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.***

    The best !
    I use for overall health reasons and of course urinary tract health. These are the best I have used so far. Beside these I do drink cranberry juice however not enough to fulfill my daily requirement. These soft gels are easy to swallow and so far no adverse reaction.

    AZO Cranberry Gummies
    As someone who's a huge fan of AZO products, I was super excited when AZO actually formulated a gummy product that makes taking a daily supplement much more pleasant and convenient! AZO didn't disappoint on this product, which was no surprise! They're like getting a yummy treat each day and knowing that you're doing something good for your urinary tract health even more importantly!

    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.

    very impressed
    Wow! I had the worst UTI pain ever yesterday! I literally wanted to cry every time I had to use the bathroom which due to the UTI was every 5-10 minutes. My Dr. gave me antibiotics and suggested I get this medication as well. I rolled my eyes at the thought because for whatever reason my body does not respond well to prescription pain meds let alone over the counter ones. Still I was miserable and willing to try anything. I just can't believe how well this stuff worked. My pain is ... read more completely gone! Thank you so much AZO!!!!

    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.

    New to Cranberry AZO
    The Cranberry AZO is new to me. I have used the regular AZO for urinary tract for years. This was great to use in place of purchasing the cranberry juice which has a lot of sugar in it. Having three daughters this was easy to share with them to use to benefit them as well. Will try the gummy version next.

    Very convenient to take. Great product! I would take this again. The AZO Cranberry Caplets worked for me.

    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.

    AZO, A new wave in women's health
    I grew up in the 70's when there was little help for urinary tract infection defense. You knew about it too late and the pain was hardly bareable. Even in the 80's the dr. would give you an expensive pill that would work, but only after you had the infection and it would take days, sometimes a week or longer. Thanks to AZO, you can now have a defense against a urinary tract infection wnd the pain associated with it.

    Great temporary pain relief!
    I bought this product on the advice of a friend for a UTI. I must say it stopped the pain with a few minutes - maybe 15. However, it only lasted about 3 to 31/2 hours. I took 2 more as per the directions, and had relief for another 3 or so hours. Then I realized, just as the instructions in the box said, I need to see a medical care provider. Mine was the ER! The pain came back but luckily with an injection and antobiotics the pain was virtually gone in about an hour. Great product - but temporary!!!

    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.
