If I have a UTI can I past it to my wife during oral sex?

If I have a UTI can I past it to my wife during oral sex?

UTI: Very very unlikely. If you mean that your wife is performing fellatio and you are afraid that the organism causing UTI will infect her that is highly improbable. If, however, you have stds like syphilis, hiv, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and so on, then this is possible to be transmitted in that fashion. ...Read more

If I have UTI and I was given oral sex, what happens to my partner?

If I have UTI and I was given oral sex, what happens to my partner?

Usually nothing: Unless you have herpes, then he could develop that in the mouth. Uti is caused by bacteria that is usually resident in the perivulvar area anyway. He would be exposed to it whether you have UTI or not. ...Read more

Can men get a UTI by unprotected receptive oral sex? I'm worried because I got a UTI earlier in the year (not sure how) and want to avoid another.

Can men get a UTI by unprotected receptive oral sex? I'm worried because I got a UTI earlier in the year (not sure how) and want to avoid another.

UTI versus NGU: Unprotected oral sex can transmit some STDs (a lot less than vaginal or anal sex). One possibility is nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), which sometimes may be due to normal oral bacteria. Even though NGU is an infection and occurs in the urinary tract, it isn't normally called a UTI. Sometimes NGU is misdiagnosed as UTI, but these are separate problems. True UTI is rare (if ever) from oral sex. ...Read more

I have a UTI. Just started meds. Can I pass it to my partner giving or receiving oral sex? And standardized sex (vaginal)? w/ a condom **

Unsure, but...: Sexual act would not transmit bacterial UTi, but not sure for some asymptomatic STDs, which are common and transmissible with chlamydia, trich, even gono, HIV, etc. As examples. More? Seek evaluation/counseling so to ease current concern and avoid future worry. Best wish. .. ...Read more

Is it possible for a man to contract a UTI if he receives oral sex from a partner with untreated bacterial pneumonia?

Is it possible for a man to contract a UTI if he receives oral sex from a partner with untreated bacterial pneumonia?

AnythingPossibleBut-: Unlikely. In fact I'd say very unlikely. It is possible to contract urethritis from someone whose mouth is infected with Chlamydia or Gonorrhea but untreated pneumonia? No. I'm trying to imagine someone "administering" oral sex while coughing a lot. Hmmmm, might be...interesting. But in any event, if you have any UTI symptoms, get it checked out. You might have gotten it some other way. ...Read more

Hello, recently I received oral sex and now all of a sudden I feel like I have the urge to urinate more. I got tested and it wasn't a uti. Help pleas?

UTI vs STD/STI: Sexually transmitted diseases/infections (STDs/STIs) can present w/painful, frequent, urgent urination, just like urinary tract infections (UTIs). So you tested negative for UTI but it doesn't sound like you got tested for STD/STI. Once treated, make sure you use condoms in the future. And be sure to warn your partner, too. ...Read more

If not by toilet, how did both me and my mother come to have pain in urine at the same time? Could I have cought UTI from the oral sex?? What is this?

If not by toilet, how did both me and my mother come to have pain in urine at the same time? Could I have cought UTI from the oral sex?? What is this?

You may have: Infection related to oral sex. It may be a coincidence that your mother and you both have pain with urination at the same time. Contamination from the toilet is an unlikely way of getting these symptoms. However if you and your mother are medically worked up - that should help to clear up the question. Take care. ...Read more

Unclear question: Oral sex would not result in UTI.

Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
