Information on Urinary Tract Infections

The term, Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), generally refers to a bladder infection.

Symptoms of a UTI are usually burning or pain with urination, as well as frequency, urgency, and sometimes blood in the urine.

A UTI is often treated with only 3 days of antibiotics or less.

Incontinence Information

Incontinence (urine leakage) is a symptom with various underlying causes.

For correct treatment, see a urologist who can determine the underlying cause of the incontinence.

Incontinence is not a normal part of aging, but age may predispose people to factors that may cause it.

Surgery is not the only treatment for incontinence- in fact, usually this is not indicated. Most often, medication, exercises, or seeing a physical therapist who treats pelvic floor dysfunction can relieve the sysmtoms.
