May 29, 2022

What is a Urinary Tract Infection?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of the urinary system - kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.

Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than men.

UTIs can be painful and recurring. Serious consequences can occur if a UTI spreads to the kidneys.

Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections

There are many symptoms of a urinary tract infection which include:

   ●    a burning feeling when you pee

   ●    a frequent or intense urge to pee even though little comes out when you do

   ●    a cloudy dark bloody or strange-smelling pee

   ●    feeling tired or shaky
