I have a bladder infection

Doctor I need your help. I was told I have a urinary tract infection (UTI). 1. Where does a UTI come from and is it a sexually transmitted disease? 2. I was in the clinic and they gave me Doxytet pills but it didn’t clear it up? 3. Is a curable infection? 4. Is a urinary tract infection the same as a bladder infection?

DOC NICOLA SAYS

Urinary tract infections are caused by bacteria. They can happen to women often, but if a man has an infection he must go to the doctor to find out why it happened. In women it is easier to get an infection because the tube connecting the outside of the body to the bladder is very short and germs can easily get up the tube into the bladder. In a man it a much longer tube, so infection is uncommon. It can be caused by an STI, but is usually caused by other bacteria which can easily be treated with antibiotics. A bladder infection or urine infection is the same thing. If the pills they gave you at the clinic did not work, you need to go back to either get different antibiotics or have a urine test sent to the laboratory to find out exactly what is causing the infection.
