mbn1454 - I am a 25 yo female, I too get recurring UTI's and yeast infections.  Whether or not you use protection - your gf should always pee after sex, immediately.  In my experience there is no way to figure out exactly how UTI's are caused (yeast infections are caused when there is an imbalance of yeast and good bacteria in the vagina).  My mother gets recurring UTI's as well - it may be genetic.  Your gf should NOT ******, that disrupts the balance of yeast and bacteria and can cause infections, try using hypo-allergenic soap as well as laundry detergent.  Also, make sure she wears panties with a cotton crotch in them.  Above all, see a doctor.  And yes, it is possible for a male to get these infections.  Believe me, if you had them, you would know.  Oh, one last thing - I've noticed a connection between certain things I consume and yeast infections.  I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or not...  Hope this helps!

Ugh I hate the filter here - the ****** is douching (apparently, the noun is a bad word, but the verb is fine lol).
