About Urinary Tract Infections:
A Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is an infection anywhere in the urinary tract, such as the kidneys, bladder and urethra. Usually, bacteria that cause a UTI enter the urethra and may travel to the bladder and kidneys. Your body often removes these bacteria, so there may not even be symptoms.
Although women are 30 times more likely to get a UTI, men can also get the infection. UTIs are commonly caused by the bacteria found in the digestive tract, stool, or on the skin around a women's vagina which is why women are more likely to get the infection.
