Can Douching Cause A Urinary Tract Infection

Can douching cause a urinary tract infection? A urinary tract infection is caused by the E-coli bacteria which will not be effected by douching. I’ll explain.

What is a UTI

Women are far more likely to get urinary tract infections because the length of their urethra is shorter, and its a lot closer to the rectum. In and around the rectum is where the E-coli bacteria lives, and its when it gets in and around the urethra that it starts causing problems.

A cause for UTIs is not keeping the area between the rectum and urethra clean enough. And another cause is wiping from back to front after using the bathroom. Cleanliness is important in that area of your body so if you’re susceptible to UTIs then you need to take extra care with your personal hygeine.

If you have an infection after douching

If you have been douching and you now have a vaginal infection then it’s very unlikely that it’s a urinary tract infection. Douching will upset the chemical and bacterial balance in your vagina so there’s a chance you could have a yeast infection, but that’s not guaranteed.

See your doctor

Because there are many other bacterial infections of the vagina it’s advised that you go and see your doctor. If you have been douching too hard you could have pushed the infection up into your reproductive organs, and this can cause serious damage to them.

It’s not a good idea to self diagnose yourself from a list of symptoms on the internet. Many of the symptoms are similar with most bacterial vaginal infections, and your doctor can test the bacteria to see what strain it is, and then make a correct diagnosis.

It’s better to be safe than sorry.
