Follow these 12 easy steps to effectively prevent a urinary tract infection!

Infections of the urinary tract are common and can be very unpleasant and painful. Females are 4-times more likely to get a urinary tract infection (UTI). If you think you have a UTI, please consult your doctor for treatment options.

This is how you can effectively prevent a urinary tract infection:

  1. Drink 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day (unless prescribed differently by your doctor in case of heart or kidney disease.)
  2. Protect your body from getting too cold. If your clothes get wet, change them as quickly as possible. Change bathing suits immediately after getting out of the water.
  3. If you have to urinate, don’t wait too long, but rather go to the bathroom as soon as you can. To urinate 5 to 8 times a day is normal.
  4. Don’t engage your abs too much while urinating, but rather try to relax.
  5. Try to eat lots of fruits and veggies in order to promote a healthy stool consistency.
  6. Clean your genital area from front to back after pooping.
  7. As a women, go to clean your genital area no later than 15 minutes after intercourse.
  8. Change your underwear daily. Make sure they are not too tight and cotton.
  9. Don’t overly clean your genital area. Once per day is sufficient. Make sure to only use skin-friendly Liquid soap.
  10. Do not use disinfectant spray or intimate spray in your genital area in order to protect the acid protection film on your skin.
  11. Make sure to change the towel you use to clean your genital area on a daily basis. Please make sure to not use a towel that other people in your family or living conditions have used.
  12. Avoid foam baths or salt baths as they can irritate the urethra.
