UTI during Pregnancy – What You Need to Know

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) affect the urinary tract - comprising of kidneys, urethra and bladder. UTIs are a common concern during pregnancy. While typically they may not be a major cause of worry, they must be treated instantly to avoid other complications.

- May require lab tests
- Can be treatable

Self-Care & Preventive Measures:
Do not delay urinating when you feel the urge to. Also, drink enough water through the day to keep the tract clean. Avoid tight fitted pants. Instead, opt for comfortable clothing made from natural fibers like cotton. Keep your genital region clean but avoid applying chemical soaps in that region.

Your doctor may prescribe certain antibiotics based on your pregnancy plan.
