I've had recurring UTIs for many years and have had about 30 prescribed doses of antibiotics for them as well as seeing a specialist. I posted here about 6 months ago asking for help but in the meantime I seem to have found the answer, for me anyway. my bladder entrance was damaged during childbirth some 40 years ago and this has allowed bacteria to enter the bladder and set up an infection. For many years now I've washed after opening my bowels or used wet wipes if I've been away from home and this has helped to a certain extent but a few months ago I made a point of increasing the amount of water that I drank and this seems to have done the trick. I never thought I was dehydrated and had to make a conscious effort to drink more so now I drink about 8 glasses of water a day. What made me start doing this was a day spent on the beach when I developed a UTI that evening and made the connection with getting hot and probably not drinking enough. Its such a simple thing to do! Please don't dismiss this advice until you've tried it. I suspect cups of tea or coffee wouldn't be as good as plain old water. Let me know via this forum if it works for you.
