What are the symptoms to look for with a UTI?

A UTI is a bacterial infection that enters the urinary system (kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra).
Symptoms include:
  • Frequent urge to pee with small amounts of urine
  • A burning sensation when urinating
  • Urine that appears cloudy with a sour odor
  • Urine that appears red (blood in the urine)
  • Pelvic pain and pressure
  • Lower back pain
  • Low-grade fever and chills

Do at-home UTI test strips work?

Using the same rapid strips you get from your doctor, you can now test for a UTI in the privacy of your home. Get fast and accurate results in under two minutes.

How do the UTI test strips work?

In 2 minutes, our UTI Test Kit can show if white blood cells (Leukocytes) and Nitrite are present in your urine, which signals a potential UTI. Kits come with multiple test strips, a step-by-step guide, and a color chart with easy-to-follow instructions.

Are the UTI test strips FDA-approved?

Checkable's UTI kits have been clinically tested, FDA cleared, CLIA waived, and OTC and physician-approved, so you can rest assured that you are getting the best care with the most accurate results.

What should I do if the results are positive?

If the test shows that both leukocytes and nitrite are positive, you can sync the UTI test with the Checkable app for fast treatment and get meds called into your local pharmacy via telehealth. You can also contact your doctor and let them know your rapid UTI test shows that nitrite and leukocytes were detected to get a prescription for antibiotics.

When is the best time to use the UTI test strips?

It is recommended to use the UTI test strips at the first sign of a UTI. Doctors also recommend doing the test first thing in the morning for a rich sample. You should not use the UTI test strips during your menstrual cycle or while on antibiotics, as they can alter the test results.

What if my UTI test results show negative?

If both the white blood cells (Leukocytes) and Nitrite are not present in your urine, there is a good chance that you do not have a UTI. But of course, tests can have a false negative or positive, so if your symptoms persist, try the test again or call your healthcare provider, as it could be a different issue that needs treatment.
