TREATMENT FOR URINARY INFECTION

DON'T WAIT FOR THE SITUATION TO WORSEN

SYMPTOMS OF URINARY INFECTION

Do you currently suffer from at least two (2) of these symptoms?

If the answer is NO, make an appointment with your doctor to have a diagnosis adapted to your symptoms.

If the answer is YES, you may be suffering from a urinary tract infection. However, we must determine if you are eligible to receive treatment with ACCÈS INFIRMIÈRES.

DYSURIA
Difficulty urinating

URINARY FREQUENCY
More frequent urination than usual

HEMATURIA
Blood in urine or on toilet paper

MICTIONAL EMERGENCY
Urgent need to urinate

MICTIONAL BURN
Pain during urination

PERSISTENT ENVY OF URINATING
Continuous desire to urinate after urination

Do these criteria apply to you and your situation?

If the answer is YES, you have contraindications. We suggest you to make an appointment with your doctor to receive a diagnosis and a treatment adapted to your symptoms and your health conditions.

If the answer is NO, you can probably receive treatment with ACCÈS INFIRMIÈRES.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

Make sure you want to urinate during the appointment by drinking a lot of water, because a urine sample should be taken to check for the presence of the bacteria causing the infection.

To drink a lot of water!
Drinking cranberry juice or eating cranberries can help reduce the urge to urinate.

Urinary tract infection is normally easily treated with antibiotics. Symptoms are often improved in the first 24 hours. Even if the symptoms are no longer present, the prescribed treatment must be terminated.
