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!

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!!
