Usually, frequent urination is a sign of pregnancy. Even from the first trimester, pregnant women go to the bathroom more often. As the uterus grows, it can press the bladder and cause frequent urination.
Many pregnant women in the third trimester wake up at night to go to the toilet. Sometimes, however, frequent urination can be a sign of urinary tract infection. This is the case when frequent urination is associated with pain, stinging when urinating, urgent sensation of urination.
The diagnosis of urinary tract infection is made by each doctor after specific analyzes (summary of urine, uroculture).
Urinary tract infections are dangerous during pregnancy and can affect the good evolution of pregnancy, which is why they must be detected and treated in time.
A urinary tract infection can be an alarm signal during pregnancy. Left untreated, infections can spread to the kidneys and can even cause premature labor or rupture of the membranes. Therefore, it is advisable to contact the doctor if you feel that something is wrong.
