In brief: Bladder infections

Usually do not progress to kidney infections (pyelonephritis).
Kidney infections are most of the time the primary infection through bacteria in the blood. If a bladder infection is left untreated and is unresolved spontaneously the individual could become septic (bacteria in blood) and wind up with pyelonephritis. Just get the bladder infection treated while still just that.

In brief: Polyuria

Frequent urination can be due to multiple causes, first being excessive intake of liquids.
If you have ascending UTI you will usually have fever, chills, back pain, and the potential for overwhelmingly serious infection. If you have questions about this see a doctor and be evaluated face to face. Good luck.
