The infections are caused by microbes such as bacteria, fungi and in very rare cases virus.

Symptoms Of Urinary Tract Infection.

The symptoms of UTI will depend on the tract that is infected. Just as earlier stated the urinary system is divided into two parts, so the symptoms that will be experienced will depend if the infection is in the upper urinary tract or lower urinary tract.

Let’s look at the symptoms associated with the different urinary tracts.

The infection will affect any of the bladder or the Urethra or both. The symptoms that may be experienced are.

  1. Burning sensation during urination.

  5. Urine that comes out cloudy or foamy.

The difference in symptoms that men experience in the lower urinal tract and the symptoms that women experience is that women experience pelvic pain while the men experience rectal pain.

However, here are symptoms to look out for

Preventing Urinary tract infection is very important than seeking a cure. The discomfort can be hellish.

Here are a few ways to prevent urinary tract infection.

How To Prevent UTI.

  1. Ensure you drink water frequently, don’t wait until you are thirsty before you take a glass of water. A glass of water is a shot away from kidney stones.
  2. Ensure you maintain good hygiene. As a woman, you don’t have to use public convenience and if it is a must you kindly ensure it is safe to use.
  3. Take a pee whenever there is a need to. Do not hold back until you get home.
  4. Wipe from front to back when you wipe after easing yourself.
  5. Urinate after sex. The earlier you empty your bladder the better.
  6. Avoid wearing tight jeans and trousers.
  7. Do not use underwears made from nylon and other synthetic materials. Wear underwears made from cotton.
  8. Ensure the genital area is always clean.
  9. Avoid the use of perfumes around the genital area.
  10. Avoid the use of condoms that are lubricated with spermicides
  11. Minimise or avoid the consumption of alcohol as it irritates the bladder.

Women are more prone to urinary tract infection than men. The reason is that women have a shorter urethra than men. Bacteria from the anus is easily transmitted into the urinary tract through sex or wipes.

That is why it advised wiping from front to back.
