I treat a lot of UTIs. UTIs are urinary tract infections. The urinary tract is made up of the kidneys (makes urine), ureters (transfers urine to the bladder), bladder (stores urine), urethra (the hole where your urine comes out). It causes burning, pain, and trouble urinating. If the infection gets to your kidneys, it can make you really sick – vomiting, fever, severe pain, you name it. Close to 3% of women will get an UTI every year, and the majority will have one in their lifetime. So, it is not surprising that women will apparently do, try, and avoid ANYTHING to prevent a UTI.
