Understanding Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
Statistically, around 50% of women and 12% of men will contract a UTI within their lifetime. This type of infection will affect more than 1 in every 4 people worldwide.

More About UTIs
A UTI is an infection that can be found in your kidneys, ureters, urethra, and most commonly, your bladder. Bacteria (pathogens), mainly e. coli, in the bladder and urinary tract are the most common pathogens. However, if not flushed away during urination, pathogenic bacteria can grow and proliferate on the bladder wall causing pain, frequency, and distress. A UTI infection can travel from the bladder to the rest of your urinary tract and can cause more harm to the body if not cared for in a timely manner.
If you think that you might have a UTI, contact your doctor immediately to get an accurate diagnosis and start treatment.

UTIs and Menopause
Hot flashes, night sweats, and sleep irregularities are common to experience when you are going through menopause. It is unfortunate that menopause sometimes leads to a higher risk of developing UTIs.
Once a woman begins to go through menopause, her estrogen levels begin to drop, thus changing the composition of the urinary tract. This is one reason why it can become easier for bad bacteria to manifest itself.
Also, bladder prolapse is more common after menopause. Prolapse happens when the front wall of the vagina is weakened – usually due to the stress of childbirth plus changes during menopause, repeated straining from heavy lifting and or constipation. The weakened vaginal wall that normally helps keep the bladder in place lets the bladder prolapse (or drop) into the vagina. In this position, the bladder can’t empty completely and bad bacteria can stay and multiply thus dramatically increasing the odds of a UTI.
UTIs and Other Medical Conditions
Diabetes or any medical condition that slows or stops the body from fighting infection increases your risk of UTIs. In fact, you’re 65% more likely to get a UTI if you have Type 2 diabetes. Sugar in the urine creates a breeding ground where bacteria can quickly multiply. It might be best to keep blood sugar under control can help prevent UTIs.
