Urinary Tract Infections

Introduction

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common. They can be painful and uncomfortable, but they usually pass within a few days or can be easily treated with a course of antibiotics.

UTIs are more common in women than in men. It's estimated half of all women in the UK will have a UTI at least once in their life, and 1 in 2,000 healthy men will develop one each year.

Children can also get UTIs, although this is less common. Read more about UTIs in children.

If you develop a UTI, you're likely to feel:

  • pain or a burning sensation when urinating (doctors refer to this as dysuria)
  • a need to urinate often
  • pain in the lower abdomen (tummy)
