E Coli In Uterus
Not likely.: While anything is possible in medicine, even this, it is unlikely. The vagina has an acidic environment the kills most bacteria so the uterus does not get infected. Having said this, urinary tract infections from e.Coli can result from sexual activity, and moreover, venereal diseases, like chlamydia certainly can get to the womb and cause pelvic iflammatory disease, and infect the baby. ...Read more
Bacterial cause.: Urinary tract infections occur when pathogenic bacteria proliferate in the urine, causing inflammation in the urethra, bladder and sometimes the kidney. E. Coli is the most common cause, which is usually found in the colon but can contaminate the urine since the urethra and anus are in such close proximity. Infections are cleared with antibiotics, and should be confirmed by urine culture. ...Read more
Misdirected sewage: E coli is an inhabitant of the colon and is involved in digestion. It is easily dealt with in modern sewage treatment. If it gets loose into the soil or water supply, then it can become a hazard. It gets there from badly designed or old sewage systems or sometimes from septic systems too close to wells, and other water sources. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Stool sample shows heavy growth of nontoxogenic e. Coli & streptococcus salivarius. Is this abnormal/problematic?
No: Assuming you are not symptomatic, these bacterial organisms are considered part of the normal gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The GI tract starts at the mouth and ends at the anus. Strep salivarius lives in the mouth whereas E. coli lives in the intestines. In only very rare instances does this strep cause illness. The type of E. Coli mentioned causes UTIs since the urinary and GI tracts are so close ...Read more
Dangerous bacteria: Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) are bacteria found in various livestock (cows, swine, etc) which can lead to dangerous food borne illness.Recent outbreaks in Europe are due to a specific type of STEC called strain 0104:h4. In the USA E. coli o157:h7 is a more common strain.Each produces a toxin (shiga) which can disrupt colon cells causing bloody diarrhea or destroy kidney cells & lead to HUS. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Coli gain a foothold?" anything from a stone, a malformation, not drinking water, being unaccustomed to sex, a jackass boss making you hold it. Prostate disease -- try to find the true cause that let the infection get started. ...Read more
Been prescibed trimethoprim 300mg for e coli in urine. Suspected in vagina, offensive odour. Will antibiotics clear up vaginal e coli?
In vitro, yes but...: In vivo, it would render your fish dish unpalatable and rather expensive. Since silver ions (single free-form silver) produce free radicles that can kill bacteria(the process can be done in a petri dish), it would mean impregnating and infusing your fish with silver- yuck. ...Read more
Bowel to bladder: Significant amount of stool consists of e. Coli bacteria, & thus skin in perineal area is not unusually colonisd by bowel e. Coli. There is very little disnance from anus to urethral opening in women, & women's urethras avery short, so it is very easy e. Coli bacteria to reach the bladder. Most women secrete vaginal immunoglobulins which can be bacteriocidal, & one reason why most women r UTI free. ...Read more
Strep staph: Nares and anus.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not exactly: You're right to prompt the question, in that bacteria can be made more virulent by uptake of "signals" from a bacteriophage. Also, an e.Coli infection does not preclude a superimposed or secondary viral illness--which together compromises the host patient more than a single infection might. However, flu viruses can not live within e.Coli. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

May depend on how: Full your bladder was. A full bladder will lift the uterus up. An empty bladder provides room in the anterior pelvis for the uterus to drop into. Also, were both us examinations the same? Transvaginal would have an empty bladder and transabdominal a full bladder. Finally, having stool in the rectum and sigmoid colon would displace the uterus upwards and forward. ...Read more
