How to Recognize Signs of a Bladder Infection

September 1, 2019


How to Recognize Signs of a Bladder Infection. Stop a bladder or urinary tract infection
in its tracks by learning what to look for and how to prevent it from getting worse. You will need Careful monitoring of symptoms
and a physician. Step 1. Check your frequency of urination. A swollen, infected bladder will make you
feel the urge to urinate more often. Step 2. Check for a burning sensation when urinating,
a common symptom of a bladder infection. Holding urine too long can encourage infection,
so go when you have to go. Step 3. Observe the color and smell of your urine. If your bladder is infected, urine may be
dark yellow or greenish, with a foul odor. If you take an over-the-counter drug for bladder
infections and painful urination persists, see your doctor immediately. Step 4. Check for throbbing pain in your stomach or
pelvic area, as this is indicative of an advanced infection. Step 5. Watch for blood in your urine and contact
your physician immediately to prevent further damage to your urinary tract. Step 6. Contact your physician for an accurate diagnosis. No two people are alike when it comes to infection
symptoms. Did you know Up to 30 percent of women will
get a bladder infection in their lifetime.

    That's fucking it, Howcast. you upload WAY too many videos at once. It fills up my subscription box, and the only way to get rid of them is to go through every fucking video you've uploaded and watch the first second of it, and then go to the rest of the videos on my quicklist, and there's ALWAYS TOO MANY.

    STOP THIS SHIT, ITS GETTING ANNOYING.

    Lol men can get them too by having sex with a woman who is infected.

    I had an infection for 3 months lol it was hell.. listen to this vid kids

  • Reply k_wrx_ October 8, 2009 at 3:34 am

    men can also get them if their urinary tracts (from the kidneys to the bladder or the bladder to its exit) are genetically narrower then they should be and it causes the urine to an extent to back up and also lead to infection.

    but its rare.

  • Reply N3rdForYou October 8, 2009 at 4:14 am

    oh really?? I didn't know that. I thought it could only be transmitted through sex.

  • Reply tuddyfruity4 February 13, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    @Lollypoplover79 that's not true- it can. first of all, any infection that is not treated and does not go away on it's own, will kill you. second, a bladder infection can very easily and very fast turn into a kidney infection which can also destroy your kindeys and/or kill you. bladder infections are serious, and must be treated by a doctor as soon as symptoms come up

  • Reply tuddyfruity4 February 13, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    @omnipotent1995 your comment makes no sense, using soap as lubricant would not cause a bladder infection. using soap is retarded for many reasons but not this one

  • Reply tuddyfruity4 February 13, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    @kimble445 why do "men" have to know- besides, men can get this too, it's just not as common and it's more serious if they get it

    goddamn, I'm 14 and female and I just got this. Believe me, it sucks. Luckily I caught it within four days, and got prescriptions for antibiotics today. But if you have these symptoms contact a doctor because after a while urinating will sting like a bitch and it will be hard to tolerate.

    @azraaell Yea I tried cranberry juice today and it helps me get better. I've been getting a lot better already since when I posted my comment. My sides were so sore I couldn't even walk or eat and I felt nauseous. Before that happened I thought it was no big deal, but then it got the better of me so I went to the hospital and it turned out to be a bladder infection.

    you know that i had a bladder infection too , i peed painful and it was with blood , for make your bladder better you should drink alot of water to take the infection off or go to a doctor or a hospital.

  • Reply 68buickwildcat June 15, 2011 at 4:32 am

    oh god I hate these infections! worse than a toothache! And fast moving too, as soon as you get a little 'squeek' that somethings wrong- get to your doctor-fast! I waited about 4 days and that was about 2 days too long! Most uncomfortable miserable feeling I ever had. Please please hope these meds work!

  • Reply Hannah June 17, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    I have a bladder infection. Was just given antibiotics today. There's constant pressure to pee, my kindey hurts & when I go & it gets to the end… it feels like someone has gotten a razor blade, sliced open my va-jay-jay and poured acid into it! So so painful. I recommend as soon as you notices something unusual to get it checked out.

  • Reply Matyme July 12, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    @legodude9078 You should just go to the doctor. I have gone maney times for this same reason and most of the time they just make you pee in a cup and then just give you some meds. You will feel so much better after leave the doctor's office.
