Is a UTI contagious?

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common bacterial infections that develop in the urinary tract, including the urethra, kidneys and bladder. 

Generally speaking, these infections aren’t contagious. It’s highly unlikely for anyone to contract a UTI from a toilet seat, because the urethra in males and females wouldn’t touch the toilet seat.
