- Urethra – A tube through which urine is transmitted from the bladder of the body, and also conveys semen in male vertebrates.
- Bladder – where urine is stored for excretion.
- Ureters – ducts that pass urine to the bladder from kidneys
- Kidneys – that filter food and drink waste and cause urine.
The urethra from the anus, which is common in women because of the short distance between the two on their body, may include bacteria commonly found in the digestible tract, and otherwise inoffensive. It is also possible that bacteria spread through intercourse.
An enlarged prostate for men can inhibit the bladder from totally emptying, thereby encouraging bacterial growth and leading to infection.
The most common symptoms of UTI include burning sensation, pelvic pain, and persistent urination.
HOW TO PREVENT UTIs
As there is a famous saying, prevention is the best cure. Here are some tips for preventing the development of UTIs:
- Flush the urine tract – You should drink plenty of liquids, ideally water, that can flush your urinary tract with any presence of bacteria. This can be particularly helpful after intercourse if bacteria are introduced to the urinary tract.
- Stay clean – Just stay clean. After the bowel movement, wipe from the front to the back.
- Wear comfortable and clean undergarments – Bacteria grow in warm or humid places. The prevention of tight pants and the use of cotton shorts can help to protect against growth in bacteria.
Medical treatment and diagnosis
Your doctor will need a UTI diagnosis urinary sample; your laboratory analysis will determine whether bacteria are found to cause an infection in your urine.
In some cases, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or a computed tomography (CT) test may be recommended to help determine whether the cause of the infection is a structural abnormality.
The preferred method of treating UTIs is antibiotics.
Men and women are both highly susceptible to urinary tract infections and you can get a UTI at any time. Contact your Urology Doctor on your symptoms and risk factors and how UTIs can be prevented in the future.
