In brief: Azo won't prevent

a yeast infection, altho oral probiotics MAY lessen the chance of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
Bacteria from the digestive tract are the most common cause of UTI's. If diarrhea facilitates the introduction of bacteria into the urinary tract, preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea could theoretically help prevent UTIs. Dr. Anne
