Urinary tract infection

I am in my early 40s and this is my first pregnancy. It is done by IVF. After successful implantation, I notice there is slight urine leaking, ie it happens during first trimester. I have tested my urine and that there is urinary tract infection. May I know if this is normal? Can I do anything to make the condition better?


Answer:

It is not normal to have a urinary tract infection in pregnancy. If you have an infection, you should have it treated appropriately with the right antibiotics. If left untreated, it may lead to kidney infection which can be serious and may cause premature birth.
