Pregnancy period

Cause of UTIs and why it normally common during pregnancy.

1}Hormones are one reason. In pregnancy, they cause changes in the urinary tract, and that makes women more likely to get the infections. Changes in hormones can also lead to vesicoureteral reflux, a condition in which your pee flows back up from your bladder to your kidneys. This can cause UTIs.

2}When you’re pregnant, your pee has more sugar, protein, and hormones in it. These changes also put you at higher risk for a UTI.This is because while pregnant, your growing uterus presses on your bladder.making it hard for you to let out all the urine in your bladder. Leftover urine can be another source of infection.

Other causes of UTIs include:

3}Escherichia coli and other bacteria from your poop. E. Coli is the most common cause of UTIs and can move from your rectum to your urethra if you don’t wipe from front to back.

4}Sexual activity.

Infection can spread easily during sex or using sex toys and using dirty latrines.
