Question Urinary Tract Infection

Help me!! How can I tell if I have a urinary tract infection? If I do have one is there anything that can cure it without going to the doctor. Doctors freak me out, and I hate going to them.

I THINK YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE DOCTOR AND GO SOON BECAUSE IT CAN GET DANGEROUS. I HAVE HAD ABOUT 8 ITS NOT BAD THEY JUST MAKE YOU PEE IN A CUP AND TEST IT AND THEN THEY SAY YEAH ITS A BLADDER INFECTION. THE DOCTOR THEN JUST GIVES YOU SOME MEDICINE.

You will know if you have one thats forsure. It burns like the devil and at times you will even wipe and have blood on the TP. Frequent urge to urinate and nothing comes out. There is NOTHING that can be done without a doctor and an antibiotic. He will diagnose you by a urine sample in a cup. If you go and get the medication make sure you finish it all even if you start to feel better and drink plenty of water as it flushes out the infection. Good Luck.
Autumn.

i agree, you HAVE to see a doctor. it can lead to more serious problems later on.
i had a lot of infections in high school and in my first year of college. now, i have a disorder called "interstitial cystitis" which is like a constant bladder infection. get it checked.
