What Are the Symptoms of UTIs?
These are something we tend to associate with younger women, but they are just as common throughout life.
There are many signs something is not right, whether that’s more frequent urination, pain or something else and it helps to know whether you need to be concerned, or visit your doctor.
UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) symptoms
They do vary from woman to woman, and you may have just one or two symptoms or the whole range. If you have a urinary tract infection you may have:
- Pain or burning when you pee
- Pain in your lower belly, over the bladder (above your pubic bone)
- An urge to pee right away and often
- Only being able to pee out small amounts of urine at a time
- Low back pain
- Cloudy, bloody or bad smelling urine
If you have symptoms such as blood in your urine, a fever, chills, or nausea, it might be a more serious infection, such as a kidney infection, so call your doctor right away.
Also, a UTI during pregnancy is concerning. If you have symptoms, see your doctor immediately.
Because there can be a number of causes of UTI’s, it is essential to investigate any unusual symptoms. Certainly progesterone can be helpful and this article will give you more information about this distressing condition:
