What is the urinary tract?

Your body cleans itself by making urine to get rid of things it doesn’t need.

The path that urine takes through your body is called your urinary tract.

Urinary tract infections are a common type of infection in the body.

Your urinary tract can become infected if germs from outside or inside of your body get into your urinary tract.
