Frequently Asked Questions
Does urine smell different during UTI?
A UTI can cause bacteria from the infection to contaminate the urine, resulting in a distinct fishy smell. UTIs are more common in women than men. Other symptoms include urine that is cloudy or bloody.
How many days does UTI take to heal?
Most UTIs can be cured. Bladder infection symptoms most often go away within 24 to 48 hours after treatment begins. If you have a kidney infection, it may take 1 week or longer for symptoms to go away.
What can trigger a UTI?
This can happen during sexual activity. It can also be caused by chlamydia, gonorrhoea, or other organisms. Although UTIs aren't spread from one person to another like STDs, having sex can lead to or worsen UTIs.
