UTI vs STD: Urine is supposed to be sterile. And peeing/voiding is supposed to be painless. How do you know you have a little bacteria in your urine? Why were you checked? Most common cause of bacteria in urine is a urinary tract infection (UTI) either simple bladder infection or more complicated & serious kidney infection. Sexually transmitted diseases can also make your urine appear dirty. See your doc
