can you get a UTI from too much sex
Me and my bf have sex sometimes 3 times a day. We both really enjoy it but I heard that's bad for you. Is it true that you can get an UTI (urinary track infection) from having sex too much? Does anyone have any knowledge about this?

Like everyone has mentioned, make sure you pee before and after. I have a tendency to get UTIs after sex as well, so my doctor gave me a back-up supply of macrobid (antibiotic) in case I felt one coming. Also, after I discovered my latex sensitivity, it helped with them. If you are having some issues with it and are using protection, you might want to look into polyurethane condoms. You'll feel sooo much better.
softbelly is right, up to 30 minutes after is ok, you don't have to jump right up and go pee, but it IS important to do it to avoid UTIs.....haven't heard much on the before thing!
