General Guidelines for Managing Urinary Tract Infections

Drink Plenty of Water

Make sure that you drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. Drinking plenty of water can help flush the bacteria out of your urinary system. It also helps flush the antibiotics through your system.

Don’t Hold It

When you feel the urge to urinate, do so as soon as possible. Holding back on urination may cause an increase in bacterial growth in the urinary tract.

In addition, urinate before and after sexual intercourse.
