When left untreated, urinary tract infections (UTIs) can result in many unwanted side effects including pain during urination and intercourse. These infections are extremely common among women today, and that is why vConfidence is devoted to providing patients with some of the most effective non-invasive UTI treatment options in the world.
What Are Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)?
Many doctors believe that over 50 percent of all women will experience a UTI at some point in their lives. A woman’s body has many different natural mechanisms to flush out unsafe bacteria, but there may come a time when bacteria from the intestines makes its way into the urethra. If the bacteria is not flushed out by urine, then an infection can occur. Untreated UTIs can also travel up into the bladder and eventually damage a number of different organs.
How to Diagnose a UTI?
For most healthy women who are not pregnant, simply exhibiting the symptoms of a UTI will allow us to make an accurate diagnosis around 90 percent of the time. That includes dysuria, lower abdominal pain, and tenderness.
Collecting a midstream urine culture is another option for diagnosing a urinary tract infection. This style of urine culture collection is one of the most common diagnostic tools for this particular medical condition, and it is extremely accurate when done correctly. Patients who carefully follow the collection instructions have a very low risk of contamination from introital bacteria. Women should first wash with an antiseptic solution, and then catch midstream urine for the culture sample.
How Does vConfidence Perform UTI Treatment?
In order to treat UTIs, the team here at vConfidence utilizes either fractional CO2 lasers or tissue-regenerating radio frequency technology. Both of these treatment options are in-office procedures, and most patients recover almost immediately. During your procedure, a team member will insert a small probe into the vaginal canal to deliver short bursts of energy. After the procedure, your body can begin the process of repairing the tissue by producing additional collagen fibers. This form of vaginal rejuvenation treats many of the leading causes of UTIs by reversing vaginal atrophy.
Our team is proud to offer locals some of the most effective UTI treatments that are currently available. Please contact us today if you are ready to finally overcome your UTI and begin living an active and healthy life once again.
