What is a urinary tract infection (UTI)?

When bacteria or other germs get into the urethra, a urinary tract infection (UTI) or bladder infection is possible. Symptoms include feeling like you have to pee almost constantly or feeling like you have to pee without being able to and/or feeling a burning sensation while peeing. A UTI is easily treated with an antibiotic prescribed by a doctor or other health care provider. If you see blood in your urine, though, the infection could be spreading and you should see a doctor right away. UTIs can be caused by bacteria left behind after sex. It’s a good idea to pee right after you have sex, every time you have sex, to help wash away bacteria.
