Can UTI cause loss of appetite? Recurring uti even with antibiotics. No symptoms of usual uti

Unlikely: An 'ordinary' UTI should have symptoms localized to the urinary system, such as burning. However, if the infection travels beyond the bladder, then other symptoms like nausea/vomiting could occur. I wonder if your nausea is coming more from meds you might be taking FOR the UTI. What did the doc give you? Also, to confirm a UTI I need 2 things - a urinalysis AND a urine culture. Hope this helps. ...Read more

However, if you are at risk for STD, maybe your pain is pelvic inflammatory disease (Fallopian tube infection), which can be serious. ...Read more

In this stage you feel the nausea and vomiting, because stuff just does not want to go through. It's usually later that the body tries to "wash out the virus" by dumping more fluids in the gut to try and wash out the virus - and then boom, diarrhea. So early on you may not poop at all. ...Read more

Is sexual activity one of the commonly recognized causes of urinary tract infections?

Yes: It's common for a woman to get a urinary tract infection shortly after she begins having intercourse. The anatomy and physics send the bacteria up the urethra into the bladder.
