Avoiding and Managing Urinary Tract Infections In Women

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary Tract Infections

Getting hit with a urinary tract infection (UTI) is something that happens to millions of women. These are painful, irritating infections that can leave you feeling uncomfortable throughout the day. Once you’ve had one UTI, you’re at risk of getting a second one.

Once you take an antibiotic for a UTI, you can get what’s called a rebound infection. Some urinary tract infections will require multiple treatments to completely kill the bacteria, so you can see why it’s important to avoid these infections altogether.

Causes of Urinary Tract Infections

The causes of a UTI are multiple. You can get them from some medication side effects, so always read your pharmacy insert when getting prescriptions. You’re at high risk for getting a UTI if you have diabetes or if you’re pregnant.

Contraceptives can cause you to have a UTI as can too much sex. E.coli from the bowel can cause a UTI to develop and you can also get a UTI infection from E.coli found in pools or water parks.

UTI Symptoms

The symptoms of a UTI are feeling like you didn’t get finished urinating even after you just went to the bathroom. You might feel a burning sensation while you’re urinating. Sometimes it will also feel like you need to go to the bathroom more often than normal.

You might notice pain below your navel and will have a general sense of not feeling well. You may also notice an odor when you urinate. Because managing a UTI is done through antibiotics, as soon as you notice something isn’t right, call your doctor or schedule a visit.

Managing a Urinary Tract Infection

Drink a lot of fluids, especially water – and go to the bathroom as soon as you start to feel the urge. Waiting to go gives the bacteria that causes the UTI time to multiply.

Make sure that the underwear you use doesn’t have a silky or nylon crotch. Use only cotton underwear during a UTI and don’t wear snug clothes that can promote bacteria growth.

Watch your sugar intake when you have a UTI. Check your bathroom habits to make sure that you’re not accidentally wiping bowel bacteria in a way that can lead to a UTI.

Sitting in a bath can also allow bacterial infections, so if you’re prone to urinary tract infections, consider giving up the baths and showering instead.

You can help avoid urinary tract infections by drinking plenty of natural cranberry juice and eating foods that are high in antioxidants.

Make sure that your vitamin levels are where they should be and take a multivitamin to ensure you’re getting the minerals you need to fight back against infections.

 

3 Simple Home Remedies To TREAT URINARY TRACT INFECTION (UTI) In Women

How to treat URINE INFECTION IN WOMEN naturally? LEARN easy home remedies for curing Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).

Urine infections in women is a common problem. When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a bladder infection (cystitis) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as kidney infection (pyelonephritis) . The urinary tract consists of kidneys, ureters- connecting kidneys with the bladder, bladder and the urethra. An infection of any of these parts is called a urinary tract infection(UTI) and can be caused by bacteria, fungi or viruses. As stated earlier urinary tract infection(UTI) in women is quite common the urethra in women is much shorter than in men. Both men and women gets urinary tract infections(UTI) and occasionally it's severe with men.

Causes of urinary tract infection(UTI Infection):

Urinary infections can happen due to blockages which make it difficult to empty the bladder. It could be due to kidney stones, enlarged prostate gland or cancers. Improper personal hygiene and bathroom hygiene can lead to UTIs. Use of spermicides or condoms can also lead to irritation of the skin and can increase the risk of a UTI. Use of diaphragms can decrease emptying of bladder and lead to an urinary tract infection. Diabetics have an increased risk of contracting urinary tract infections.

Urinary infections are the main reason why women should wipe from front to back after using the bathroom. The reason behind this is that the urethra is located close to the anus and bacteria such as E.coli, which is present in the large intestine, can escape from the anus and enter the urethra. From here, they can reach the bladder, causing bladder infection. The infection should be treated as soon as possible otherwise there is a possibility of the kidneys getting infected. Post menopause, there are changes in the normal bacteria which reside in the vagina. This can increase the incidence chances of urinary tract infections(UTIs). UTIs can also happen due to use of a catheter (a tube inserted into the bladder to allow draining urine into a bag when someone cannot urinate normally) which makes it easy for bacteria to enter the bladder.

If it’s a hot summer day, pop it in the fridge for refreshing parsley “iced tea.” This is a useful urine infection home remedy.
