Hydrate, pee, repeat

The first line of defense against bacteria entering the urinary tract and causing a UTI is physically flushing them out via urination. The more water you drink, the more you urinate. Thus, if you feel a UTI coming on or feel de-hydrated, consider that your body's sign to drink more water.

Practice urinary tract "self care"

Certain activities, including sex and your period, can increase your risk of getting a UTI. The vaginal ecosystem is very sensitive so anytime the pH balance changes (ie. during menopause and your period) or there is increased risk of bacteria being introduced to the urethra (ie. during sex, exercise or travel) you are at higher risk. If you tend to get UTIs easily, you should incorporate the Vaginal "self care" tips below to ensure maximum protection.

These simple habits will help ensure you are taking care of yourself down there:

  • Drink EVEN MORE water
  • Do not hold it- pee as soon as you feel the urge
  • Pee immediately after sex
  • Wear breathable clothes when you exercise and travel and change your underwear as soon as you can after completing the activity
  • Don't remain in a wet swimsuit for an extended period of time

Know your triggers

If you think you have a UTI, you should see a doctor for a urine culture and likely, an antibiotic prescription. As of now, antibiotics are the only known effective treatment for UTIs. Rising concerns over antibiotic resistance will hopefully lead to innovations in UTI treatment in the future.

Our UTI Emergency Kit can help relieve pain and control the infection while you await your doctor's appointment and is a great product to keep on hand for future emergencies.

About our proactive urinary tract products

If you've had 2 or more UTIs in the last 6 months, or 3 or more in the last year, that's defined as a chronic UTI. Also called recurring UTIs or rUTI, these infections are caused by bacterial populations in the bladder that are protected by biofilm and therefore, cannot be affected by antibiotics. In order to appropriately address chronic UTIs one must prioritize the health of the vaginal microbiome.
