A post-menopausal woman's quality of life improves with simple dietary interventions

Rosa, a 56-year-old woman, presents with a problem of recurrent UTIs over the past year. 

She reported that she had noticed a past propensity to develop UTIs after sex with her husband,  particularly since menopause at the age of 52. 

Her husband had had a prostatectomy for prostate cancer a year ago and experienced low libido and difficulty with erections. Both Rosa and her husband were quite content not to have any more sex.

Rosa’s libido had also dropped with menopause and she had noticed vaginal dryness during sexual intercourse.
