Constipation

LUTD often coexists with constipation. Constipation plays a substantial role in the development of recurrent UTI. Rectal distention can compress the adjacent bladder neck and trigonal region leading to detrusor overactivity and possibly bladder outlet obstruction. The correlation between constipation and UTI may be due to increased uropathogenic organisms in the gastrointestinal tract leading to recurrent infection
