Would frequent utis (bladder infections) be caused by an std?

Would frequent utis (bladder infections) be caused by an std?

Almost never: Men with scarred/restricted urethra due to past STD can be susceptible to recurrent UTI, a rare complication these days.

See your doctor; this is often preventable with low dose antibiotic taken after sex or 1-2 times a week. ...Read more

Probably okay if...: Have you felt some change in your usual voiding pattern like burning urination or urethral discharge? Did you get urinalysis with properly collected fresh urine, which should be the minimal yet surest way to confirm if having UTI etc. What you described could be normal to reflect some amorphous phosphate sediment in alkaline urine followed with clear urine.

Why does sex burn my vagina? I don't have any type of STD and no bladder infection or uti. What could be the problem?. We do lube.

Water soluble lube?: If you are using a water soluble lube such as k-y or maxi lube then it is likely that you are experiencing either a ph reaction to his sperm or an allergy. Wearing a condom will rule out the latter. Semen is slightly alkaline and the vagina is mildly acidic and can cause a mild acid/base reaction in some women. ...Read more

I have been having painful urination over the past week. I got tested for STDs and everything came back normal. I've had a bladder infection before and think I have one now, i've been drinking plenty of water and am scheduled to see my doctor, but i'm won

Get urine checked: You can go back to see your doc, or you can go to an urgent care. Either place they'll have you pee in a cup and dip in a test strip, to check the chemistry of your pee. If it's an infection, you'll get an infection and if it burns, you'll get med for that. Keep the water going, and get antibiotics if you need 'em. ...Read more

How long can post infection inflammation  bladder last? Had UTI treated one month ago, just took tests again was negative for uti, std, yeast, BV etc.
