If you get UTIs often, your doctor may consider:

A daily low dose of antibiotics, taken for 6 months or longer.
Taking a single dose of antibiotics after having sex.

If you’ve gone through menopause, you could ask about estrogen vaginal cream. After menopause, women have less estrogen in their bodies, which can cause vaginal dryness and make the urinary tract more vulnerable to infection. The treatment can help balance the area’s pH factor and allow “good” bacteria to flourish again.
