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!

      OK sir, let me explain so even you can understand. When I speak of inaccessibility, I'm referring to the immune system; i.e. In general, the immune system does not enter cells and kill viruses. Further, because the herpes virus resides in the neuronal cells, the immune system wont kill those cells (for obvious reasons) to clear the virus. The end result is that the virus is inaccessible by the immune system and the virus remains for life. My statement is/was accurate.

      Well guys, i had the talk... and it went even worse than I thought. He refused to talk to me in person, so I had to do it through text. He said “well I’ve never had symptoms, so I’m not getting tested. You work in the medical field, you probably paid someone to fabricate those test results to try to trap me into a relationship. I will have no further contact with you” ... and then he blocked me from everything. And THEN less than 24 hours later, messaged my old room mate asking her to come over for a beer and movie night.  HES DISGUSTING!! I was considering taking legal action against him, because with his total lack of sympathy, and the fact that he tried to sleep with my friend less than 24 hours after I told him, I think he knew he had it and just didn’t care... so I messaged his ex on Facebook to see if She knew he had it. She wasn’t sure but she is definitely going to get tested now... she told me he is an extreme narcissist and emotionally manipulates people. ... after doing my research, it all makes sense.    So since hes not sorry, I decided to do some type of revenge. I reported him for fishing without a license, and having a trailer with no tags. I’m not sure if he got cited or not, but the cops definitely investigated... because about an hour after my complaint I got 4 consecutive calls from a blocked number less than a minute apart.... he was angry and trying to reach me.    Im just devastated that he did this to me and doesn’t even care. He lead me to believe he cared about me

      Well you’re nearly there. As you say you can’t patent a natural substance such as vitamin C. Anyone can use it and develop their own product.  Nothing stopping this with your mushroom then!

      @WilsoInAus Another display of ignorance, here’s an example, vitamin c is found in nature, you cannot patent vitamin c, but you can make your own mixture of compounds where vitamin c is the pertinent substance and patent that mixture,  regardles though, the main ingredient is an extracted compound found in nature, or perhaps they synthesized a very close mimicking compound so yes you can patent naturally occurring compounds if you know how to make it original like the example I gave above
