So I recently had my first run-in with this unpleasant experience. Not looking to have another I've been doing a lot of roaming online and asking a lot of questions of other women that have experienced it. One thing that I've seen online but not known anyone personally that has tried it is this stuff called d-Mannose. I've decided to order some off Amazon to try as a preventative but wanted to know if anyone here has also used it. *It seems generally safe, might cause bloating or constipation, and is a no-no if you have leaky gut.
