You might not be getting your period due to stress, diet change or exercise change. All the best. Thank you for what you are doing.

I think you need to make sure you drink plenty of liquid particularly water, that will help prevent the UTI and help get rid of it quickly, down lots of glasses per day.I agree with Lucey that stress might affect your periods,Best of Luck  we are thinking about you .

Cranberry juice or Azo tabs work really well for a lot of people with UTIs.  Be careful, though, because cranberry juice is also a diuretic.  Thanks for serving!
