I just found out that I have a UTI (likely due from forgetting to urinate after sex a few days ago. My fault...) and I will probably start on the antibiotics today or tomorrow. When you have a UTI, should you abstain from sexual activity until it clears up? Or is it ok to participate in sexual activity (provided it isn't painful or anything...I don't know if it would be or not) as long as you then remember to urinate afterwards, and you are on the antibiotics?

Thanks!

Yes, it's a good idea to refrain from sexual activity while it clears up. Honestly, it's pretty likely that wouldn't be very comfortable, anyway.

Thanks. That's pretty much what I figured.

No problem. [Smile] Another thing to keep in mind is if you are taking hormonal birth control, you may need to back it up with barriers like condoms for a cycle. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist about drug interactions if that's an issue.
