Frequently Asked Questions

How can UTI's be prevented?

“Staying well hydrated is probably the best way to prevent UTI’s. Front to back personal cleansing for women and urinating after intimate activity can also reduce infections.” - Dr. Michael Gray

”For women, urinate after sex every time, even if it is only a few drops and always drink a glass of water. In general, hydrating well will help with prevention the most. If you work a job where you are on your feet and don’t get much time for breaks, you have to find time to hydrate and to urinate. Don’t fight your urge to pee – it’s a set up to get a UTI.” - Dr. Antoinette Eng.
