    Hi Therese

    I had the same problem! For me they started when I started taking immunosuppresant meds (Cellcept) They seem to occur a day or two after having intercourse. And these infections came on and off for several years! I tried everything my urologist suggested taking an antibiotic (250 mg cipro) every time I had sex which didn't seem like a good solution. So I went looking for one on my own and found it!!!

    I started taking D-Mannose with Cran-Actin made by Solaray and have not had a UTI since!!!. It's available at the health food store. I take two capsules before intercourse and two caps the next day since that is when I tend to get the infections. If that is not your issue, I would suggest taking two every day for a couple of months to see if you get results from it. It works to prevent bacteria from latching on to the walls of your bladder.

    I swear by it! It has changed my life!
