I've been getting UTIs regularly since 2009 with an 18 month break in the middle after I started being really vigilant about peeing before/after sex. Now I've had three in the last five months despite my consistency of peeing, and keeping hydrated and I'm curious- might condoms have anything to do with aggravating UTIs? For me condoms dry me out like crazy, they're "lube-y" for like 30 seconds and then they're not and there is usually some moments of friction before I say "hey let's get the lube" or "let's take this off". Would the friction from the condoms OR even the lube itself be a culprit? Does anyone have any experience with this?
