One month Cystitis - Please Dr. help

I am a woman, 22, I have my first cystitis ever and it is getting really depressing after a month of suffering. I tried so many things, one sache antibiotic(helped a little), uva ursi tea, cranberry sachets, herbal supplements for cystitis, but they did't heal me, only made me not feel the pain for the time taking a lot of them. I know that if I go to the doctor they will try to 'heal' me with antibiotics. But that way the infection will probably return, and maybe become chronic, so I don't like that at all. I don't know if one month it could be chronic already, you will tell me.
So, my sister has a chronic cystitis for years I am very scared, I am on the brink of tears. I can't have a normal life b/c I have to go to the bathroom every 15 or 30 mins sometimes. I would be so grateful if you help me, please.
I decided to try to cure myself with homeopathy, becouse I know it is less likely for the cystitis to return, once cured with homeopathy.
I tied only Cantharis 9 CH, and it helped some, but not at all completely.
I will fill this questionare (sorry for any mistakes, I am not an american)
Also in my country we have the potencies with CH, so if you can give me advice about remedy in that potency it would be great. Thank you.
1. Describe your main suffering? Frequent urge to urinate, pain and irritation of the bladder, some pain and irritation in the urethra, hurts at the moment when I start urination, also hurt in the end and after I empty the bladder. Also my urine feels hot. I feel uncomfortable all the time, and I feel my bladder not healthy.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body? I had an inflamed ovary(but the doctor wasn’t sure) 2 months ago, but she game me vitamins A+E, so now it’s good(or at least feels good). Started getting longer pms and bigger painful boobs(I think from the growth) and more pain at the 1-st day of my period.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
I feel sad, depressed even(sometimes), little irritated, mad at the world(a little), I am scared that this is how I will have to live for the rest of my life.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Terrified that maybe I won’t be helped, or can't be.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
How it happened: party, at which I didn’t feel comfortable mentally, then sex with my bf(but we’ve been together five months and it is not the first time we have sex),
the next day I went back to my hometown for the holidays, I think I was cold a couple of nights, also hear started my long two week pms,
the next two weeks I started going to the toilet once every night(when usually none)
the third week started the irritation and pain and for a couple of days it was getting worse, then I took 1 sache of monural(antibiotic) and got little bit better, but from then 2-3 weeks tried many things with only temporary results.

6. Which time of the day you are worst? I can’t really tell, maybe evening.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate (make better) the same? Agg: lying down, pressure, for example from tight pants, alcohol, drinking cold water, sex, sometimes moving
amel: maybe heat, standing up

8. Do you think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)? My pms was starting at the first symptoms, but I don’t know if it happened because of that. Maybe started from cold feet.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather? I prefer hot but not too hot and i prefer dry.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times? yes
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc? yes

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc? I talk to myself

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife? I love them all, although my dad is an alcoholic and he makes us very angry and sad sometimes. I love my boyfriend, although I sometimes worry he might be still in love with his ex.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly? I fear illnesses, not being able to live a normal life, and living my life alone. Also that I won’t be able to have a normal sex life with my bf or another, bc of the illness. I love sex.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions? I love lasagna, I crave salty foods, hate tomatoes, olives, cooked cabage.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general? yes

20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all? I try not to whine as much to others(burden them) and try to always find a way to fix things.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Will analyze and come back!

I hope you didn't forget about me. I still need your help. I had to go out of the country for 3 days and I couldn't take it anymore. The doctor gave me antibiotics. This cystitis~chlamidia tipe. They thought it might be this,but they aren't sure. So I took it, they were 3 pills, they told me it will act 10 days. So I still really need your remedy, in case it does't work completely or comes back. I am still terrified, please don't forget about me!
I would be extremely thankful if you help me.
Best regarts, Maria

Please get Cantharis 200CH and update me when you have it.

How long you have had PMS?
Zady101 9 years ago
My PMS was two weeks, but now I started birth control pills, so it is managed.

I wrote you that I tried Cantharis and it didn't work. Also here we only have potencies 9CH 15CH and 30CH for the homeopathy pills.

Please analyze again if you have the time.

Thank you so much for your time.
mariasmith 9 years ago

I don't prescribe without analysis.
Zady101 9 years ago
Oh, I didn't mean that. Ofcourse you prescribe only with analysis. I only meant that the cantharis didn't work for me, so if you could look again if you have the time.

Also my urine tests, including the culture all came back negative.
mariasmith 9 years ago
How many doses did you take of Cantharis 9CH, how many pellets per dose, and how did you dose - in water or dry.

So PMS is also first time only and started after cystitis?

