Is It True?
Congratulations mlm. I want to ask. I have a history of urinary tract infections. And it recurs sometimes. now i am 21 years old. Will it be true that if I am married and pregnant, is it true that the child I will give birth to is premature? Thanks.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is caused by a bacterial infection, the symptoms of which are frequent BAK / anyang-anyangan, painful BAK, hot BAK, stinging urine, odor, lower abdominal pain, fever, and low back pain.
The test to confirm a UTI is by means of urine tests and blood tests if necessary. UTI management is with antibiotics with additional treatment to reduce symptoms such as pain relief and fever reduction.
In relation to preterm birth, not always pregnant women with a history of UTIs will experience premature birth. UTI is an infection that can completely heal, but it does not provide immunity for future infections. Thus, someone who has had a UTI, may or may not be reinfected.
UTI in pregnancy itself should be treated because if it is not treated there is a risk of infection of the kidneys, and this increases the risk of preterm birth. UTIs in pregnancy sometimes appear without symptoms, so doctors recommend that pregnant women perform routine urine tests during pregnancy. If the test results indicate a urinary tract infection, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment for pregnant women.
For now you don't have to worry. UTIs can be recovered tital with proper handling so that women with a history of UTIs can still have a healthy pregnancy and normal birth. The most important thing is to be diligent in carrying out pregnancy control with an obstetrician regularly so that the condition of the pregnancy and the fetus can be monitored.
