What are more serious symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI)?

ANSWER

If you have symptoms such as fever, chills, or nausea, it might be a more serious infection, such as a kidney infection, so call your doctor right away. If you’re pregnant, you might not know if you have a urinary tract infection (UTI), so you’ll get a urine test at your regular prenatal checkups.
