Urinary tract infections FAQ


Urinary tract infections occur suddenly and make your general condition extremely uncomfortable. Rushing to get rid of the infections which cause so many inconveniences is a good idea when you are aware of your actions. The misconceptions people have about UTIs lead to complications, which are definitely worse than shaving mistakes.

1. Should I seek professional medical treatment?
Yes, absolutely. Although mild UTIs may resolve spontaneously, you put yourself at a huge risk by letting off the issue. Contact your physician immediately in case you have a high temperature; if you are pregnant, or diabetic. A clear diagnosis determines the kind of bacteria which caused the problem; therefore, you will address the root of the issue.

2. Should I complete the course of antibiotics in case I feel better?
Symptoms may disappear after a few days, but it usually takes five or more days for the bacteria to die off. Generally, it takes longer for men, that’s why doctors tend to write a 7 to 14 days prescription for them, which is going to be 5 to 7 days for women.

3. Can I heal myself by drinking lots of water?
You will definitely remove more bacteria from the bladder and alleviate the symptoms; however, you won’t get rid of the infection completely. It is just a great addition to the treatment plan. You can drink cranberry juice to help yourself overcome the infection, but it is not a good idea in case you have a history of kidney infections. Blood-thinning drugs don’t get on well with the cranberry juice.


Finally, remember to stay away from irritants like alcohol, coffee, and citrus containing drinks. Maintain your urinary hygiene and take vitamin C supplements to decrease the colonizing process of the bacteria.
