How to test and treat for a UTI

A urinary tract infection (also known as a UTI) can happen at any time. While women are typically more at risk of suffering from a urinary tract infection than men, either gender can be diagnosed with a UTI, and at any age.

If you believe you are experiencing signs of a urinary tract infection, our team at AFC Urgent Care on N Campbell Station road in Farragut wants you to seek treatment as soon as possible so that you can get your UTI cleared up promptly and get back to feeling better!

What Is a Urinary Tract Infection?

A urinary tract infection occurs when there is an infection somewhere in your urinary system, such as in the bladder, kidneys, ureters, or urethra. The infection may also show up in more than one of these places. Depending on the severity of your infection, you may experience intense pain or discomfort.

Typical Symptoms of a Urinary Tract Infection

  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Passing small amounts of urine at a time
  • Persistent urge to urinate
  • Blood in urine
  • Cloudy urine
  • Pelvic pain or discomfort
  • Strong-smelling urine

How Long Do UTI Symptoms Last?

How long a urinary tract infection may last depends on the severity of the infection and how promptly you seek treatment.

While most cases can clear up within a few days, more serious infections may take longer to completely go away.  Severe cases may also require a follow-up appointment to ensure the infection is taken care of.

Urinary Tract Infection Treatments

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Take antibiotics as prescribed.
  • Apply a heating pad to the abdominal area.
  • Take pain relievers if recommended by a doctor.

Although it is a commonly held practice, there is no definitive scientific conclusion that a cranberry supplement or cranberry juice will aid in clearing a UTI.
