What Is a UTI?
A UTI is an infection in any part of the urinary tract, which includes the urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys. This condition can affect anyone at any age, although it is more common in women than men. UTIs develop when bacteria enter the urinary system, which can result from poor hygiene habits, sexual activity, holding urine, or a urinary catheter. Factors such as being pregnant, having diabetes, and going through menopause can also increase the risk of urinary tract infections.
To help prevent UTIs, be sure to drink plenty of water, practice good hygiene, and avoid potentially irritating hygiene products. It’s also important to promptly use the restroom when your bladder is full and urinate shortly after sexual activity to flush away bacteria.
What are the symptoms of a UTI?
You may have a UTI if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
A frequent urge to urinate, even when your bladder is empty
Pain or a burning sensation while urinating
Very dark or cloudy urine
Urine that has a red or pinkish hue due to blood
Pelvic pain (in women)
Pain around your side, belly, or lower back
Be sure to promptly visit Lifeline Urgent Care for UTI treatment if you notice one or more of these symptoms, especially if you have a fever, chills, or nausea. Only a medical professional can determine if you have a UTI, and if you do, self-care measures like drinking cranberry juice or taking supplements simply won’t clear the infection and provide the relief you need.
What Does UTI Treatment Involve?
The first step of treatment is to confirm that a UTI is to blame for your symptoms. We can quickly perform urinalysis onsite, among several other lab tests, to find answers fast. If you have a UTI, your treatment plan will likely include antibiotics to clear the infection and help you get back to feeling like yourself. If left untreated, the infection can spread beyond the urinary tract and affect the kidneys, which can cause more complex symptoms.
