Can a UTI affect getting pregnant?

There is no evidence that lower urinary tract infections (UTIs) in a woman affects her ability to conceive, but upper tract (kidney) infections might. In addition, note that infections in your male partner can affect his fertility. Furthermore, once you get pregnant, UTIs can cause problems for you and your baby.

How can I prevent UTI in pregnancy?

  1. Practice good hygiene. Wipe from front to back after you urinate to prevent the spreading of bacteria.
  2. Stay hydrated. Urinating is an effective way of clearing germs from the bladder and urethra.
  3. Urinate before and after sex.
  4. Urinate frequently.
  5. Watch your diet.
  6. Drink cranberry juice.
