Since taking bactrum I have had 1 uti in the past 3 years. I use to get them ever couple of months. I hope this helps! Good luck!
oh ladies.. that used to be me. I no longer get bladder infections at all. My steps are
1. always go pee after having sex.. always, no compromise
2. always have a glass of cranberry juice after sex.. again, Always..
3. then I mix water with cranberry juice for the next day after.
This has completely cleared me up. (It's been an adjustment though because I really don't like the taste of cranberry juice.)
But it's really worked.
