The most common bacterial infections in men are Urinary Tract Infections (UTI). 30-50% of men who get UTI will have a recurrence within 6-12 months despite receiving acute therapy. There are several organisms that can cause these, but Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Enterococcus faecalis, and Staphylococcus saprophyticus are the most prevalent ones. Other conditions include prostatitis, epididymitis, orchitis, cystitis, and urethritis. Men are susceptible to this, and it frequently significantly lowers quality of life. The severity of the discomfort, urinary problems, and quality of life restrictions were some of the outcomes. The personal psychosocial effects of male UTI recurrence are the main topic of this review. This research offers a review of chronic male UTI and its impact on Mental health. This study also looks at the several psychosocial factors such as pain, severity, and urine sensations may influence their quality of life.
