Does having a yeast infection cause you to have some what cloudy urine? I don't have UTI symptoms.

See answer: Vaginal yeast infection usually associated with whitish vaginal discharge, redness, vaginal irritation/burning/itching. If discharge mixes with the urine after leaving the bladder then may give contaminated urine a cloudy appearance. Urine, on the other hand, may normally vary from clear to cloudy depending on the effect of diet on urine ph: if too acid or alkaline causes precipitation of sediment. ...Read more

Tested 125 to 500 leu/uL. I have no symptoms of infections. Girlfriend has UTI. I have one kidney. Sometimes we have anal sex. Need I be concerned?

Tested 125 to 500 leu/uL. I have no symptoms of infections. Girlfriend has UTI. I have one kidney. Sometimes we have anal sex. Need I be concerned?

Yes: Anuses are not designed to tolerate the physical trauma and friction damage that anal sex causes... tissue damage occurs. Best to use the middle hole (the vagina). Also, there are billions of bacteria coming down into the anal-rectal area all day long... such as E. coli, Klebsiella, and all sorts of other species. ...Read more

Was seen for a UTI but later told there was no infection in urine and to discontinue antibiotics. I still have reoccurring symptoms but no uti?

Was seen for a UTI but later told there was no infection in urine and to discontinue antibiotics. I still have reoccurring symptoms but no uti?

Other possibilities: I'm sorry you are having problems. With the information you've provided it is hard to guess what is happening. If there is an extra sensation then yeast infection, std, bacterial vaginosis, cystitis are possibilities. If the problem is too frequent urination common considerations would include fluid intake and diabetess i hope you get better quickly, if you don't though, see your doctor again. ...Read more

No UTI according to ua and culture but all symptoms like urgency and frequency went away after finishing macrobid, think had a UTI or just coincidence?

Have pain every time i urinate, test negative for infections. I have UTI symptoms, flank pain, history of kidney stones but no blood in urine, help?!

Have pain every time i urinate, test negative for infections. I have UTI symptoms, flank pain, history of kidney stones but no blood in urine, help?!

May still be a UTI: Usually, pain on urination (dysuria) is a symptom of a UTI from which the offending bacteria can be grown from the urine. Less commonly dysuria can occur from the irritation of passing a kidney stone alone (i.e. Not a uti). In other situations, the laboratory can't isolate the microbe because it's too difficult to grow in culture (e.g. Chlamydia)- in that case, you may still actually have a uti. ...Read more

Pain in my penis had a urinary tract infection testing don't have that?

Painful Penis: Like most doctors a little bit of information stimulates more questions than answers. I would want to know when your UTI was; what medication was used: if you have a history of herpes exposure; what sexual activity you have had recently; and, what happens with good hydration and cranberry juice. This very well may be a temporary post treatment irritation and should clear up soon. ...Read more

I took macrobid 2x/5 days for a severe uti. I have Interstitial Cystitis & now have kidney pain.Would Clindamyacin help w/kidney infection?

I took macrobid 2x/5 days for a severe uti. I have Interstitial Cystitis & now have kidney pain.Would Clindamyacin help w/kidney infection?

Different Antibiotic: If you have kidney pain, you need to be re-evaluated for a kidney infection. Clindamycin is NOT going to help by itself and is NOT the standard of outpatient therapy for a possible kidney infection. You should have your urine rechecked and make sure that they do a urine culture in addition to the urinalysis. They can start you on Macrobid twice daily until the results are back. ...Read more
