Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

I hope you have been advised the right antibiotics for your urinary tract infection (UTI). But I am sure your doctor has that covered. The next thing we need to concentrate on is the technique used in the toilet.

When you visit the loo, after either urinating or passing your bowel, I would advice you to take extra care while cleaning your privates. There are friendly bacteria present in your bowels, which when taken elsewhere can result in infections, and vice versa. Thus, you will need to clean your privates with extra care. Make sure you do not clean from behind to front especially, as this can result in infections and vice versa (especially in your case).

Continue with the antibiotics, as this will greatly help in controlling the infection. Drink plenty of water, and take extra care when it comes ti hygiene and the above mentioned technique.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.

Hi, Thanks, Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are infections of the urethra, bladder, ureters, or the kidneys, which comprise the urinary tract.
E. coli bacteria cause the majority of UTIs, but many other bacteria, fungi, and parasites may also cause UTIs.
Females have a higher risk for UTIs than most males, probably because of their anatomy; other risk factors for UTIs include any condition that may impede urine flow (e.g., enlarged prostate, congenital urinary tract abnormalities, and inflammation). Patients with catheters or those who undergo urinary surgery and men with enlarged prostates are at higher risk for UTIs.
Symptoms and signs of UTI vary somewhat depending on sex, age, and the area of the urinary tract that is infected; some unique symptoms develop depending on the infecting agent.
UTIs are diagnosed usually by isolating and identifying the urinary pathogen from the patient; there are some home tests available for presumptive diagnosis.
There are home remedies for UTI, but most may, at best, help reduce the risk or discomfort of UTIs. They are not considered cures for the disease.
There can be many complications of urinary tract infections, including dehydration, sepsis, kidney failure, and death.
If treated early and adequately, the prognosis is good for most patients with a UTI.
Regards, Dr.Sharmila
