7 Important Facts About Getting A Urinary Tract Infection

Have you ever had a urinary track infection? Do you even know what it is? Let me explain it to you: a urinary tract infection (also known as a UTI) is when your urinary tract gets infected, hence the name. Obvious enough! But what else is going on? The urinary tract is a system of your body that works with other organs to remove liquid waste from your body, AKA your pee. A UTI happens when the tract gets infected with bacteria (which can happen from so many different things), and it’s actually very common: one in five females will get a UTI in her lifetime. If you’ve ever had one or know somebody who has had one you will know that it is not pleasant. The worst part is that some women are just more vulnerable to UTIs and can get them often, even if you take precautions.  It can be scary!

Here is some positive news: UTIs are totally treatable, and can go away quickly if you pay attention and catch them early. Sure, there are some gross things about getting a UTI, but you can’t just ignore this stuff. It’s important to know the details about it so that if you experience the symptoms, you can get checked out ASAP. Obviously, I’m not a doctor, so if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask a medical professional! In the meantime, it’s a good idea to check out these facts about urinary tract infections so that if you ever get one, you can hopefully recognize it and treat it before it gets worse.
