A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common bacterial infection that affects the urethra, bladder or kidney. Those who are pregnant or sexually active may be at a higher risk for UTIs.
The American College of Physicians notes the top warning signs for UTIs:
- Painful urination.
- Abdominal discomfort.
- Frequent urination.
- Bloody or cloudy urine.
The ACP recommends seeking medical care and discussing treatment options with your doctor.
