Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common conditions that affect your bladder or urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder and out of your body).

Urinary tract infections can cause pelvic pain, pain when urinating, or blood in the urine. UTIs are more common in women and older adults.

Treatments
