Urine Infections

Removing a urinal blockage

Urine infections are common, with about 25% of males and 3% of females experiencing UTIs at some point in their life. Symptoms include a strong, persistent urge to urinate, fever or chills, as well as pain or vaginal bleeding/discharge. In many cases, the infection is less severe and resolves on its own within a few days. If you have no other symptoms but have been going to the bathroom several times a day for more than 4 hours with no results, then you may just be suffering from a bladder infection that will go away on its own without treatment. Antibiotics may be used to prevent complications of repeated infections, such as damage to the kidneys that can result from a UTI that was not properly treated.
A urinal blockage is a common cause of a persistent urge to urinate, which, if left untreated, can lead to a urinary tract infection. A bladder stone is a type of urinary stone that forms inside the bladder and is an extremely painful condition. Bladder stones form when minerals such as calcium and magnesium combine with certain molecules in the urine and form crystals. As these crystals become larger, they can begin to obstruct the passage from the bladder to the urethra that allows urine to exit the body. There are several possible treatments for a urinary infection in men and women, including increased fluid intake and medications.

The migration of any type of stone through the ureter into the bladder is known as retrograde ureterolithiasis. If there is no obstruction in the urethra, this type of stone may pass with urine in drainage or per voiding. In these cases, no treatment is needed unless there are other complications such as infections, blood in the urine or ongoing pain. There are several treatments for a bladder stone, including hydration and medications. Antibiotics may also be used to prevent repeated infections, such as complications to the kidneys that can result from an infection that was not adequately treated.

If a blockage occurs in the female urinary tract after childbirth or childbirth, it is known as the retained placenta. The placenta remains in the reproductive tract after vaginal delivery through either spontaneous expulsion or surgical removal. In some cases, it may become attached to other tissues such as the ureter and vagina as it travels through these areas. In this type of situation, there may be associated urinary tract infections and/or blood in the urine. The treatment for this condition is the surgical removal of the placenta.

Stones that form in the kidneys are known as renal stones. Although they can be found in any area of the kidney, most are found in either the calyces of the renal pelvis. Symptoms depend on where they are formed and include flank pain, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, and fever or chills. The treatment for these stones will depend on their location. It may include medications to increase urinary output or reduce levels of various substances in the urine, dietary changes to reduce stone-forming substances, shock wave lithotripsy, ureteroscopy or percutaneous nephrolithotomy. In some cases, a combination of treatments is used.

Removal of a foreign object from the urethra is known as a urethral foreign body. This can be either an object that has been inserted intentionally or has been placed there accidentally. Several medical professionals may be involved, depending on the type and location of the object and its size. In many cases, general anaesthesia may be required to have complete relaxation during the procedure. Objects removed from the female urethra are usually small and may be removed with forceps or grasping forceps and irrigation with water or medications to shrink the tissue. Objects removed from the male urethra are usually larger and may be removed with a nephroscope, irrigation, grasping forceps or a scalpel.

A urologic infection is any type of infection that develops in the urinary tract. There are many different types of infections that can occur, including urinary tract infections (UTI) and kidney infections. The most common type of UTI is cystitis and occurs when bacteria move up from the bladder to infect the bladder wall. Symptoms include pain with urination, frequency of urination and blood in the urine.
