Constipation and urinary tract infections (UTIs) can definitely be linked. If you’re constipated, it can be more difficult to remove all the urine from your bladder. The bowel is overly distended with stool due to constipation. The distended bowel can put pressure on the bladder and interfere with complete voiding. When a little bit of urine remains in the bladder, there is more opportunity for bacteria to build up.
Anything that impedes the flow of urine can make you more prone to infection by E. Coli and other harmful bacteria. Do your best to avoid becoming constipated. Constipation not only increases the risk of UTIs but can lead to a whole wealth of other issues. UTIs can themselves lead to complications like pyelonephritis (kidney infection) and, in severe cases, bacteremia (bacteria in the blood).
