    get them a lot more frequently and don't any more, not sure why. You might try d-mannose - it's supposed to be very good for preventing UTIs. Also, avoid sodas and go easy on caffeine.

    People with diabetes get frequent UTI's.

    Have you been tested for diabetes?

    Yes I have been tested and am not diabetic but have a strong family history. Also, I have started taking d=mannose a supplement I bought over the internet. Because I do take Toviaz
    so I am okay now after a second round of antibiotics. I had one in October and then again in Dec. The doc said that I should have been retested after the first round of antibiotics and that maybe it was the same infection not totally gone, so everyone should be retested once they are done with the antibiotics. Hope this answers all of the questions everyone has.
