How do doctors diagnose a urinary tract infection?

Posted by: admin  :  Category: urinary tract infection

I've researched that it's a painful burning sensation. But for urinary tract infections, is the burning only when you pee, or does the burning occur constantly?

Also, at the doctors, how do they check for urinary tract infections? Do they actually check the vagina?

It is a burning feeling while you are urinating, and you feel like you need to go constantly. You simply go to the lab at your doctors office, give them a urine sample,{pee in a cup} and the technician will check it for bacteria. Depending on the type of bacteria, your doctor will prescribe an antibiotic for you. When I get one, which is often, I don't even see my doctor, he just calls in my prescription. Don't be scared and good luck.

    They just check a urine sample to see if there are white blood cells or blood in it. You just go into the bathroom and pee in a sterile cup and give it to the nurse.Sometimes,you can just take a sample to your nurse and wait while they check it.If you have an infection,they will prescribe antibiotics.

    If your history (pain and burning sensation on urinating) suggests a urinary track infection, the doctor will ask for a clean , fresh urine sample – half ounce is enough. He then uses a rapid Dipstick with colored small squares which separately tell him if bacteria and white blood (pus) cells are present. If the strip colors are positive, the doctor knows that the most common bacteria is called E.coli and will immediately prescribe an antibiotic that should cure almost all infections. A culture is only necessary later if the antibiotic doesn't work. Don't postpone the visit and start of antibiotic, if needed, as suspected.

    Doctors check for UTI by taking a urine sample. It does burn really bad when you pee. It shouldn't burn constantly
