Urinary Tract: Yes, you may have a uti. Since you are having back pain, it may indicate that the infection has traveled to your kidneys. It is impmortant for you to see a doctor because antibiotics may be necessary to clear the infection and prevent damage to your kidneys.. To prevent uti: drink lots of water, wipe front to back, urinate after sexual intercourse, do not use scented soaps or feminine products.