Any PMS symptoms that you missed above?
Zady101 9 years ago
PMS was not the first time, but I told you I used to take vitamins A+E, for 2 months, becouse the genecologist said I need them for hormonal balance. So the stronger PMS started with them. But now I am no longer taking them.

I think my cystitis started when my feet were cold for a couple of nights.

I took 5-6 doses of cantharis 9CH, dry x3 pellets under the tongue. At first it worked some, but then it appered again and I took the second and so on doses. I even think it irritated my bladder a little and more my urethra.

I'm sorry if I'm inconveniencing you. Thank you.

ok. are u taking antibiotics now?
Zady101 9 years ago
No, but they told me this last one acts 10 days, so now it is day 8.
mariasmith 9 years ago
ok then we will start with Cantharis 9CH.

Please get a small mineral water bottle, approx 330 ml or less.

Take out 15-20% water from it so that there is some space.

Put 3 pellets of Cantharis 9CH in it. Once they dissolve, give the bottle 10 hard hits against your opposite palm.

1 dose = 1 cap

before each dose u hv to give 10 hits to the bottle.

Take a dose every 2 hours for a max 6 times on day 1.

update me after 1st day doses are over. If you feel much better, you may limit the doses to 5 and skip the 6th dose, like that.
Zady101 9 years ago
It took me little time to find where I left it.

but...WOW, I feel so much better, really..usually I get up at least once a night with strong urge to pee, but tonight I didn't. Even in the morning when I woke up..no urge.

Thank you so MUCH. GOD BLESS YOU.

I think on the scale 1 to 15, I have irritation 1-2, but I can't exactly say.

I will update you.

Thank you again!!!I am in your dept.

Ok, so..
I have some very mild irritation in the bladder, most of the irritation that is left is in my urethra, it is like very mild burning, and 'I am about to pee' sort of irritation.

Waitning for you reply. Thank you again.
mariasmith 9 years ago
Please dose for 1 more day from the same bottle and update me.

Do not exceed 6 doses in a day. if there is relief lesser doses will suffice.

Adjust your doses according to the situation.
Zady101 9 years ago
I am better, while not peeing very little irritation, almost none.
But my symptoms changed. I still feel my bladder not completely healed, gets very aggrivated my alcohol and carbonated drinks(I had couple of sips only)
Now when I actually pee there is pain-1.when I am just about to pee, WHILE I am peeing, and same in the end.
Gets better from warmth.
Waiting for your replay.Thank you so much for your time and help.
mariasmith 9 years ago

Please continue dosing from the same bottle after 10 hits before every intake for 1 more day, 5-6 doses as per need.

If upon dosing, irritation increases, then discontinue for some time.

Avoid coffee and carbonated drinks also for the time being.
Zady101 9 years ago
I have been reading about this scary thing called interstitial cystitis. Do you think that is what I have. Today I am very sad and depressed.
I am continuing with your prescription, I still have some irritation, today got worse when I was drying off from the shower, and my wet feet got little bit cold. Is is normal to still be that sensitive and for the symptoms to come and go during the day, although I am taking the Cantharis.

Thank you so much for your time. You are my hope.
mariasmith 9 years ago
There is nothing to be sad about.It is just a one month old infection and will resolve with some treatment.

How much relief you have at present.

Discontinue Cantharis for half a day
Zady101 9 years ago
At the moment my bladder is only irritated on the scale 1 to 10, 1. More irritated+ little burning is in my urethra. And also it hurts in my urethra when I pee.

I will discontinue Cantharis for half a day as you told me.

Thank you for responding to me so fast and helping me.
mariasmith 9 years ago
I feel like yesterday morning, maybe little bit more irritation in the bladder and urethra. Still hurts when I pee.
How should I proceed.

Thank you so much.
mariasmith 9 years ago

Please begin dosing from the same bottle after hitting bottle 10 times, every 2,3 or 4 hours as needed.

Please bring Cannabis Sativa 30CH and Cantharis 30CH
Zady101 9 years ago
I am afraid I can't find Cannabis Sativa on the site of the homeopathic pharmacy we have here. I will go to the pharmacy if it is open today(Sunday) and ask. But if I can't get it is there an alternative?

Thank you for helping me.
mariasmith 9 years ago
Mo problem. Just continue dosing with the same bottle.

So at present, pain + burning is there at the beginning, during and close of urination.
Zady101 9 years ago
I didn't understand. I asked you is there an alternative to Cannabis Sativa if I can't get it?

At the present the pain+ burning is like you described but sometimes it doesnt hurt at the end of uniration.

Also if I can't find Cantharis 30ch is there a way we can dilute mine 9ch to be 30 ch?
Thank you.
