How long would a person need to have a urinary tract infection before the infection spread to their blood stream?

varies: That's a tough question to answer because everyone is different. An untreated UTI can ascend the ureters and involved the kidneys (pyelonephritis). This untreated can lead to sepsis (infection spread into blood). Timing can depend on many things such as anatomy, organisms involved as well as time that antibiotics are initiated. ...Read more

I am experiencing urinary dribbling and abnormal urine stream. Recently catheterized during surgery could this have caused my issues?

I am experiencing  urinary dribbling and abnormal urine stream. Recently catheterized during surgery could this have caused my issues?

Urethral stricture?: It sounds like you might have a urethral stricture, which on rare occasions might result from infection or irritation from a catheter. Prostate problems are the most common explanation overall, but uncommon at your age. For sure see your doctor soon about this; s/he probably will refer you to a urologist. ...Read more

Blad nck hypertrophy: Prostatitis is typically characterized by irritative voiding symptoms (yours are obstructive voiding symptoms) and pain. The dre very rarely is revealing in cases of prostatitis. You are too young for a typical enlarged prostate. Cystoscopy rules out urethral stricture. You probably have primary bladder neck hypertrophy. See a neurourologist to confirm. ...Read more

Get checked: You need to see your clinician for an evaluation and treatment plan. Maybe you have a bladder stone, maybe there is bladder muscle function problems, maybe its medication that you are taking. And there are many other possible causes. Do get checked. Thankfully, you are not having any other problems from it yet. Hope that helps. ...Read more

I am a 23 year old female. I was wondering if it was normal for my urine stream to be very strong?

I am a 23 year old female. I was wondering if it was normal for my urine stream to be very strong?

Not necessarily: As long as you have no burning when urinating or have red color (blood?) or other dark color or frequency of urination I see no need to be overly concerned. If you do have any of the above, make an appointment with your family physician. If by "strong" you mean malodorous it could be from the food you eat like asparagus. ...Read more

Hi there is normal for my urine stream or flow to be weak at the age of 41?

Watch for a while: Yes it is a bit early, usually prostate starts to enlarge at 50 year on wards. But I would not worry about it unless the symptoms become worse over the next 1-3 months in which case you will need a urologist to check your prostate gland. ...Read more

Cloudy urine at the beginning of my stream Then It Turns Normal Color? What causes this?

Cloudy urine at the beginning of my stream Then It Turns Normal Color? What causes this?

Cloudy urine: This can be due to dehydration, but commonly is due to the sudden change in the pH when it hits the toilet water causing materials otherwise soluble in urine to precipitate out. The may be multiple other causes, including infection, but if you are without symptoms would simply ignore this. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi there can u tell me if a male urine stream should.always be strong is a weak one normal?

Hi there can u tell me if a male urine stream should.always be strong is a weak one normal?

Always? How always?: As we age, men run risk of developing an enlarged prostate that may decrease urine flow and make it weaker than in one's youth. While it's part of aging, it's not normal if it bothers you. Your Family Doc or Urologist can discuss drug options to improve flow, perhaps surgery if necessary. In meantime, avoid antihistamines & decongestants which can aggravate issue. ...Read more

Good plumbing !: Most people are worried about a weak urine stream, but if you feel you urine velocity and perhaps volume is high, maybe take a look at your Hemogobin A1C and fasting glucose and see if you might be diabetic. In general a healthy urine stream is good and prevents urinary tract infections ...Read more
