Can anyone help me? When I was with my ex I'd get cystitis and UTI's all the time. I'd pee blood and be in serious discomfort. A course of antibiotics later the UTI would have gone, but then I'd get thrush With me, it's all caused by sex! If I have a right good session I'm in agony 2 days later. I know I'm meant to pee straight after, but sometimes (like Friday ) It wouldn't have been very romantic to shoot off to the loo, plus the fact that I was tipsy and couldn't be bothered! So, I'm on my way to the docs in an hour, with a sample that looks like ribena . Does anyone else get this? The peeing after sex doesn't always work either, so I'm looking for any tips on how to avoid this cycle, as it starts to make me not want sex because I know what's coming (no pun intended ) I drink tonnes of water, and the day after I always have a litre of cranberry juice too. Am I destined for a life of UTI's?
