Yes: Urgency can certainly be associated with a urinary tract infection, especially if these symptoms occurred suddenly. Call your doctor to set up a urine lab test.

Yes: Ruling out a urinary tract infection with a urine culture should always be the first step in evaluating urinary urgency or urge incontinence.
