Urinary Tract Infections: Get Your Antibiotic Online!

Jul 26, 2023 | getting healthy

Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms:

  • Burning (dysuria)
  • Frequency (having to urinate more often than usual)
  • Urgency (stronger than normal urge to urinate)

These symptoms are the hallmarks of a UTI (Urinary tract infection) or a bladder infection.

A UTI is a bacterial infection usually caused by: E. coli, Klebsiella, or Proteus bacteria.

The infection is in the lining and wall of the urethra and bladder.  The infection irritates this lining and may cause blood to ooze from it, appearing in your urine as cloudiness or even redness.

A simple UTI does not cause: fever or vomiting or back pain.

Research studies in adult women have shown that women can accurately identify a UTI, without a urine test, as long as there aren’t complicating conditions, like: pregnancy, cancer, vomiting, vaginal discharge, or fever. 

If your symptoms fit, and you don’t have any of these conditions, a prescribed antibiotic is appropriate.

Getting antibiotic started early prevents the infection from working its way into your kidneys, which is harder to treat, makes you much sicker, and may damage your kidney function.

Which antibiotic?

I will recommend one that:

  1. steers clear of your medicine allergies.
  2. Is generally effective against the most common bacterial causes
  3. Is affordable
  4. Has a simple schedule, like twice daily for 7 days
