Re: Bladder Infections after Sex

I know your pain! Last year I got about 7 in a few months. Here is what has worked for me:

ALWAYS pee after sex. You can pee before sex too, but honestly I don't find that it makes any difference unless you actually have to pee. Drink some water ahead of time if you have to. Doing this pushes out bacteria that may have been pushed in during sex.

Take cranberry tablets - you can buy them at any drug store. You take two a day and they help keep infections at bay.

Pee as soon as you feel the need to - don't wait, if you hold it, this can cause infections.
