If you’ve ever had a urinary tract infection (which is not-so-lovingly nicknamed UTI) then you KNOW how painful it is. It’s a serious, drive-you-insane level of pain. I’d even go so far as to say that a severe urinary tract infection ranks second only to the worst contractions of childbirth in terms of the “agony” factor.
So those of us who have suffered through a urinary tract infection once or twice are VERY interested in preventing future infections. And the good news is that, while it might not be possible to prevent every UTI, you can do a lot to keep yourself in the clear and out of the doctor’s office, begging for relief.
We asked nurse practitioner Megan Morgan, APN, to give us a run-down of the best ways to ward off the dreaded UTI.
