True or False: High Heels Cause UTIs?

There are many reasons why women get UTIs: holding your pee, not going to the bathroom after sex, wiping the wrong way, and not flushing out your kidneys, but let me ask you this question:

Is it true or false that wearing high heels can cause a bladder infection?

I had no idea. But then again the medical community will come back two years from now and say NOT wearing heels causes bladder infections. Geez!

I have to agree with whoever said that there is no proof of this in any medical journals or otherwise. I work at a clinic, and asked some of the physicians INCLUDING a Urologist and he said its been looked at but not PROVEN>Dont publish some random tip from a member and call it fact.

Liz4aker.. I think heels could cause more damage when your mad at your husband.. wink wink.. *heel in head* I had more bladder infections when I didn't wear heels, Now that I wear them more, and take more care of myself.. I never have infections..

I know heels can cause a lot of damage... but I'm not sure how much I believe this one. Is this a common cause or a really rare thing?

I wore heels for 20 years. Never had a UTI but gave them up when I was told I would need foot surgery, on both feet, from wearing heels. My feet corrected on their own, I didn't need surgery, and only wear heels for special occasions. Ah, youth.....lol :-)

I guess having sex on a full bladder, while wearing HIGH heels and drinking a Cola, really doesn't help my bladder.. DANG IT!!! thanks for the info. HAHA..

This is so unbelievable, maybe it's meant more for women who wear heels all the time, every day and their body is completely adjusted to that.

I've only ever had one in my life and I wear heels all the time. I think at the most, wearing high heels <em>can</em> cause UTIs for <em>some</em> people.

who knew??? thats crazy! i get uti's all the time and i do everything the doctor tells me to do (pee before and after sex, don't hold it, wipe front to back, cotton underwear) and now it boils down to my penchant for 4 inch heels.
