I seem to get about one UTI a year and had one in May right before my quarterly appointment with my rhuemy. She said it's very common with autoimmune diseases and obviously, it's because our immune system is compromised so we are more prone to getting other infections. I told her I would rather give birth again that have the UTI's. I've learned to catch them as quickly as I can, drink lots of water to flush out toxins and drink cranberry juice a couple of times a week at least to try and prevent them. Hope you get it under control soon.
