Understanding and Managing Anxiety: Teldoc Can HelpDecember 8, 2023
Ditch the Waiting Room, Embrace the Screen: Top Reasons to Telehealth for Common ConditionsDecember 15, 2023
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are no laughing matter. That burning sensation, constant urge to pee, and lower abdominal pain can turn even the most optimistic day into a miserable one. But before you resign yourself to a week of hot water bottles and cranberry juice, know this: you’re not alone, and help is just a click away.
Why are UTIs so common in women?
Our anatomy plays a big part. Women have shorter urethras, making it easier for bacteria to enter the bladder, the most common site of a UTI. Hormonal changes, sexual activity, and even using harsh soaps can also tip the balance in favor of those pesky microbes.
Symptoms to watch out for:
- Frequent urination, even in small amounts
- Burning pain during urination
- Urgency to urinate, even when your bladder is empty
- Cloudy or bloody urine
- Lower abdominal pain or cramping
- Fever or chills
