About Stop UTI Forever
Are you avoiding sex because of recurrent UTIs? Focusing on every sensation trying to guess the early symptoms of UTI way too often?
Unfortunately, chronic recurrent UTIs is a difficult problem to solve. If you are looking for researched-backed information about urinary tract infections then you are in the right place.
Anastasia's UTI story
I had a series of recurring urinary tract infections from January – June 2013. My doctor suggested antibiotics as a preventative measure ( “What doctors don’t know about UTI prevention”), which meant drinking drugs every time after sex.
For the past several years, I’ve been reading, writing and interviewing researchers, physicians, and naturopaths to bring you a well-rounded overview of UTI causes, treatment, and prevention tactics.
Dr. O's story
I’m a Stanford, UCLA, and UWisc trained physician and board certified medical doctor leading a cause to improve individual health and wellness.
As a urologist, I counsel and treat genitourinary disorders. As a Wellness Coach, I counsel individuals on best practices to reach their health goals.
While I enjoy urologic practice, my ultimate goal is to treat the whole person, rather than the individual parts, to ensure all areas of health are nurtured and validated. I, therefore, chose to pursue training as a certified health coach, in order to cultivate the areas of bio-individuality, mindfulness, nutrition, and wellness in my practice. With this blend of Western medicine and an integrative and holistic approach, I focus on lifestyle modification and personal agency in order to achieve a lifelong commitment to health and wellbeing in my clients.
