UTI Care Florida (Urinary Tract Infection)

Overview:

UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections) are common infections. Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than men.  Because women have shorter urethras and closer to the rectum it is easier for bacteria to enter the urinary tract. The urinary system is designed to keep bacteria out, however, sometimes the defense fails. Urinary tract infections typically occur when bacteria enter the urethra and spread to the bladder, resulting in an infection.
