Urinary Tract Infections - What it is

Urinary tract infection conditions and treatments

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) occur when bacteria is present within the urinary tract in significant numbers. UTIs are common in women, with 1 in 5 adult women aged 20-65 experiencing a UTI at least once a year. Approximately 50% of women will experience UTIs at least once in their life.

Cystitis (bladder infection) makes up the majority of these infections. Involvement of the upper urinary tract (pyelonephritis) is less common compared to that of cystitis but can be associated with more serious complications.
