  • you can get a UTI from: having sex, wiping back to front, holding pee in for too long..

  • my doc told me some women are just more prone to them than others. i used to get them all the time. still get kidney infections and bladder infections. my doc said it could just be that the opening of my urethra is formed in a way that more bacteria can get to easier. who knows...but they arent comfy!!
