A UTI occurs when a component of the urinary system – usually the urethra or bladder – becomes infected. The symptoms of a UTI may vary according to the location of the infection, but most often include:
- A burning sensation during urination
- A frequent urge to urinate, even when the bladder is empty
- Urine that is unusually cloudy or dark, or has a reddish hue
- Persistent pelvic discomfort, particularly around the pelvic bone
Some people believe drinking cranberry juice or taking supplements can help treat a UTI, but there is no substantial evidence to support this claim. If you have symptoms of a UTI, it is important to seek treatment from a medical professional as quickly as possible. If left untreated, the infection can potentially spread to your kidneys and cause more serious problems.
