    I have never had a UTI ever and it’s been over five years since I crossed the first time bridge.

    That’s really untrue information. I’ve been sexually active for 6 years and I’ve never had one. On the other hand, I have friends who have had MANY. It depends on your body, your level of hygiene, and your SO’s level of hygiene. It’s also a good idea to pee before and after sex to clear out the area!

    As long as you pee within 30 min. of sex the chances of getting a UTI go down significantly.  The main reason is from natural bacteria getting up in your urethra and peeing flushes it out.  I read that in a magazine article that a Dr. wrote and heard it from numerous people after I had my first UTI.

    You can also get UTI’s from other things, but mostly from not peeing after sex.

    I had been sexually active for about 8 years before I ever got a UTI. I’ve only ever gotten 2, and both were times I was too  lazy to get up and pee right after. 

    Take some Azo Standard with you just in case. Drink lots of cranberry juice, and make sure you get up and pee (pee hard, too, like turbo pee) immediately after. You shouldn’t have any difficulties.

    I second @Westwood:  pee afterwards. Like immediately afterwards. Kinda ruins the moment a little, but you’ll be happy you did. Also, they sell over the counter cranberry pills that prevent UTIs. You could bring those along and take them daily. They work in my experience.

    OP that is completely false info.  I would reccomend you get your medical information from your doctor or gyno not a wedding forum on the internet.

    Don’t know where you heard that, but it’s not true.  Just pee after sex, it’ll be fine.

    I didn’t get a UTI at all, but many friends did quite often. I would definately suggest peeing before/after as well though.

    I get UTIs like some people get headaches. If I drink too much soda and not enough water….UTI. If I do nit pee IMMEDIATELY after having sex…..UTI. Make sure to pee afterwards and drink lots of water on your trip. If you are really worried you can take cranberry supplements.

    My Darling Husband and I were virgins on our wedding night too. That was almost a year and a half ago and no UTIs here! Just make sure to pee afterwards.

    I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a UTI from sex, though I’ve had a few UTIs in my life.

    Like previous posters emphasize — pee afterwards. Also, drink plenty of water. Take cystex or drink cranberry juice if you’re really worried.

    Yup, it happened to me after my first time and after an especially long dry spell. Maybe talk to your OBGYN and they can prescribe you a prophylactic of sorts

     

    ETA: it IS true for some people. stop giving the OP crap for asking opinions.

     

    and definitely pee!!
