About UTIs

UTI is a condition that occurs when germs (called bacteria) enter the urinary tract and cause an infection. Most UTIs are bladder infections and often aren't serious when treated right away.

UTIs are most common in women and older adults and may be complicated by other conditions.

UTI Symptoms

Symptoms of a urinary tract infection can include:

  • Cloudy, pink or red urine
  • Fever and/or tiredness
  • Frequent urge to urinate with minimal outflow
  • Lower belly or flank pain
  • Pain or burning when urinating
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Strong smelling urine

UTI Diagnostics and Treatment

To diagnose a UTI, a MyCare 365 provider will test a sample of your urine to see if it has bacteria that cause infections. Your provider will also ask you about your health history and will perform a physical exam. If you have UTIs often, you may need more tests to find out why.

Antibiotics can cure most UTIs. You may also experience some relief from drinking lots of water and other fluids. If you suffer from frequent UTIs, we recommend that you avoid irritating feminine products; drink lots of liquids, especially water and cranberry juice; empty your bladder soon after intercourse; wipe from front to back, and consider changing your birth control. Birth control methods, such as diaphragms, cervical caps and spermicides, can increase your risk for frequent UTIs.
