Urinary Tract Infection

Urinary Tract Infection – Urine infection occurs when bacteria gains access into the urinary tract.

Lower urinary tract infection or bladder infection is fairly common among women. These women experience frequent urination, pain or a burning sensation when passing urine. More serious infection can cause fever or blood in the urine. A course of antibiotics usually cures the condition. Recurrent urine infection, occurring more than twice over 6 months or more than 3 times over 12 months, warrants further investigations to exclude other problems such as stones, cancers, Diabetes Mellitus, etc.
