Why do females have urinary tract infections (utis) more often than men?

Why do females have urinary tract infections (utis) more often than men?

Anatomy: The male and female urinary tract is different when it comes to anatomy. Females have shorter urethras than their male counterparts. A shorter urethra makes it easier for bacteria to travel up the urethra to the bladder. The urethra in a female is also closer to the rectum allowing for a shorter distance for bacteria to travel. This is why proper hygiene is recommended for females to prevent uti. ...Read more

Also, female urethras are close in proximity to the anus and vulnerable to contamination by gut bacteria. Bacteria from the anal area, such as e. Coli, are a common cause of UTI in women, especially those who are sexually active. ...Read more
