  • Drink 2-3 litres (4-6 pints) of fluids each day. Drink even more in hot weather.
  • Empty your bladder frequently and completely.
  • Be careful about hygiene. After a bowel movement, wipe yourself from front to back to prevent bacteria around the anus from entering the urethra.
  • Wash your genital area before sexual intercourse. Make sure your partner washes, too.
