Viral or ureaplasma: Or mycoplasma can are causes of non-bacterial or non-specific urethritis as can other non-bacterial conditions like Reiters syndrome (which is associated with burning sensation in eyes). Ureaplasma & mycoplasma urethritis may respond to erythromycin, Jiaxin, or tetracyclines none of which are standard antibiotics for urinary infections. Discuss with Ur Dr.

See your MD for w/u: I assume urine culture & sensitivity done on previous 2 urinary tract infections. This test gives information regarding which bacteria caused the infection & which antibiotics are the best choice. If this was done & you continue to have infections, see your physician for work up to determine why you have repeated UTI;s, May need Renal Ultrasound, urology referral, etc

Can the experts please talk about the most suitable antibiotic class used for urinary tract infections in general?

Depends: The best antibiotic is the narrowest spectrum, lowest side effect and least expensive drug that kills the bacteria causing the infection. A urine culture and sensitivity are nessesary to determine the proper antibiotic.

How soon after finishing my anitibiotics for a urinary tract infection can I have sex?

How soon after finishing my anitibiotics for a urinary tract infection can I have sex?

I believe anytime: Unless there is a specific issue with your condition, the type of antibiotic you are using or some very unusual problem, taking antibiotics should not preclude one from having intercourse. If a vaginal or penile condom is used, I cannot think of a reason otherwise. Take the antibiotics as prescribed and take care of yourself. See your doctor otherwise (call or return to clinic).

Is it possible for constipation to cause urinary problems?

Is it possible for constipation to cause urinary problems?

Yes: Your GI tract & urinary tract are very close to each other. When there is a large volume of stool in the GI tract, it may put pressure on your bladder. This can cause the bladder to not fill completely or empty when you don't want. See your doctor if you are having these symptoms so you can work out a plan to treat both problems.

Which STDs cause urinary problems?

Which STDs cause urinary problems?

Difficult to say...: You don't provide enough information for an accurate reply. Many STDs can cause symptoms that mimic other genital problems, like urinary tract infection. Most don't cause actual "urinary problems", but that depends on just what you mean. Can you say more about what symptoms you have had or why you are concerned?

Can pinched nerve cause urinary problems?

No: Urinary problems can be caused by spinal related issues, but it requires an extensive compressive issue to cause this degree of symptoms. If the amount of stenosis (compression) is sufficient to cause urinary issues it will likely lead to more symptoms such as numbness and pain.
