What are the causes of urinary tract infection (UTI)
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that affects any part of the urinary system, from the kidneys, the bladder to the urethra. It is defined as the presence of microorganisms in some part of that system. When it affects the kidneys, it is called pyelonephritis, when the bladder, it is called cystitis in the urethra it is urethritis, and when it affects the prostate, it is called prostatitis.

The UTI can affect individuals of any age and sex, but it is far more common among women. This relationship is inverted in the first year of life when it is more common in boys. But why is UTI more frequent in women? This is probably due to anatomical factors. In women, the output of the urethra is very close to the entrance of the vagina, where it is known that the woman harbors many microorganisms in the vaginal flora.

In addition, poor hygiene after using the toilet, passing toilet paper into the anus and vagina favors the transport of intestinal microorganisms to the vulva. Another important factor is that the female urethra is much shorter than the male, which favors the path of bacteria from entering the urethra into the bladder.

UTI occurs primarily when microorganisms, bacteria in most cases, "climb" to reach the urethra and bladder, ureters and kidneys. The bacteria that most commonly cause UTI is called Escherichia coli, and is part of the normal intestinal flora. Thus, we can realize the importance of proper hygiene to prevent urinary infections.

Normally, urine does not contain any microorganism. The presence of any microorganism in the urine may lead to the development of UTI. Some people, especially women, may have bacteria in the urine and develop a UTI itself, being completely asymptomatic. These cases are called "asymptomatic bacteriuria" and are of particular importance in pregnant women, as we will comment further.

An extremely important factor in the development of UTI is urinary stasis. This happens when there is a difficulty emptying the bladder, and if urine accumulates for a long time. This favors the proliferation of bacteria in the urine, leading to the development of infection.

Re: What are the causes of urinary tract infection (UTI)
women who are smaller down there can get these from just having sex....so, some women hv to close to immediately go pee / urinate after sex to avoid infections. drinking cranberry juice can also help. tight can be good, but makes you more prone to these....some doctors will rx abx (like macrodantin) to women proactively if they hv had this problem and tell them to take a pill every time after sex, but really emptying the bladder before and after sex is best and more natural.

some doctors call UTIs in women caused by sex "honeymoonitits" as people tend to have more sex on their honeymoons, i guess.....but, cystitis / UTIs from sex can occur anytime. voiding the bladder afterwards is the best defense, imho. it gets rid of all the stirred up bacteria in the urethral tract from having had sex. this would also include masturbatory sex with vibrators.

i don't know any normal woman who was taught to incorrectly wipe herself....or man for that matter. you always go front to back. always. anything else would just be GROSS and UNSANITARY.

Re: What are the causes of urinary tract infection (UTI)
also, holding your bladder....not going when you need to go can cause UTIs in women....esp. if you combine an episode or multiple episodes of that with those prone to it from sex.

find time before meetings (and don't be embarrassed to excuse yourself if some meeting is going into hellish overtime or whatever ... your health comes first before work) and before getting on the road to empty your bladder jic ... also drinking as much water as you can vs. caffeinated beverages and also drinking some cranberry juice now and again can help those prone to these. so much better than doing the abx rounds. also, much better to catch a UTI BEFORE it turns into a kidney infection....when nausea hits it might be too late.

i would think pregnant women would definitely have to ensure their bladders are empty before and after sex to avoid UTIs, regardless of their respective anatomy differences (size / shape).
