Frequent UTI: What You Need to Know

UTIs are a common source of urinary problems in men and women of all ages.  Common symptoms of UTI include bladder discomfort, pelvic pain, burning with urination, urge to urinate, and constant need to urinate.  Some patients with urinary tract infections might notice blood in urine, have difficulty passing urine or have a sensation of incomplete bladder emptying. 

Fever is rare with simple UTIs but can occur if there is incomplete bladder emptying, kidney infection (pyelonephritis), prostatitis, or kidney stones.  Fever is a sign of severe UTI and requires prompt treatment.

Symptoms that men and women experience when they have a UTI are not specific to UTI. Other medical problems such as the overactive bladder, bladder stones, kidney stones, and bladder cancer can cause similar symptoms.

Urinary tract infections are very common. They are more common in women but become more common in men as men age.  Most UTI (urinary tract infections) are caused by bacteria but may also be caused by a fungus (Candida), viruses, and atypical bacteria.

UTI and Sexual Activity

UTI can occur as a result of sexual activity but many UTIs are not related to sexual activity. A number of different UTIs can be caused by sexual activity.  Vaginal, oral, and anal sex can cause UTI caused by different bacteria.  Urethritis is a type of urinary tract infection (UTI) that causes irritation, pain, discomfort, and possibly urethral discharge.

Some women are predisposed to UTI after sexual activity. A number of effective approaches can minimize the risk of getting frequent UTIs after sex.

What is UTI?

UTI is an abbreviation that refers to Urinary Tract Infection.  Urinary tract infection simply means an infection of the urinary tract. UTI can be a bladder infection, kidney infection, or urethral infection.  In men, bacterial prostatitis and epididymo-orchitis are often associated with UTI.  The causes of UTI in women are different than in men. Treatment of UTI in men is also different.

Symptoms of UTI

Symptoms of UTI vary depending on the organs involved. It is important to note that symptoms of UTI may be caused by many other conditions.  It is important to actually verify the presence of UTI before treatment as symptoms may be caused by other unrecognized medical problems.

A bladder infection can present with symptoms of bladder area or pelvic discomfort or mild pain, pain during urination, frequent urination, or difficulty urinating. It can also cause blood in the urine.

Kidney infection can present with flank pain, nausea, and vomiting, as well as fever.  Typically patients feel sicker when they have a kidney infection compared to a bladder infection.

Fever may or may not be present with a UTI.

Types of UTI.

Diagnosis of UTI

A positive urine culture is the standard method of diagnosing urinary tract infections in symptomatic men and women.  It is important to recognize that atypical UTI may not grow on urine culture.  STDs may be the source of UTI symptoms.  Some organisms, such as ureaplasma, require specialized testing. 

Imaging studies of the urinary tract can help to identify anatomical (structural) abnormalities that predispose to infections. Common tests performed for patients with recurrent UTI are bladder ultrasound with measurement of post-void residual volume, kidney ultrasound, or CT scan to evaluate for kidney stones, hydronephrosis, and other abnormalities.  Cystoscopy may need to be performed for patients with frequent UTI symptoms to evaluate the urinary tract anatomy.

best urology doctor
by on Feb 14, 2021

Dr Alex Shteynshlyuger is the best urology doctor there is. He is attentive, analytical, knowledgeable and skillful. Very confidential with a masterfully professional staff. I would not hesitate in recommending Dr Shteynshlyuger to the world because I am a satisfied patient of his.

finally able to enjoy life again
by on Dec 16, 2020

Dr. Alex absolutely changed my life and restored my faith in doctors. When my condition first started I saw four different urologists over a period of about 6 months. All four either laughed me out of their office saying there’s nothing they could do to help, that my pain was normal, or prescribed me something that did not help or made everything worse. I prepared to live my life (22 years old now) with chronic pain that made participating in every day activities extremely difficult. Finally after getting the courage to start looking for new doctors again I found Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger and decided to give his office a call. I proceeded to see him shortly after my call, and now a few visits and months later I am finally able to enjoy life again. Dr. Alex took the time to do the tests that other doctors did not even mention. He took different approaches, gave well explained answers to all of my questions, and made me feel like there are some doctors who really do care. On top of all of that he has some of the most helpful and kind staff I have come across. I cannot stress enough how thankful I am for Dr. Alex!

Care at NY Urology Specialists
by on Jul 06, 2019

I am a 54 year-old male who is extremely happy with my care at New York Urology Specialists. I came to see Dr. Alex out of near desperation after consulting with three other urologists. Literally over one night, I began experiencing severe penile pain and burning. None of the other urologists were able to help diagnose what my problem was and seemingly didn't take my problem very seriously. In fact, one of them specifically told me at it had nothing to do with my prostate. After 6 weeks of suffering, I saw Dr. Alex. He examined me and gave me some tests and lab work. He very quickly ascertained that my problem was due to an enlarged prostate. He proscribed medicine to deal with my pain in the short-term and keep my prostate size in check over the long-term. My problem quickly disappeared. Today, 5 years later, I feel great. Dr, Alex listens to you as a patient, takes your opinion and health concerns seriously and knows his field inside-and-out so that you can get proper treatment for your problem. I can't thank him enough for diagnosing and solving my malady - you sometimes can't appreciate a problem until you have it. Getting rid of it and getting back to normal is so important - I am so glad that I saw Dr. Alex for my problem.

Great follow ups
by on Mar 17, 2019

Overall, I am happy with the services provided by Dr. Alex and his office staff. They are second to none when regarding follow-ups and getting back to you promptly, which is definitely not always the case with specialists. Furthermore, living abroad, he has offered to continue to treat me via skype and through email, which has been hugely helpful considering the medical care where I live is not as comprehensive as in the United States.
