The Burning Question: To Pee or Not To Pee

Written by Kristine Cummings and Anna Salajegheh
Active Image The first and only time I ever got a Urinary Tract Infection (more commonly known as an UTI) was a summer that I made friends with someone who had a hot tub…which I loved and spent way too much time in. I should have known better. For as long as I can remember, my mother has warned me about this certain infection. Never go in a pool or bath that doesn’t look clean. Even if they are clean, it is a good idea to have a glass of cranberry juice after to prevent an UTI. Stay hydrated and urinate every two to three hours. But did I listen? Nooooo. It was her problem; it would never happen to me.
