Avatar n tn Problems with sexual responses or orgasms may stem towards a psychological cause apart from physical factors. The urinary tract infection by itself may not cause orgasm problems unless there is associated pain, redness or discharge in the genitals that may interfere with sexual enjoyment. In your case, you may still be worried of having the UTI and this may deviate your focus. Have a repeat urinalysis done just to be sure.This will also allay your fears and concerns.

Avatar f tn If physical exercises and medications have been ruled out then infectious and structural factors need to be considered. This includes urinary tract infections and kidney stones. You had previous urinary tract infections (is this correct?).This may be contributory. Your cystoscopy showed slight inflammation. The cause of which may be also be infectious in nature. I suggest that you decide to wait for the next consult. Drink plenty of water and eat well. Exercise daily also .

738333 tn?1232967475 Hi, The most common cause of kidney infection is the backward flow of infected urine from the bladder to the upper urinary tract. Bacterial infections also may be carried to one or both kidneys through the bloodstream or lymph glands from infection that began in the bladder. Kidney infection also results from urine that becomes stagnant due to obstruction of free urinary flow.
Avatar n tn The infection can move up to your kidneys quite quickly. Urinary tract infection is not serious in females, but in males it is.

Avatar m tn Hi, Aside from the burning sensation, what other symptoms are present? This could be due to a urinary tract infection which may occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply in the bladder. Risk factors include not drinking enough water, not urinating when there is the urge to urinate or history of recurrent UTI, among others, A repeat urinalysis may help rule this out. Hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn The cause of most UTIs is bacteria that initially settle (colonise) around the urethra (urine tube), and then ascend into the rest of the urinary tract. Factors that can cause this to happen include incomplete urinary emptying, hygiene of the urethra, prostate inflammation, urethra narrowing, bladder reflux disease (usually due to leaky valves between the bladder and ureter tubes that connect to the kidneys and diabetes etc. It is better to get a urine examination and urine culture done.

Avatar n tn You may not even have to bring your dog in for an exam if the urine is positive for a simple urinary tract infection (an infection without crystals). The vet can simply give appropriate antibiotics. If your dog has crystals in his urine, the crystals would need to be identified and treatment instituted. Crystals can be dangerous in male dogs because if they become large enough they can become lodged in the urethra and cause blockage (even in dogs, though more common in male cats).

Avatar m tn When this crystals have formed,their further development in the urinary tract depends on the amount of time that they shall stay adhered in the lining of the of the urinary tract.As the stone develops,it is important that there should be a basic foundation that will give them their specific character.This is in the form of organic matter called the matrix (1). Stones may have formed in the upper urinary tract and lodged themselves later on in the bladder.
Avatar m tn Hi, If it is as small as you estimate - the ultrasound may be a better tool. If it is also as small as you say, chances are it is not causing the symptoms. If there is pain, chances are that there is an infection. The infection usually comes from the urinary tract. If you don't have any risk factors for sexually acquired infections - then your doctor may consider an anomalous urinary tract and evaluate this possibility. Pain may also come from overlaps in the nerves.
