Means against infection
Fortunately, for the vast majority of women, a urinary tract infection is easily diagnosed and easily cured. Usually prescribed antibiotics, such as amoxicillin (amoxicillin).
“In 80-90 percent of cases of urinary tract infections, one dose of an antibiotic from one to four tablets per dose is enough to get rid of the infection and relieve symptoms, especially with the first, single manifestation of the disease, says Dr. Whitemore. Most doctors nevertheless prescribe a three-day or five-day course to guarantee a cure. This is much less than we are used to prescribing, but enough to avoid the likely complications of an upset stomach and the addition of a fungal infection.
If the infection occurred during pregnancy, it is still possible to be treated, but only with certain antibiotics, which are known to be safe for the growing fetus, Dr. Whitemore emphasizes. If not treated, then in 40 cases out of 100, a woman in the last third of pregnancy develops an infectious kidney disease. ”
