In brief: Keep dry and clean
Most uti's are caused by e.
Coli bacteria that lives in the digestive tract. Keeping area between the anus an the vigina clean and dry is the best prevention. Wear loose underpants not thongs or tight panties that can " wick" bacteria from back to front. Always wipe after bowel movements from front to back. Azo will treat some mild uti's, see you physician for bad ones.
