Urinary tract infections (UTI) are often caused by bacteria that get into the bladder, which is part of the urinary tract. UTIs are common, especially in women. More than half of women will have at least one UTI at some point in life. UTIs are serious and can be extremely painful. Most often UTIs are easy to treat with antibiotics prescribed by your doctor.
