Although urine does not contain bacteria, sometimes bacteria from outside can enter the urinary tract and cause an infection, whether it is the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra. The most common infection occurs in the bladder.
Some symptoms of a urinary tract infection are frequent urination; pain or burning when urinating; abnormal color of urine; blood in the urine and fever.
If any of these occur, it’s best to see a doctor who can determine the type of infection and next steps.
There are some preventive measures you can take to reduce the risk of contracting these infections, such as drinking enough water every day, maintaining good hygiene in the genital area, not suppressing the urge to urinate, wearing cotton underwear, and avoiding tight clothing.
