What You Need to Know About UTIs

The unfortunate occurrence of urinary tract infections and what you can do to prevent them

-Lissa Rankin, Betty’s OB/GYN on Call

Urinary Tract InfectionHave you had a urinary tract infection (UTI) before? If you have, chances are you’re cringing right now, tempted to cross your legs and hold your pee-pee with both hands like a little girl who really has to go. Anyone who has experienced it knows that UTIs are no fun, and since they affect about 8-10 million people per year, many of us have been there.

How do I know if I have a UTI?

The most common UTI symptoms include urinary frequency (you feel like you have to go, even when you just emptied your bladder), dysuria (burning when you urinate), and hematuria (blood in the urine). UTIs that ascend to the kidney to cause pyelonephritis can cause fever, back pain, and sometimes, nausea/vomiting, in addition.

    I didn’t know about Vitamin C! I’m not a big fan of cranberry juice so now I can mix it up

    blueberry juice works really well for UTI’s! Flushes out your system quicker and more effectively than cranberry juice.
