UTI Symptoms

Some people don’t have any symptoms with a UTI. However, most get at least one or some of the following:

  • an urgent need to urinate, often with only a few drops of urine to pass
  • a burning feeling when urinating
  • an aching feeling, pressure or pain in your lower abdomen
  • cloudy or blood-tinged urine
  • a strong odor to your urine

If the infection spreads to the kidneys and becomes more severe, you may also have:

  • pain in your lower back
  • fever and chills
  • nausea and vomiting

See your doctor right away if you have any of these symptoms.
