Smile Urinay Tract Infection-(from sex) - How long should you wait to have sex again?

I just got my 2nd urinary Tract infection, Last one was 5 months ago. I am 42 yrs, so this is all new to me. I have heard once you start getting them, they continue to come on a regular basis--- I hope this is not always true ?? Doc gave me 6 cipro pills (for 3 days), this does not seem like much, maybe because he felt the infection was small? I know they SPIN your urine, then look at it under the micrscope somehow, plus send it away for cultures, anyone else have a persciption this small --for just 3 days and cleared completely up? Do you also continue to get urinary Tract infections once they start? How to manage --Advice on how much to drink, what to drink, what supplements to take to not allow this to keep happening. Thank you all.

I have had mine since October but, got over it Dec. I had to take bactrim then Septra, first time did not clear it up. Drink lots and lots of water and proper hygiene. Don't know what else to say. I do go back in next month again to get it checked again but, I don't know really what for.

I just bought some time release cranberry supplements, I am hoping between those and lots of water, these things will stay at bay. ANyone else try cranberry supplements--and have had good results after recurring UTI's ? Thanks to all

Hi - yes, cranberry works. But, for me, the best wasn't the capsules, but the real cranberry juice (not from concentrate). It is sour, but I dilute with OJ (half and half) and drink a big glass a day. It really works.

It's also expensive $12.00 per llitre, but worth it, I think. Try it.

I am not sure what you mean by "real cranberry juice, not from concentrate", if I wanted to look this up, what would I call this item? I imagine it must be stored in the refrigerator then? Is this kind of thing only available online or maybe GNC has it ? Where would I find it. Thanks.

I think if you go to a health food store, they would know. It's pure berries made into a juice, and not from concentrate. You could search on the web and just type in: pure cranberry juice - and then you will see "not from concentrate". You will also know by the price - it should cost around $12.And yes, keep it in the fridge.

I buy it at health food stores or better grocery stores....I don't think it's hard to find in the US. I can easily find it up here in Canada. Try it.
