Can a UTI cause cramping?


I was at the hospital 3 days ago for a growth scan & they also did the usual checks, blood pressure, urine etc. Turns out i had something in my urine sample, i can't remember the name but the same was in my urine sample at 28 weeks when i had a uti which was strep B (I didn't know at the time found out 2 weeks later when i got a letter off my doctor with antibiotics).

About an hour or so ago i started with slight cramping and lower backache, like period pain but i don't have any BHs or contractions etc. I had regular BHs last week but just the odd few since.

Could this cramping be down to having a UTI? I'm not sure i do have one as i have no symptoms but i didn't have any last time but i guess I'll find out soon when the results come back. x

With my UTI I had bad cramps low down, I also had a heavy dragging feeling down there, like baby was being pulled out of me

UTIs can definitely cause cramping. They have even been known to cause premature labor. Which is why during pregnancy they should be dealt with promptly.

Yes they can cause cramping and contractions which if left untreated can lead to premature labor. I went in to hospital after having hours of these around 30 weeks and it was a UTI. I had no other symptoms other than the contractions. Symptoms can be masked when pregnant.

Yes yes yes! I am in the process of being treated for uti. I went in to hospital with contractions 4 minutes apart quite nasty ones too. Before this I had period like cramps for few days. Then the burning while having a wee started later on. Urine sample came back positive for uti. Been on antibiotics since and contractions gone even reduced braxton hicks which I've been having loads since 15 weeks (now 31 weeks)

Yes they can! They found I had a UTI around 33 weeks. I'd been having tons of cramping, crazy tender kind of pressure down low, and even some strong contractions. They were concerned about pre-term labor, so I had to get all kinds of tests done. Turns out it was a UTI, and like others said since I got rid of it, even my braxton hicks seem much better!
