What causes urinary tract infections?

Urinary tract infections commonly happen when bacteria from the large intestine enters the urethra and travels up to the bladder and, if untreated, on to the kidneys.   Sex can also bring bacteria into the urinary tract.  

Avoiding urinary tract infections

  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Cranberry juice may help to prevent infections.
  • Empty your bladder before or after sex.
  • When wiping after a bowel movement, wipe away from your urethra i.e. front to back.
  • Cotton underpants are recommended.
  • Maintain good hygiene.
  • Steer clear of alcohol and caffeinated drinks.
  • Quit smoking.
