The Good, The Bad and the Ugly – What You Really Need to Know About UTIs That Your Doctor, Parent or Friend Won’t Tell You!
Here’s Your Chance to Find Out What UTIs Are Really Like & What You Can Do To Protect Yourself Against Getting One
Painful urination? Discomfort? Hospitalization? What should you expect if, or when, you get a UTI?
Discover what everybody really needs to know about UTIs – the good, the bad and the ugly below. What you learn may surprise you … or scare you … or it might even put your mind at ease.
The first thing you should know if you are concerned about UTIs is that you are not alone. Urinary Tract Infections, or UTIs, is actually a “booming market” these days.
In fact, MarketWatch.com recently reported that UTI treatments are expected to generate $9.89 billion (USD) in revenue by 2023. In other words, a whole lot of people are experiencing UTIs.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately 50% of all women suffer from UTI issues at least once in their lifetime.
Of course, being one of many will probably be little comfort should you get a UTI yourself.
If you are concerned that you may have a UTI or you are worried about getting one, let’s take a look at what you can expect … the good, the bad and the ugly.
• If you are worried about getting a UTI, the one thing you can do to lower your chances is to make sure you pee after sex! Make this a habit. And that means if you run into a celebrity like Rihanna as you walk down the hall to the bathroom and she wants to talk and take a selfie … you should say “Sure, but only after I go to the bathroom!” Peeing is that important to avoiding the horrors of a UTI, which we will talk more about later.
• Despite what you might have heard, UTIs are NOT caused by taking a bath or wearing tight pants. So go ahead and soak in the bubble bath, just be sure to use a mild PH balanced soap to prevent irritation. As for those rump-hugging jeans? Go for it, girl! Go ahead and show off what your momma gave you! Bacteria like warm, wet environments so as long as the wet look doesn’t come back into style you will be fine in those tight (dry) pants.
• Unfortunately, UTI infections can be pretty painful. We’re talking, in particularly bad cases, where it feels like there are razor blades in your urethra when you have to pee. Ouch!
• Other symptoms of a UTI can include cloudy urine and feeling a frequent need to pee but when you do not much comes out.
• No sex! You’ll have to explain to your partner that sex is off the table (and the bed and the chair and the back seat of the car) until your infection is gone. You don’t want the infection to spread into your kidneys and cause even more complications.
• Orange pee! Many over the counter UTI treatments, like Azo tablets, will turn your pee bright orange … orange like orange soda or orange Gatorade. So be prepared for that, it can take some getting used to.
To avoid a UTI and all the accompanying things listed above, there are a few strategies you can utilize.
We mentioned one already – pee as soon as possible after sex. In addition to that, you should:
• Drink a lot of water each day
• Go to the bathroom when you need to, don’t try to hold it in
• Wear cotton underwear
• Eat healthy – that means eat less processed foods and try to cut out caffeine, sugar and alcohol
• Start taking femiNature™, this powerful supplement contains D-Mannose, Cranberry, and prebiotics to flush, cleanse, and restore your bladder health! Taking this supplement will help change the pH level in your urinary tract, which in turn will help stop E. coli bacteria from sticking to bladder walls and urinary tract lining.
