A 20-year-old female asked:

If i gave oral sex to someone with proteus mirabilis, would it be passed on to me? i know the uti can't be passed, but what about the bacteria itself?

No: In someone with a uti, you cannot pick up this bacteria. Uti means urinary tract infection. This is just a term for bacteria in the urine causing an infection.
