Recurrent Urinary Tract infection
Hi Dr,

I have been suffering with this condition for almost three years. I have been using Macrodantin for at leat two years now. If I stop using it, I get an infection. I have also noticed that having sex with my boyfriend, half the times I end up with an infection, especially when not drinking the Macrodantin. We have started having a bath everytime before we have sex and I clean up afterwards, incase it could be one of us not being completely clean, but it does not help. Is there any advice you can give me?? I am really fed up!!

Try emptying your bladder before and after sex. With recurrent UTIs there may be a malformation of one of the parts of the urinary system. A urologist would be able to assess this.
