What Causes a Urinary Tract Infection?
A typical urinary tract infection is caused by bacteria, the most common of which are Escherichia coli bacteria. Additionally, a UTI can be caused by bacteria from the GI tract. Woman are at a high risk of cystitis, an inflammation of the bladder, as a result of this condition. Inflammation can be especially irritating as it will cause pelvic pain that can persist if the UTI isn’t treated quickly.
How Serious is a Urinary Tract Infection?
Left untreated, a urinary tract infection can pose serious health risks. One of the most common risks is the recurrence of infections, especially in women.
A prolonged infection can lead to permanent kidney damage and potentially sepsis that can be life-threatening. Women who have a UTI while pregnant are at a higher risk of premature delivery. For these reasons, it is essential to come in for treatment as soon as signs of a UTI begin to crop up.
