MEDFORD, Ore. -- The urinary tract is thre group of organs that handle urine, which include the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra.

Urinary tract infections usually affect the bladder or the kidneys.

Bladder infections happen when bacteria gets into the urethra and travel up to the bladder, and can even travel to the kidneys.

Some symptoms include pain or burning when you urinate, needing to go often, the need to go suddenly, or blood in the urine.

U.T.I.'s are normally treated with antibiotics for three to seven days, or two weeks at the most.
