Although lots of factors play into whether you will acquire a bladder infection, an important factor is to consider: sex. It is important to get the bacterial count of the bladder down after sex. Peeing after you have sex actually can eliminate some bacteria that may just have been sitting around and help have fewer infections. If you have had multiple infections going on antibiotics for a longer duration of treatment, or using antibiotics after each episode of intercourse are possible solutions.Most recently it has been shown that probiotics an prevent UTIs. One such probiotic is called Lactin-V and it's the beneficial lactobacillus crispatus organism that is used as a vaginal suppository, but many are very helpful. If the new lactobacillus do take women will have less bladder infections So don't give up, UTIs can have serious health consequences if left unchecked, so try to get them under control!

The study was published online on September 16 in BMJ. You do need your gyno to validate the results however and to determine if you need a cervical cancer test, which cannot be done on urine. We also know that we have over 170 types of HPV that can be detected, but we worry the most about HPV 16 and 18, and type specific testing is most studied on the cervix. HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are best tested through blood testing however. Come in to gab with your gyno and get a plan for your personal testing.
This study did not receive any funding. The authors have disclosed no relevant financial relationships.
