UTI: Urinary Tract Infection

A bladder infection is a bacterial infection within the bladder. Some people call a bladder infection a urinary tract infection (UTI). This refers to a bacterial infection anywhere in the urinary tract, such as the bladder, kidneys, ureters, or the urethra. While most cases of bladder infection occur suddenly (acute), others may recur over the long term (chronic). Early treatment is key to preventing the spread of the infection. What cause it to flare up is Bacteria that enter through the urethra and travel into the bladder cause bladder infections. Normally, the body removes the bacteria by flushing them out during urination.  Woman are more Prone to it than men are, but men can still get a UTI. This is because women have shorter urethras, making the path to the bladder easier for bacteria to reach. Females’ urethras are also located closer to the rectum than men’s urethras. This means there is a shorter distance for bacteria to travel. Click here to read more if you're interested most of what you have read had came from this site.
OK so on ward.... I have health issues that I won't get into...but I am more prone to getting these UTI than the average female will get, but I am here to tell you how to prevent or if you do have it, this will help you with what you're going through...

Drink lots of fluids.

Make sure you drink lots of fluids, and no pop or any sugary drinks since the sugar will irritate it more. When you're drinking Cranberry Juice make sure it's 100% Juice. and have about 10-16 grams of juice. If you have Cranberry pills you will need about 800 - 1,600 milagrams (make sure you follow the instructions on the bottle) if you have any antibiotics than use that as well.. sex tip: urinate before and after sexual activity

Go to the bathroom

Make sure you go to the bathroom as much as possible because you're getting rid of the Bacteria as you urine. When you're finished make sure you wipe the front to back not back to front. if you do it that way it will irritate it even more. and change your underwear daily!!

Taking Showers/Baths

Take a shower than a bath

When will they go away?

sadly they dont go away in a day or two, it is a process to get rid of. if you still hasn't gone away in a week and you haven't seen a doctor yet? I would recommend going to see your doctor as soon as possible

Will it come back?

unfortunately yes, but if you follow these simple steps or on that website I listed you should be fine Thank you so much for reading and I hope this will help.
