What Causes a UTI?
UTIs happen when germs get into the urinary tract. A UTI could be caused by sex, changes in the vaginal environment, using a diaphragm for birth control, not emptying your bladder completely, having a catheter or wiping back to front.
How to Prevent & Treat Urinary Tract Infections
When you come to Southcoast Health Urgent Care for UTI treatment, your doctor will take a sample of your urine to confirm the presence of bacteria and which antibiotic will be the most effective. Your doctor may prescribe oral antibiotics and medicine to help you feel more comfortable while you’re healing.
If you have three or more urinary tract infections in a year, your doctor may prescribe additional antibiotics to help prevent future UTIs.
If necessary, your urgent care provider can refer you to a qualified gynecologist nearby. Southcoast Health is a comprehensive network that can fully address your gynecological needs.
