Urinary tract infections are a group of infections that affect the urinary system or tract. The urinary tract is not just a part of the body but several internal parts that contribute to the formulation of urine like the bladder, urethra, kidneys etc.
These infections can be disturbing for any woman carrying them or suffering from one and if not attended to might also metamorphose into something more serious.
So, in this write-up, we are going to have a look at some of the signs of urinary tract infections every woman should take seriously.
The Following Are The Signs Of Urinary Tract Infections In Women
1. Painful Urination; this is actually one of the early signs of this problem. Once you start feeling constant pain anytime you want to urinate, there is a high chance you are suffering from a urinary tract infection and the earlier you get checked, the better for you as a woman.
2. Frequent Need to Urinate or Urgent Need to Urinate; this is another sign of urinary tract infections that should be looked into or rather taken seriously. If you notice a drastic increase in the urgency to urinate, then you may need to see a doctor for proper checkup and ways of handling the issues.
3. Abnormal Urine Color Or Foul smelling Urine; if you urine always looks cloudy and also smelly at the same time, there is every likelihood that you are suffering from urinary tract infection. Women are more prone to contracting UTIs because their urethra is far closer to the anus than men which makes it easy for the bacteria to make it’s way into their bodies.
4. Pain In The Side or Pelvic Area; constant pain in the pelvic area is another sign of urinary tract infection that should not be taken for granted. If you always feel pain in the pelvic area as a woman, don’t just slide it undernthe carpet because it could be due to urinary tract infections or more severe health problems.
