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. In many cases, UTIs can lead to excruciating pain and costly treatments of antibiotics that are often ineffective. In some cases, a UTI will clear on its own.
The best defense is a strong offense. Your doctor may suggest a more proactive approach. Preventative measures are the most effective way to defend against future UTIs and protect against recurrent UTIs.
How UTIs & PRVNT® Work For Me:
A UTI is an infection that can be found in your kidneys, ureters, urethra, and most commonly, your bladder. Bacteria (pathogens) in the bladder are usually flushed away during urination. 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 with a sense of urgency.
If you think that you might have a UTI, contact your doctor immediately to get an accurate diagnosis and start treatment.
PRVNT® can be taken with most antibiotics (check with your doctor) and should be taken until the infection clears.
Once the infection clears, you should continue taking PRVNT® once daily as your new UTI defense regimen. PRVNT's® natural bioactives are effective in helping your body flush out pathogenic (bad) bacteria and support healthy flushing of the urinary tract. PRVNT® is naturally effective and uses 37-40mg of PAC (proanthocyanidins). This highly refined extract from cranberry fruit is clinically used to prevent pathogenic bacteria from adhering to the walls of the urinary tract.
Standard UTI Symptoms:
UTIs are serious and need to be immediately addressed before they fully manifest. Symptoms should be addressed no matter what their severity. Below are standard UTI symptoms that should be discussed with your doctor.
Standard UTI symptoms:
Burning when you urinate
A frequent urge to urinate, even if it a small amount (frequency)
Unusual smelling urine
Pain or discomfort in your lower back or abdomen
Fever like symptoms
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your lower back or abdomen, and have fever-like symptoms in addition to other symptoms, there is an increased likelihood that a UTI is affecting your kidneys. If this is the case, contact your doctor.
UTI Risk Factors:
Some of the factors that can put you at a higher risk of contracting UTIs include:
Women are more susceptible than men
If you are sexually active
If you take birth control pills
If you are going through menopause
If you are pregnant
If you have a personal or familial history of UTIs
If you have certain medical conditions or use catheters.
UTIs & You
UTIs can cause major disruptions in your life. Not only are they painful, but they can also be time-consuming and costly.
Welcome to PRVNT®, a multifaceted natural formula that helps fight UTIs in a new and unique way. Our formula is robust and utilizes the latest in UTI research to give your urinary tract the best chance of preventing an infection. Two pills daily can support your urinary and digestive tract for a defense system that can keep UTIs in check.
In almost every case, UTIs are not your fault. In reality, many times you can't control if you are going to contract a UTI. There are times when you are unable to use the bathroom immediately. Whether you are at a business meeting, taking birth control, or on vacation, taking PRVNT® can help minimize the chance of contracting a UTI.
If you think that you are going to be in a high-risk setting for developing a UTI, you can (2) two additional pills of PRVNT® for extra prevention for up to two days.
UTIs from Intercourse:
Sexual intercourse is one of the leading ways women contract UTIs. In almost every case, this isn't related to the hygiene of either person, rather, just the susceptibility from the scenario. Even after showering, bad bacteria can still be still present and can easily travel through the woman's short urethra and into the bladder. Although hygiene is important to reduce the risk of contracting a UTI, it isn't the only factor.
If you get frequent UTIs after intercourse, PRVNT® may be a powerful option at your disposal. For fast-acting protective support, take (4) two capsules of PRVNT® before and after intercourse and (4) two more the following day to support more anti-adhesion activity. Even when you urinate on a consistent basis while taking PRVNT®, it is crucial to understand that not all the bad bacteria may be flushed out. However, long term consistent use of PRVNT® is an effective way to support healthy flushing of the urinary tract, improve digestive health and overall immune function.
PRVNT® is safe to take every day, especially when compared to long term daily antibiotic use. Discuss with your doctor and feel the PRVNT® difference.
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. For this reason, it can become easier for bad bacteria to manifest themselves.
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 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. Keeping blood sugar under control can help prevent UTIs.
