Cystex may help battle UTI

Although I haven’t experienced a UTI in many years, I do know many women who have. I wasn’t able to review this product but I know this is an important topic to get out there to women who need it!

To help women better understand their bladder health, including UTIs, Dr. Elizabeth Kavaler, M.D., Board-Certified Urologist, is the featured expert of the new Cystex “Know Your Bladder Better” video series at Physician-recommended Cystex® is the first and only over-the-counter medication that combines a pain reliever for temporary relief of the burning and discomfort of urinary tract infections (UTIs), along with an antibacterial agent that helps stop the progression of the infection. It’s not a cure, but a way to be proactive and deal with an annoying problem while you wait for that doctor appointment date!

This new video series covers important information such as

  • UTIs Facts & symptoms; UTIs account for more than eight million doctor visits each year and are considered the second most common infection in the body!
  • Public Restroom use and UTIs: What you need to know!
  • Sex and the UTI Connection. Honeymoon cystitis?
  • Can cranberries really cure UTIs?
  • How does menopause increase your UTI risk?

I found these short videos informative and to be a great jumping point for doing your own research on the subject. They offer valid reasons about the hows an whys of urinary tract infections in a quick Q & A format.

    I learned that Cystex is the only over-the-counter urinary pain reliever available with a dual-action formula that not only eases the pain and burning caused by a urinary tract infection (UTI), but also contains an antibacterial (methenamine) to help keep the infection from getting worse while you wait for your doctor’s appointment. It won’t cause a change in your urine color either. This is GREAT as the other OTC products don't have the antibacterial AND cause your urine to turn ORANGE!!!!!

    I get these all the time, ever since I had my first daughter. I love all that it offers ! I learned that In the United States alone, urinary tract infections (UTIs) account for more than eight million doctor visits each year and are considered the second most common infection in the body.
