for a UTI (that went undiagnosed or untreated) to turn into a bladder or kidney infection? And would a bladder infection cause period like cramps?

Hmm idk i'd say like 2 weeks. The first time i had a UTI i had no idea what it was I thought i was dying it hurt so bad. It took about 2 weeks for me to go to the ER and that's when they said it was almost turning into a kidney infection.

The one I had felt like I was in labor. My bladder was spasming. It was very painful!

Oh goodness. My sister & I have constant UTI due to our kidney disease & she let one go untreated for months. It went away after a couple of weeks & then came back with a vengeance! Get it treated right away!!! She gets them more often now because of the kidney disease & that she left it untreated...

I keep having cramps on and off. The other day it got REALLY bad to the point I was crying and the pain was radiating into my back but it happened when I starting moving around too much...but for awhile I would get like a cramp after I emptied my bladder, which I thought was weird but never thought of it as being a UTI or anything...this has been going on for awhile now, not sure how long. But ever since that horrible episode Tuesday night, I am cramping hard after peeing and just cramping out of nowhere. I am just confused.

do you have the urgency to pee and when you pee it's only like drops? is your pee cloudy?

Usually a couple of weeks. My friend had a UTI for a while and never really treated it and then had a horrific kidney and bladder infection because of it. She said it's the worst pain shes ever been in dealing with it, and she gave birth naturally!!

Bladder and kidney infections are uti's. they are all part of the urinary tract.

Well yea I know that....but normally they just stay in the urethra & then if it goes untreated it moves up.

Get some 100% cranberry juice with no sugar added and drink water while your waiting for a Dr's appt. Cause you're gonna need antibiotics.

Mine always starts in my bladder. Every now and then my kidneys but that's usually from a kidney stone.
