Pregnant women are more likely to get UTIs because of changes in the position of the uterus during pregnancy. In addition, pregnant women are more likely to have a UTI become a kidney infection, so they should see a health care provider as soon as possible after they notice symptoms. A woman's obstetrician may or may not regularly test for urinary tract infections during prenatal visits.2
Certain groups may have slightly different UTI symptoms:
