In normal conditions, urine is sterile and only a relatively small bacterial flora colonizing the terminal part of the male urethra, but is generally absent in the female. Values greater than 100,000 colonies per ml of urine , are a sign of a urinary tract infection in progress. This problem is most common among women, due to some anatomical features that make them more susceptible to infection.
The short urethra, above all, together with the anatomical proximity to the anal region, resulting in a greater chance of colonization by the bacteria of intestinal origin. Moreover, the absence of bactericidal prostatic secretions and trauma resulting from sexual intercourse, urinary tract infections make an issue with which many women are often forced to live with. Do not underestimate Finally, other predisposing factors, such as intrauterine contraceptive devices, the use of ( spiral ) and pregnancy (for urinary stasis and endocrine and anatomical changes that are associated).

In the adult prostate is similar in shape and size of a walnut, located just below the bladder and completely covering the initial part of the urethra. The urethra is the one that carries urine and semen outside the body through the penis. Read the rest of this entry »
What is it?
UTI is an infection that can affect one or more parts of the urinary system: kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra (see diagram). It occurs most often pain or burning sensation during urination (that is to say the emission of urine), sometimes with abdominal pain and fever.
Here are the main functions of different parts of the urinary system: – The kidneys filter the blood. They allow the elimination of waste and also play an important role in regulating body fluids and blood pressure. – The ureters are small channels that allow passage of urine from the kidneys to the bladder. – The bladder acts as a reservoir of urine. – The urethra carries urine from the bladder to outside the body.
Types of UTIs There are 3 types of urinary tract infections, according to the location of the infection. Cystitis. By far the form of the most common urinary tract infection, cystitis affects almost exclusively women. This is the inflammation of the bladder. Most of the time, the inflammation is caused by the proliferation of intestinal bacteria Escherichia coli, which are numerous in and around the anus. The bacteria pass from the anus and vulva to the bladder, up the urethra. Anything that interferes with the emptying of the bladder increases the risk of cystitis. Cystitis is always accompanied by urethritis, inflammation of the urethra. Urethritis. If the infection affects only the urethra (the tube that connects the bladder to the urethral opening), it is called urethritis. This is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) among men, but women can also suffer. Different infectious agents can cause urethritis. The most common are chlamydia and gonorrhea (the bacterium that causes gonorrhea ). In men, urethritis may be associated with prostatitis (prostate infection). Pyelonephritis. Pyelonephritis is a more serious condition. It means inflammation of the pelvis (the kidney cavity of collecting the urine) and kidney itself. This is usually caused by a bacterial infection. It may be a complication of cystitis untreated or improperly treated, which led to the proliferation of bacteria from the bladder to the kidneys. Acute pyelonephritis occurs primarily in women, and especially pregnant women. It is also common in children who have a congenital ureteral causing reflux of urine from the bladder to the kidneys.
