What causes bladder infections?


Answer by  singlady (161)

Bacteria entering the bladder is the usual cause. women who are newly sexually-active may experience an infection and can avoid it by urinating after intercourse. Keeping the vaginal area clean is important, and always wiping from front to back will help reduce infections. Antibiotics and birth control pills can make women more susceptible to bladder infections, and diet is important.

Bladder infections are caused when bacteria travels up through the urethra into the bladder. They are more common in women, who have shorter urethras than men do.
