That burning sensation: How to prevent UTIs



Some of us know that feeling all too well: you feel like you need to pee all the time, it burns like a futhermucker when you do, and your pee is looking a little funky. Yup, ladies, you got yourself a urinary tract infection, or UTI for short.

Other than giving your regular doc or lady parts doc a call so you can treat it, you also want to NEVER have to have one again, right? I mean, they are terrible.

Here are some tips for you:
1) Drink plenty of water. Keep your self hydrated and pee often.
2) Pee after sex. Like as soon as you can. Peeing flushes out the nether bacteria that you can get from well, each other's nethers.
3)Wipe front to back. Yes, ladies, you've heard it often, you'll hear it again. Front to back. Not the other way around.
4) Cranberry juice or pills are your friend. I recommend keeping cranberry pills by your bed, so you can easily take one after some nether rubbing. Cranberries keep your urine acidic which makes it unfriendly to bacteria.

Happy urinary tracts make for happy ladies!

  3. No hazards in drinking bottled water. As some states fluoridates their water to add that extra something for oral health, make sure you give your teeth an super good brush. Drink up!
