Are there any other times I should see a doctor in person about my UTI symptoms?
print icon

Sometimes the symptoms of a UTI can be similar to other conditions, for example:

  • A sexually transmitted infection, eg. Chlamydia
  • Diabetes (passing larger amounts of urine than normal & excessive thirst)
  • Kidney stones (spasms of pain in the back or groin)
  • Kidney infection (fever/chills, flu-like-symptoms, tummy pain, back pain)
  • Thrush (itchy vulva, sometimes a discharge or odour)Recurrent UTI (3 or more UTIs in 1 year).

Also, anyone experiencing 3 or more UTIs in a 12 month period, will need to have further tests.

If you’re worried it could be any of these things, it is best to see a doctor in person.
