Do any of you have experience with chronic UTI's? I am currently battling my fifth one. I am scared to death that I will just keep getting them and eventually I will have my earliest preemie yet because of the nasty things!

i said it in the other thread, and even though it was argued against, i will say it again here. water, water, water. a UTI is able to develop because of bacteria having time to sit in your kidneys, ureters, bladder, etc. so if you drink a lot of water (not GALLONS a day, by any means), then you pee frequently, and it flushes the bacteria out, instead of allowing it a chance to sit and develop.

cranberry pills, or cranberries period, and yogurt (or other probiotics) are great options.
