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
