Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are quite common and can effect different parts of the urinary tract such as the bladder, kidney, and urethra. Normally, these infections can be eliminated with antibiotics, but what if you have recurring UTIs?

Statistically, more than half of all women will suffer from a UTI at least once in their lifetime. One of the main reasons for recurring UTIs is growing antibacterial resistance, which is a growing issue globally.

Usually, all bacteria are eliminated through a course of antibiotics, but when certain bacteria become resistant to antibiotitcs, UTIs can lie dormant after a course of treatment only to return later.

Experiencing more than one UTI in a single year is cause for concern, and should be treated by a doctor, but most UTIs can be avoided by maintaining healthy practices like sufficient hydration.
