I want to talk to you about a health issue. That is very common, especially for women.
This health issue is urinary tract infection
Urinary tract infection is an infection in any part of the urinary system - the kidneys, bladder or urethra.
It is a very common infection, there are more than 1.5 million cases per year in Nigeria, the chances of every woman getting a urinary tract infection is very high.
Most urinary tract infection is caused by bacteria but some are caused by fungi and in rare causes by viruses.
It is the most common infection in humans, especially women. The infection can happen anywhere in your urinary tract - the kidneys, bladder or urethra. Although most times it only involves the urethra and bladder.
Uti is the key reason women are often told to wipe from front to back after using the toilet.
This is because the urethra - the tube that transports urine from the bladder to the outside of the body is located close to the anus.
Bacteria from the large intestine such as e.coli are in the perfect position to escape the anus and invade the urethra from there, they can travel up to the bladder and if the infection is not treated, it will continue until it infects the kidneys.
Women are especially prone to UTI because they have shorter urethras, which allow bacteria quick access to the bladder.
Sex can sometimes introduce bacteria into the urinary tract too.

let me also give you some TIPS ON PERSONAL HYGIENE TO HELP PREVENT UTI.....
After a bowel movement, clean the area around the anus gently wiping from front to back.
2.) Avoid long intervals between urination. Try to empty the bladder at least every four hours during the day while awake. When feeling the urge to urinate, do not try to hold it.
3.) The use of tampons is advised during the menstrual flow rather than sanitary pads because they keep the bladder opening area drier than a sanitary pad thereby limiting bacterial growth.
4.) Avoid the use of spermicidal jelly.
