There is nothing about being pregnant that keeps you from getting a urinary tract infection. They are possible at any time. You need to see a doctor right away.

Urinary tract infections are common during pregnancy. You should consult with your doctor closely about the medications and antibiotics you can take while pregnant, as some of these could have harmful effects on your baby in utero. Another thing to remember is always wipe front to back after using the bathroom.

Of course you can get a UTI while pregnant, many people associate it with poor hygeine, but that can be one cause but certainly not all the reason. A UTI during pregnancy is quite common but it can have serious consequences if left untreated including premature birth. See your doctor.

It is possible to get urinary tract infection at any time. Urinary tract infection has nothing to do with pregnancy but you will want to visit your doctor because it could affect your pregnancy. Besides making you need to go more than you already do you will want to make sure any medicine you use is safe for the baby.
