  • UTI associated with sex

    I know that having IC can make a person more prone to UTI's. I am one of these people. My uro even gives me a refillable Rx of Bactrim DS to use when I notice the symptoms of a UTI.

    I remember reading on this board or at a support group meeting, that some people need to take a prophalactic antibiotic after sex. I remember the drug discussed was Bactrim D/S. I am wondering if anyone knows the proper dosage. I can't remember if it was one full tablet or a half of tablet (by tablet I am referring to the 800-160 dose).

    If anyone has had experience with this I'd appreciate it if you would respond to this board.

    Thank you,
