bladder infection
Hi Doc
PLs tell me what causes the bladder infections. I only heard that I should drink water and I was given antibiotics.
I need to know so I can prevent it from happening again!

Sami, in women it is often due to organisms that live on the skin moving up into the urethra, but they may reach the bladder via the kidneys or the blood. If you have frequent bladder infections the best would be to see an urologist and make sure that there isn’t an underlying problem. Good luck.
