What Is a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)?

A UTI occurs when bacteria enter the urinary tract, leading to inflammation and uncomfortable symptoms. It’s a common condition but requires prompt medical attention to prevent complications.


Symptoms of a UTI

Burning sensation during urination

Frequent urge to urinate

Lower abdominal pain or pressure

Cloudy or strong-smelling urine

Fever or chills (in severe cases)

Who Is at Risk for a UTI?

While anyone can develop a UTI, certain factors may increase risk:

Being female (women are more prone to UTIs)

Recent sexual activity

Medical conditions affecting the urinary tract

Certain types of birth control


Understanding UTIs: Types and Causes

UTIs can occur in different parts of the urinary tract, each with its specific characteristics:
  • Bladder Infection (Cystitis): Often caused by E. coli bacteria, leading to discomfort and frequent urination.
  • Kidney Infection (Pyelonephritis): A more severe form that may cause fever, back pain, and nausea.
  • Urethra Infection (Urethritis): Linked to sexually transmitted infections, causing discharge and burning.
Risk Factors and Prevention

Risk Factors and Prevention

Understanding the risk factors can lead to effective prevention:
  • Stay Hydrated: Drinking sufficient water helps flush bacteria from the urinary tract.
  • Urinate Regularly: Don’t hold in urine; regular urination helps prevent bacterial buildup.
  • Wipe Properly: For women, wiping from front to back reduces the spread of bacteria.
  • Avoid Irritating Products: Certain feminine products can irritate the urethra, increasing risk.
