If you have symptoms of a UTI or have been treated for a UTI and continue to have symptoms, you should see your doctor. When treated properly, an infection of the lower portion of the urinary tract rarely leads to long term complications. However if left untreated, a urinary tract infection can cause serious long term complications:
Permanent kidney damage can result from from an acute or chronic kidney infection.
Sepsis or a blood infection can occur if the infection which is initially localized in the urinary system travels to the bloodstream. This is potentially a life threatening condition.
In pregnant women, an untreated UTI can result in premature birth and low birth weight infants.

It would have saved me from many bouts of antibiotics, many of which I am now allergic to, or which have ceased to be effective!
