THE BEST PREVENETION METHOD FOR UTI WHICH ACTUALLY HELPED ME IS STOP USING SOAP DOWN THERE!

I started getting UTIs since I got sexually active. It got cured in a few days but I did not finish the prescribed medicines, and my UTI came back after a few months. It then got so bad that no antibiotics would help me. I kept getting it over and over again, and some symptoms felt like they had become permanent.
I tried all the preventive measures including cranberry, cotton underwear, wipe from front to back etc etc..
I then came across a forum that suggested to stop using soap down there. So I stopped! I stayed fine for a few months but I got UTI again. That's when I figured the solution - DO NOT USE SOAP ANYWHERE NEAR URETHRA, BUT DO WASH YOUR ANUS WITH SOAP. Sorry for being so detailed, but thats what helped me.

Its been over 9 months that I haven't had an infection.And yes, baking soda combined with orange juice helps too. If I ever feel even tiny symptoms of an infection, I drink baking soda and orange juice. I have even got careless about wiping from front to back - and I am still doing fine :)

IF YOUR NOT USING SOAP THEN WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO USE DOWN THERE??????

Linda

Just plain water! Soaps, douches, bath oils, etc.
are not a good idea. Washing at least once a
day with water is fine and there should be no
odor. Ramp it up to twice a dsy if you feel you
need to.

My gyno told me to use safeguard. It's antibacterial soap. Nothing perfumed and absolutely no douche. I've been using this soap for years and have had no issues. No infections of any kind and I feel clean.
