I went to my work restroom, sit on the toilet seat and realized it was a bit wet on the seat, may be a water spot, forgot and was finishing my task, then use the toilet paper to wipe a bit of the seats and forgot and used it to wipe myself but probably just the outside part. Just a split second that I realized that I shouldn’t use the tissue. Could i get UTI because of that?

Just scared

Thank you for the input.
I understand your anxiety.
It is less likely to get UTI from the act you described.
The contact of the tissue with skin was for a few seconds only.
There was no contact with urethra.
Please do not worry.
You should be fine.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I see so basically UTI actually occurred when there is a contact to the urethra and it is continuous rubbing the area for a certain time?

Yes. You are right.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
