1. Holding your pee
Are you always holding your pee in? I’ll be the first to admit that I do it way too often. Even in times where a bathroom’s within reach. It makes sense not to want to go while travelling. But other than that, you should go when you can. Holding it in is one of the main causes of a urinary tract infection.

2. Cycling regularly
Do you love cycling? It sure is great exercise. It burns calories and keeps you fit. But you’ll be surprised to learn this wonderful cardio exercise can give you an infection.

3. Drugs
Just as holding your pee in your bladder increases the chances of bacteria, there are some medicines which could be causing the same effect.

4. Wiping the wrong way
Believe it or not, even wiping the wrong way after you pee, or having a bowel movement could cause a urinary tract infection. The right way to do it is from front to back, as the other way could transfer bacteria from your anus to your urethra. This means the bacteria can enter your bladder and cause UTI.

5. Diabetes
Diabetes is one of the major causes of a urinary tract infection. Those suffering with either type 1 or type 2 have a greater chance of UTI than those that don’t.
