In brief: Cause and Treatment
It can be a serious problem that results in premature delivery or abortion.
If you were told of this you should immediately contact your obstetrician.

In brief: Preterm labor
Your chances of going into preterm labor are higher if you develop pyelonephritis so we treat it aggressively.
Your doctor may put you on a daily suppressive antibiotic after you have been treated to prevent another episode from happening.
