UTIs


Women are generally more prone to UTIs than men, presumably due to the short urethra. Bacteria enter the bladder through this short urethra during inter course or "improper wiping." "Holding it" does not contribute to an increased risk of infection, but if the bacteria have gained entrance already, "holding it" provides a more stagnant environment for them to multiply.

Unlikely


Antibiotics should not affect your menstrual cycle, but stress can certainly delay menses. BUT some antibiotics can couneract efficacy of birth control pill, thus unprotected sex whilst on BCP can result in an unplanned pregnancy.

Is it normal to have 3 urinary tract infections in less than 2 months? Which consequences can it cause?

Answered by:
Dr. Jack Rubin
Nephrology and Dialysis

Frequent UTI's


It is not normal to have 3 UTI's in 2 months. The causes of these UTI's may be due to the fact that you have an anatomical problem leading to obstruction of your urine outflow tract. You should see a urologist to be evaluated for a possible obstruction and if one is present and resolved, you may not have any more UTIs. Good luck.
