Urinary Tract & Bladder Health

Urinary tract infections are caused by microbes such as bacteria overcoming the body's defenses in the urinary tract. They can affect the kidneys, bladder, and the tubes that run between them. The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder so it can be expelled from the body. The core cause of urethritis is usually infection. This can cause the urethra to become irritated and inflamed. Both males and females can develop urethritis. However, females have a greater chance of developing the condition than males and it may affect people of all ages.
