My name is Tricia, I’m 33 years old and suffer from recurrent urinary tract infections. UTIs are caused by bacteria (commonly E. coli) that ascend from the vagina into the urethra, which can then ascend into the bladder and kidneys. Women with an infection often experience pain on urination, increased frequency of urination, greater urgency (the feeling of having to continually go to the bathroom), pubic pain and/or blood in the urine. I used to get UTIs all the time in my 20s and 30s. They are just horrible. I feel like it totally immobilizes me, and I can’t think about anything else until I can get relief. Since my visit with Dr. Oz and Dr. Bhatia, I have made some adjustments to my daily living to avoid recurrent urinary tract infections.

In addition to following Dr. Bhatia’s five steps, drinking more water, minimizing my use of feminine-hygiene products, wiping front to back, drinking prune juice or apple cider vinegar to reset my bladder pH, and eating progesterone-boosting foods (which I found some great recipes for on the Internet), I’ve seen a big difference. In addition to these steps, Dr. Bhatia told me that probiotics are excellent at normalizing bacteria in the urinary area. Eating sugar-free, natural yogurt or taking a probiotic supplement daily is also very effective along with a healthy diet. Last, Dr. Bhatia told me to urinate immediately after sex, which cuts down on the chances of bacteria entering the urethra.

All the doctors I have gone to in the past wrote me a prescription for antibiotics and I went on my way not knowing how to prevent another infection. I want to thank Dr. Oz and Dr. Bhatia for all their help and advice. I can now live a healthier life UTI free!
