If fecal matter gets into the urinary tract of an adult female causing bladder infections why is the same not true of female infants?
I don't think it's more likely, but it's just as possible pregnant or not pregnant.
Answer . \nSometiimes the infection affects both he bladder and the vagina.\n. \nAnd some vaginal infections make it very sore when you pee.\n. \nGet checked by a docotr.
NO, NO, NO....bladder infections are not contagious! Yeast infections are. I was very prone to bladder infections, so I talked to my doctor about it. Although they are not contagious, which means you can't pass it on, it may be painful or uncomfortable. I would suggest you not have any sexual interc…ourse until it is gone. Answer Yes. If your boyfriend has a bladder infection your are more than likely going to get it. But there is a chance you may not. If I were you and to be on the safe side, I would not take the chance. Also, if you have a bladder infection, you can pass it on to him, and he may not know it. Bladder infections are no fun, I get them a lot. So, please spare yourself and just wait until it's gone.

Yes, two such examples are STDs, such as syphilis and gonorrhea. Just to clarify, syphilis and gonorrhea are sexually transmitted infections, but are not the cause of urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women. A typical UTI in the female is caused by the bacteria know as e. coli, which is commonly… found in the digestive tract. Usually this is caused by incorrect wiping (back to front) after going the bathroom. When a woman has a UTI, she can not pass it to her partner during sex because the bacteria is residing in the urinary tract and not the vagina. If a woman does have syphilis or gonorrhea, those types of infections will reside in a woman's vagina and can most definitely be passed to the partner during unprotected sex. (MORE)
In males, it seems possible since the sperm cells pass through theurinary tract. As they are cells can be infected by bacterial orother micro-pathogens to become sterile and ineffective infertility of the ovum. A more likely cause for infertility would beorgan damage, and the testes are quite a ways… from the areas thattend to get infected. In females the urinary tract is distinctly separate and in no waycan effect fertility unless bacterial infection enters the femalereproductive tract to infect the ovum or cause internal damage. Itwon't affect fertility in females as the urinary tract has nothingto do with the genital tract. (MORE)
Urinary tract infections is commonly caused by bacteria that enterthe urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply in thebladder. The infection can be treated with Chinese herbal medicinenamed diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill safely and effectively.
No. Home pregnancy tests detect the hormone hCG, not byproducts of infection. Infections do not cause the hormones to be released.
The most common causes of an UTI (urinary tract infection) in children are: 1. an uncircumcised penis 2. poor hygiene 3. anatomical anomalies within the urinary tract. Essentially, bacteria from the anal area find their way into the urethra and subsequently make their way into the bladder (cystitis)… and may perhaps all the way up into the kidneys (pyelonephritis). or not drinking enough water. And not cleaning yourself after having sex. Addition: While An uncircumcised penis can trap the bacteria which leads to a UTI it is however not the cause,Poor personal hygiene of an uncircumcised penis would be the cause.The failure to wash before and after sexual intercourse...Also the failure to wash properly before changing from vaginal to anal intercourse and vise-versa.

Antibiotics, of course, kill bacteria. Taking them would actually kill any infection in the urinary tract, not cause it, however, since urine flushes out toxins and waste from your body, you still could get inflammation in your urinary tract, therefore causing the same irritation as an UTI. You may …also experience diarrhea as a result. (MORE)
Bladder infections (called cystitis ) are a type of urinary tract infection. The urinary tract includes the kidneys, the ureters, the bladder, and the urethra.
Much to our surprise, my mother in-law experienced this very thing. She was exhibiting increasing confusion, depression and erratic behavior for about a month. It culminated in her beating the windshield of my car with a shovel one morning, and she said that she didn't know why. We of course took he…r to a crisis center and then to the ER. They did find that she was low in potassium and of all things had a urinary tract infection. The doctor in the ER told us that elderly people especially seem to have a dementia type response to UTIs. I had never heard of this before. The interesting thing is that my co-worker's grandmother experienced a similar state caused by UTIs including walking away from her adult family care home with a picture frame with her family's picture. She told the neighbor who helped her that she was "going to find her family". Another time, she thought she "needed to go home because her parents were going to miss her" - she was in her 90s, and she was surprised to realize that her parents would have to be 120 years old if they were still alive. I have searched and searched for information about this syndrome, and find only brief mentions in articles. I think that more people need to be aware of this. (MORE)
You will need to see a doctor and have prescribed a course of antibiotics, which you must take until the course is finished.
