What is a UTI?

A UTI, or urinary tract infection, is an infection that affects any part of the urinary system, which includes the kidneys, bladder, ureters (tubes connecting the kidneys to the bladder), and urethra (tube through which urine exits the body).

UTIs are typically caused by bacteria, most commonly Escherichia coli (E. coli), although other bacteria, viruses, or fungi can also be responsible.

UTIs can occur in both males and females, but they are more common in women due to their shorter urethra, which allows bacteria to reach the bladder more easily.

What are UTI Symptoms?

The symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI) can vary depending on which part of the urinary system is affected. Common symptoms of a UTI may include:
If a UTI infection spreads to the kidneys, you may experience additional symptoms such as fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, and/or pain in your side or upper back. It’s important to note that the severity and combination of symptoms can vary from person to person. Some individuals may only experience mild symptoms, while others may have more pronounced discomfort.

Possible UTI Complications

While most urinary tract infections (UTIs) are easily treatable with appropriate medical intervention, if left untreated or if the infection spreads to other parts of the urinary system, complications can arise. Some potential complications of UTIs include:
