What causes UTI?

  • Bacteria from the rectum making their way into the bladder via the urethra – the urethra is shorter in women so it is easier for bacteria to reach the bladder and cause infection than in men.
  • Bacteria can be introduced when the urethra is pushed on during vaginal sex.
  • Structural issues in the kidneys, bladder or tubes.
  • Physical irritation of the urethra by chemicals (eg, soaps, perfumes, vaginal hygiene sprays)
  • Ulcers or inflammation near the urethra.
  • Sexually transmitted infection (STI) (e.g. chlamydia).

How to Prevent UTI?

  • Using Natural UTI treatment like D-Mannose or Cranberry extracts may help prevent recurrent UTI by preventing bacteria sticking to your bladder. Early treatment with these supplemenet, may help clear mild cases of UTI.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Use toilet paper as a blotter after passing urine, rather than wiping.
  • Choose showers instead of baths.
  • Stay away from feminine hygiene sprays and scented bath products — they’ll only increase irritation.
  • Pass urine straight after sex, to flush out any bacteria
  • Use a water-based, rather than oil-based lubricant during sex
