According to the U.S. Department of Health more than 8.3 million people visit the doctor’s office annually due to urinary tract infections (UTIs). For reasons that are not medically understood, women are more prone to UTIs than men.

For example, one out of five women in their lifetimes will be diagnosed with a urinary tract infection. Scientists think one factor may be that a woman's urethra is short, so bacteria from the anus or vagina may enter more easily causing an infection.

A urinary tract infection is caused when bacteria enters your urethra and spreads to your urinary tract. A UTI can occur in the bladder, kidneys, urethra and ureters. Also, you can have a UTI if you have a catheter.

A urinary tract infection can leave you hunched over in pain and many times you may feel pressure or tingling (burning) sensation when you urinate.
