Not really uti: It is thinning of the skin in the vagina from lack of estrogen . Only estrogen will help.It is possible that the brand of cream might neem a change, but if your urine was checked and gyn said the this was the problem then the cream is the only was to get the vaginal skin inside healthy again. It takes a while and does not work overnight
