Sometimes your urine will look cloudy or be the wrong color, like orange or dark colored which indicates blood in the urine of if cloudy an infection. You could have pain when urinating, or a burning sensation or low back pain. If you think you have a urinary tract infection or bladder infection PLEASE go to a doctor, if it goes untreated it can move up into your kidneys and become life threatening. If you can't afford to go to a doctor, try an Urgent Care or Immediate Care clinic, they are cheaper, also some cities have clinics with sliding scales that might provide free service.

Most of the home remedies you will find out there don't work once you already have the infection. Prevention is key, you need to make sure you drink water every day, at least 10 8 oz glasses (8 oz is about the size of a child's drinking cup) also if you are sexually active, make sure you urinate after sex, don't wait too long, get up and go, it helps to clear any bacteria from your urethra that may have gotten there through sex, same goes for masturbation. (sorry if this is too detailed but women need to know this)
