Urinary Tract Infections

A urinary tract infection is typically a bacterial infection of your bladder.  A urinary tract infection can spread to other parts of your urinary tract like your ureters (the tube that connects your kidneys to your bladder) and your kidneys.


Symptoms of a urinary tract infection are burning during urination, lower abdominal pain, blood in your urine, urinary frequency, back pain, cloudy urine.


Women

  • Urinary tract infections are common in women.  This is because the urethra (the hole you pee out of) is very close to the rectum (the hole you poop out of).  E-coli is a bacteria found in stool (poop) and is usually the cause of urinary tract infections in women.

  • Sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea and chlamydia can also cause urinary tract infections.

Men

  • Urinary tract infections are not as common in men than in women.  This is because the urethra (the hole you pee out of ) is much further away from the rectum (the hole you poop out of).  

  • Sometimes other urinary problems can cause infection like an enlarged prostate which can lead to urinary retention in men.  Urinary retention happens when you are unable to completely empty your bladder.  Urinary retention can put you at risk for urinary tract infections. 

  • Urinary tract infections in men can be caused by E-coli or sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea and chlamydia

Urinalysis

  • A urinalysis is a test that we offer in our office and it take a few minutes to get the results.

Urine Culture

  • If we suspect you have a urinary tract infection, we can send your urine to the lab to be cultured.  A urine culture tells us what kind of bacteria is in your urine so we know which antibiotic to prescribe.
