It’s estimated more than half of all women will develop a UTI in their lives--and often more than once. The causes may range from weak bladder immunity, hormonal imbalances, poor hygiene, and even STDs. Common causes for UTIs include: medications and birth control pills that suppress prostaglandin E1, E3 and nitric oxide, which lead to abrasions along the urethral tract, vaginal canal, and cervix. An excess production of prostaglandin E2 will ignite a UTI; however, excessive prostaglandin E2 can also be triggered by a hormonal imbalance, such as excessive progesterone or estrogen, or a lack of androstenedione, testosterone or DHT.
Women hoping to prevent reoccurring UTIs should ensure they wipe properly and clean their genitals daily. Women who constantly combat UTIs may want to refrain from taking birth control pills while taking Cranberry Remedy with Hibiscus to help reduce symptoms.

The Pill’s Real Story: It Prevents Pregnancy and Stops PMS Symptoms, but Unwanted Side Effects include Vaginal Infection and Orgasm Dysfunction

The pill is the most commonly-used form of contraception among women. Its popularity is owed to a 91 percent effective rate at preventing pregnancy and the ability to manage PMS symptoms.
