What Is a Urinary Tract Infection?
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a type of infection that occurs when bacteria works its way through the urinary tract and into the bladder or kidneys. While an infection in your bladder can be painful, an infection in your kidneys can have much more serious consequences. That’s why, if you believe you have a urinary tract infection, you should seek treatment immediately. Some common symptoms of UTIs include:
- A strong, persistent urge to urinate
- A burning sensation when urinating
- Only passing small amounts of urine
- Urine that is cloudy, red, or bright pink
- Urine that has a strong odor
- Lower or upper back pain or discomfort
- Passing small blood clots
- Fever or chills
If we determine that you have a UTI, we can treat it with an appropriate course of antibiotics or other prescription medications. What’s more, once you start your treatment, relief from the worst of the symptoms can happen quickly, usually within 24 to 48 hours.
