Pro-Cyan is a triple action formula containing 2 strains of healthy bacteria, cranberry extract and vitamin A to help maintain a healthy urinary tract. Suitable for use during pregnancy.
Lower UTIs in the bladder are commonly known as ‘cystitis’. In more than 80% of cases, they are caused by the overgrowth of the bacteria (E.coli) originating from the digestive system or vagina, or more rarely the bloodstream. Infections from the digestive system are more common as the pathogenic bacteria that colonise in the gut are able to move easily from the anus to the urethra. Probably for this reason, UTIs are more frequent in women than men, with an estimated half of all women in the UK having at least one UTI in their life-time with 25% having recurrent episodes.
Drink 3 litres of water a day during an acute attack and 2-3 litres thereafter (to help flush the bacteria from the bladder)
Avoid retaining urine for long periods of time
Avoid sexual intercourse until infection has cleared
Wash before and after intimacy and urinate immediately after sexual intercourse
Keep the genital area clean and wipe from front to back
Some suggest wearing cotton underwear, avoid tight-fitting trousers, perfumed soaps, vaginal deodorants, feminine wipes and tampons
