prophylactic antibiotics for UTIs

In a non-amusing bit of irony, I woke up in the middle of the night last night with the early stages of a UTI (ironic because just a couple days ago I posted here in VagPag asking about the UTI vaccine). By morning it was already painful and annoying, so I had my fiance take me to the doctor. I got antibiotics and such, and my doctor said that if I get another UTI this year (this is my 4th in the last 12 months) that she will give me antibiotics to take every time I have sex (as my UTIs all seem to be sex-related). Do any of you take antibiotics every time you have sex? Are they working for you? How long have you been on them? She said that I'd be on them for a year to start, and then we'd see from there. I don't really like the idea of constantly being on antibiotics---but I also REALLY don't want another UTI. I'm curious about other women's experiences with this.

Heh, I feel like the official UTI girl of VagPag. ;) Forgive me if these questions have been asked to death. This is my number one problem with my nether regions. It's hard to love your body when it gives you such a painful reason to hate it. Ugh.
