Hello, this is such a weird thread to propose but I thought it’d be useful to some users who suffer from (repeated) urinary track infections. This might help relieve the symptoms and help you recover quicker when you’re using antibiotics. I have also found these practices, if involved in a daily routine have significantly reduced the occurrence of UTIs for me.
Drink the recommended minimum of water and then some. This assists in keeping the urinary track active and flushes out any foreign bacteria.
Cranberry juice is good for detoxing and releasing any toxins in the liver and urinary track. But the taste is a bit offensive to a lot of us, if you suffer from easily contracted UTIs I would recommend sucking it up. Literally haha, what I do is I fill a gal glass with 1/2 chilled water 1/2 cranberry juice and using a straw, drink the juice quickly so the bitter taste doesn’t stay in my mouth for too long. Cranberry juice is also known to rot your teeth so keeping the straw at the back of your mouth away from most of the teeth can reduce any of the side effects of this.

this natural UTI relief is a god send for girls who suffer from chronic or repeated UTIs. Many girls, including myself have seen that this capsule if taken daily can assist in preventing UTIs. If you’re currently suffering from one, you can also take up to 9 a day (3x morning, midday, night) and they do assist in making it easier to pee and keeping he urinary track in optimal health. This supplement also comes in powder form and many girls find it tasteless and easy to sprinkle over a bowl of porridge in the morning. Both options can be found on iHerb and are decently priced IMO.
“Pee after sex!”, everyone tells us, we do, still get a UTI. How I’ve found to assist this is, yes peeing after sex, but then getting a bottle of water or cranberry juice and downing it within the next half hour while my partner and I cuddle.
Dont use scented soaps and stay away from soaking in bath bomb water.... in my experience these two are serious culprits for sensitive girls and uncomfortableness down there. I recommended using warm water, your hand and an unscented non-soap like Cetaphil. Also, don’t buy fancy Fem-Fresh soaps, wash no more than daily, don’t douche and wipe front to back.
Diet can also assist. I have always found since eating less processed foods and oils that my urinary track is healthier. Consume water dense foods and stay away from consuming too many citrusy fruits.
Conclusion, I’m not a doctor nor gyno and I always recommend going to a dr when you have a UTI or alone symptoms. But if you’re sensitive and prone like me, practising these tips have resulted in being less prone to contracting UTIs following sex. As well as sped up recovery from UTIs.
i hope this helped xx
