i am not sure if it has anything to do with my having UTIs madalas (most often than not asymptomatic), pero yung water sa rented house namin before is hard water. we drink purified water ha, pero i always wash after peeing using tabo. napansin ko, nung lumipat na kami ng house (hindi na hard water), nagpa-install kami ng handheld bidet, hindi na ako nagkaka UTI.
as far as i know about UTIs dapat drink lots of water, wag pigilan ang pee, pee after intercourse!, ang pantyliner is NOT for everyday use, wipe genital area front to back. akala ko nga may proteinuria ako nun kasi laging akong merong UTI pero wala naman. siguro just like any other sakit, lifestyle change lang ang kailangan.
