>>Urine Screen for UTI

Urinary Tract Infections are one of the most common reasons for young adults to visit their GP, especially girls.

There may be no identifiable symptoms, you just may feel generally unwell but the following are associated with UTIs and the presence of any one may be an indicator:

  • Mild fever
  • A general feeling of shakiness and fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Burning or pain during urination
  • The feeling of having to pee even though little or no urine actually comes out
  • Pain in the lower abdomen
  • Pain above the pubic bone (in women)
  • A full feeling in the rectum (in men)
  • Bloody or foul-smelling urine

It is an important test that may rule out a kidney infection, this may involve more serious symptoms, including:

  • High fever
  • Chills
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Cloudy or bloody urine
  • Pain in the back, just above the waist
