While it's common for women in their 20s to get urinary tract infections (UTIs), it is a myth that they are the only age group to get them. Women going through both peri-menopause and menopause are susceptible to UTIs as well. Can you tell myth from fact when it comes to UTIs during menopause. Take our quiz to find out!
Many women experiencing peri-menopause and menopause are surprised to learn they are susceptible to UTIs. Keeping yourself educated on the myths and facts surrounding peri-menopausal and menopausal UTIs can help you with overall prevention and treatment.
If you have scheduled an appointment with a health care professional to confirm and treat a UTI and are waiting to see them, you can reduce UTI pain with an over-the-counter urinary pain reliever like URISTAT® Pain Relief Tablets, which contains Phenazopyridine HCl, the #1 doctor recommended ingredient for UTI pain. Uristat® helps provide quick and temporary relief for symptoms such as burning, pain, urgency and frequency of urination. These tablets can also be taken while on antibiotics to help relieve any pain you are experiencing while the infection continues to clear.
If you suspect you have a UTI but are not sure, you can test at home with the URISTAT® UTI Test Strip, which is included in the URISTAT® Relief PAK™. The URISTAT® Relief PAK™ also includes 12 URISTAT® Pain Relief Tablets for fast, temporary relief of UTI symptoms. If your test at home indicates you do in fact have a UTI, be sure to follow up with a health care professional. He or she may still perform a test to prescribe the most effective antibiotic to fully kill the bacteria causing the UTI. Even if your test comes out negative, it is still a good idea to contact your health care professional. Be sure to let him or her know you have taken URISTAT® Pain Relief Tablets.
