Hello, I have this serious issue of having had UTIs almost all the time since I became sexually active.
I have tried so many things said effective, such as keeping my and my partners hands always clean, peeing after sex, cranberry juice, over the counter meds etc. but they haven’t really worked well. And I always feel this horrible urge to pee even though I don’t actually need to pee, and feel sore in my bladder.
I can’t be bothered to go to see my GP every time it occurs because it’s SO OFTEN and I would like to just deal with it on my own.
If anyone knows any tips or advice then that will be really appreciated! Thank you

Hiya! I know this can be a very awkward or uncomfortable topic but I would definitely recommend going to a sexual health walk-in centre and asking advice there or for an appointment. This way you do not encounter the same dr and may find they have different or more helpful advice. A second opinion never hurts. I know it may be hard, but I would also recommend refraining from sexual activities for say a week or two and see whether this makes a difference, giving your body a chance to repair. Lastly, make sure you wear condoms; especially if you have multiple partners, it's easy to lie and say "I was tested last month I'm clean" yet they have something they don't even know they have. I hope help's, wish the best for you

Also, make sure that when you take over counter medicines that they are for UTI's not just your symptom's like painkillers are although they be nice to have in addition, and that if you use antibiotics, that you stick to the recommended amounts consistently to avoid antibiotic resistance.

I would speak to your GP about this. Sometimes, they can put you on regular antibiotics to stop you from getting UTIs all the time. Or it might be that there is something else going on and these are not actually UTIs. Either way, your GP is the best person to speak to.
