Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

A vaginal infection is, literally, in the vagina. There are many causes - from a sexually transmitted infection (viral or bacterial) or something like a yeast infection.

UTIs are caused by bacteria. The bacteria invade the urinary system and multiply. The infection can occur in any part of the urinary system, but usually starts in the urethra. The urethra is a tube that carries the urine out of the body.
