What is a urinary tract infection?
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common bacterial infection of the urethra, the hollow tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. UTIs are more common in women than in men.
What are the symptoms of a urinary tract infection?
Symptoms of a UTI vary, but commonly include:
- Frequent urination
- Pain or burning during urination
- Urine that is dark or tinged with blood
- Pain or pressure in the groin or lower abdomen
- Nausea or vomiting
How is a urinary tract infection treated?
Because a urinary tract infection is caused by bacteria, it can be treated with antibiotics. Prompt treatment is important for a fast recovery. Consult a provider for diagnosis, and follow your provider’s instructions for antibiotic use.
