Urinary Tract Infection Causes

Urinary tract infections commonly occur when bacteria enters the urinary tract through the urethra and begins to multiply in the bladder. Most cases can be traced back to a bacteria called E. coli, poor hygiene, and sexual intercourse. Urination usually flushes the bacteria out of urethra, but sometimes the bacteria has taken hold and it is too late.

If bacteria reaches the kidneys, a kidney infection may occur. A kidney infection should be treated promptly to prevent it from evolving into a serious condition.
