UTIs in Men

What You Should Know

Good Habits & Prevention Tips*

Bladder infections occur when uropathogenic bacteria get through the urethra into the bladder. It’s said that some men are more prone to them than others because they – for some reason – don’t expel bacteria well enough from the urinary tract.

Although some doctors say that there’s no good way to prevent infections – they just occur, here are some simple tips and good habits you can incorporate to reduce your risk of UTIs.

Practice good personal hygiene

Keep the genital area clean. Less than careful hygiene, especially after developing loose stools or diarrhea, is one of the most frequent causes of recurrent bladder infections. Although some doctors argue that hygiene is hardly the issue with UTIs. Some men have bacteria in their urine, but it does not necessarily means that they have an infection.

Drink plenty of water

Drinking enough water, preferably purified and room-temperature, keeps the bladder empty and free of bacteria. However, there are three general rules of thumb to follow; therefore, you should drink:

  • twice as much as it takes to quench your thirst,
  • frequently throughout the day,
  • one cup for every 20 pounds of your body weight, or at least eight, eight-ounce glasses daily.

Urinate when you feel the need

Do not resist the urge to urinate, especially if you have a history of frequent UTIs. Holding in pee for too long can cause bacteria to multiply. If you do not drink enough liquids the bladder is not telling the body to pee often enough. This can cause bacteria to spread through the urinary tract, leading to infection.

Wear only cotton underwear

Wear cotton, breathable underwear. By providing the best ventilation, it is your best friend when it comes to preventing UTIs. Synthetic fabrics hold in moisture from sweat way more than cotton does, and any tight, damp environment is a breeding ground for bacteria. At night, you can either sleep without underwear or wear loose-fitting boxers or shorts.

Avoid wet or tight clothing

Wear loose pants. Clothes that are too tight can increase the spread of bacteria. Changing your clothes (and underwear) often can stop bacteria from traveling into your urinary tract, sparing you from a UTI.

Avoid chemicals

Bubble baths and strong soaps may irritate the urethra.

Take showers and avoid prolonged baths

While water comes from above from the shower head and drains into the drain, so there is a continuous flow of water. Avoid prolonged baths as sitting in a tub allows bacteria to reach the bladder opening area.

Urethritis may cause burning in the penis, especially during urination. It also may be caused by microorganisms that are transmitted through sexual contact, including gonorrhea and chlamydia.

Practice safe sex

Use condoms to prevent infections transmitted through sexual contact.

Avoid sexual intercourse ‘from behind’

Use only white unscented and unbleached toilet paper – you may react to the dyes and chemicals in the other toilet papers. Unbleached toilet paper is better to reduce any possible chlorine exposure and the environmental contamination that comes from the bleaching process.

Cleanse the genital area before sexual intercourse

Wash the penis and hands with soap and water. If condoms are used during anal contact, be sure to change condoms.

Urinate after sexual intercourse, if possible

If not, drink 10-12 ounces of water immediately after intercourse. It will cause you to urinate later and help flush the bacteria out.

The bottom line

Some men have already incorporated these practices. Still, they are prone to UTIs, no matter what they do. If you belong to this category, in addition to healthy habits, you should consider taking specialty dietary supplements for UTIs.