The real answer is we don't know. That being said, there is a lot of speculation that the inflammatory response causes a release of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines which cause a dissociation in neurotransmitters, presumably affecting the hippocampus. . Fluid and electrolyte abnormalities …are frequently encountered as contributing factors in elderly delirium. Dehydration coupled with electrolye and/or glucose imbalance (and inflammatory markers that change blood flow and composition) may be at the heart of the process underlying delirium caused by UTIs. This process remains poorly understood. (MORE)
The cause of urinary tract infection occurs when bacteria gets intothe urine from the urethra and travels into the bladder. If leftuntreated it can also travel to the kidneys.
Because they have a short urethra, which is physically close to the anus, and which is prone to trauma during sexual intercourse.
I am not a physician and if you are experiencing any pain or other symptoms in the urinary tract you must get to you physician right away; urinary tract infections can be serious. As a non-physician, I will offer the opinion that sperm in and of itself is not dirty or diseased, unless there are othe…r serious problems with health. An infection would be caused by the entry of germs somehow into the urinary tract, and not by sperm or by seminal fluid. (MORE)
The answer to this question is because the urethra ( urine canal ) is shorter in a female than a male thus making females more prone to getting urinary track infections. Javen W.
No, but occasionally a woman will feel a urinary discomfort if the ring presses against her urethra. If you are experiencing frequent discomfort, get a urine culture (not just a dipstick test) to confirm infection. If it's negative, perhaps Nuva Ring is causing discomfort and you need talk with your… health care provider about options. (MORE)
First, the infection itself shouldn't interfere with conception unless you're in such poor health with it that you can't have sexual intercourse!. If you already have a urinary infection and are taking antibiotics, there's a theoretical possiblility of interference, but I wouldn't count on it.. In… general, the answer is "NO".. Be aware, however, of the distinction between VENEREAL DISEASE and UTI or URINARY TRACT INFECTION. Some venereal infections can damage reproductive organs if untreated, leading to reproductive difficulties. (MORE)
Yes, lower urinary infections in the bladder can travel upwards tobecome a much more serious kidney infection, known aspyelonephritis. While you can kill inflammation by using Diuretic anti-inflammatorypill .You will be OK in a short time.
Oh god, yes. I have recently had a spout of UTIs where the ONLY symptoms were chronic nausea and fatigue. You should absolutely see your doctor if you suspect a UTI...the sooner you get help the sooner you can stop feeling miserable!
UTIs are not caused from STDs, but some UTIs (chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and herpes) can cause symptoms similar to those of UTI. if you are at risk for sexually transmissible infections, ask your health care provider to test you as appropriate. chlamydia
Some people who take hydrochlorothiazide have reported urinarytract infections as a side affect. This side affect has beenreported by those who have osteoporosis, high blood pressure,multiple sclerosis, and chronic pain.
Is there an infection males can get in their urinary tracts that may cause a female to get chlamydia?
Yes. Men get chlamydia, too. That can cause a female sex partner to get chlamydia. There is no other urinary tract infection in men that will cause a woman to get chlamydia.
Yes and other infections as well if he doesn't properly clean himself regularly. Bacteria builds up insids the hood of the penis so it's necessary to get the nooks and cranies during shower or before sexual intercourse.
Urinary tract infections are more common in females because the female urinary tract is much closer to the outer layers of the skin than would be in a male. The UTI is close to the vagina and rectum making it more susceptible to infection caused by waste excreted from the body. Student Nurse
I believe that the cause for a 7 year old female to have a bladder infection is because she probably isn't wiping herself properly. I see a lot of little kids wiping themselves starting from their anal to their vagina. Therefore bacteria is near and enters the vagina which causes a bladder infection…. Another reason why she would probably have it is because she isn't drinking enough water to wash it out. (MORE)
Around 75% of UTIs in women are caused be E Coli, an organism naturally found in the lower intestines. When introduced to the female urinary tract, E Coli's finds a hospitable spot breed and grow.
1. Bacterial infection. 2.Fungal infection. 3.viral infections 4. unhygenic use in unclean liquids/water are the main causes. There are many causes 1. fungal infection, which can be contracted by having sex with a women of who has fungal infection. 2. Bacterial infection caused by bad hygeine. 3. …Viral infections 4. Chemicals/allergic conditions. Not urinating right after sex can cause urinary tract infections in woman. Answer Bacteria (MORE)
I'm not sure what you mean by "empty" but normally urinary tract infections make you feel like you have to urinate all of the time.
