Affordable UTI Treatment

urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra.

Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than are men.

A urinary traction infection (UTI) is a very common type of infection in your urinary system.

A UTI can involve any part of your urinary system, including the urethra, ureters, bladder and kidneys.

Symptoms typically include needing to urinate often, having pain when urinating and feeling pain in your side or lower back.

Most UTIs can be treated with an antibiotic.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most prevalent infectious diseases with a substantial financial burden on society. In the USA, UTIs are responsible for over 7 million physician visits annually, including more than 2 million visits for cystitis.

Most UTIs can be cured. Bladder infection symptoms most often go away within 24 to 48 hours after treatment begins. If you have a kidney infection, it may take 1 week or longer for symptoms to go away.

A. No, bacteria that cause bladder infections are not passed from one sexual partner to another

Stress by itself doesn't cause UTIs, but it can make you more susceptible to infections and other illnesses by harming your immune system. Stress can also trigger or worsen urinary tract symptoms — even if you don't have a UTI.
