Drinking plenty of fluids, urinating at bedtime and after sexual intercourse, not holding urine for an excessive amount of time, and good hygiene can decrease the chances of developing a urinary tract infection. Of note, these are only helpful hints as they will not guarantee prevention. Avoid any irritating product on the outside of your genitals if you are experiencing dysuria.
Most urinary tract infections will improve with appropriate antibiotics and should have no long-term consequences.
