Have you ever experienced a urinary tract infection (UTI)? If the answer is yes, you are not alone. Medical studies show that one in two women experience at least one UTI in her lifetime. Some will repeatedly have them. Men experience the infection too, but in fewer numbers to women.
If you have had the condition, you know that it is very uncomfortable, and an inconvenient irritant. UTIs are caused by bad bacteria or germs in the urinary system. In rare cases, the cause of the infection is viral. Pregnant women experience urinary tract infections as the fetus grows, by putting pressure on the bladder. Additionally, as the urethra widens, and under the influence of the progesterone hormone, the urethra loses some of its tone or strength, increasing the risk of microorganisms getting into the urinary tract. The most common remedy by healthcare practitioners is to prescribe antibiotics.
It is well noted that taking antibiotics can wreak havoc on the good bacteria in your gut. If you are experiencing recurring UTIs, and continuously taking antibiotics, the good bacteria is diminished. That is why it is suggested to take probiotics to replenish healthy flora.
