Can you capture a UTI if even if you use a condom?
we used a condom every time, but i still got a uti. it doesn't make sense.
Answers: Do you know what a UTI is? It stands for Urinary Tract Infection. Is is not transmitted sexually. It is from germs getting into then Urethra and later traveling to your Bladder. A females Urethra is very, very short and it is very unforced to have germs introduced in to it. You boyfriend can't give you a UTI. In certainty, because a male has a much, much longer Urethra (the tube that carries the urine from your bladder so that you can "pee" it out) it is exceptionally rare for men to even get them. You can't give him a UTI any. You can get them from the condoms that you have been using, from taking baths, not going to the bathroom right after intercourse and "flushing out" any germs that you could hold from the condom, his hands not being clean and him touching you, etc. If you be prescribed an antibiotic take it as directed, refrain from intercourse until you are completely healed, and drink plenty of marine and/or cranberry juice to help dilute and flush out any bacteria. You may want to parley to your doctor about Sexually Transmitted Diseases or even look it up on the internet to educate yourself better about what they are and aren't and how you can go and get them and how to protect yourself form getting them. It sounds as if you have gotten wrong information along the way and the best way to maintain yourself safe is to get properly educated something like it.
You might try drinking a daily glass of cranberry juice. You also might enjoy to see a urologist for a more specific evaluation... maybe you have a chronic bacteria explicitly resistant to the antibiotic you have been taking and it just knock it down enough to allow you to reinfect yourself with the situation mentioned previously. A urine culture and sensitivity might be in demand.
Some people have to take a specific low dose antibiotic prophalactically and modified as uniquely prescribed by a urologist. There really is rationale that make sense for what you are experiencing... but, you will be healthy and happier if you seek a urologist that can appreciate the frustration you are going through. The condom idea is well-mannered in your case... till this all get figured out. Good Luck!
