Description: Urinary tract infection is a great deal more common in women than in men. Almost half of women will be infected during their lifetime. Usually it begins with bacteria usually from the faeces, colonising the entrance to the the vagina, and then passing up the urethra into the bladder.
In men because of the longer link to the urethra, and the anti bacterial action of secretions from the prostate gland, it is much less common.
Symptoms include painful urination, frequency, urgency, pain just above the pubic bone and sometimes blood in the urine.
Occasionally the infection can rise up the ureters into the kidneys, causing pyelonephritis which is much more serious, with fever, chills, pain in the back, nausea and vomiting and does require relatively urgent treatment with antibiotics.
