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.
