Can having sex with someone with a big penis cause a urinary tract infection?

Any sex might: The physical location of the urethra (opening to bladder) is just above the vaginal opening. Any sexual activity can drive germs into the urethra and allow their entry into the bladder, resulting in a urinary tract infection. Solo or partner related sex can do this in susceptable women. Those with the susceptability can reduce the frequency of infections by urinating after sex.

What can cause urinary tract infection?

3 ways: There are 3 ways that bacteria invade and infect the urinary tract, ascending, hematogenous and lymphatic spread. Ascending means bacteria ascend the urethra into the bladder. Hematogenous spread is when bacteria in the blood stream seed into the kidney tissue. Lymphatic spread is one way bacteria can get from the bladder into the kidney. The other is up the ureter.

Could bladder prolapse cause recurrent urinary tract infection?

Could bladder prolapse cause recurrent urinary tract infection?

Sometimes: If the bladder prolapse is making it difficult to empty your bladder then that can lead to urinary tract infections. A visit to your doctor to check how much urine is in your bladder after you void is a quick test to see if that is the cause of your infections.

Can a yeast infection cause you to get a urinary tract infection?

Can a yeast infection cause you to get a urinary tract infection?

Yes -yeast will help: Other germs. Think of it this way - the germs are having a 'party' at your expense. So if you have symptoms of urinary frequency, burning or discomfort, and/or abnormal smell or appearance of the urine - you could have a UTI as well as candidal vaginitis. Sorry! But your doc should be able to help - I recommend to call over there. A urinalysis will confirm the exact 'cause' of the infection.
