Fast Solutions for Your UTI
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) develop rapidly with intense discomfort and pain, taking you away from your daily life. To get back to your routine, you need a comprehensive test with fast results. The NxGen UTI Test gives your doctor the information necessary to provide you with effective treatment and get you the relief you need.
Know the Symptoms of a UTI
There are many symptoms indicative of a UTI that might bring you into your doctor’s office.1
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, reach out to your doctor and ask about UTI testing.
UTIs Can Be Difficult to Treat Effectively
While most UTIs can be resolved by your doctor, up to 30% of patients will see their symptoms return, requiring another visit to the doctor’s office.2 Recurrent UTIs can be caused by having multiple pathogens present or an infection that is resistant to antibiotics, both of which are common.
NxGen's UTI Test Leads to Effective Treatment
The NxGen UTI Test accounts for recurrent infections by simultaneously testing for pathogens that cause 99% of community-acquired infections and resistance to antibiotics.
With NxGen, your doctor can prescribe an optimized treatment plan to clear your infection and help keep it from returning.
Prevention and Treatment of UTIs
How You Can Prevent a UTI
A UTI is caused by pathogens infecting the urinary tract system, most often the bladder. While not all UTI's are preventable, talk to your doctor about some hygiene habits1 that can help reduce your risk of developing a UTI:
- Urinating after sex
- Wiping from front to back after urination
- Take showers instead of baths
- Avoid douches, sprays, or perfumed soaps in the genital area
Leaving a UTI Untreated May Lead to Further Health Complications
Untreated UTIs can develop into more serious infections that can cause lasting consequences. Without effective treatment, you may be at risk of:
- Kidney infections (pyelonephritis)4
- Pregnancy complications such as preterm labor, anemia, and severe kidney infections that could be fatal to the mother and baby4
- Renal scarring and injury, especially in children5
