Answer: Hello dear, UTIs do not pose any danger to a developing fetus, However, untreated UTIs can progress to kidney infections, which are far more serious.  Try home remedies to fight UTI. 1. Drink Plenty of Fluids Hydration status has been linked to the risk of urinary tract infection. This is because regular urination can help flush bacteria from the urinary tract to prevent infection. 2. Increase Vitamin C Intake Vitamin C is thought to work by increasing the acidity of the urine, thereby killing off the bacteria that cause infection. Fruits and vegetables are especially high in vitamin C and are a good way to increase your intake. Red peppers, oranges, grapefruit and kiwifruit all contain the full recommended amount of vitamin C in just one serving. 3. Drink Unsweetened Cranberry Juice Drinking unsweetened cranberry juice is one of the most well-known natural remedies for urinary tract infections. Cranberries work by preventing bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract, thus preventing infection . In one recent study, women with recent histories of UTIs drank an 8-ounce (240-ml) serving of cranberry juice every day for 24 weeks. Those who drank cranberry juice had fewer UTI episodes than the control group. 4. Take a Probiotic Probiotics are available in supplement form or can be found in fermented foods, such as kefir, kimchi, kombucha and probiotic yogurt. The use of probiotics has been linked to everything from improved digestive health to enhanced immune function.
