Wet bathing suits and public pools can ruin your Summer with another UTI.
As we head toward the summer season and temperatures across the US reach 80˚, the cases of urinary tract infections increase substantially (by 20%).
But what exactly is causing this increase in UTI occurrences? Let’s first understand how a urinary tract infection occurs. When bacteria pass through the urethra and travels into the bladder or kidneys, the bacteria multiply in the urinary tract. Researchers have identified several factors that could be playing a part in the increase of UTIs in warmer weather.
Wet Bathing Suits
The coming of summer means lazy weekends by the pool, taking a trip to the ocean, swimming in the lake, and spending lots of time in swimsuits. One’s swimming hygiene habits or lack thereof can increase the risk of developing recreational water illnesses, especially UTIs.
Swimming pools can be a breeding ground for germs if there is a combination of urine or fecal matter in the water, people not showering before swimming, and low levels of chlorine. Be cautious and monitor the levels of chlorine in your swimming pools to ensure the water is adequately disinfected and decontaminated.
Germs tend to grow best in warm, moist places. Women are more prone to UTI due to their tight-fitting swimsuits and anatomically shorter urethra that gives easier access to the bladder.
When the temperature begins to rise, there is a greater likelihood of becoming dehydrated. This may be the link between UTIs and summer because when people become dehydrated, they produce less urine to flush out their urinary tract. This gives bacteria the opportunity to grow and possibly cause infection.
