UTIs during pregnancy

UTIs during pregnancy

Urinary tract infections or commonly referred to as UTI are common troubles during pregnancy. Pregnancy hormones lead to changes in the urinary tract which expose it to infections. As the uterus grows, it presses on the bladder and can lead to trouble in emptying the bladder; this stagnant urine is a potential source of infection and may lead to kidney infections. Urinary tract infections, if not treated timely can lead to complications such as the infection spreading to the kidneys and causing premature labour.

Symptoms of UTI: Burning feeling during urination. Cramps or pain in lower abdomen. Pain during sexual intercourse.  Frequent and difficulty while urination. If you feel these problems, seek medical advice immediately.

Treatment: Urinary tract infections are usually treated by antibiotics. Doctors prescribe a 3-7 day course of antibiotics which is safe for you and your baby. Contact your doctor if you have fever, lower stomach pains, nausea, chills, vomiting, contractions, or if you still have a burning feeling when you urinate after taking medicine for three days.

Prevention: Develop a habit of drinking 6-8 glasses of water daily and unsweetened cranberry juice regularly. Take Vitamin C, Beta-carotene and Zinc to help fight infection. Urinate as soon as the need is felt. Urinate before and after intercourse. Keep your genital area clean.

Drink lot of water and maintain hygiene to ensure you are safe from UTIs during pregnancy. Enjoy your Pregnancy!
