Why is a Woman more Susceptible to Infections than Men


Why do women easily get an infection than men?

While infection is not limited to women alone, a woman's anatomy is the culprit here. The length of the urethra and location of the urethral opening makes them susceptible to infection. 

The length of a woman's urethra is very short with no more than 1.5 inches long, while that of the man is long between 7 and 8 inches. This difference means that bacteria need to travel far before they can infect the man's bladder or other urinary part; and they can get flushed out when urinating before they get the opportunity to grow and form a colony.
