Causes of Urinary Tract Infection for Men

  When bacteria enter the urinary tract and multiply, they can cause a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). To infect the urinary system, a micro-organism typically has to enter through the urethra or, rarely, through the bloodstream.

  The causes include:

  Urinary Tract Infection that is caused by bacteria - Because of E. coli bacteria or some bacteria such as gonorrhea chlamydia, mycoplasma or Candida fungus.

  Poor genital hygiene - Incorrectly cleanse your genital area can make bacteria enter and grow faster.

  Unprotected sexual activities - Unprotected sexual activities or have sex with many partners will be a very high risk of infection.

  Due to the structure of the urinary system - The female urethra is shorter than males, and the vagina near the anus is easy to cause infection to the urethra, from which invasive bacteria cause Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs).

  Diabetes - Infections in patients with diabetes mellitus can easily spread and you may get urinary tract infection.

  Prostatitis - Men are suffering from prostatitis very high risk of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
