Certain factors like changes in hormones, poor hygiene, or pregnancy may impact the health of your vagina and lead to an itch or smell that can be confused with a UTI.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common. The most common bacterial infection in women, UTIs occur much more often in women than men. Unfortunately, over half of adult women have had at least one UTI in their life, with 20 to 30 percent experiencing recurrent UTIs.
There has always been a lot of controversy surrounding whether or not probiotics can be used for the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infections. Recent research has shown that probiotics can be used to replenish naturally occurring “good” bacteria, which helps combat UTIs. Probiotics are generally considered beneficial to one’s health and can aid the digestive system and other parts of the body.
Among all the myths and controversies about how we can prevent and treat UTIs, there is a debate on whether or not cranberry juice can help or prevent UTIs. For most recurrent UTIs, the most common treatment is antibiotics, but this poses a risk for the emergence of bacterial resistance.
Antibiotics are the safest and most efficient UTI treatment option. For a simple infection, the treatments commonly recommended are trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim, Septra), nitrofurantoin (Macrodantin, Macrobid), cephalosporins (Omnicef, Keflex), or fluoroquinolones (Cipro, Levaquin).
UTI’s are common and usually are easily treated with the appropriate antibiotics if diagnosed early. Bacteria around the anal or genital areas can travel to the bladder and cause an uncomfortable infection and UTI symptoms. Anything that brings bacteria in contact with your urethra can cause a UTI and subsequent discomfort.
