UTI Treatment & Diagnosis

How are UTIs treated?

Because they are caused by bacteria, the most effective treatment for UTIs is taking antibiotics.
 
Start treatment by testing with a Scanwell UTI Self Test Kit and if needed, our doctors can prescribe same-day antibiotics.

Can UTIs be self treated?

Many women swear by cranberry juice, probiotics or apple cider vinegar/herbal remedies to help fend off a UTI.

However, studies show that these home remedies have limited clinical efficacy in prevention or treatment of UTI's.

How do I know if I have a UTI?

The majority of UTIs can be detected with a urine test. Scanwell's UTI Self Test Kit and app work together to identify a UTI in 2 minutes.

Our test strips are the same as those used in urgent care, emergency rooms, and hospitals.
