"Morning shenanigans are good, and make my current level of exhaustion extremely worth it."

I have been trying to figure out how to start this blog entry, wavering between, "OH MY GOD IT'S BURNING!" and, "Few things in life are as unpleasant as a urinary tract infection." And while some of you may cringe in sympathy or perhaps cringe I am revealing too much, all I say is just you wait . . . JUST YOU WAIT! YOUR TIME WILL COME!

Christ, it's very unpleasant and keeping me from blogging about more enjoying activities such as inviting Ms. K over to my bed again and only getting three hours sleep.

Two words, sweetie - cranberry juice!

In the spirit of TMI, may I also note that UTIs frequently occur after you've broken a sexual dry spell. You can help stop recurrent UTIs by making sure to pee after EVERY "encounter".

Too late for the cranberry juice. It's now time for antibiotics.
You can interrupt the post-coitus cuddling to go pee, but considering the #1 cause of UTI's are wiping the wrong way, I would suggest enjoy the cuddling and pay more attention to the wiping. LoL

This may be the best comment thread I've ever witnessed.

I'm wondering if my blog might have jumped the shark with such comments as, ". . .the #1 cause of UTI's are wiping the wrong way. . ."

Ro said...

Hey, don't kill the messenger. You brought it up!

Besides, it's a fact. And, you know you're paying more attention now.
So there.

Either my girlfriend or I (or both) got a UTI every time we had sex for the first year and a half of our relationship. I've learned these tips: 1. Make sure you and your girl have scrupulously clean hands - maybe even keep a bottle of sanitizer by the bed. 2. Use plenty of lube. Friction = agitation = greater susceptibility (sp?) to infection. 3. Urinate afterward (you can cuddle as much as you want, just make sure you pee before you pass out.)

I had a UTI earlier this year (my 2nd in recent memory) and I'm not having sex (sadly). My prescription: Get your doctor to give you Cipro, stat! Screw aspirin; this is the wonder drug. Also, lots of water.

I'm not going to say anything about not ever having a UTI because I don't want to jinx myself. But at least I know if I get one, I'll have a fabulous blog entry.

I don't think it's jumped the shark...but is it all too much information? About your sex life, not the helpful remedies :)

I agree with tec, PLENTY of lub!

...and re your cat's pee(?), sure it isn't someone's ejaculation?!

OK - now that could be too much information :) Don't answer that!

Wow there are a lot of susceptible urinary tracts reading this blog.

I think UTIs are incredibly painful. The rule is pee before and after sex so it helps to flush out bacteria preventing the bacteria from going up through your urethra and infecting your urinary system. Definitely see a doctor and make sure she prescribes you antibiotics.
