A urinary tract infection or commonly known as UTI, is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary system, including the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra (1). UTI’s are extremely painful and uncomfortable, with symptoms including, burning sensation when you pee, the need to pee more often, pain in the lower abdomen, cloudy urine and sometimes a fever (1).
Urinary tract infections are the second most common infection in the world (2). It is more common in women than in men, with up to 50-60% suffering with urinary tract infection at least once in their lifetime, with an average of 25% of women being susceptible to recurring episode within the next 6 months of the infection (3,4). UTI’s are caused by a range of factors, including poor hygiene, sexual activity, health conditions, pregnancy and other hormonal changes (5).
