do men get uti's too? or just in women? if so, what are the symptoms?

UTI in men: Yes, they happen, but are much more rare because of the length of the male urethra compared to females. Symptoms include urinary frequency and urgency (gotta go all the time, nothing comes out), bladder spasm, pelvic pain. More common in men are infections like STDs (chlamydia/gonorrhea) or epididymitis, an infection in the testicle. Go get this checked. Any of the above need to be treated.
