A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection i.e infection of urine, in any part of your urinary system – your kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra.
Most of the infections affect the lower urinary tract – the bladder and urethra.
While women are at higher risk of developing a urinary tract infection than men.
An infection restricted to your bladder can be painful and/or annoying.
However, serious consequences can occur if a urinary tract infection spreads to your kidneys.
Doctors usually treat urinary tract infections with antibiotics.
However, you can take measures to reduce the likelihood of you getting an infection of urine.
