What is a UTI ?
A urinary tract infection is an infection that affects any part of your urinary system, such as your kidneys, bladder, urethra or ureters. A majority of the infections affect the bladder and the urethra, and typically women are more susceptible to a UTI than men.
What are some of the symptoms of a UTI ?
The common symptoms of a UTI could include pain or burning sensation during urination. You could also experience a frequent or intense urge to urinate, and sometimes very little comes out. More serious symptoms could include pain or pressure in your back or lower abdomen, feeling tired or shaky, fevers or chills.
UTI vs. Bladder Infection
A bladder infection is a type of a urinary tract infection. This type of UTI is usually caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli), which is a type of bacteria commonly found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Sometimes other bacteria can be the cause. Some risk factors include:
- female anatomy
- birth control
- certain medications
- sexual activity
What is the treatment for a UTI?
If you have a UTI, your doctor will likely prescribe you a short course of antibiotics and possibly pain medication to help reduce the irritation. For women, antibiotics could make you more susceptible to get a yeast infection, so be sure to follow up with your physician.
