How To Know That You Have Urinary Tract Infection With These Signs And Symptoms

Burning with urination and having an urge to urinate in the absence of vaginal discharge and significant pain is the common cause of lower urinary tract infection and also known as a bladder infection. These symptoms may vary from mild to severe, if the women are healthy it will last an average of six days. Some pain above the pubic bone or in the lower back may be present. People experiencing an upper urinary tract infection may feel a flank pain, fever, or nausea and vomiting in addition to the classic symptoms of a lower urinary tract infection. Sometimes or rarely the urine might appear bloody or contain some pus.


The sign of urinary tract infection in young children may only be a fever and because of lack of obvious symptoms, the female under the age of two or uncircumcised males less than a year exhibit a fever, a common routine is to get used urine culture. (Urine culture is used to diagnose a urinary tract infection (UTI) and to identify the bacteria or yeast causing the infection.) On infants they may feed poorly, vomit, sleep more, or show signs of jaundice. In older children, new onset urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control) may occur.


Urinary tract symptoms are frequently lacking in the elderly. The presentations may be vague with incontinence, a change in mental status, or fatigue as the only symptoms, while some present to a health care provider with sepsis, an infection of the blood, as the first symptoms. Diagnosis can be complicated by the fact that many elderly people have preexisting incontinence or dementia.
It is reasonable to obtain a urine culture in those with signs of systemic infection that may be unable to report urinary symptoms, such as when advanced dementia is present. Systemic signs of infection include a fever or increase in temperature of more than 1.1 °C from usual, chills, and an increased white blood cell count.

How do we get UTI (Urinary tract infections)?

We have a defense mechanism called the urinary system designed to keep out microscopic invaders but this mechanism sometimes fails and when that happens the bacteria may take hold and grow into a full-blown infection in the urinary tract that causes UTI (Urinary Tract Infection).
