infection

Avatar n tn You can get a bacterial infection from having sex with someone who has one or just from having poor hygiene in general. What type of bacterial infection do you mean?
Avatar m tn Based on my experience, blood in the urine was due to urinary tract infection. I felt pain in my vagina when passing urine and drops of blood came out after the urine. My gynecologist gave me antibiotics to treat the infection. If your wife feels the same, better take her to the doctor immediately.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to urethral trauma after a rough anal intercourse or due to urinary tract infection but without investigations, it is very difficult to rule out Chlamydia. Most males with Chlamydia do not have any symptoms at all. It is possible to get false positive or false negative results with the standard tests for Chlamydia.
Avatar f tn Im 90% sure that I have a urinary tract infection but I have additional symptoms that I dont usually have. My partner and I had sex several nights ago and I developed the usual symptoms: painful urination general discomfort frequent urination urine is cloudy and pink What is unusual is that I have clumps of something when I pee. They are pinkish is this a possible symptom that will pass just like the others?
4251679 tn?1370305531 UTIs are exactly what their name describes. and infection in your urinary tract. its not in your vagina, however, ive always been told not to have sex while you have one because sex could be the cause of it. and its best to make sure its all better before introducing even more bacteria. Ive never heard of it being contagious, and dont think that it is, but ask your doctor. and ive also never had a cream to use, so im not sure what thats for.
Avatar m tn Particularly among men over age 35 in whom the cause is E. coli, epididymitis is commonly due to urinary tract obstruction.[2] Less common microbes include Ureaplasma, Mycobacterium, and cytomegalovirus, or Cryptococcus in patients with HIV infection. E. coli is more common in boys before puberty, the elderly and homosexual men. Non-infectious causes are also possible. Reflux of sterile urine (urine without bacteria) through the ejaculatory ducts may cause inflammation with obstruction.
Avatar m tn Urinary incontinence is also seen in urinary tract infection. Other conditions causing these symptoms are any problems with the prostate gland which can cause overflow or stress urinary incontinence in men. Enlarged prostate putting pressure on the urethra or prostatitis are few other possibilities. Excessive drinking of alcohol, taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs like diuretics, sedatives, narcotics, or non-prescription cold and diet medicines can also cause these symptoms.
Avatar m tn Sounds like kidney or urinary tract infection. Call doc, see if you bring in a urine sample. If it is an infection, only antibiotics will help, nothing over the counter unfortunately - but believe me I love my heating pad. I even bring it with in the car with a power converter. I've had several kidney issues, and now am recovering from surgery for nutcracker syndrome and pelvic congestion syndrome (found both in men and women). Good Luck.

1415174 tn?1453243103 More women than men tend to get urinary tract infections especially in menopause. Men and women get more infections when they get older or hospitalized. You can just say yes ( you get a urinary tract infection) 2. no, rare 3. frequently. Are you male or female? Are you in menopause (if female)?
Avatar m tn Hi everyone. I am a guy and I have been diagnosed with a urinary tract infection. Specifically "Morganella Morganii." When the doctor told me she said the specific urinary tract infection I have is very rare in men and was "strange" I could get it. I have never had a urinary tract infection in my life. The timing of it seems odd as it comes only one week after I had sex with a female escort.
Avatar m tn You could have a urinary tract infection, urethritis (an infection in your urethra), an infection in your prostate - all which can be caused by other things than STDs. https://www.healthline.com/health/male-discharge-non-std How long has it been since you've been sexually active, including oral sex? Most men who get symptoms will get them within a couple of weeks after infection, depending on the infection, and it would be unusual to get them much later, but it's possible.
Avatar m tn A urinary tract infection is an infection that is anywhere along the urinary tract which starts in the kidneys and goes right the way through the ureter, bladder and urethra. The urethra is the urinary pipe that is located in the penis. Problems in the urinary tract can be caused by infections and also kidney stones. There is no way of knowing for sure if someone has kidney stones. Only imaging (xrays or ultrasound scan) would indicate if there were any stones or not.
Avatar n tn Burning pain during micturition (urination) is a symptom of Urinary Tract Infection. It is very common in females especially among those who are sexually active. Norflox is fine and should help it. Also you can consider keeping your genital area clean and then sitting in warm water with a bit of betadine solution in it. It disinfects and results are fast. If you are sexually active both you and your partner should practice clean sex that is wash your private parts both before and after sex.
Avatar f tn In the United States I don't believe this would happen. It would be grounds for a complaint against the physician and possible penalties. There would be no conceivable reason for him/her to do so. And a male can get urinary tract infection.
Avatar m tn (I had originally posted this question in the free forum section, but I think it best to get an expert opinion, so I am reposting it here) It's common knowledge and has been recommended for ages that women urinate immediately after sexual intercourse to help prevent contracting urinary tract infections (UTIs). The idea being to flush whatever bacteria might have wandered around or into the urethra during sex, such as bacteria found around the anus or from your partner, etc...
Avatar m tn Hi, i have seen here where men contract urinary track infections from oral sex as bacteria common in saliva is not common in the urethra but i you did have and infection, there should be some white discharge 2 weeks later. Gono can can be contracted by oral sex but you would have a white puss discharge around 5 days later not 2 weeks But since you have these symptoms obviously its related. These are called UTI,s which are not really considered STD.s.
Avatar f tn There is usually a co-factor, such as a depressed immune system. Bear in mind that a urinary tract infection may result from any one of several varieties of bacteria. Some of these critters are more dangerous than others. In some cases something as simple as drinking fresh cranberry juice and reinforcing your immune system with vitamin C and D3 can be sufficicient to solve the problem. In other cases medication may be necessary.
Avatar f tn Hi, Since you have a history of kidney stones it is the most likely cause for blood clots in urine, although infections in the urinary bladder and kidneys cannot be ruled out. Do keep us posted!
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm new to this site. A friend of mine suggested this site to me because I had some concerns about my sexual health. I'm a bi-sexual male who has sex with men and women but it's always protected sex. I never had unprotected vaginal or anal sex in my life. I've had several men and women performed unprotected oral and rimming on myself. I get myself checked every six weeks or so and the results are always negative except with the sometimes urinary tract infection.
