UTI: A Guide For Women

Women have more trouble with UTIs - as urinary tract infections are often called - than men. Women tend to get urinary tract infections more often than men because bacteria can reach the bladder more easily in women. If you want to prevent, stop, or treat any urinary tract infection you may have, here are some suggestions:

1. Watch
out for symptoms.

Some of the most common symptoms include a strong, persistent urge to urinate, blood in the urine, cloudy, strong-smelling urine, and a burning sensation. Presence of bacteria in your urine is also an indication of an ongoing infection.

2. Go on antibiotics.


If you are in good health, antibiotics are enough to fight off urinary tract infections. Follow your doctor's orders regarding your prescription. Going overboard with antibiotics can lead you to develop a resistance to it. This can give you trouble if you need antibiotics in the future.

3. Make home remedies work for you.


Drinking plenty of water can help relieve the incontinence the infection causes. Water also helps to dilute your urine and helps flush out bacteria. Coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks can irritate your bladder and tend to aggravate your frequent or urgent need to urinate.
