using it. No UTIs since starting product.
I developed chronic dry, peeling skin around eyes and nothing worked. Although it isn’t an eye cream, I put this same cream around eyes and they are healed and actually appear to have reduced lines and my eyes look bright.

I have only been using this cream for a few months now. I cannot use hormone treatment because of breast cancer. Very happy with this product and being all-natural. It has helped with the vaginal atrophy and I have not had a urinary tract infection since I started using it. Has helped with the dryness also.

Over the past year I had been experiencing frequent urination and itching, as though I had an infection. I went to my gynecologist who advised me that I was experiencing severe vaginal dryness. I tried a few products that only helped for a few days before the problem returned. I searched the web for help and found NeuEve. The reviews were positive so I gave it a try. It'll take awhile as my case was severe, but I am finding relief and healing!

Yesterday I received my NeuEve Silk and I knew I had to try it at bedtime. I have been in menopause since I was 33 years old and I am 64 now. I had cancer and therefore was afraid to use estrogen cream vaginally which is what doctors have said for years that I need. I was afraid to use it, so I just did not listen.
Fast forward to now and I have been miserable. I have had a dull aching and it feels like when you feel like a UTI is coming on not to mention the awful dryness, so the doctor said I had no choice but to use the estrogen.
I was so miserable I started using it. Taking the instructions out and reading all the warnings freaked me out! So, I got on the internet and prayed there was something else out there to help me, there just had to be!
That is when I stumbled upon the info about NeuEve. I read everything I could find on it and felt like I had nothing to lose because the options were few and far between. I put my first suppository last night and it didn’t take long to melt, and my body absorbed it almost immediately that is just how dry I am “down there”! This is what I do not understand...how can the dull aching and the feeling of getting a UTI be gone?
One application and I feel this good? After suffering for years and sex being so painful?
I have hope now. My plans are to use all three stages of NeuEve. This is an absolute miracle and bless you Dr. Chang for creating a product like this that is going to help so many of us. Wait till I see my doctor and if things keep progressing like this, I will be stopping the estrogen cream and will stay on NeuEve for the rest of my life.

I ordered these for my mother-in-law and this is what she has to say:
"My urologist told me to get these! I was having constant UTI's for the past few years, I'm 58 and after being diagnosed with breast cancer at 49 and then being told to have my ovaries removed too. I had everything taken out except my vagina. After that, it was much too painful for any of that kind of fun!
I do believe in miracles and maybe your product will make it possible again!!! Your product has made me feel so much better! I do not have the horrible feeling of getting a UTI anymore or any dryness and not one UTI since I started!!! Which is huge!!! So, thank you for caring enough for women's health to make such a wonderful product!!!
This is such a hard subject to discuss no one talks about it and not something I normally would but I think I need to tell you it is working so far! The price is high, but I will just have to save somewhere else!!!
It's been about 6 weeks since I started and I can feel the walls of my vagina are starting to soften which had hardened ( I've even had surgery to clip scar tissue that was like rings actually closing my vagina) I didn't even know if I could get one of your suppositories in!!! But had no problems!!!
I felt I needed to write this because it is the first thing that has worked!!! I'm not sure I would have tried this because of the price if my doctor hadn't told me to. I think if you were to give some samples to doctors so more women could try them. More women would be using them even if they tried them once they could see how they could change their lives too!!!
Please know you really are helping women like me and I just have to say Thank you again!!!"

I will try not to go into a lot of detail, but at 61, I was beginning to wonder whether I should once again use an estrogen-based product for vaginal atrophy.
I first tried estrogen when my GYN. recommended it after post-menopause. I used it for about a year and it did work very well, but just did not like using estrogen - I especially do not like that it comes from horse urine. That was about 6 or 7 yrs. ago.
The conversation came up again after a stubborn UTI, then an antibiotic-induced yeast infection. There seems to be some literature suggesting that atrophy and UTI's are connected. But I just do not want to use estrogen - and literature is varied on the opinions - health benefits and risks. I thought I'd give NeuEve a try as I had used another brand of vaginal suppository before - but the other brand had a medicinal smell I didn't like, and it didn't do much to change the atrophy.
This product has impressed me. I also ordered the small jar of cream to put on daily. So far, so good. I have felt much more comfortable. The product is more than I would like to pay, but I ordered my second box. I started with Silk - their recommendation but ordered Silver the second time by accident --because I think the Silk formula was doing its job. But now I will be able to compare anyway. I recommended at least trying it.

My urologist recommends these suppositories. I found them to be most effective. Still use in conjunction with estrogen cream, so cannot say how effective they would be on their own. For now, they meet my immediate needs in the manner that I am using them.

