Prone to UTI’s? Here’s How the New BC Pharmacare Guidelines Can Help!

Did you know you can now see a pharmacist for minor ailments or contraception? Starting June 29th, 2023, you can now book an appointment to see your local pharmacist so that they can assess your issue and prescribe you with the appropriate treatment. See full list of ailments and symptoms and book an appointment here!

This is good news for anyone who is prone to Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) as UTIs are included in the 21 minor ailments that the new guidelines cover. This makes it significantly easier to obtain treatment from a healthcare professional. Simply book an appointment with your local pharmacist and they will assess your symptoms and get you treated. You can also visit a pharmacy without an appointment, but services may vary based on availability.

What are the symptoms of a UTI?

  • A feeling of burning when urinating
  • Colour variations in urine that may indicate the presence of blood (ex. pink, red, brown)
  • The consistent feeling of wanting to urinate
  • Cloudy or strong-smelling urine

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, determining if you have a UTI can be done from the comfort of your own home! Prior to booking an appointment and visiting your local pharmacist, you can also use our Utiva UTI Test Strips for fast, reliable, and discreet UTI detection. Once you have determined if you have a UTI or not, you can visit your local pharmacist for treatment, making the process even easier.
