Urinary Tract Infection- Symptoms and Treatments

Posted on January 9, 2019 at 1:30 AM

A urinary tract infection, commonly known as UTI, occurs when microbes get into any part of the urinary tract, be it the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra. In severe and rare cases, however, UTI can also happen in the upper urinary tract.

Now let’s get to know what are the causes and risk factors of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI):

  • Dehydration, since the body is not getting enough water to discard the bacteria
  • Sexual intercourse with an infected partner
  • Constipation
  • Using dirty sanitary pads during menstruation
  • Holding urine for a long time allows the bacteria to grow

Urinary Tract Infection can have specific symptoms depending on which part of the urinary tract has been infected:

Symptoms of Kidney Diseases:

  • High Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Frequent and painful urination

Symptoms of Bladder Infection:

  • Blood urine
  • Burning sensation while urinating
  • Pain in the lower back and abdomen
  • Pain during sex

Symptoms of Urethra Infection:

  • Burning sensation while urinating
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Blood in semen or urine in men
  • Discharge from the vagina in women

In case, you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above repeatedly, you need to visit a urologist for further evaluation. You’ll be asked to take a couple of tests to have a better understanding. If you are confused about how to get the right diagnosis at the right time, look no beyond.
