My boyfriend just found out he has a kidney infection and we've had intercourse multiple times this week and I'm 10 weeks pregnant. Do I have it too?

Probably not but: Most kidney infections caused by bacteria are not "contagious" but a few may be. Your risk of "having it too" is fairly small But it would be good to ask your obstetrician about having a urine test/culture to rule out the possibility that you may have an asymptomatic bacteriuria or an asymptomatic urinary infection caused by Group B Strep or other microorganism. Be safe. ...Read more

Yes: The physical trauma of sex can lead to bladder infections. Good lubrication and gentleness can go a long way to preventing injury and bleeding after sex. Drink plenty of fluids, and be sure to urinate immediately after you have sex (never sleep after sex unti you empty your bladder). Vitamin C and cranberry juice in your diet can also help reduce the chance of a bladder infection. ...Read more

Can having a kidney infection cause you to miss you period. I was suppose to get mine july 5th and haven't got it and the test are all negativa?

Possible: There are many things that can affect the menstrual cycle, as you know. However, I would think that the kidney infection would need to be rather significant accompanied by fever, chills, body aches. In other words, significant enough that it would affect hormonal and other bodily function. I do not feel that a simple bladder infection or a mild urinary tract infection would disturb the cycle. ...Read more
