Dr. Mazur explains to the readers of Elite Daily how urinary tract infections (UTIs) in men and women can develop. He answers the question: are UTIs in men something to be concerned about transmitting or contracting from sexual contact?
“Most UTIs occur from pathogenic bacteria entering the urethra and making their way to the bladder,” says Dr. Daniel Mazur. “Men have a significantly longer urethra, which may make it harder for bacteria to enter the bladder.”
Dr. Mazur went onto explain that a man can develop a UTI from having sex, but are much less likely to do so than women.
