condoms and UTI's (urinary tract infection)
Posted September 08 2008 - 04:42 PM
I never got uti's before I started having sex but in the short time I've been sexully active I gotten 3 of them.
Then I started taking the pill and we have been going without condoms and just using "the pull out method" for our second method of birth control and since we wernt using condoms I havnt had any problems with tract infections.
I miss my birth control pill 2 days ago and so we decided to play it safe and use a condom. and we have used condoms twice since then and now I have a UTI AGAIN!!!
It has to be the condoms right?
I mean I'm careful with everything else.
I pee after sex and I drink lots of water during the day, so what else could it be?

I've never had problems with latex with anything else before, but just to be on the safe side I used the Microsheer Polyurethane condoms, and I still got a UTI.
Could it be the lubricant?...does anyone else have this problem or have any allargies to Palyurethane or condom lubricants?

do you pee INSTANTLY after sex? i try to pee at least twice within the hour after sex, one of those times being an instantaneous jump up from bed and run to the bathroom almost.
the other thing is that sometimes you can get uti's at the beginning, when you're not used to having sex, and then your body gets used to the antibiotics and keeps getting uti's.
taking some cranberry supplements on a regular basis for a while might help your bladder get back to its normal healthy state, because right now it sounds like it's kind of susceptible to getting bugs. :( sorry, i know how much they suck!

arg! yeah they really do suck. and I have no heath insurance too so it makes things even more difficult.
well thanks for your help anyway Nakedtreehugger....I'll try the cranberry thing too.

in my case. my ex's dick was probably rotten since he was sleeping around. in your case, it sounds like you may be allergic since you only get them with the condom
