Do’s and don’ts to prevent Urinary Tract Infection

  • Drain out your bladder as often as you sense the need to. Do not hold on to it. Frequent urination helps to clear the bacteria.
  • Always dispose and change soiled tampons at frequent intervals to avoid bacterial growth.
  • Prefer wearing cotton fibre undergarments, so that your skin near the bladder can breathe well and bacterial growth is inhibited.
  • Take extra Vitamin C in your routine diet to inhibit bacterial development, since it is an excellent ingredient that acidifies the urine. Also drinking cranberry juice gives positive results.
  • Public women urination is a worrisome prospect; it is very common to develop UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) from contaminated public toilets. However, you can avoid it easily, thanks to the female urination device called Peebuddy- a disposable female urination device that enables women to pee while standing. It helps you to avoid UTI as you no more need to sit on the toilet seat to pee, you can just pee while standing up.
  • Always wipe down from front to back.
  • Drink plenty of water to wash out any bacteria from your urinary tract.
  • Avoid constipation as it can increase the probability of developing a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection).
  • Prefer a shower instead of a bath tub soak or bath.
  • Totally avoid women sanitation sprays, perfumed douches and synthetic based aromatic bath products which will only aggravate the condition.
  • Rinse out your private parts before getting into the sexual act. And also ensure your bladder is emptied after the act.
