Of course: Many mopausal and post menopausal women have urethritis because of the lowering of estrogen in the area. See your doc get a urine check and there are plenty of antibiotics and other meds to help. Good hygiene, fluids, and cranberry pills or juice are old standbys to help. Persistent and recurrent urethritis may need the attention of a Urologist for further testing. Bladder tumors and stones.
