Urinary Tract Infections

Keep your urinary tract on track

Maintaining good urinary tract health is the key to avoiding problems in your urinary tract.

After the flu and the common cold, urinary tract infections are the most common medical complaint among women age 18+, and it has been estimated that up to 60% of women will experience the unbearable pain and discomfort of a UTI at least once during their lives. The rate of repeat infections is high as well — about 20% of those who experience one UTI will have another.**

A UTI is an infection anywhere in the urinary tract, such as the kidneys, bladder and urethra. Usually, the bacteria that cause a UTI enter the urethra and may travel to the bladder and kidneys. Your body often removes these bacteria, so there may not even be symptoms. But when they continue to reside in the bladder, they can cause irritation, which leads to an infection. Without treatment, the infection can lead to a more serious condition. That's why it so important to see your doctor as soon as you experience symptoms. Only your doctor can prescribe an antibiotic to treat your UTI.

So whether you’re trying to sustain a healthy urinary tract or looking to get fast relief of UTI symptoms like pain, burning and urgency, there’s an AZO product perfect for your urinary health routine.

What is a UTI?

A UTI is an infection anywhere in the urinary tract, such as the kidneys, bladder and urethra. Usually, the bacteria that cause a UTI enter the urethra and may travel to the bladder and kidneys. Your body often removes these bacteria, so there may not even be symptoms of a UTI. But when they continue to reside in the bladder, they can cause irritation, which leads to a urinary tract infection. Check out our UTI quiz.

What causes a UTI?

Both men and women can get urinary tract infections, although they are more common in women. That's because the bacteria that commonly cause a UTI are found in the digestive tract, stool, and on the skin around and between a woman's anus and vagina. Since the female urethra is located very near these areas, the likelihood of bacteria reaching it is great. The short length of a female's urethra also makes her more prone to infection in other parts of the urinary tract.***
