What should I do if I suspect I have a urinary tract infection in pregnancy?

The ideal is to consult a doctor. A urine culture should be performed and if it is positive, antibiotics should be started. With the result of the urine culture, check whether the germ is sensitive or not to the antibiotic.

If the urine culture is normal but the patient has urinary symptoms, treatment should also be given.

Any urinary tract infection in a pregnant woman should be well treated to avoid possible complications.
