Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than are men. Infection limited to your bladder can be painful and annoying. However, serious consequences can occur if a UTI spreads to your kidneys.A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra.
 
Doctors typically treat urinary tract infections with antibiotics. But you can take steps to reduce your chances of getting a UTI in the first place. Your urinary tract includes your bladder, kidneys, ureters (two tubes that go from your kidneys to your bladder), and urethra (how urine goes out of your body from your bladder).

Who Gets Urinary Tract Infections? UTIs are more likely if you:
· are a woman
· have had UTIs before
· have a condition that affects your bladder's nerve supply (including diabetes, multiple         sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and spinal cord injuries)
· have been through menopause
· are overweight
· have something that blocks the passage of urine, such as a tumor, kidney stone, or an enlarged prostate
· have a catheter, a tube placed into the bladder to drain urine from the bladder into a bag outside the body
 
Most of these traits also raise the chance that a simple bladder infection may become a more serious kidney infection, or turn into sepsis (an infection that has gotten into your bloodstream). For pregnant women, a kidney infection can raise the odds of delivering a baby too early.Women are more likely to get urinary tract infections because the tube that goes from the bladder to the outside (the urethra) is much shorter than in men. Because the urethral opening is closer to the anus in women, it’s easier for bacteria from stool to get into the female urethra. A urinary tract infection may be linked to sex.
 
In men, a bladder infection is almost always a symptom of another condition. Often, the infection has moved from the prostate or some other part of the body. Or it may mean that a tumor or something else is blocking or interfering with the urinary tract.
Urinalysis checks your urine sample for white blood cells, blood, and bacteria.
A urine culture is another test that can find the type of bacteria that caused the infection, which will help your doctor choose an antibiotic to give you.
