recurrent uti?

ive had recurrent uti's related to sex for about 3 years now. I usually take the proper precautions and pee after sex but recently my uti's have gotten to the point where i feel like i have to constantly empty my bladder so i just sit on a towel and let it out whenever that sensation comes. I took a 3 day course of antibiotics a few weeks ago and it seemed to get rid of it but a few days again i had sex and my symptoms came back then went away then i had sex again and the symptoms are back (frequent urination, burning at the end of peeing, clear gooey discharge). do i need to go back to the doctor? is there something i can do to prevent myself from getting them after intercourse?

These symptoms can be due to honeymoon cystitis. It is actually a form of urethritis.Abstain from intercourse for a few days,take plenty of fluids and take some OTC analgesics like ibuprofen or diclofenac.Also take pyridium for 2-3 days(it stains the urine orange) and sit in warm non soapy water.Also consult a doctor for antibiotics prescription if the symptoms persist.In future also,urinate immediately after intercourse to flush out the bacteria and ask your partner to indulge in plenty of foreplay or use lubricant jellies.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
