Shouldn't


Urinary tract infections should not cause confusion except in the elderly or if associated with septicemia and severe sepsis. If a patient suffers from confusion they should be immediately evaluated by a physician to evaluate for serious illness.

Vitamins and UTI


There is no vitamin that can cure UTI's and yeast infections. Vitamin C acidifies the urine and makes it harder for bacteria to grow and cause UTI's and it is not a cure. If you have frequent UTI's, a urologist may be able to help them from happening again, if you have some type of obstruction that can be relieved. Yeast infections need medication. Good luck.

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.

Yes


All bladder infections are urinary tract infections, but not all urinary tract infections are bladder infections. You could have a kidney infection (pyelonephritis), which would be a UTI, but more serious than a bladder infection (cystitis).

UTIs are usually associated with bladder pain/burning, with no external tender lesions. Genital herpes is characterized classically by surface, very tender ulcers, where the pain is localized. Hope this helps!
