You need to be proactive and really talk honestly with your healthcare provider that you’re dealing with because some people don’t like to talk about it. Try to be proactive and don’t be afraid to try something new.
As part of our True Customer Stories series, we bring you the full scoop from our customers—all about their history with UTIs, everything they've tried to prevent UTIs before Uqora, whether UTIs run in their family, and more.
We chatted with Uqora customer Lynn S (64 years old, pictured below 2nd from the right). Thanks so much for sharing, Lynn!
Where do you live?
What do you like most about Albia, IA?
Ann: I like it in the country. I grew up in town but I love living in the country, now. My family is all around here too, my children are here, so I love that.
When did you first getting UTIs? How old were you?
Ann: Probably when I was 19 or 20. I’ve had them for a long time now, 44 years nows, forever. I’ve tried lots of procedures and had all kinds of medicine, I know what I need to do in the bathroom.
What’s the weirdest or most extreme thing you’ve tried for UTI prevention?
Ann: I did get my bladder painted with silver nitrate, enlarge it. Supposedly you would only have to do that once. Well, it didn’t work. I drank cranberry juice, which is not a good fix because it doesn’t cure anything. And the same with the products that you buy that have cranberry in them, they help mask the symptoms but you’ve still got the infection. I did hear about some essential oils that were supposed to work but didn’t actually try them.
What’s your message to the other ladies out there who are struggling with UTIs?
Ann: You need to be proactive and really talk honestly with your healthcare provider that you’re dealing with because some people don’t like to talk about it. Try to be proactive and don’t be afraid to try something new. Like I said, I didn’t just pull your name off the internet, my doctor had samples. So that gave me some credibility coming from your doctor.
How did you find Uqora?
Ann: My doctor is the one who had received some samples in the mail for Uqora. He gave me a sample. I tried it a day or two but didn’t know if it was enough to tell. So I subscribed right away and started using the product. It’s been since like late April, and I haven’t had a UTI. I do a lot of aerobic dancing and stuff, and my UTIs have definitely gotten worse, and I’ve even had a case of Merca. So I'm really glad I heard about your product in April.
When do you drink Uqora?
Ann: I drink Uqora at least once a day.
