-Tight-fitting pantyhose
-Douching, which removes some of the normal bacteria in the vagina that protect you from infection
-Scented feminine products, including bubble bath, pads and tampons
-Hot tubs and very hot baths
-Unnecessary antibiotic use, such as for colds or other viral infections

Why this tweet?
-To educate you.
-To make you realize there’s no shame in talking to your doctor about an infection.
-To make you stop shaming women who you know have or had an infection. It always doesn’t mean they are promiscuous or you’re better.

Embrace Prevention.