Yes, this is more common on people that already have a seizure disorder such as epilepsy. Repeated infections can lower the seizure threshold. Also, antibiotics used to treat UTIs, especially fluoroquinolones, can increase seizure activity in epileptics. Fevers are sometimes present with UTIs, and f…evers can also produce seizures. This is more likely in an elderly patient with diminished blood flow to the brain. If the person is unable to communicate that they are in pain due to a stroke or other reason, they also may be more likely to have a seizure. (MORE)
No. It does not work that way. But you could get a UTI from pool water coming in contact with your urethra, depending on how sensitive you are from such things.
There can be many. It could be an infection or autoimmune disease s it would be best to see a doctor.
The most common cause of urinary tract infections in men is E. coli, though other bacteria can cause it too.
Cats usually contracts urinary infections from not drinking enough water and the urine becomes too concentrated. This can occur if the cat is fed only dry food, as cats have evolved to derive water from its prey/food, so will not often drink from a bowl like a dog readily does. Pet cats, like their …wild ancestors and cousins, are still designed to get their moisture from their food. Cats naturally have a low "thirst drive" and will not often seek out water on their own unless severely dehydrated. Aside from food, some cats can contract a UTI from being overly stressed. (MORE)
Because of smaller length of urethra as compared to males, females are more susceptible to urinary tract infection.
While most doctors would say that it cannot be transferred sexually, some believe that the prostatitis pathogens can be passed back and forth between couples.
Yes. Some medications can and will cause UTI or even in some cases Yeast Infections. Talk to your doctor before taking or continuing any medication you deem questionable.
I have been suffering from infected tooth for 2 months ,been on antibiotic on and off (full course) now for the last 10 days the tooth infection came back and for the past 3 days i started feeling UTI. I think UTI is caused by the tooth infection specially that i have low white blood cells since lon…g time. I think Yes it causes somehow the UTI specially if your immune system is not strong.

Existing within and around the tube-like structure that carries urine from the bladder (urethra) of about 5% of healthy males and females, S. saprophyticus is the second most common cause of unobstructed urinary tract infections
For one thing, our urethras are shorter and it's easier for the germs to get to their final destination.
There may be bacteria in or around the urethra but they normally cannot enter the bladder. A catheter can pick up bacteria from the urethra and allow them into the bladder, causing an infection to start
Answer:YES A (UTI) can occur from seafood in two ways. 1...From Vibrio parahaemolyticus - halophilic, facultative anerobic, rod bacterium that causes a food-borne illness known as seafood poisoning. Usually transmitted through eating raw or undercooked seafood such as shrimp,oysters,clams,scallops …ect. 2... (UTI) can be caused by ingesting food contaminated with E. coli which is a common bacteria found in animals.Seafood can become tainted with E. coli after the cooking process if safe handling procedures are not followed in the kitchen, (IE) A person handles raw meat such as beef or chicken then (without washing hands afterwards) handles any food that is ready to be eaten.. There are also other sources in a kitchen from which E. coli can be transmitted if the safe handling of cooked foods is not followed such as the sink,counter tops,microwave,pots,pans,trays,kitchen towels,sponges ect.. (MORE)
Yes, you can, because the UTI is caused by a bacteria, and the yeast infection is caused by a strain of yeast.
What anatomical feature in females is responsible for the higher level of urinary tract infections in females?
Because females have a shorter urethra, they have a better chance of getting an urinary tract infection.
Urinary tract infection usually causes frequency and burning sensation on urination. It can cause discomfort in the rectum if the bladder is full and not emptying properly. In fact one of the causes of infection can be large volume of residual urine due to incomplete emptying of the bladder which ca…n be easily detected with a renal tract ultrasound examination (MORE)
Yes it could. Any infection in the urethra (the final passage way to the outside) or in the bladder could spread up ( ascending infection) to any or both kidneys.
No, penis size cannot cause a Urinary Tract Infection. UTI usuallyoccurs from bacteria getting into the urethra and going to thebladder.
Yes, some types of stones are especially good in causing or perpetuating urinary tract infections.
I think the chronic cough makes your diaphragm press on your bladder causing you to feel like you might need to urinate. Which in turn makes you squeeze whatever muscle that helps you hold your urine in because you don't want to urinate in your pants and that can cause a UTI. I just came home from t…he ER and I had a sinus infection for almost 3 weeks and I just found out I have a severe UTI that lead to a Kidney Infection. But keep in mind I have a weakened immune system because I have diabetes so my body can't fight off infection that good. (MORE)
