Can anyone explain correlation with UTIs?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just have a couple questions if anyone can help out. I have read the herpes virus can cause UTIs. Since UTIs are mostly bacterial, how/why does herpes cause one? If it causes one, does that mean you are having an ob? Or just a UTI? Also, intercourse can cause UTIs. I understand how that can happen, just so confused why a virus would have something to do with a UTI. I had a UTI a couple weeks ago, took a week of antibiotics, then took the diflucan for potential yeast, and right now cannot tell if my UTI is gone. I just don't feel normal. I could have yeast, but I also feel like when I have to pee I don't pee enough for how I feel. It doesn't burn, but I feel like it's not right. Can anyone help? It's getting annoying, because lately I've been constantly fearing getting an ob, but instead I get a UTI and/or yeast, and have to go through a week each time of treatment, etc. I am still constantly thinking about my vagina and it's not always because of H! I feel like H has done so many different things to my vagina that it will never be normal. Otherwise I am pretty okay mentally about it lately. I have people I can talk to - some friends, my boyfriend and my Mom, and I have all of you here to talk to or to help out. This place makes me feel better. I also want to know if UTIs mean I am having an ob because my boyfriend is negative. If I keep getting UTIs or yeast, plus mixed with H, I feel like he and I will never be able to have sex. Dammit. Just had to say that. Thanks for any help! :)

I never had a UTI until I was diagnosed with HSV1. I knew something was wrong b/c i never felt burning when i peed before. then i got a yeast infection b/c of all the antibiotics. Yeah I can't explain it but it happened to me to. But if i had known what a UTI was like I probably wouldn't have gone back to the Dr. and would have never been diagnosed. BUt I haven't had any new outbreaks since the initial one. My body is very sensitive and I know when something is wrong because it reacts. I suggest drinking lots of H2O and cranberry juice and see if that helps. have you tried taking any supplements that increase immunity??? I also started taking Vitamin C, and I did a body cleanse which was great. try those things maybe it will help.

I never had a UTI with my hsv1 infection, The only symptom I had while peeing was when the urine came into contact with my open sores. That is when i tried not to pee, because i knew what would happen next. I did get BV with my initial outbreak. I would try to buy at the pharmacy a UTI home test kit and check your self at home they are pretty accurate. People that have hsv genitally do get UTI symptoms but that is because the sores are in the urethral tract and that cause the burning painful urination. that is why i think that it is not the herpes that causes a UTI it is the sores that form in your urethra that causes the symptoms of a UTI. Hope this helped, take care.

Thanks for the info. I have not had sores since my initial ob. Just this UTI and yeast thing. This UTI did test positive for the e-coli bacteria that usually causes it, so I did go on antibiotics. I'm trying to fix whatever's going on now, with lots of cranberry juice. I read an article that says 16 8-oz. glasses in one day can completely flush out the bacteria. Guess I'm going to be pouring my cranberry juice into my wine glass tonight instead of wine! Ha!

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
