Brief Answer:
Pool swimming has a higher risk for a urinary infection to develop.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using HealthcareMagic to post your health query.

Swimming in the pool may predispose to higher risk of having a urinary tract infection. You should try at any cost to avoid a urinary tract infection, not only by avoiding swimming if possible but also by drinking plenty of fluids. This is because when you will remove it also, the infection may spread to the kidneys.

So, please try to refrain from swimming for the time being.

I hope this answer is helpful to reassure you.
Let me know if you have other questions or concerns.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
