A urinary tract infection (UTI) is caused by bacteria and/or fungi, and is one of the most common forms of infections seen in humans. UTIs can happen anywhere in the urinary tract, which comprises kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. In most cases, the infection affects the urethra and bladder in the lower tract.
Urinary tract infections can be caused by a variety of reasons such as urine retention, poor hygiene of the private areas of the body, unsafe sexual practices, anatomical issues, enlarged prostate in men, and menopause in women. To know what precisely the underlying cause of the infection is, it is important to get tested for a UTI at a reputed and professionally managed laboratory.
