Common Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary Tract Infection: Male Symptoms

It’s important to be aware of the symptoms of urinary tract infections so you can be properly diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Left untreated, a UTI can cause damage to your kidneys and cause pyelonephritis, a serious kidney infection.
Some of the common symptoms of UTI in males include:

  • A strong, constant urge to urinate
  • Urinating more frequently than normal
  • Waking from sleep to urinate
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Only being able to pass a small amount of urine at a time
  • Strong or foul-smelling urine
  • Bloody or cloudy urine
  • Lower back or abdominal pain
  • Leaking urine

Not all men will experience the same symptoms. If you suspect you have a urinary tract infection, get to your doctor for diagnosis and treatment as soon as possible.

How Does a Man Get a Urinary Tract Infection?

A UTI can occur when bacteria get trapped in the urinary tract and cannot get expelled like it normally would during urination. Males are generally not as susceptible to urinary tract infections as women, but it’s still possible for a man to get one. The risk of getting a UTI increases with age; the older the man, the greater the risk. However, a common cause is indwelling or internal catheter insertion, which can allow bacteria to enter the urinary tract.

Reducing Urinary Tract Infections with Men’s Liberty

Men’s Liberty is an alternative to traditional external catheters and can help reduce your risk of UTI. It works by directing urine away from the skin, which helps decrease the issues incontinence can cause, like UTI or skin infections. Males using Men’s Liberty can get back to the independent, active lifestyle they deserve.
