Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
Our UTI trial is for females 12 years of age and older who currently have symptoms of an urinary tract infection. There is a total of 4 office visits and lasts for approximately 1 month. You are compensated for your time and are provided medical care free of charge. There are no overnight visits and we offer flexibility in scheduling your clinic appointments.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are bacterial infections in any part of the urinary system consisting of the bladder, kidneys, ureters, and urethra.
UTIs commonly occur in the lower urinary system when bacteria enters the urinary tract through the urethra and into the bladder. If the body's natural defense isn't able to fend off this bacteria, it will then grow into a urinary tract infection.
Causes and Symptoms
Anyone can get a UTI but you are more likely to have one if you:
• Are a female
• Have a condition that affects your bladder's nerves
• Use certain types of birth control
• Are overweight
• Have had a previous UTI
Symptoms of a urinary tract infection include:
• Pain or burning with urination
• Lower abdominal pain
• Strong or foul smelling urine
• Lower back pain
• Passing frequent/urgent small amounts of urine
• Abnormal urine color (cloudy urine)
If the infection goes untreated it can spread up to the ureters (the tubes connecting the bladder to the kidneys) into one or both of the kidneys which then becomes a more serious infection. If you have symptoms of a fever, chills, or nausea it may be a kidney infection and you should be seen by a doctor right away.
