Ural

When you need to go, but it stings to go … take Ural®.

You’ll feel the relief!

Bladder infections, also called cystitis, are a type of urinary tract infection (UTI) which is surprisingly common. The painful stinging, burning sensation when you try to pass urine shouldn’t be ignored.

Ural® provides fast, effective relief from the burning symptoms of a bladder infection.

Causes

Why did I get a UTI?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) happens when bacteria get in to the urinary tract and multiply. The most common type of UTI is Cystitis, where bacteria have infected the bladder.

Women of all ages can get UTI’s for all sorts of reasons. Women are more commonly affected due to anatomy; the urethra is shorter, enabling bacteria to travel to the bladder more easily. Men and children sometimes get UTI’s as well.

Symptoms

Common symptoms of UTI

Cystitis can start with a faint prickly, ‘unfinished’ feeling when you’re urinating. You might also experience:

  • A scalding or stinging sensation when urinating
  • An urge to urinate frequently
  • Passing only small amounts of urine
  • Abnormally coloured or strong smelling urine
  • Pain in your lower pelvic area

If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor or pharmacist.

If left untreated, some UTI’s can lead to kidney infections, which can be a very serious condition. Symptoms of a kidney infection may include:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Pain on the sides of the lower back (in the kidney area)
  • Feeling very unwell

If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor as soon as possible.

Treatments

Ural

What treatments are available for UTI’s?

Your pharmacist or doctor can help you to find the right treatment for you.

Ural® works fast to relieve the stinging sensation

Ural® provides fast relief from cystitis symptoms because it’s an alkaliniser, which works by neutralising the acid in your urine, making it less painful to pass urine.

Ural® is available in pharmacies, ask for it by name.

How do I use Ural®?

As soon as you notice any cystitis symptoms, take Ural® as early as possible. This pleasant-tasting effervescent drink can help relieve the painful, burning sensation – and you can take it up to four times daily.

To use, just follow the easy directions on the pack. But don’t take Ural® for more than five days, unless your pharmacist or doctor advises you otherwise. And if your symptoms don’t improve within a couple of days, or if you feel worse, go to see your pharmacist or doctor right away.

Antibiotics will eliminate the bacteria

Antibiotics, such as Trimethoprim, will treat the bacterial infection, but may take a day or two for your symptoms to resolve.

You can get Trimethoprim from your Pharmacy without a prescription.

Always take the full course of antibiotics you have been dispensed, even if you feel better before you have finished them.

Taking Ural® may help relieve your symptoms sooner than antibiotics alone. It can be used in combination with most antibiotics. Ask your pharmacist if you can take Ural® in combination with your antibiotics.

Where do cranberry supplements fit in?

Cranberry supplements and unsweetened cranberry juice may help to prevent future UTI’s, although there is little scientific evidence to support this.

Prevention

Tips to prevent UTI’s:

  • Drink plenty of water daily.
  • Keep your genital area clean.
  • Take showers instead of baths.
  • Urinate and wash before and after sexual activity.
  • When you need to go – go! Holding it in can help bacterial infections develop.
  • Wipe front to back after going toilet – and wipe gently.
  • Wear underpants with a cotton crotch as this helps moisture escape.
  • A good quality cranberry supplement or unsweetened cranberry juice may help to prevent UTI’s, although there is little scientific evidence to support this.
