I know how it feels when you start avoiding sex because you do not want to pee blood next day. I know how it feels when instead of simply peeing (like all other normal people do) you focus on every sensation, trying to guess early symptoms of UTI. I know the razor sharp sting after urination, when you slide to the floor because it’s so painful. And, I know how the rest don’t quite get it, “it’s just a UTI, make sure to drink cranberry juice!”.
Do you want to feel normal again? Do you want to cure UTI (urinary tract infections)? And benefit from new research? I want to share with you what I know.
I had my recurring urinary tract infections from January – June 2013. My doctor suggested antibiotics as a preventative measure (read this in my post “What doctors don’t know about UTI prevention”), which basically meant drinking drugs every time after sex. Therefore, I did many hours of research to find an alternative solution that so far has been working for me.
My ultimate goal is to share with you the information on UTI research in plain English and help you to stay healthy.
And and important reminder:
I am a former chronic UTI fellow sufferer turned UTI nerd. I spend hours weekly educating myself about UTI news, research, and alternative treatment options. BUT I’m not a doctor and do not provide medical advice. My thoughts and opinions are not intended to replace a medical evaluation and your physician’s treatment plan. UTI could be life threatening if not treated promptly, and the only FDA approved drug for urinary tract infection (UTI) treatment is a round of antibiotics.
