Our urine must always be devoid of any bacteria that is germs. Our urine is a byproduct of the kidneys i.e. the filtration system. When waste products and excess water is eliminated from our blood by filtration through the kidneys, urine is generated. Normally our urine travels through the urinary system but without any contamination. However bacteria may invade into the urinary system from outside our body, thereby causing grave infections and inflammations. This is known as urinary tract infection (UTI).

It is pertinent to mention that women have a greater risk of developing a UTI as compared to men. Such infections, if limited to your bladder, can indeed be quite painful and annoying. However UTI's may lead to severe complications if it spreads to the kidneys as it may even cause acute kidney disease (AKD) or chronic kidney disease (CKD) which are both quite perilous to deal with. UTI's therefore require quick treatment and medical intervention wherein your urologist might suggest you some antibiotics in order to subside your UTI.
