The human being to remove his waste must urinate frequently and everyday. However, as with any system of the body, there are also infections related to urinary function. Urinary tract infection can affect different parts of the urinary system, such as the kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra and is characterized by pain and a burning sensation when urinating. This is sometimes accompanied by abdominal pain and fever. What really characterizes this is the presence of an important quantity of germs and pus in the urine. Urinary tract infection is categorized into three types. The most common form is cystitis. This one is characterized by inflammation of the bladder caused by overgrowth of intestinal bacteria, including Escherichia coli, existing in large numbers near the anus. Then there is a urinary tract infection sexually transmitted which is encountered in men. We speak of urethritis. The agents who are most responsible of it are chlamydia and gonorrhea. Then the third category of urinary tract infection which is also the most serious is pyelonephritis. It is caused by a bacterial infection or a complication of cystitis that we have neglected thus favoring the growth of bacteria from the bladder to the kidneys. The occurrence of urinary tract infections vary according to age and sex. Women are much more likely to be affected by this disease because their urethras are shorter than men which facilitates bladder contamination by bacteria. To prevent a urinary tract infection, it is necessary to respect the anal hygiene, drinking enough, emptying the bladder regularly. Although not serious in most cases, urinary tract infections can become a hindrance in daily life and ruin your life. It is therefore important to treat them.
