You may have a urinary tract infection (UTI). Your urethra, bladder, ureters and kidneys could all be involved in a UTI. Antibiotics are often needed to treat these painful infections - but what if the antibiotics worked briefly and now you’re in the same world of hurt, again?
If you're a woman or born with female anatomy, your chance of getting a urinary tract infection is high. Some experts rank your lifetime risk of getting one as high as 1 in 2, with many women having repeat infections, sometimes for years or indefinitely.
The UTI Health Alliance is a tool for education, awareness and community about your rights as a patient and some of the resources available to you. Watch the video below to hear the heart behind why we do what we do.
