My backs sore, and I feel like I have to pee alot. Looks like I’ve got a water infection or UTI as they are also known. ☹️
Guess I better go and get a test at the drs 😭😭😭😭
They call it the honeymoon illness …. High levels of sexual activity often results in a urinary tract infection (UTI). I also had a hysterectomy 2 years ago and research has shown that this can also increase the instances of UTI suffered. Prior to the hysterectomy I had only had water infections during pregnancy (another common occurrence). So put together our weekend of fun, with my new predisposition and I know it’s starting – I’m learning to recognise the signs.
The general advice here in the UK on preventing UTI is simple:
- Always wipe front to back after toileting,
- Empty the bladder before and as soon as possible after sexual activity
- Keep yourself clean and avoid highly scented cleansers.
I follow these rules meticulously… Still I seem to be attracting them… And as well as the frequent need to urinate I have found I feel generally unwell when I get a UTI. I feel sick and dizzy.
Thankfully they are easy to treat and my GP surgery is fast when it comes to getting the test results and issuing antibiotics. So in about 3 days time I will be feeling much better.
