• Pass urine immediately after a sexual intercourse. Apart from this, keep a check on the kind of underwear you use.
  • Maintain proper personal hygiene after urinating or defecating. Consult a doctor immediately in case of any recurrent symptoms.
  • Drinking cranberry juice has been thought to help decrease frequent infections. This is particularly true for women. Cranberries are known to contain substances that can prevent infection-causing bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract walls.
  • Make sure you are adequately hydrated and drink at least 7 to 8 glasses of water a day.
  • Choose lubricated condoms that do not contain spermicide. Spermicide can cause irritation and allow the bacteria to grow.
