Urinary urge: You don't mention whether there is some burning on urination or what your urologist thinks is the problem. I assume urine cultures are negative for infection. Low grade nonbacterial urethritis or prostatic congestion and/or mild inflammation are possibilities that cause urge, but your urologist is best to answer your questions and advise you. In the meantime avoid caffeine and acidic drinks.

For High Risk Women: Having your ovaries removed is usually reserved for women with a significantly increased risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer due to an inherited mutation in the brca1 or brca2 gene — two genes linked to breast cancer, ovarian cancer and other cancers. High-risk women age 35 and older who have completed childbearing are the best candidates for this surgery.

Possibly: There are some studies that have shown that drinking cranberry juice may reduce the risk of contracting a urinary tract infections. It should be noted, however, that taking cranberry pills did not provide a similar benefit. Additionally, cranberry juice has not been found to help treat a urinary tract infection. Bottom line: may prevent infections but does not treat infections.
