-Typical conversation between 2 friends who most likely have: Fungal (Candidiasis) & Bacterial Urinary Tract Infections respectively. A urinary tract infection in the first place can simply be defined as "the presence of destructive micro-organisms (infection) any where in the urinary system"- see above images. Having read the above symptom analysis in conversational format as depicted in the above short fictional literature,let's conclude this short epistle with the "Don't-s" and what people should actually do when they experience such. God forbid-"not you"-we know but no knowledge is useless and you never know.
Never listen to any friend that advices you to use sachets of tetracycline or ampiclox and lime. Also do not go to a patent store to get antibiotics on self prescription. Herbal mixtures also do not work.
WHAT TO DO?
Simple!!!Upon notice of any of the above mentioned symptoms,commence liberal intake of water and book an appointment to see your healthcare provider as soon as possible. A test (urine analysis, microscopy, culture and sensitivity) will be conducted to confirm the actual micro-organism causing the infection and you will be treated inline with antibiotic specificity results or an expert knowledge of the exact agent;depending on causative bug identified. The clinician reserves the decision to start you on a broad spectrum antibiotic medication, if a bacterial infection is highly suspected.
NOTE: All of the mentioned symptoms must not be necessarily present before you seek expert clinical help and your partner must be tested and treated alongside,if need be.
This issue sounds very trivial but couples have presented to fertility clinics time without number because of carelessness with what might have seemed like a minor urinary tract infection;sexually transmitted or not. For more information, visit the reference below.
