INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE A URINARY TRACT INFECTION DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is a urinary tract infection?

A urinary tract infection or UTI is a bacterial infection in the urinary system. An infection in the bladder is called cystitis and an infection that has moved up the urinary tract into the kidneys is called pyelonephritis.

 

Women in general are prone to urinary tract infections, with up to half of women having at least one infection during their lifetime. Women are not necessarily more prone to infections during pregnancy but if an infection does occur, it is more likely to be pyelonephritis (kidney infection) and to reoccur.
