A urinary tract infection (UTI) can be uncomfortable and disruptive. More common in women than in men, this kind of urological disorder (also called a bladder infection) is usually noted by burning or painful urination, the frequent urge “to go,” cloudy urine, or bloody urine. A UTI typically occurs when bacteria such as E.coli enters into the urethra. Women who are pregnant, sexually active, or in their senior years tend to get UTIs more frequently.

We can diagnose your condition with a simple test and prescribe antibiotics if necessary. Be sure to drink plenty of water to help dilute your urine and aid your body in the flushing out of bacteria from the urinary tract and bladder. It’s extremely important to note that if you’re experiencing any symptoms accompanied by fever, nausea, vomiting, and pain near your flanks that you seek help and call us right away. It could mean that the infection has grown and spread into your kidneys with the potential to become a more serious condition.
