Urinary tract infection is a common term used to describe infection of lower urinary tract, i.e., urethra or bladder, and that of upper urinary tract infection i.e., ureters or kidneys. Lower urinary tract infections are more common in women because of their short urethra and are also less serious than upper UTIs. There are multiple bacteria that can cause a UTI, so your symptom may vary depending on the type of bacteria involved.
