According to the Centres for Disease Control And Prevention (CDC), UTI happen when bacteria from the skin or rectum- enter the urethra and infect the urinary tract. In women, the risk is higher because the urethras are shorter and closer to the rectum, which further leads to an increase in UTI.

Well, it’s advisable to consult a doctor immediately if you observe any of these signs to begin your medical treatment. Besides medication, there is also a natural way that can offer relief from UTI.
