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

Sometimes it's a problem in the urethra & not the bladder (irritative or infective). You might consider a Urologist especially since you're pregnant ...Read more

Hematuria: It is not clear as to whether the blood in your urine is actually from vaginal contamination of the specimen. It is always possible that you could have a STD, since if you are having unprotected sex this is always a risk. Do not know what test was negative, but would advise you to see a doctor, provide a full detailed history and be re-examined, diagnosed and treated if necessary. ...Read more

However during pregnancy a safer choice may be probiotics. ...Read more
