I recently broke up with my last boyfriend of a year. We would have sex every day we were together, Which was almost every day. At some point sex just completley started getting unenjoyable when after every time I would feel like I was getting a UTI. As soon as he would finish and pull out I immidiatly felt like I would have to pee, and would also get a burning sensation. (added on, even next time we would have sex, it immidiatly hurt when he would try to put it in) I've been to the doctors many times. I've had bacterial vaginosis about 3 times. & UTI's more than I can count. The doctor would just perscribe antibiotics to get rid of it, and they would work until the next time I had sex. A urologist had told me that it might be a good idea to widen my urethra, although this doesn't sound like something pleasent that I want to happen, especially if it's unnecissary.

At this point I begin to think it is just my boyfriend who is dirty. I've been tested for all the diseases and I have no STDs or STIs. I told my boyfriend to start washing his hands, and taking a shower before we had sex. He couldn't respect that that is what he needed to do for me to not hurt anymore, if this was even the problem.
We've been broken up for about a month. And I've finally been feeling myself when it comes to my vagina.
Although, now I'm seeing someone new. We've only had sex twice, and the second time the same thing started happening again. Immidiatly after it felt like I was getting a UTI and it was the familiar pain I dreaded feeling.

I have no problem telling this new guy that if he wants to have sex, that he needs to take a shower first. But is this really the problem?
I just want to know how to prevent this from happening.
UTI's are very painful and I would rather not have sex the rest of my life if it's going to happen every time.


Also: I have a healthy diet. I do take cranberry pills. I also take probiotic smoothies that are supposed to help with the bacterial balance. I don't use soap when I wash down there, I use a specific wash for it. I wear only cotton underwear and always pee after sex, as well as using a wet cloth to clean it if a shower is not available. I'm almost 100 % convinced that it's not me, but that it's the guy who keeps causing this to happen.
Any body have any idea what it really is?
Or any extra tips on how to prevent this from happening?
