Here are some ...: Your such degree and manner of concern on contracting UTI & yeast infection is over board & excessive. For average healthy persons, they can win the invisible war with coexisting bacteria, yeast, virus, etc. in respiratory, GI-, & genital tracts with personal natural barriers - skin & mucosa, and humoral immune defense ability. So, I would not worry about it. More? See & ask Doc timely.
