I seem to get uninary tract infections often after sex with my boyfriend. We're both clean. Is there anything I can do to prevent this reoccurrence?
This is pretty common. Always urinate whether or not you have to 20 minutes or less after sexual contact of any kind. Cleanliness has nothing to do with it since there are always bacteria in the area of the vagina. You can also wipe with 1/2 water 1/2 tea tree oil from a pharmacy or health food store. This is a good cleanser. Worst case I put women on a prophylactic antibiotic to use day of sex this helps. If the above don't work talk to your dr about possibly also doing this.
Good luck
