  • well that could be b/c of many different things, could be the bosy wash you use or soap, could be to much caffeine, could be from sex, if you or your partner has been alittle sweaty from work and you have sex that could also do it and I was told the last time I had one to make sure to pee before and after sex that helps also. Those are some things, I'm sure there is more but really only your dr. should tell you whats up.

  • it takes more than a day to heal from a UTI, so saying you are getting one every day to me, says you haven't healed from the first one. IMO you should ask your doc. Drink lots and lots of water in the mean time.

  • Sweetie are you sure it is a uti? Do you have a discharge or itching? Does it hurt when you void (pee) or do have discomfort in your lower abdomen?You have to have a urine test to tell you if t is a uti. And if you did have one the Dr. would have you on antibiotics. If there is itching and discharge that would most likely be a yeast infection. Both can be taken care of easily. OTC meds for a yeast infection and a dr visit for test and antibiotics. Yes make sure you puh those fluids too.
