Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common infection for which women visit their doctor. It is usually caused by bacteria that enter the urethra and then the bladder. UTI can involve any part of the urinary tract (the upper urinary tract i.e. the kidney and ureter or the lower urinary tract i.e. the bladder and urethra). Treatment of UTI depends on many factors including the severity of infection, your health condition and the causative bacterium. Most women with UTI respond well to treatment, but if it is not treated appropriately, complications may occur.
