Urinary Tract Infection

A urinary tract infection (UTI) or bladder infection can be unbearable and often progresses rapidly. Prompt treatment of a UTI can relieve your symptoms and prevent complications. Studies have shown that the presence of certain symptom combinations alone can accurately diagnose a UTI without laboratory testing. ($35)

What causes a UTI?

  • Bacteria travel to the bladder and cause an infection
  • More common in women for anatomic reasons
  • Increased sexual activity and holding urine increases the risk of a UTI
  • Some women are prone to recurring UTIs

What are some features of uncomplicated bacterial UTIs?

  • Burning, frequency, and/or urgency associated with urination
  • Lack of fever, chills, aches, or back pain
  • Absence of vaginal pain, burning or discharge
