See answer: If the recurrent cystitis follow intercourse taking an antibiotic after sex +/- continuous low dose antibiotic or antibiotic several times weekly have been effective in preventing reoccurrence. Use of a spermicide with a diaphragm or a spermicide coated condom increases frequency of recurrent UTI's See: http://bit.ly/1XW0O5s

Recurrent UTI: In case of recurrent urine infection urine testing to confirm the cause of infection and know sensitivity of the bug is important. If laboratory testing of urine confirms bug every time symptoms arise and its happening often then prophylactic antibiotics can be an option. Please discuss with your physician .
