Just need to know if any one else have dealt with reoccurring UTI’s while on Tamoxifen, and what have you done to prevent them? Thank you for your help.

Not tamoxifen but letrozole. Now I take a D-Mannose cranberry supplement (Amazon) everyday and try to drink enough water, and I haven't had one in awhile. Last year, I had 4. I also try to keep my parts down there well moisturized, as the estrogen blockers dry you out.

I had UTI during the beginning of the pandemic and since then tried to drink a lot of water, and cranberry juice if I feel like it’s coming on.
I also bought UTI test strips (from Amazon) just so I didn’t have to go in for an office visit. Thankfully haven’t had another one yet.
