In brief: It sure can

The symptoms of urinary tract infection include frequency (going a lot), urgency (needing to go right now, and sometimes leaking) and burning.
Sometimes there is a foul odor to the urine as well. If left untreated, utis can turn into kidney infections and worse. You should go see your doc to be properly evaluated and treated for this.
