I have not confirmed pregnency yet and am worried i may be miscarrying??! I have had several bladder infections, which i usually treat myself with lots of water and cranberry. The bladder infection feels mild; symptoms are urgency to frequently urinate (about every 30-60mins) and burning/pain towards end of urination. No blood as of yet..
If you think you're pregnant and have a concurrent bladder infection, get thee to your family physician or obstetrician immediately since the latter can lead to a miscarriage. Don't pass go. Don't collect $200. Go see your doctor. You need appropriate antibiotics and to start pre-natal care (it's already too late for folic acid to prevent spinal tube defects). Water & cranberry juice are good but not enough.
By the way, if you're not pregnant, chat w/your doctor regarding what to do before getting pregnant, eg pre-conception counseling.
Or if you don't want to get pregnant and this was just a close/wake up call, get some form of contraception that works for you.
And if you're not in a monogamous relationship, get checked out for sexually transmitted infections and make sure he wears a condom each & every time from now on to prevent STI/STDs, and use your contraception as secondary way to prevent pregnancy. Good luck!
