You may not realize this, but UTI’s are the second most common infection in the body. A prevalent infection is especially common in women. The term UTI is used as a general name for a group of infections that can strike anywhere in your urinary tract. Your urinary system includes the kidney, bladder, urethra, and ureters. While a women’s anatomy puts them more at risk for UTI’s, men can develop them too. Being sexually active, having an immune system deficiency, catheter use, urinary tract abnormalities, blockages, post-menopausal, and certain types of birth control are also other risk factors to consider. Generally, the infection is caused by bacteria when it enters the urinary tract system through the urethra. Often, sexual intercourse is usually how the bacteria can get in to cause an infection. With that said, people who are not sexually active can still get UTIs.

At AFC Urgent Care Center in Easley, we often see two types of infections when it comes to UTI’s. Our physicians at our walk-in medical center are very experienced in diagnosing and treating these infections. Cystitis is the infection of the bladder. Urethritis is the infection of the urethra and is caused by gastrointestinal bacteria. Sexual Transmitted Infections (STI) such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, and herpes can also lead to urethritis. To determine the proper treatment, our doctors will require a urine sample. Using our onsite state of the art lab, we will be able to process your test quickly. We will diagnose and send you on your way with a treatment to get you back on the road of recovery. No appointment is needed to be seen or evaluated by our medical providers.
