Bladder Infection

Bladder Infection in Yakima, WA

The bladder is a round, hollow pelvic organ that is responsible for storing urine. The bladder is capable of holding up to 1 to 2 cups of urine at a time. Of course, when pain, decreased urinary output, and other issues set in, it’s natural to be concerned. Luckily, our urgent care providers, Rachel Worley and Julia Faith have the answers you’re looking for to treat and manage your bladder issues.

● Pregnancy and childbirth
● Being sexually active
● Hormonal fluctuations (e.g. menopause)
