Re: bladder infections after sex

Taking antibiotics before you have sex every time would be very unhealthy for your body. And it also wouldn't be good if you're on birth control pills since some antibiotics interact with the pill making it less effective.
I used to get infections too when I first started having sex with my boyfriend but eventually they went away. If they're so persistent then you should probably just go see a doctor. Having such chronic infections isn't healthy for bladder and kidneys.

If your looking for a preventative I've got one for you. I've been told that's best to pee after having sex to prevent urinary infections. When I found this out i was amazed I had never heard that before but it came strait from the doctors mouth. Give it a try!! Oh and Cranberry juice can help with urinary infections too.

Re: bladder infections after sex

100% agree with jujubean! I used to get them after sex as well and now I always pee after sex and never get them. Even if I don't really have to go, I drink some water and then go try because I don't want to get an infection. After a couple times of getting them before knowing to do this, I would know what it would feel like coming on, so I'd also take cranberry pills (you can buy these in the vitamin section at stores) and they work really well if you take them early enough.
