A urine infection is caused by bacteria found inside your body that travels from your bowel or your anus into your urethra and then into your urine. A urine infection is generally known as interstitial cystitis which means that you have a need to frequently pee and you may have cloudy urine.
The bladder gets infected when bacteria gets into the urethra. The presence of the bacteria leads to body-immune reaction to flush out the foreign body. However, bacteria can attach itself to the bladder wall and if that happens, they will multiply rapidly, which causes bladder infections.
