Frequent UTis

on Jun 28, 2016 @ 05:09 pm

i have just returned from the clinic, with my 7th or 8th UTI in about 18 months.  I have followed all the rules I can find out there...drinking water, cranberry juice, wiping properly, no scented products, cotton undergarments, and yet 7 weeks following my last one, I have another.. "Raging" per the doctor.  Widowed 2 years ago, I am not sexually active, so it's not related to sexual practices.  My doctor seems unimpressed, of course every time I get one, he's not in the office so I end up going to a walk in clinic.  I am 52..any one out there have any tips I haven't heard off?  I'm a health care worker, and even found out the proper position to void (sitting up straight, hands on knees, then slightly leaning forward once finished) I want to avoid them, I am allergic to penicillin and silva so there's not a lot of antibiotics out there that are effective, and I'm worried about building a tolerance.

Drink lots of water, try and avoid coffee, alcohol, and spicy foods, wear pants that are not tight, drink cranberry juice, eat plain yogurt; the list goers on Good luck to you

Unfortunately the more you get the more likely you are to get them again. I have had my share of them but mine were caused from sex. I now make sure I pee when I feel the need and it has done me wonders. There are cranberry pills I took for a while and powder and it did seem to help.
