Ever since I had started being sexually active last year, I have been getting frequent UTIs. I had been having a UTI for a long while. I got it checked last week, and I was prescribed Sofilex for five days. The UTI got better, and everything was fine for about a week, and today it started to hurt again. I am peeing frequently, and I feel pain in my lower area. Last night, I was feeling quite sick. I had a headache, nausea, and pain. I was not sure if this was because of the UTI starting up. But, this morning it had definitely started.
I am still sexually active, and I know that sex can trigger infections. So, I clean up thoroughly after sex, as advised by my previous doctors, and according to what I have read about its prevention. I make sure it does not get too rough or unlubricated. I just want to know why the UTI keeps occurring and what I should do differently, to stop it once and for all. Is there a different type of medication I should take? I read online that there is a type of medication to take after sex. Is this going to be helpful? If it is possible, may I get a suggestion for which medication to take? What to do next, to make the UTI stop from recurring? Are there any medications or lifestyle changes to me made? I hope to hear from you soon.

As you have already mentioned, sexual activity is a risk factor for UTI.
A urine analysis report done during the UTI (urinary tract infection) episode, will give us a better picture of the number of pus cells. I request you to share two such reports of tests done during two different episodes.
Due to the short length of the urethra, the bacteria of the perineum are inevitably introduced into the bladder. But, these bacteria should not be allowed sufficient time in the bladder to grow.
Some females are more prone to UTI compared to others due to a different antigen expression on the bladder mucosa. I recommend the following measures for you:
