How to Prevent UTIs in Men

Male UTI: Symptoms and Causes

If you think you have a urinary tract infection, a proper diagnosis from your doctor will need to be made so you can get the correct treatment. You can begin by describing your symptoms , which usually include painful, frequent urination, leaking urine, and/or lower back and abdominal pain among others. Your doctor may test your urine for white blood cells and bacteria, or do a urine culture to determine the type of bacteria causing the infection. This will allow for the best treatment of the UTI.

Male urinary tract infections causes include internal catheter use, which allow bacteria to enter the bladder more easily, issues with the prostate, weakened immune systems from long-term illness, and other general problems with the urinary tract.

Tips for Preventing UTI in Men

If you’re susceptible to urinary tract infections, there are a few things you can do to reduce your risk of getting one. Here’s how to prevent UTI in men:

  • Drink a lot of fluids, especially water. This can help flush the bacteria out of the urinary tract, and in mild infections can even help treat it completely.
  • Urinate when you have to- don’t hold your urine when you feel the urge to go.
  • Empty your bladder as much as possible when urinating.
  • If you are uncircumcised, clean the foreskin often so bacteria doesn’t get trapped and enter the urinary tract.
