The usual treatment is simple.  Typically, clinicians will prescribe a short course of antibiotics. In many, UTIs will clear up quickly. Most times, it will clear up with no problems. This article will discuss urinary tract infection symptoms and treatment.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Symptoms

UTI symptoms include the following. For instance:

  • Firstly, people experience the urge to pass urine frequently.
  • In addition, one may need to pass urine urgently.
  • Also, one may feel burning or stinging while passing urine.
  • In addition, some may pass blood in the urine.
  • Lastly, most with experience discomfort in the abdomen.

Cystitis is much more common in women than men. In fact, this is because the urethra is shorter in females. It is also closer to the anus in females, too. However, there are other things that can increase the chances of having cystitis too. Such as:

  • Being pregnant
  • Being sexually active
  • If you use spermicide
  • Menopause
  • Have diabetes
  • If you have a catheter
  • Suffer from other abnormalities in your kidneys or bladder
  • Being immune-compromised by AIDS or chemotherapy

Treatment for UTI

Treatment for UTI includes the following. For example:

  • Symptoms often improve by themselves. But if they don’t, doctors will prescribe a short course of antibiotics. Typically, symptoms improve within a day or two. Be sure to complete all antibiotics.
  • In addition, for pain relief, people may also take paracetamol or ibuprofen.

To note, if you develop a fever, schedule another consultation with us. Also, do this if your symptoms also do not improve. Importantly, if you are pregnant, you should immediately book a consult for cystitis. Also, book a consultation for cystitis if you have other underlying medical issues. Importantly, do not wait for symptoms to improve on their own.

UTI Prevention

Methods for UTI prevention include the following. Such as:

  • Firstly, wipe your bottom from front to back after going to the toilet.
  • In addition, ensure that you pass urine after having sex.
  • Also, stay hydrated.
  • Lastly, avoid potentially irritating feminine products.
