Drink more water: For the UTI prevention one should drink a lot of water, urinate before and after intercourse and never wipe stool forward when you wipe after a bm. Also, avoiding panty liners might help with the yeast and the uti. Probiotics, yogurt, and cranberry juice would help in your diet as well as a healthy diet without caffeine and with fruits, veggies, grains and lean protein. Also limit simple sugars.
