How To Prevent UTI!!!! by Annapecky(f): 6:10pm On Feb 03, 2020
UTI can be very painful and frustrating, especially if they keep coming back. For some women, UTIs relate to changes in their hormonal levels. Some are more likely to get an infection during certain times in their menstrual cycle, such as just before a period or during pregnancy. Estrogen is anti-inflammatory and this hormone is at its lowest during your menstrual bleed, so you can be more susceptible during this time. The key to preventing a UTI is keeping all the bad bacteria out. If you want to end burning frequent urination, and other unpleasant symptoms, start with these changes today.
1. Drink plenty of water, and relieve yourself often. The simplest way to prevent a UTI is to flush bacteria out of the bladder and urinary tract before it can set in. If you’re well-hydrated, it will be tough to go too long without urinating.

2. Wipe from front to back. Bacteria tend to hang around the anus. If you wipe from front to back, especially after a bowel movement, they're less likely to make it to the urethra.

3. Wash up before sex and urinate after it. It's a good idea to avoid perfumed soaps, gels and antiseptics as these can affect the healthy balance of bacteria and pH levels in the vagina and cause irritation. Use plain, unperfumed soaps to wash the area around the vagina gently before sex. This keeps bacteria away from the urethra. And urinating afterward pushes any bacteria that entered the urinary tract back out.

4. Steer clear of irritating feminine products. Skip douches, deodorant sprays, scented powders, and other potentially irritating feminine products. Stay clear from scented dryer sheets.

5. Use tampons instead of sanitary pads and change them every three to four hours. Non scented organic tampons are the SAFEST option.

6. Wear clean cotton underwear that will allow air circulation and discourage the warm, moist environment necessary for bacteria growth.
