I think its the bitter half.

"You gave me another UTI, you jerk."

Make sure your women pee after sex. The biatching, moaning, and the "it's your fault" crap that accompany a UTI are not worth it.

If that's what you're into, go for it!

i must be in that half. But I took care of the problem: I quit having sex.

Washing the body before and after sex can also decrease UTI risk, Zimmern suggests.

A lot of necrophiliacs say that.

The annoying, but easy-to-treat, ailment occurs when a bacterial infection flares up in the urinary tract, says Dr. Philippe Zimmern, a urologist at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

Everybody panic!!!!11

My girlfriend still can't drink anything with cran in it after having two about a two weeks apart (likely due to not finishing the first round of antibiotics) and just associating it with the pain/discomfort.

The best part was when her dad said "I know how you get those! Having lots of sex!" after he learned about it.

Now she pees every time after sex with consistency that would make Pavlov proud.

I've got an irritated urinary tract right now, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies...

scary? not really. although i guess if it was a chronic thing it'd be scary.

Back in the early nineties, when you needed a full blood workup and an act of congress to have unprotected sex with your girlfriend, I went for an STD check at the campus infirmary as a courtesy even though all the sex I was ever lucky to have had at the time, had been of the protected and boring variety.

They *ahem* "inserted" a metal q-tip into my *ahem* urinary tract.

It hurt like hell.

The doc told me to sit down and pee when I got home. He said it may sting to urinate.

When I finally got up the nerve, it felt like I was pissing molten farking lava mixed with alcohol coated razor blades and live badgers out of my urethra.

If a UTI feels anything like that, I truly feel sorry for anyone who gets one.
 
2008-11-20 09:41:26 PM  
Tell me somethin' good. Tell me that you like it, yeah.
 
2008-11-20 09:41:40 PM  
I wish it were the outside half. It'd be easier to treat. Plus, you'd know BEFOREHAND if they had a UTI.
 
2008-11-20 09:42:26 PM  
Why don't they just coat condoms with antibiotics?
 
2008-11-20 09:42:47 PM  
had a girlfriend got those pretty often, it sucked.

Ha! I worked at a community clinic and we used to schedule that for the dorkier college kids just to screw with them. They were so awkward they would never even question it.
 
2008-11-20 09:46:32 PM  
I got one once after having a catheter. I had none of the normal symptoms until it had spread into my kidneys, and then I got a fever and a horrible backache. I was in the hospital for 3 days.

If I knew now, I would have just asked for whatever pills it took to fix everything and forgone the agony.

I used to get UTIs so severe that when I finally made it to the clinic, I was crying and could barely walk for the pain.

It didn't help that I'd ignore them for a few days and try to make them go away by flushing myself with lots of alcohol.

I was very happy when these became OTC:

Now I can turn my pee orange even when I don't have a UTI!

Ungh!!! I am so sorry! I've got a friend with a story similar to yours, only now after getting them for the last 20 years, she just gets some meds and cranberry juice, grins and bears it, and shleps off to work.
Blech. I hope I never get one.
 
2008-11-20 10:00:12 PM  
A boyfriend once told me if you give a beej first you won't get a UTI. I can't remember the lying bastard's name but I hope he has had to piss fire more than a few times in his life.
 
2008-11-20 10:05:38 PM  
I was born with a birth defect in my bladder that caused me to get UTIs frequently as a child. They surgically corrected it when I was two, but I spent a lot of time in the hospital, and a good portion of my young life on antibiotics. Thank god I can't remember any of it.

/Got cranberry juice in my bottle instead of milk
 
2008-11-20 10:09:05 PM  
At least y'all getting UTI after sex are getting the sex first. I just get UTIs. Often.

/I've had kidney stones, too. My urinary tract hates me.
 
2008-11-20 10:11:13 PM  
A medical note: the last time I had an infection, I drank cranberry juice for two weeks, and it still hadn't gone away. When I finally went to the clinic, the doctor chewed me out for not coming in sooner, because she said that the infection was on its way to my kidneys. She said that it was "crystallizing" which, whatever that means, is VERY BAD.

I swear that I used to make UTIs go away with just cranberry juice, but she said that wasn't true--they would not go away completely unless you took medication. the juice just makes them less painful.

/I'd totally forgotten that you could get the meds OTC now.

Yes, it's like that with a great side of bladder cramping. Also, you feel the need to go all the farking time and can only manage a couple of fire drops. But you're close.

That's a good way to describe it. Then, once you go, you never get the feeling of relief. So you constantly feel like you have to go, but when you do it is awful.

Good times.

Nor would most people - they do what their clinicians tell them. It's not just dorky college kids.

Ugh. Just hearing the acronym makes me cringe. Only had 2 in my lifetime, and I cried like a baby.

Because the natural vaginal flora actually helps prevent infections by maintaining an acidic environment.

I get them all the time. Even peeing after sex doesn't work.

They never hurt though. In fact, I never notice them until they get into my kidneys and I spike a fever of 105 or I start pissing blood.

Good farking times.
 
2008-11-20 10:28:17 PM  
Guys. You're not supposed to pee inside them.
