Okay ladies. I have a question. I’ve had UTIs before, they’re awful, no one enjoys them. I’m a little concerned about the “what if” I get one while on the honeymoon? I mean they’re not called “honeymooners syndrome” for nothing… We’re going to be on a private island in friggin Belize, it’s not like there’s a pharmacy or resort doctor around. Should I ask my doctor for a prescription for antibiotics before we go? Am I being super paranoid here?!

I’m super-prone to them too and I know that people do ask the doc for an emergency prescription before they leave. I for sure will be doing that. I ended up with a kidney infection and spent two days in the hospital/ER after one didn’t get the proper treatment, so that is NOT something I want to happen on my honeymoon!
Good luck! You’re NOT being paranoid, you’re being SAFE! Hopefully you won’t need the meds, but still.

I would suggest that if you’re concerned, go and get one. I am sure this is something that the doctor comes across all the time…

You might already be doing this, but make sure you go pee IMMEDIATELY after… it. You know what I mean? No cuddling, run straight to that bathroom! I used to have frequent UTIs and this has helped tremendously.
Also Make sure you are drinking a lot of water, and some people say taking cranberry supplement helps to prevent them.
AND, when I was on Esogen BC I was much more prone to UTIs, so if you are on a pill, switching it might help.

im also prone to them and plan on taking tons of cranberry supplements the 2 weeks before the wedding and during the honeymoon. i’ll also ask for an emergency supply, but im not 100% sure my current doctor will give me one, so we will see.

I just brought a 3 day Cipro pack. There’s no reason to suffer and MDs are happy to prescribe this for your honeymoon 😉

In addition to a treatment of antibiotics for a UTI, there are smaller dose antibiotics (nitrofurontin or something like that) you can take any time you feel at risk as a preventative measure. Get yourself to a dr. before you go so that you don’t have to deal with any misery on your honeymoon!

Thanks for the advice ladies! I’ll be sure to talk to my doctor and get a prescription before our Honeymoon. I haven’t had a UTI in probably 3 or 4 years but god they’re awful and I’d like to be prepared for worst case scenario 😉

Besides the peeing and the just-in-case meds, I say drink plenty of cranberry juice! When I feel one coming on I flush my system with alternating pure cranberry juice and water and it hasn’t failed me yet. I would think that a few cranberry juice mixed drinks over the honeymoon might help to keep them at bay also. Plus they are super tasty!!
