Understanding Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are common bacterial infections that affect the urinary system, including the bladder, kidneys, ureters, and urethra. UTIs can cause discomfort and inconvenience, but with prompt and appropriate treatment, they can be effectively managed.

Recognizing UTI Symptoms

UTIs can present a variety of symptoms, including a frequent urge to urinate, burning sensation during urination, cloudy or strong-smelling urine, pelvic pain, and even fever or chills. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to seek medical attention promptly.
