  • They need to give you a stronger antibiotic, and you need to drink a ton of water, and low sugar cranberry juice.

  • how about other things instead of UTIs. think outside the box. do you use anything in that region that has latex in it? underwear, adult toys, condoms? how about dairy products? try not using any for a day or two. I am allergic to all these things and get symptoms of a UTI due to them that wont go away if i dont take those things away. during pregnancy you can be more sensative. try also cranberry juice, lots of it to flush your system

  • I got them a lot during the first of my pregnancy. Apparently it was from having sex and not going to the bathroom afterwards. I don't know if that's true or not.

    Cranberry juice helps

  • I did with my first pregnancy, and when I found out i was pregnant this time i got a UTI right away. I make sure I drink tons of water and cranberry juice daily.

    I was also told it was from having sex and not peeing right away after, so I make sure I pee after, everytime!
