I seem to get a urinary infection round my period.. though I use tampons as directed. Change every 3 hours or so.. and I use the correct size according to flow. I always make sure to change very regularly? anything else that could maybe causing it?
If you are prone to UTI's which I am, it could definitely cause a UTI. Basically the bacteria rests close to your urethra (opening where you pee) and that type of bacteria tends to climb up the urethra and cause infections. What I do is: I started drinking 1 tall glass of 100% d-mannose a day and I have not had one in about 2 years. Good Luck and God Bless.
