This is a set of tips that my wife and I have found to be very helpful in treating and preventing urinary tract infections in women.
Women in general suffer from urinary tract infections more than men, whether it be after intercourse, using the bathroom, or a random UTI.
Women can often feel yeast or urinary tract infections coming on. Symptoms can include:
The sensation of urinating without urinating
Burning sensation while urinating
These symptoms will often get worse as the infection progresses. The most common treatment is antibiotics, which can come with some negative side effects.
Many women who have chronic UTIs have been put on antibiotics and continued to take these medicines for a long time. Often they find that these antibiotics don’t work as well as they should, whether due to resistance built up by the infection or damage caused by the fluoroquinolones.
What Product We Recommend
There are many products and methods to treat a UTI. We recommend using ACS 200 Silver Gel. Essentially it is a gel form of colloidal silver (a compound known to kill bacteria). We like it because it is filled with natural ingredients, rather than harsh chemicals.
This product is available on Amazon, where the reviews are filled with women discussing this product’s positive effects on their chronic UTI suffering.
As always, check with your doctor or OBGYN before using this product.
How ACS 200 Silver Works (Amazon)
ACS 200 Silver is a product that can be used both to treat and prevent UTIs. While we recommend the gel form for easier application (discussed below), there is also a water-based version of the product that can be used by applying it to a tampon before use.
The easiest way to apply the gel is using a suppository applicator, readily available on Amazon. It functions similarly to a syringe. We recommend a clear product, as opposed to an opaque product. This makes it easier to see the amount of gel that has been used.
There has been some research that has suggested that H. Pylori may mimic UTIs
When to Use ACS 200 Silver
When treating a UTI, we recommend using three pumps of the gel product in the applicator once or twice a day. The applicator is inserted and the plunger pressed to apply the gel. Thanks to the product’s gel form, it should not run or drip.
If you generally get a UTI from intercourse, this gel can also be used as a sexual lubricant. This kills the bacteria where they enter, preventing the UTI from growing and spreading after intercourse.
If you are prone to getting UTIs from bathroom use, then it might be wise to apply a drop or two in your vaginal area after cleaning up.
This should only be done with the approval and supervision of your doctor or OBGYN.