When deciding whether to purchase this product I read through almost all the reviews. Most said either the product worked or did not and no other information is given, so I want to write a review that will hopefully be helpful to others.
I was widowed at a relatively young age and had not had sex for over 12 years. I recently met someone, and we wanted to be intimate. I talked to my doctor and she gave me a prescription for hormone cream. It did not work and having sex was a disaster! It was very painful, I had spotting due to vaginal atrophy, and got a flaming UTI. I did not want to give up so I went online looking for a product that would work for me.
I found the New Eve products and saw that they were available on Amazon, so I tried them. The next time we had sex, there was NO spotting at all which I was thrilled about. The 3rd time there was no spotting, no pain, and no UTI. The product worked for me and it was worth the price. I am not going to go looking for something cheaper because there is no guarantee it will work. I have something that works and I'm happy about that.

NewEve Exceeds Expectations
It has been 4-1/2 months since I started using NewEve, following the regimen with the cream, Silk, and Silver. Lesson learned: The more advanced the atrophy, the more time and patience it takes to reverse the condition. In fact, at age 76, the results are nothing short of miraculous.
NewEve has delivered on its promises - and more. I may move on to the Gold formula at some point, but in the meantime, life is great. That said, I have a clear recall of the misery I suffered before finding the solution - and I did not even have BV or UTIs! Still, I want to shout about this from the rooftops.
Every woman out there deserves to know about NewEve so she can make her own choices. Yeah, it is pricey, but it's worlds ahead of the alternatives. Thank you, Dr. Chang.

Helped my UTIs
I am a breast cancer survivor with chronic UTIs. I was told that they were caused by vaginal atrophy due to loss of estrogen, but I cannot use any estrogen due to the cancer diagnosis. I tried this product to see if it would help, and to my amazement, it did!
The atrophy was causing inflammation in my urinary tract, and the inflammation was attracting bacteria, generating an infection. I had one almost constantly for 3 years.
Literally the first time I used the product I could see and feel a difference. I have not had a UTI since starting this product. The rest of the benefits of no atrophy are great, but I am so grateful to have found this helpful product for my urinary tract. Hopefully, other sufferers will find the same result.

My BV causes UTI and this is the only thing that breaks the cycle for me.

I have been using the Silk formula for about five months. I had post-menopausal vaginal dryness which was contributing to repeated UTIs. The dry atmosphere promoted bacterial growth. In addition, I had extreme vulvar pain (vulvodynia) and every remedy I tried felt as though I was applying acid.
I was desperate after three rounds of antibiotics in four months and still had horrible burning pain. My doctor prescribed hormone cream but I was reluctant to use it since there is a history of breast cancer in my family.
While desperately searching online (sitting on a cold compress at the time) I came across NeuEve and ordered immediately, both the silk formula and the cream to start with. I experienced immediate relief, using the cream daily for about the first month and the suppositories twice weekly as directed. No more UTI's!
Immediate relief and freedom from the burning! I saw my GYN for the yearly checkup two weeks ago and he is very happy that the dryness has resolved. He thanked me for the information about NeuEve and said that he is pleased to have a safe alternative to the hormone cream to recommend to patients.
I am just about to try the Silver formula. I will never be without NeuEve! Dr. Chang is obviously very knowledgeable about this problem to have created such an effective treatment. I will be forever grateful that she did!

Thank you so much and I am sure you've heard it before, but this is such an answer to prayer!!!! Thank you.
I am just turning 50 this year but very healthy, young, and live very organic and holistically. I was devastated to start having painful sex issues thinking there was nothing all-natural to help.
To find your product was a little miracle for me! Also, I think it took care of the other little issue I had with small tiny but growing white bumps on the outside of the Urethra and the Urologist said it was an Estrogen problem. THANK YOU!!
Customer feedback on bladder prolapse or leaky bladder relief
IT REALLY WORKS, EVEN FOR BLADDER PROLAPSE!!!!
Excellent product! I can't say enough about this.
I was diagnosed 2.5 months ago with Bladder Prolapse. My Gynecologist recommended
Estrogen suppositories for 3 months to strengthen the area inside. He said that without that, surgery would surely fail.
Well, having had Breast Cancer 2.5 years ago, I wasn't too excited about using Estrogen.
I scouted online for a natural alternative and found NeuEve. I saw that people got quicker results doubling up on the monthly box so that's exactly what I did. 2 boxes of Silk per month + the Cream every other night.
I don't have insurance, and this was so much cheaper than Estrogen, not to mention healthier for me.
To my surprise and delight, I can honestly say that I am seeing a 50% - 60% improvement so far. I'm hoping that another 2 months on this product will cure this, and I will no longer require the surgery at all.
If you're reading this, TRY IT!!!!
