A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that affects any part of your urinary system, such as your kidneys, bladder, urethra or ureters. A majority of the infections affect the bladder and the urethra, and typically women are more susceptible to a UTI than men.

The common symptoms of a UTI could include pain or a burning sensation during urination. You could also experience a frequent or intense urge to urinate. More serious UTI symptoms include pain or pressure in your back or lower abdomen, feeling tired or shaky, fevers, and chills.

If you have a UTI, your doctor will likely prescribe you a course of antibiotics and possibly pain medication to help reduce the irritation. For women, antibiotics could make you more susceptible to get a yeast infection, so be sure to follow up with your physician.
