UIT's have many causes. You should urinate before and after sex. During sex bacteria in the vaginal area can be massaged into the urethra by the motion of the males penis. Waiting to long to urinate causes the bladder to stretch beyond its capacity and over time it may weaken the bladder muscle. When that happens the bladder is weakened and has a hard time completely emptying which can cause urine to be left in the bladder. That can increase the risk of UTI's.

I can't take baths cause it causes me to get a UTI and I can't drink oj any more for the same reason the amount of acid in it gives me a UTI. I have to sanitze my water bottle after each use or I will get a UTI. I refrain from sex mainly while on the Cipro. I just feel dirty but I dont' want any more bacteria to get in there while I'm trying to kill the ones I have.
I am usually given Cipro for 10 days to clear it up.

I wipe from front to back after a bowel movement or urination. I drink plenty of water. Drinking plenty of water each day will help flush bacteria out of the urinary system along with emptying the bladder as soon as you feel the urge. Doctors say urinating before and after sex is good for flushing out any bacteria that may enter the urethra during sexual intercourse.
