Ummm … I find taking cranberry capsules (I can’t abide the taste of cranberry juice, even when mixed with other juices) helps to both prevent and treat UTIs, to which I’ve been prone all my life.
What you described in the OP is described in the US as “urgency” and most doctors are of the opinion that urgency, when it is unaccompanied by pain or burning at the time of micturition - or any other of the signs of a UTI, is fairly meaningless. Or at least most doctors I’ve talked with.
It could very well be that this symptom could be related to the early menopause, if indeed that’s what you’re having. You are rather young for menopause, which is usually described as having “normal” onset between the ages of 49 and 53. I think that you should discuss this with your family doctor, and perhaps see a GYN as well. There are some potential negative consequences to making this kind of assumption. Frex, certain kinds of cysts can produce some of the signs of menopause. And when they do, it is generally caused by their promoting the overproduction or underproduction of some particular hormone. However, it ain’t the Real Thing[sup]TM[/sup]. And it is not a good idea to just say, “Oh, well, I’m sure nothing’s wrong.” There are, alas, too many things that can go wrong with the female reproductive machinery, and some of them are potentially quite serious.
Good luck, and please let us know the outcome?
