Know the Signs of a UTI

How your providers in Trophy Club, TX, can help you get relief from a urinary tract infection.

A urinary tract infection, also known as a UTI, can be uncomfortable. Fortunately, a UTI is also easily treated by your provider. The providers at Trophy Club Family Medicine in Trophy Club, TX, offer comprehensive medical care, including treatment for a UTI.

So, how do you know if you have a UTI? According to the Mayo Clinic, these are some of the most common signs and symptoms:

  • An urge to urinate frequently
  • A burning feeling when you urinate
  • When you urinate, urine comes out in small amounts
  • Your urine is cloudy, dark, or red
  • Your urine has a strong smell
  • You experience persistent pelvic pain

There are several easy things you can do to help prevent urinary tract infections. Remember to:

  • Drink lots of liquids to flush out bacteria
  • Wipe yourself from front to back after a bowel movement to prevent bacterial contamination
  • Urinate immediately after intercourse to help flush out bacteria

If you experience a UTI frequently, you should also avoid feminine hygiene products like deodorant sprays, which can irritate your urethra.

It may be tempting to wait and see if your urinary tract infection will go away on its own, but there are important reasons why you should seek out medical care. An untreated UTI can cause permanent damage to your bladder or kidneys.

To diagnose a UTI, your provider will order lab tests, including a urinalysis, to find out which bacteria are causing your infection. Once your provider determines the cause of your UTI, treatment can begin, which typically involves taking antibiotics for a period of time.

You don’t have to suffer the pain of a urinary tract infection when help is just a phone call away. To find out more about signs, symptoms, and treatment for a UTI, call the providers at Trophy Club Family Medicine in Trophy Club, TX, at (817) 430-9111 today!
