Are bladder infections and UTIs the same thing?Bladder infections are one kind of UTI. The urinary tract has four major parts: the kidneys and ureters (which connect the kidneys to the bladder) in the upper part, and the bladder and the urethra (the tube that you urinate through) in the lower part. Learn more about the urinary tract.
When you have an infection in either the lower or the upper urinary tract, your bladder can feel "irritable" (giving you a feeling of discomfort and a feeling that you need to empty your bladder frequently). Because of this, sometimes people refer to UTIs as “bladder infections,” even when the infection is in another part of the urinary tract. Learn more about where the infection is located.
