What is a Urinary Tract Infection?
A UTI is an infection that occurs in women when bacteria from the large intestine attacks the urethra. This can lead to problems in the bladder and sometimes the kidney as well. Nearly all women experience a UTI at least once in their lifetime, with about half experiencing them several times. Pregnant women are more prone to UTIs. Diabetic women also show a higher risk of having a urinary tract infection because their immune system is not able to fight the infection.
What Are the Symptoms of a Urinary Tract Infection?
The symptoms of a UTI include a burning sensation when urinating, a frequent urge to urinate, a numb pain in the lower abdomen, strange smelling urine, feeling excessively tired, and/or having a fever.
vConfidence doctors in Baton Rouge offer non-invasive treatment options that work quickly to treat urinary tract infections and alleviate symptoms as quickly as possible. A three-day antibiotic treatment has become the preferred course of treatment as it typically resolves uncomplicated symptoms in 1 to 3 days.
vConfidence Certified Doctors in Baton Rouge also offer an in-office procedure using tissue-regenerating radiofrequency lasers called fractional CO2 lasers that deliver energy into the vaginal canal. By inserting a probe, doctors are able to remove a small area of tissue without the patient experiencing any pain.
