Women are especially more prone to urinary tract or bladder infections as they have shorter urethra (the tube that allows discharge of urine from the bladder), allowing bacteria quicker and easier access to the bladder. After having an infection treated, it may be best for a woman to work on ways that may help prevent another experience of a UTI. I also came across some posts from this site bladderslingrecall.us that may be of help to those who may be affected.

UTIs may also bring about irritation to the bladder, causing increased urges to pass urine which, in some cases, may result to urine leakage. I also found from bladdermeshlawsuit.us/symptoms -of-failure/ that severe cases of urinary incontinence may only be treated through surgery using mesh devices which have been apparently linked to serious complications in many recipients.
