I found this:

What can I do to avoid getting an infection?

Take these steps to minimize your chances of getting a UTI:

• Drink plenty of water, at least eight 8-ounce glasses a day.

• Don't ignore the urge to pee. And empty your bladder completely when you urinate.

• After a bowel movement, wipe yourself from front to back to prevent bacteria in the stool from getting near the urethra. Keep your genital area clean with mild soap and water.

• Clean your genital area and pee before and after sexual intercourse.

• Drink cranberry juice. Studies show that cranberry juice can reduce bacteria levels and discourage new bacteria from taking hold in the urinary tract. (Drinking cranberry juice won't cure an existing infection, though, so if you're having symptoms, you still need to see your practitioner right away to get a prescription for antibiotics.)

• Avoid feminine hygiene products (sprays or powders) and strong soaps that can irritate your urethra and genitals and make them a better breeding ground for bacteria. And don't use douches during pregnancy.

• Wear all-cotton underwear and cotton-crotch pantyhose.


I hope that helps!

well...i do suffer from lots of UTI's....and i know they suck.. intercourse can cause them...especially if it lasts for a long time... and of course you are suppose to pee asap afterwards.. you'd better go get a UA done so you can treat it if you have one...cause they can get very bad. the before mentioned advice sounds great too. good luck to you
