What can cause urethra damage?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The urethra carries urine from the bladder and out of the body. Various bacteria can enter through the urethra and cause a bladder infection. Left untreated, this could cause damage to the urethra in the way of scarring. Sexual intercourse is another way that bacteria is sometimes forced into the urethra, which can cause infection and scarring.
