There is a reason why women, after using the comfort room, are encouraged and advised to wipe from front to back. It is because not doing so can cause Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Since the urethra that is the tube transporting urine from the bladder to the outside is near the anus, bacteria coming from the large intestine can escape and invade the urethra. Bacteria like E. coli are in the perfect place to leave the anus, enter the urethra, and travel up to the bladder. They will continue infecting the kidneys if the one does not treat the infection.
Women are more prone to acquiring UTI since they have shorter urethras. That allows bacteria to have easy and fast access to the bladder. In addition, having sexual intercourse can let bacteria invade the urinary tract.
UTI is something that people should not take for granted.
Another helpful tip is to include ½ teaspoon of baking soda into a cup of water. Since the baking soda can neutralize acid in the urine, it can reduce the pain during urination. However, too much baking soda in one’s water can disturb the flora balance in the intestine.
If one wishes to maintain being safe and avoid Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), one may consider taking in foods or products containing Forskolin. Forskolin supplements contain extracts from the root of a plant named Coleus forskohlii, and are known to be helpful in treating UTI as well as other allergies and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
Protect oneself from UTI. Urinate with ease and without pain!
