According to a latest study published in the American Journal of Medicine (1), investigators reported that 33% females experience at least one moderately severe episode of UTI before celebrating their 24th birthday. Likewise, during a lifetime, almost 100% females develop at least one episode of UTI requiring antibiotics or medical advice.
