I often get a UTI. What can I do to prevent them? Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are bacterial infections of any part of the urinary tract. There are several things you can do to try to prevent a UTI, including wiping from front to back when you go to the toilet, fully emptying your bladder, drinking plenty of fluids and peeing after sex. Other natural remedies you can try include taking cranberry juice or tablets or a friendly bacteria supplement containing Lactobacillus. Lactobacillus organisms are predominate in the vagina of healthy women and may prevent the adherence, growth and
colonisation of pathogenic bacteria in the urinary tract. Probio7 Intiflor, £29.99 from WWW.PROBIO7.COM, is a friendly bacteria supplement that contains two strains of clinically studied Lactobacillus, cranberry extract and vitamin C to support female intimate health.
