    Women, children and the elderly are most at risk of getting a UTI. Approximately 1 in 3 women and around 1in 20 men will have a UTI in their lifetime. Women tend to develop UTIs more often than men due to their anatomy of having a shorter and straighter urethra, allowing bacteria to travel into the bladder easier. Although less common, men can get UTIs, particularly if they are unable to empty their bladder completely from an enlarged prostate.
