Bladder infection or uti

Common Questions and Answers about Bladder infection or uti


Avatar n tn Does anyone have or had a bladder infection (UTI) during pregnancy? What did u do to get rid of it without meds? Doctor refused to give meds and I'm glad she didn't.
Avatar n tn Yes, the urinary tract runs from the bladder to the kidney. So a bladder infection is a UTI. They are treated by antibiotics. You may be in the early stages and the burning pain hasn't started. If you 'know' something is wrong, make an appt. with your doctor and you'll do a urine test there. They culture it over 24 hours. I left an office being told I didn't have one but 8 hours later, they called to say it was now positive.
Avatar f tn I had a uti and never knew until i went to my doctors and had to pee in a cup. I guess some people never have symptoms while some do.
Avatar m tn It sounds very much like you have a UTI. Please don't leave it as it could get more serious and the pain can get really bad.
Avatar f tn I had a uti in my first trimester

4244557 tn?1371701336 So I got a bladder infection back in December. Took antibiotics but didn't do anything. Went to my family doctor on the 8th to get new antibiotic and got some. A week later I missed my period and hey we're pregnant. Stopped taking my antibiotic cuz it said not to take if pregnant, may be pregnant or breastfeeding. Even my doc knew I could be pregnant so don't know why he prescribed that. Now he won't prescribe anything else and I can't get rid of this infection.
Avatar n tn Just wondering if anyone if anone on the board has had a kidney infection, kidney stone, bladder, or urinary tract infection while pregnant. I have had around 10 stones and I am 29 years old. All of my stones were calcium so I am thinking that maybe the prenatal vitamin is stirring something up. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn A woman perform oral sex on me 4 months ago, all std tests were negative, saw a uroligist, primary care and std clinic and had everything done, he even suspected Prostatitis and tested for that with miner bacterial infection he perscribed Metronidaxole, said that would kill any STD along with the previous Doxycycline. He gave me the Cephalexin too? would all these antibiotics case male yeast infection or uti? I'm still getting uretha and bladder discomfort?
Avatar m tn Tuesday and Wednesday these symptoms all intensified and started having dull pain at the base of my penis or behind, either bladder or prostate, also after urinating I would feel a slight itch or tingle that would last a few seconds and would come and go without urination.
Avatar f tn Just seeing if anyone has or had a bladder infection in the early weeks of pregnancy. I'm almost 6 weeks and I'm constantly peeing (which I know comes with pregnancy already) but it's constant. I initially had my first prenatal visit made for November 6th. But they want to see me tomorrow instead. What do they do if I do have a bladder infection. I didn't think I could take meds?

Avatar f tn Hello Mommies & Doctors, I am 16 weeks with my 2nd.. Lately I've been having pain in my pelvic area. I wonder if that's indicating a bladder infection or UTI. I went to the ER yesterday for pelvic pain they did an ultrasound and urine check & everything came back normal according to my emergency room doctor. Please can you guys let me know if u ever experienced this.. also kind of hurts when bladder is full. No burning or anything.
Avatar f tn I'd call the Dr. Sounds like a UTI. Verrrry common during pregnancy because of the extra weight on the bladder your body cannot always properly empty the bladder, leading to infection. I'd reason to suffer. Until you call though cranberry juice has been known to help with UTI issues...wouldn't recommend anything OCT though.
Avatar m tn That is what I think you have a infection in your bladder or kidney. Make sure you go to the doctor so he can find out what's going on.
684257 tn?1247348812 Bladder stones is a possibility if you feel full and feel like urinating while lying down and cannot urinate when you try to. UTI is another possibility. Fungal infection can be a possibility. Well without a physical and urine tests not possible to pin point. Guess you will have to visit the doctor. In the meantime you can drink a lot of fluids which will have flush out any infection or even tiny stones. Try doing a ****** using betadine solution diluted in warm water.
Avatar n tn If you would like to pm me I can send you some links to information on IC , including a diet that is the crucial first step to healing a sore bladder from chronic infection or IC. Cranberry by the way is in the top 5 flare triggers for IC. Drama_ Queen is right that cranberry for a normal bladder is a good things for those of us with a weakened bladder lining it is the worst thing! A urologist is best to determine if you might have IC! Hope you feel better soon!
Avatar m tn I have just finished a 5 day course of Cipro prescribed over the phone by an oncall physician last weekend for a UTI. I had a non-specific UTI about 4 years ago. It was not gonorrhea or chlamydia as determined by my urologist. My main symptom this time, however, is not discharge or burning as it was last time. It is a feeling of fullness in my bladder. Could this be the medication causing this? I have a follow up this week.
587946 tn?1240925653 Some people have very frequent UTIs or a chronically infected bladder wall or kidney that needs daily suppressive antibiotics for months to resolve. Your UTI problem is separate from fibromyalgia. If this is not a simple UTI problem your Urologist will know how to work up other causes of your symptoms.
1318483 tn?1318347182 An infection anywhere along the line classifies as a UTI (urinary tract infection). UTI is a non-specific generic term. A bladder infection is a UTI. Not every UTI is in the bladder. Nitrofurantoin is the generic name for Macrodantin, an antibiltic commonly used to treat UTIs. I would have thought you would be beginning to feel better after four days on the antibiotic. If you are no better by tomorrow, definitely call the doctor to report this.
Avatar f tn Other than that, it can be due to could be due to UTI, cystitis (bladder infection), trapped wind or intestinal gas, constipation, anxiety or kidney stones. Investigations like blood tests (CBC, ESR), urine test, x ray, ultrasound or CT/MRI scan can be required to rule out the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn Drink pure cranberry juice like they said but...most women get a urinary tract or bladder infection due to wiping wrong (Always wipe front to back), and/or having sex & not going pee after. A lot of people do not know it but if u wash ur hands before & after going pee (dont quote me on exact %) i heard it decreased you chance of getting any infection, (esp bladder or a common cold) by 50%.
