Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

A UTI is an infection of the bladder or kidneys. They are more common in women but can also affect men.

What to look out for:

  • Pain or burning when you pee
  • The need to pee more often
  • Blood in the urine
  • Fever, back pain, nausea, and vomiting are signs of a worsening infection

When to see a doctor:

A UTI almost always requires antibiotics from a doctor. Since it is not usually considered an emergency, visit an urgent care rather than an emergency room.

A few ways to prevent getting a UTI:

  • Drink more fluid to help flush bacteria out of your bladder.
  • Pee right after sex.
  • Drink cranberry juice or other cranberry products whenever possible.
