Just be wary of the UTI being 'cured' - it could be Ecoli - which is rarely cured with one course of antibiotics because it has two types of bacteria. the master ones who hide in a layer of biofilm and reproduce massively when conditions are right, and they are immune to most antibiotics which cannot penetrate the biofilm, and then the regular ecoli cells which are the ones that cause problems multiplying like ad - but which do get killed off by antibiotics making you feel well again for a while at least.

Repeat infections in endo ladies tend to be Ecoli which needs monitoring, so if you have finished the antibiotics and feel a lot better - still take a pee pot to the GP to get it checked for infection - it could still be there only not showing you obvious symptoms, in which case you need more antibiotics. Don't just assume that because you feel better, all teh bactreia are dead.

Endo and Ecoli are best buddies. Ecoli encourages spread of endo, and endo encourages Ecoli.
