What is a Urinary Tract Infection?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of the urinary system which includes your kidneys, urethra, bladder and ureters. A majority of urinary tract infections occur in the lower part of the urinary tract, specifically the bladder and urethra. Urinary tract infections are more common in women because of the female anatomy.

Symptoms of a Urinary Tract Infection

If you are suffering from a urinary tract infection you may not experience any symptoms, but if you do, these are some of the common ones you may experience:

  • Increased and more frequent urge to urinate
  • A burning feeling while urinating
  • Only urinating small amounts
  • Cloudy or unusually colored urine
  • Urine with a strong smell

In urinary infections specifically in the kidneys, you might experience:

  • Back pain
  • Fever
  • Shaking or chills
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t wait any longer. Visit AM/PM Walk-in Urgent Care today. No appointment necessary. Just walk right in!

Diagnosing and Treating a Urinary Tract Infection

To diagnose a urinary tract infection, a urine sample will be taken by the staff at AM/PM Walk-in Urgent Care and tested right away. A urinalysis will reveal signs of infection if you have a UTI and the results will be available in a few minutes. Because UTIs are caused by bacteria, you will likely be prescribed an antibiotic.

If you have any suspicions that you may be dealing with a urinary tract infection, don’t put it off. Untreated UTIs can complicate treatment. Visit AM/PM Walk-in Urgent Care today.
