*growling sound* Everything annoying at once...is it just me? LOL I just got over a stomach big, and my endo pain has been a bitch lately, and now I'm getting a bladder infection. That's actually what this thread is about...a (male) doctor I had years and years ago told me that getting bladder infections was a "girl thing" because of the tight pants girls wear and that we don't drink enough water. Is there any truth to this? I try to drink a lot of water, and cranberry juice...but they just happen anyway. So, the question of the day is: how do YOU prevent bladder infections? Who's got snazzy home-based ideas for the prevention of bladder infections? Cos now I have to go to the doctor, tomorrow - in 6 inches of snow (or more, cos it's still comin') and get a prescription....and the meds always hurt my tummy. My mom is totally prone to them, it seems, no matter what she does in her lifestyle to prevent them...could it be an inherited problem??
