Frequent UTI - Causes, Cure & Treatment

Frequent UTI, urinary tract infection  is the general term for an infection occurring anywhere in the urinary system. UTI is caused by the invasion of microorganisms , usually bacteria, into the urethra and bladder

Most UTIs involve the bladder and the urethra (the tube that drains the bladder), but some can also involve the ureters (the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder), and even the kidneys themselves.

What Causes UTI in Women;
Causes of UTI in women, the urethra is shorter in women than in men, as such the bacteria that cause UTI enter the urinary tract through the urethra. This explains why UTI's are more common in women. Urinary tract infections are virtually always caused when bacteria that are normally present on the skin or in the gastrointestinal tract make their way into the urinary system. UTIs can happen to anyone at any age, frequent UTI are more prevalent in women than in men.

Bacteria that cause UTIs are almost always transmitted during sexual intercourse, and thus proper hygiene of both partners is a useful way to prevent infection.
