Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

I would like to learn more about prostate infection in younger men 25-30 yrs old and if a simple prostate infection can be heal with antibiotics?

Since cultures can't be easily obtained from the prostate, younger sexually active men at risk of std are usually treated with oral antibiotics which also cover clamydia and other std organisms as well. ...Read more

What causes vaginal boils can to much sex cause these if you are having sex with a male with a larger penis than you are use to

Doctor can evaluate: A doctor can evaluate to see if the boils are std infections that need medical treatment. Otherwise, small pimples and pustules in the pubic and genital areas that increase after an increase in sexual activity may be due to "poor technique" that causes too much skin-to-skin friction and abrasions, hurting the hair follicles. It's unrelated to penis size or quantity of sex, if using good technique. ...Read more

Is it possible for a female to get an STD in her urinary tract only (negative vaginal STD test) and appear to be a recurrent uti?

Are the chances high for a man to develop thrush after giving oral sex to a woman with a yeast infection??

Are the chances high for a man to develop thrush after giving oral sex to a woman with a yeast infection??

Very low chance: Thrush in a woman usually develops because of an underlying issue in the woman - if she has been on antibiotics or has a predisposition to vaginal yeast infection. It would be unlikely for a man to get oral thrush by cunilingus unless he too had a reason for getting it like immunosuppression or otherwise but then again it would be most unlikely to transmit it this way. ...Read more
