Best Answer

A urinary tract infection, if let go and not taken care of, could in fact spread to the bowels. In some ways, this is highly unlikely, but all things considered, it is just a lot of bacteria that are growing and culturing in your body. This should be treated immediately and taken care of well until the infection goes away, as this could lead to serious health complications later.
