This video is for those of you who want to prevent a urine infection. Now, urine infections are more common in women than they are in children or in men, so if your child has a urine infection or if you're a man it is vital that you go to the doctor and get this investigated and I would say that if you are a woman with a known infection again, you do need treatment for that but if you are prone to infections and you want to know ways of preventing them the I have got tips here that I hope would help you. So my number one tip is not to hold urine in, people sometimes have a tendency to get a job done and try and hold off trying to go to the loo if they can but I would say as soon as you feel the urge you must go.
If you do hold the urine in then you give the urine the chance to stagnate in the bladder and it is more likely that bacteria will come and infect the urinary tract. You must be well hydrated; drinking plenty of water would mean that you would be able to flush out the bacteria that may have crept its way to the urinary tract, so drink lots and lots of water. Now cranberry juice is well known to help to reduce your chances of a urinary infection and in fact studies have shown that a small glass of cranberry juice everyday will hopefully help to prevent the risk.
Vitamin c is also good for helping prevent bacteria from entering the urinary tract, so if you have a diet full of citrus fruits and broccoli, pepper sprouts, all these kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables they would be good also for preventing your long term risk. In children if you could teach your children to wipe their bottoms front to back. This is a common reason why little girls might get a urinary infection, so it is important to wipe the right way around, if you're wiping from back to front the unfortunately bacteria form the bowel can enter into the bladder.
Along the same token some women find that they are more likely to get urinary infections after intercourse so I would advise you to go to the toilet for a wee before and after sex and if you know that a particular sexual position causes friction and try and vary that. So I hope that these tips have been useful for you and I hope that they were able to prevent urine infections in the future.
