Again.....UTI.....

Salam and hello dear friendies....I have been absent for ages due to so many things tagging my life as a mommy, a wifey and an educator. I am back here to blog about myself being so uncomfortable with this Urinary Track Infection. This is my second time being diagnosed with such painful infection down under *~*
These are the symptoms that can lead to UTI : *I got this from The Mayo Clinic website*

- A strong, persistent urge to urinate (yes!)
- A burning sensation when urinating (I don't experience this)
- Passing frequent, small amounts of urine (yes, but the flow is ok for me as normal)
- Blood in the urine (hematuria) or cloudy, strong-smelling urine (yes, I have traces of
blood, but I don't smell anything weird)
- Bacteria in the urine, bacteriuria. (as being checked/screened...yes!)

I was prescribed with strong antibiotics to be taken twice for five days and some ibuprofens tablets as the painkiller. I really hope these meds will work well. I also was advised to drink plenty of water and cranberry juice as well as the sun-dried cranberries *yummy!*

For those who have been through this sickness...would you please share with me...and I'm begging for your advice....thanks! *hugs*

Hi Ummi, first of all, thank you for your CNY greetings and Gong Xi Fatt Cai to you too.

For me, I have minor UTI. Doc prescribed once Ural sachet for me and later I just got it from the pharmacy nearby.

I got very strong symptoms of UTI, no. 3. I will only pass little urine altho I have the urge to urinate.

Once I got the UTI, I just need to drink URAL and also plenty of water, then I will be fine.

Hope you will be fine too:-)
