So You Have A UTI. Here’s What To Do Next
After you’ve recovered, make a plan to
prevent future UTIs. Ryan suggests taking a probiotic to restore your vaginal microbiome, because while your antibiotics kill off UTI bacteria, they also
kill off the good bacteria that helps prevent yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. If you have recurrent UTIs, your doctor may suggest taking a low-dose antibiotic regularly or using a UTI prevention product like
Uqora’s. Even if this was your first UTI, taking preventative actions such as wiping correctly,
peeing after sex, and staying hydrated is always a good idea.
