Survey: Common infection leads to emotional trauma

(BPT) - A new national survey reveals that women are desperate for solutions to their frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs), and they’re equally tired of the stigma that comes with them.

Key findings of “UTIs: The Burning Truth” by ellura, the urinary tract supplement, found that 76% of women feel they are judged from others. They deal with common misconceptions attached to UTIs that contribute to emotional trauma, often as frustrating as the physical pain UTIs cause. The truth? Sex is a common risk factor associated with UTIs, but estrogen loss from menopause and various medical conditions also increase risk.
