Find Relief With Urinary Tract Infection Treatment in West Hartford, CT

UTI Treatment West Hartford CT

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common. In fact, at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in West Hartford, Connecticut, UTI treatment is one of our most frequently requested services. Why is that? One reason is that a large number of bacteria live in the area around the rectum and, in women, the vagina. Most of these bacteria are beneficial and necessary for healthy intestinal function. However, the bacteria can cause problems if they enter the nearby urethra and invade the bladder, which is not unusual given the proximity of the rectum and the urethra.

Some people are more prone to UTIs than others. For instance, women are more susceptible to UTIs than men. That’s because bacteria can reach a woman’s bladder more easily than a man’s due to her comparatively short urethra.

Do You Need Treatment for a UTI?

A UTI can cause your urethra and bladder to become irritated and inflamed. As a result, you may feel a strong and persistent urge to urinate—even with minimal urine in your bladder—only to produce just a few drops at a time. During urination, you may experience a painful burning sensation. You may also find that your urine has a strong odor or cloudy appearance.

If you are concerned about a UTI, then you should talk with a health care provider right away. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we can quickly diagnose a UTI by analyzing a urine sample in our on-site lab. We will examine your urine under a microscope to check for bacteria or white blood cells, which are a sign of infection. After diagnosing a UTI, we can provide appropriate treatment to help clear it up quickly.

How Is a UTI Treated?

Treatment for a simple UTI usually involves a short course of antibiotics. If we prescribe antibiotic medication for you, you may find that your pain and urinary urgency go away right after you take your first few doses. Even so, you should still complete the full course of antibiotics as prescribed. If not fully treated, your UTI may return. Additionally, you should drink plenty of fluids while you are being treated for a UTI. This will cause you to urinate more frequently and help flush the bacteria out of your urinary tract.

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we provide UTI treatment on a walk-in basis—no appointment necessary. Just stop by our urgent care center in West Hartford whenever it’s most convenient for you—we’re here 365 days per year.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
