In brief: Change in urination

Symptoms of a bladder infection include the constant sensation of needing to pee, and when one does urinate, only small amounts come out.
One may also have discomfort with urination, blood in the urine, and urinary urgency. Once one has a uti, then it needs to be treated with antibiotics in a timely manner, to prevent the UTI from ascending to a kidney infection.

In brief: UTI IN FEMALES

The symptoms of UTI are pain while urinating, frequency, blood in the urine, fever some times and lower and upper abdominal pain.
If you have those symptoms you can drink more fluids and cranbury juice to flush out the infection and if it does not help see your doctor and have the urine tested and physical exam and appropriate treatment.
