All about UTI’s (signs and cures)

UTI’s (urinary tract infection’s) are such a common thing you hear about happening to people and don’t think too much about it until you get it. Once you do, then they’re the most obnoxious things ever. Thankfully due to growing up in a culture where I would wash and wipe every time I used the bathroom and a balanced diet, I never got one. Until I did. I was on a 15 hour flight and for some reason it didn’t click to me to not use the oddly foggy water coming from the bathroom sink and use a water bottle instead but I was tired, used the weird water and after using it a few times guess what I got, tan tan tannnnn, you guessed it, a UTI.

Now, how can someone even tell they have a UTI? (Yes, women as well as men both get it but its more common in females. Women have a shorter urethra than men do, which lessens the distance that bacteria needs to travel to reach the bladder.)

Thankfully, my symptoms weren’t as wild as some others (where there’s blood in the urine, pungent smell etc.) but I did have the sure tell signs:

  • Constantly needing to pee
  • When you do go to pee, it’s tiny amounts at a time
  • A burning sensation down there
  • Cloudy looking urine (kind foggy lookin)
  • Pelvic/stomach/back pain

I’ve been insanely busy but now I’m getting some control of my time and I’m going to try to be a lot more active on here than I used to be.
