No, UTI or Urinary Tract Infection doesn’t only affect women! People of all ages and sex can develop UTI – whether it is men, women or children. However, women are at a higher risk of UTI than men.

But first what UTI is?

UTI is an infection that can affect any part of your urinary system including your kidneys, urethra, and bladder. It is caused by microbes such as bacterial conquering the body’s defenses in your urinary tract. Symptoms of UTI are dependent on age, gender, and which part of the urinary is infected. Well, smoky, cloudy, bloody or strong-smelling urine are the symptoms of urinary tract infection.

Diabetes, bowel incontinence, kidney stones, pregnancy, menopause, and poor personal hygiene are the risk factors that increase the possibility of developing a UTI. Plus, sexual intercourse is one of the common UTI triggers, especially if you do with multiple partners.

Why women are at a higher risk of Urinary Tract Infection?        

Possibility of developing Urinary Tract Infection is more common in women as women have fairly short and straight urethra that makes it easier for bacteria to travel into their bladder. Well, 75% to 90% of bladder infections develop due to sexual activity. So, this infection is more common in young sexually active women and commonly seen in newly-married women. Changes in hormone levels during a woman’s menstrual cycle can also cause UTI.

Urinary Tract Infection is more common in pregnant women because of changes in their urinary tract. During pregnancy, the bladder widens, so, urine does not exhaust quickly, causing an infection- Kidney infection. Kidney infection during pregnancy may increase the complications by leading to premature birth. Therefore, it is important to have this infection treated promptly and properly.

Prevention of UTI in women

When it comes to treating the risks of UTI, remedies of homeopathy for urinary tract infection play a vital role. Although there are several natural ways and medications available in the market to treat this infection, homeopathic treatment is safe, highly effective, and can help eliminate the risks of recurrence.
