What is a UTI?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that can occur in any part of your urinary system, but most commonly affects the bladder and urethra. Infection of the bladder is known as cystitis, and it’s typically caused by E. coli, a common bacteria found in our gastrointestinal tract. Urethritis, an infection of the urethra, is also caused by bacteria from the gastrointestinal tract, in this case spread to the urethra.

While some UTIs may not have symptoms, the most common symptoms include a persistent urge to urinate, and a burning feeling while passing urine. Depending on the type of UTI, symptoms could vary. A UTI that infects the bladder (cystitis) may cause lower abdomen discomfort and blood or discoloration in the urine, while a UTI of the kidneys (known as acute pyelonephritis) can come with fever, nausea, and pain in the upper back and side. A UTI can be painful and disruptive to your daily life, and can cause further harm if left untreated. Fortunately, most UTIs are highly treatable and symptoms can be resolved within a short period of time. It is important to seek treatment for your UTI from a medical professional as you’re able to.

How can I contract a UTI?

A UTI occurs when bacteria enters and spreads through the urinary tract. Since women have shorter urethras, they are more likely to contract a UTI, as bacteria has a shorter distance to travel to cause the infection. Many women will have one or more UTIs in their lifetime, and some will experience persistent or recurring infections. While sexual intercourse is one of the most common contributing factors, other risk factors for UTIs include complications with the urinary tract, a recent urinary-related procedure, or things like menopause or certain types of birth control. A weakened immune system or the use of a catheter, may also increase your risk of contracting a UTI.

Where can I go to get treated for a UTI?

A Primary Care Provider (PCP) or family physician can treat a UTI, most commonly with antibiotics. The doctors at AFC Urgent Care, St Petersburg, are qualified to treat UTIs. Diagnosis may involve testing of a urine sample, and testing the bacteria in your urine in order to determine which antibiotics will be most effective. Most UTIs will be resolved with antibiotics after a few days, but more complicated or repeat infections could require a different course of treatment or intervention.

Should I go to urgent care for a UTI?

An urgent care clinic like ours is a viable, quick option for treating your UTI. UTIs can cause pain and discomfort, and at AFC Urgent Care St Petersburg. An ER visit for a UTI can be costly and time consuming, whereas our clinic provides fast and efficient service.
