Frequently asked questions about UTIs

What is a UTI?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that occurs in any part of your urinary system, which includes your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra.

50% of women will experience a UTI in their lifetime.

What causes UTIs in women?

Women have shorter urinary tracts than men, and this makes it easier for bacteria to enter the urinary system. Risk factors for UTIs include:

  • Sexual activity
  • Previous UTIs
  • Vaginal infection
  • Certain hygiene habits (like wiping from back to front, instead of front to back)

What are some common symptoms of UTIs?

  • Painful or burning urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Blood in urine
  • Cloudy urine
  • Strange-smelling urine

How do I know if I have a UTI?

The majority of UTIs can be detected with a urine test. Scanwell's UTI test kit and app work together to identify a UTI in 2 minutes. Our test works by detecting leukocytes and nitrites in urine, which are two common indicators of UTI.

The test strips we use are the same used in urgent care clinics, ERs and hospitals.

When should I take an at-home test?

As soon as something feels, looks, or smells off.

If you have a painful, burning feeling when you urinate, you have to go very often, or only small amounts of urine pass even when you have to go very badly, you should test, as these are common signs of a UTI.

How are UTIs 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 providing actual treatment. UTIs are caused by bacteria, so the most effective treatment for them is taking antibiotics.

What is a recurrent UTI?

For 30% to 40% of women who've had a UTI, the infection returns within a few months. This is called a recurrent UTI.

A lot of the time, the reason for getting recurrent infections has nothing to do with hygiene or habits. Genetics, medical history, menopause, and even your anatomy (women with shorter urethras are more prone to UTIs) can all be contributing factors to recurrent infections.

How can UTIs be prevented?

Taking D-mannose supplements, staying hydrated and practicing good hygiene can decrease your risk of getting a UTI. Whenever possible:
  • Urinate after sex
  • Wipe from front to back
  • Pee as soon as you feel the need; don't hold it in!
  • Take showers instead of baths
  • Avoid harsh or scented soaps
  • Wear cotton underwear (cotton is more breathable than synthetic fabrics, which can create the perfect conditions for UTI-causing bacteria)

I have reoccurant UTI's and I was skeptical of an app that can actually diagnose but I promise this truly works! I woke up with symptoms, tested my urine, and received results immediately.
