Be in the know while you're on the go.
UTIs are yet another consequence of sex women often have to think about more than men. Here's what you should know.
If you were a woman and you were even somewhat susceptible to urinary tract infections (UTIs) — which, thanks to some pretty glaring design flaws in female anatomy, you probably would be — there’s a good chance you’d spend a decent portion of almost every sexual encounter thinking about UTIs and how to prevent them.
Antibiotics are commonly used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs), and they can be very effective. But sometimes, these antibiotics fail — and there are several reasons why it might be happening.
You may notice that your UTI‘s symptoms aren’t going away after antibiotic treatment. In some cases, they might be getting worse.
A urinary tract infection (UTI) can affect any part of the urinary system, including the kidneys.
When a person refers to a UTI, they are usually talking about a bladder infection or a lower UTI. Bladder infections are the most common type of UTI.
Both urinary tract infections (UTIs) and vaginal yeast infections are so common among women that getting your first one is almost a rite of passage. At some point in their lives, more than half of women in the United States will experience a UTI, and around 75 percent will have a vaginal yeast infection, according to the U.S. Office on Women’s Health.
