Can Men Get UTIs?
While women are much more prone to developing urinary tract infections (UTIs) than men, men are not immune to these troublesome and sometimes dangerous infections. UTIs are very rare in young men, but the risk of infection increases with age. In fact, men over the age of 50 are much more likely to develop a urinary tract infection.
At Goodbye UTI®, we offer a safe, effective, and fast-acting alternative to prescription medication to treat urinary tract infections. Our natural health solution works to improve and maintain your urinary tract health. Contact us today to learn more about our dietary supplement and order yours today.
Risk Factors for Men
While age is one of the primary factors that put men at an increased risk for developing a UTI, there are a number of other factors that can impact their health as well, including:
- An enlarged prostate gland
- Kidney stones
- Bladder catheter insertion
- Conditions that affect the immune system
UTI Symptoms in Men
While some men will not experience the typical symptoms of a UTI, or even any symptoms at all, the majority do show at least a few of the signs of infection. A urinary tract infection usually involves inflammation of the bladder, which can easily turn into an infection in the lower or upper urinary tract, and sometimes the kidneys as well. When the infection reaches the kidneys, it can become very serious.
The symptoms are fairly similar to what women experience, including:
- Frequent, urgent trips to the bathroom
- Strong, constant urge to urinate
- Releasing small amounts of urine at a time
- Urine that is cloudy or foul smelling
- Bloody urine — can be pink, bright red, or cola-colored
- Lower abdominal pain
- Burning or pain during urination
Urinary tract infection tests can be purchased at your local drug store. These test strips provide a simple first step to finding out if a UTI is present, but it’s important to know that they are not as comprehensive and reliable as the tests your doctor can perform. In order to confirm that you have a UTI, as well as the type, contact your doctor so that a diagnosis can be made and you can begin treatment as soon as possible.
