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.***

    Relief
    I don't go anywhere without it because I get so many UTI's. I take a dose when I feel the symptoms then call the doc for a prescription. I get examined regularly.

    Very Accurate
    I bought these on Sunday because I felt like I might have a UTI. The strip turned dark purple in no time. I went to the doctor this morning and they confirmed that I in fact do have a pretty bad UTI. This product bought me peace of mind until I was able to go to the doctor.

    I love this product!
    After one of my friends recommended that I try this product after I had multiple UTIs I now take AZO cranberry caplets along with my daily vitamins. Other than drinking cranberry juice I didn't think there were other options for keeping my urinary tract healthy until I was introduced to azo. Looking forward to trying the new gummies product!

    I recieved a free Sample of AZO Urinary Pain Relief Maximum Strength it starts working in as little as one dose. I highly reccomend this product for those of you who suffer from this.

    Life Saver!
    Azo will not get rid of your UTI. You still need to go to the doctor and get on antibiotics. However, when it is 2am and your doctor does not open until 9am, Azo can help relieve the misery that goes along with a UTI. I always have some in my purse and in my house just in case. As I said, it won't treat your issue but it will relieve your pain until you are able to get to the doctor and get medication.

    helps quickly!
    I've been buying azo products for a while now, and pretty much all of them have helped me, but especially this one! You take the pill and the next time you go to the bathroom, there is no pain whatsoever! It is a great quick fix, until you can get to the doc/gyno too see if anything is wrong. My mother uses these too & also recommends the bladder control because it helped her as well!

    AZO is a life saver!
    I have had occasional UTI's my whole life, and AZO has been a part of the family for many years. My mom used it, grandma used it, daughters use it as well when needed. Nothing brings faster relief of the horrible pain and constant urgency of a UTI than AZO. It has saved many trips, days at work and vacations too. Wonderful, sweet relief until you can get to a doctor for treatment.
