Do I Have a UTI?
You don’t have to be a clinician to know: Urinary tract infections (or UTIs) are a pain.
Whether you unfortunately have some experience in this department or find yourself navigating unfamiliar territory, when you suspect a UTI, you want relief – fast.
UTIs happen when unwelcome bacteria find their way into the urinary tract. These bacteria make their presence known through symptoms that are often distracting and even painful. This might include:
» Frequent urge to urinate
» Burning sensation while urinating
» Pain while urinating, cloudy or foul-smelling urine
» Blood in the urine
» Pelvic pain

Treatment for a UTI
Because UTIs are so uncomfortable, there’s nothing more frustrating than delayed treatment – that’s where CH Care OnDemand comes in. You’ll be connected to a healthcare provider from your desktop, tablet, or other mobile device within minutes.
Over the counter products and home remedies (like cranberry juice) can reduce symptoms, but might only provide temporary relief. The most effective (not to mention, quickest) treatment for a UTI is antibiotics. We’re available for a virtual office visit 24/7, and we can provide a prescription for your nearest pharmacy.
The sooner you begin taking your prescribed medication, the sooner your symptoms will subside.
What Happens If a UTI Is Left Untreated?
While a UTI may be painful, kidney infections are even more serious and can be life-threatening. Suffering from a kidney infection can feel like a continuation of the symptoms traditionally associated with a UTI. However, kidney infections also tend to cause fever, nausea or vomiting, lower back and pelvic pain, as well as noticeable blood or pus in your urine.
Don’t let embarrassment or procrastination keep you from getting the UTI help you need. Take your first step towards lasting relief with CH Care OnDemand.
