  • My Dr. told me if my DH is well endowed that's the reason, or rough sex. Or you left on a wet bathing suit for too long.

  • Things that can help: wearing white cotton undergarments, the way you wipe (front to back), making sure your jeans are not too tight in the crotch area, and ensuring you have enough lubrication during sex.

  • pee before and after sex. Bacteria might be hitching a ride up your urethra during sex.

  • Another is if you take baths, stop - stick with showers - my 2nd DD got frequent UTI/bladder infections because of baths - she hasn't had one since we stopped with them.
