Amesszz; You have a bunch of great answers, I just want to add if the stuff does not help for the Infection or you continue to get infections. Have yourself checked for allergies etc? I have had several ladies that after sex had to take one sulfa pill with a full glass of water because they were allergic to semen or just the irritation. And they never had to use a cream or antibiotic again. Chuck1957 Just food for though
Shell is correct, many women are prone to what used to be called "honeymoon cystitis" which is basically a UTI caused from sexual friction and hygiene. Bacteria from in and around the rectal area (e coli is one of the most common culprits for UTI and these bacteria are in abundance in the digestive tract) can be brought to the vaginal area and sexual friction can drive them into the urethra (urinary opening). It helps to shower or at the very least wash the genital and anal areas with soap and water prior to sex and always always always void your bladder (pee) immediately after sex (drink a glass of water prior to sex if you need to) this will help clear the urethra of any bacteria that may be forced in there by sexual friction. I know this kind of puts a bit of a damper on spontaneity but it is worth it not to have a UTI started! There are some other measures you can take too but these are the most important.
If you try these things above and still having problems, private message me and I can tell you some of the other things privately. Oh also be sure to drink lots of water all day, the more you void your bladder, the less likely bacteria has a chance to "take hold" in your bladder. Water is the best thing to drink as it can be used immediately by your body without processing. Try to limit coffee and tea because they actually dehydrate you because they make you release more fluid than you take in. Most people never drink enough water. If you dont like your tap water, you can drink bottled water or get a purifier (I love my RO filter). Once you get used to drinking water, you will be surprised that in water is what you will want when you are thirsty. Try to drink at least 64 ounces of water a day. Hope this helps!
Like shell mentioned above, it does help to take Vitamin C. Vit C helps to make the bladder wall "slippery" so bacteria cant cling to the bladder wall and colonize and it also helps make the urine more acidic and most bacteria prefer a non acidic environment. Cranberry works too but mainly it is the Vitamin C in cranberry that helps as cranberry is very high in Vit C. You dont really have to do both Vit C and cranberry, you can do one or the other.
Another cause for repeated UTIs is the formation of a fistula - an opening between the bowel and the bladder usually from diverticulitis.
It's far reaching but a possibility.
No you can not get it from him. Although sometime when there is too much friction you can. It is an infection and at times due to improper hygiene like wiping wrong. I had them also but once gone, I now treat the bladder . Doctor said to keep it clean take vitamin c 1,000 unit a day. Also take cranberry pills every day.
Google how to keep urinary track clean. There are multiple things to take to keep it clean from outside in.good luck.
I doubt that he is giving it back to you. UTI's are bad for anyone but I can't imagine a man going for even two weeks with one. I've had two in my life; the first 38 years ago and I can still vividly remember the torment I went through (because I didn't tell anyone) and peeing blood stained urine every 15 minutes. The second was about 7 years ago and Bactrim cleared it up an absolute treat.
I think it more likely that you may have developed a antibiotic resistant infection that may need hammered with something stronger. Clearly a doctor is called for and maybe keep a diary as to record when these infections crop up also?
PS. While you are being treated for an infection and do yourself a favor and use condoms; also, some (most?) boys ideas of personal hygiene are pretty horrifically poor. So make him wash his hands properly before he starts 'handling' things.
