Frequently Asked Questions

What Causes UTIs?

UTIs are caused by bacteria that enter the urethra and the bladder, and result in an infection. E. coli, the bacteria normally found inside our intestines, is responsible for 90 percent of urinary tract infections.

What Are The Symptoms Of UTIs?

Symptoms of a UTI include:

  • A strong, persistent urge to urinate
  • Frequent passing of small amounts of urine
  • Cloudy urine
  • Foul-smelling urine
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Pelvic pain

What Is Best Antibiotic For Urinary Tract Infection?

In order to determine the most effective antibiotic for your UTI, your doctor will first need a urine sample to confirm that you have a UTI. Using the results from your urine test, the doctor can then decide which type of antibiotic will work best at clearing the infection, and how long you should take it.

How Can I Prevent UTIs? 

To lower your risk of developing a UTI, be sure to avoid the following:

  • Wiping from back to front 
  • Using spermicidal foam or condoms
  • Diaphragms

It’s good practice to:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Urinate immediately after sex (and before if you remember)
  • Take probiotics, cranberry or D-mannose supplements
