Postmenopausal women may use estrogen cream, which helps restore thinning tissue around the urethra, to decrease urinary tract infections (UTIs), as well as stress incontinence. Here are some other UTI prevention tips for all women:
  • Never hold your pee and urinate 5 to 8 times daily.
  • Take vitamin C and probiotics, such as acidophilus, daily to acidify urine and promote good bacteria.
  • Drink plenty of water.
