Things you need to know about sex and urinary tract infections

A urinary tract infection is an infection that affects part of the urinary tract and it is also known as acute cystitis or bladder infection. They can be passed between partners during sex.

 

First of all, what are Urinary tract infections (UTIs)?

Simply put, a urinary tract infection is an infection that affects part of the urinary tract and it is also known as acute cystitis or bladder infection.

UTIs affect organs in the urinary tract group of organs responsible for processing urine, including:

  1. The kidneys – a pair of organs that filters blood and removes waste.
  2. The bladder – the organ that stores urine.
  3. The ureters – two tubes that connect the kidneys and bladder
  4. The urethra – the tube from which urine (and semen during ejaculation) exit the body

According to science, UTIS are caused by bacteria that find their way into the urinary tract through urethra and into the organs.

When you have a UTI, you have the following symptoms:

  1. A burning feeling when you urinate, making it difficult
  2. A frequent or intense urge to urinate, even though little comes out when you do
  3. Pain or pressure in your back or lower abdomen
  4. Cloudy, dark, bloody, or strange-smelling urine
  5. Feeling tired or shaky
  6. Fever or chills (a sign the infection may have reached your kidneys)
  7. Discharge

It is important to note that women are more vulnerable to UTIs than men because of the anatomy of the penis and vagina:

  1. a woman’s urethra is closer to her vagina and anus than the man, making it easy for bacteria to enter
  2. a man urethra runs for the length of his penis, giving the bacteria longer route

Note that UTIs are not normally sexually-transmitted infections (STIs), but they can be passed between partners during sex.

This is the reason why condoms are always recommended.
