Prone to UTIs and Yeast Infections

I am a young adult who experiences critic UTIs and Yeast Infections. I pee after sex and shower EVERYTIME any sort of sexual interaction. It’s worse when I use condoms or lube, but I ALWAYS shower and pee after sex so I don’t understand why I keep experiencing UTIs and yeast infections. I went to my gyno and she prescribed me  macro-bid was to take everytime after sex.  I don’t like that I am on a prescription for this and usually avoid taking it until I show symptoms from a UTI. however, my partner and I enjoy relatively rough sex (nothing extreme) and I can feel the micro-tears when I pee after sex but sometimes I’m good for a few tries. It seems that this happens at least once a month and we can’t have sex but maybe once or twice a week. I am incredibly frustrated and feel that I’ve tried everything. Does ANYONE have any supplements or suppositories that they take that prevent chronic UTIs and heat infections? It’s killing my relationship.
