The urine is normally sterile. An infection occurs when bacteria get into the urine and begin to grow. The infection usually starts at the opening of the urethra where the urine leaves the body and moves upward into the urinary tract. The culprit in at least 90% of uncomplicated infections is a type of bacteria called escherichia coli, better known as e. Coli. These bacteria normally live in the bowel (colon) and around the anus. These bacteria can move from the area around the anus to the opening of the urethra. The two most common causes of this are improper wiping and sexual intercourse. Usually, the act of emptying the bladder (urinating) flushes the bacteria out of the urethra. If there are too many bacteria, urinating may not stop their spread. The bacteria can travel up the urethra to the bladder, where they can grow and cause an infection lower urinary tract infection bladder (cystitis): the lining of the urethra and bladder becomes inflamed and irritated. Dysuria: pain or burning during urination frequency: more frequent urination (or waking up at night to urinate, sometimes referred to as nocturia); often with only a small amount of urine urinary urgency: the sensation of having to urinate urgently cloudy, bad-smelling, or bloody urine in an otherwise healthy person, a three-day course of antibiotics is usually enough. Some providers prefer a seven-day course of antibiotics. Occasionally, a single dose of an antibiotic is used. A health-care professional will determine which of these options is best.

Ertapenem is a very strong broad spectrum antibiotic vs augmentin. Ertapenem is used for resistant uti and augmentin cant replace it

Your problem is termed as blue balls. It is the slang term for a congested prostate or vasocongestion, the condition of temporary fluid congestion in the testicles and prostate region caused by prolonged sexual arousal in the human male. It is often accompanied by a cramp-like ache of prostatic congestion and pain/tenderness or edema of the testes. -----------the cause is the prolonged sexual stimulation of the erect penis (intentional or unintentional), that does not result in orgasm and ejaculation. In your case it is a erotic sexual denial. -----------i think obeid you have deprived from yourself masturbation habit purposely for the last one month. Or you must have refrained from ejaculation for a longer period to increase your duration of sex with your partner. If this is the case, massaging the testicles or using a vibrator on the testicles during the prolonged sexual activity may prevent the blood from pooling and actually prevent or decrease the severity of blue balls.------------------

The prostate gland is situated at the neck of the urinary bladder. The semen is composed of sperms that are made in testes and prostatic fluid that is made in the prostate gland. It is not unusual to occasionally get some mucus discharge (coming from prostate) at the end of urination. If it is frequent or if the discharge is profuse or yellowish, then infections in prostate gland and urinary tract need to be ruled out.

Dear lybrate user since the stone has formed inside body it is due to your susceptibility and tendency which needs a constitutional treatment for cure, surgery is a mechanical process to remove the stone it cannot cure the issue and may lead to future recurrences too.

These days my grandfather's urine is red in color, sometimes stone is occurred. Please tell a remedy?
Hello, Red colour urine may be commonly caused by 1.Blood. include urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate kidney or bladder stones. 2.Foods. Beets, blackberries can turn urine red or pink. Medications. Rifampin an antibiotic often used to treat tuberculosis, can turn urine reddish orange Tumors of the bladder and kidney, which can cause blood in the urine, are more common in older people. So my advice to you kindly go for Urine R/M and USG prostate and review with reports

Hello and welcome to lybrate. Your symptoms suggest, you could have a prostate gland enlargement or a urinary infection. The blood report shows a high level of your bad cholesterol, like triglycerides and ldl. Your good cholesterol should be above 45-55. Kidney function is normal. You need to get your blood sugar, urine routine and culture, psa, and a ultrasound scan of abdomen. Also, a urologist should examine you and the prostate gland and will advise further treatment after seeing the reports.

Call now and get homeopathic remedy. Headache will become very less frequent within a week. Eye strain, poor diet, bad posture, frequent eating junk food, less water intake are common causes for headache in young. If it persists inspite of lifestyle changes, get cat scan.

Iron rich foods are green leafy vegetables like spinach, mustard leaves, coriander, mint leaves, apple, aonla (amla)- pickle or candy or" murabba" cumin (jeera), sesame (til), dates, jaggery. Choose what she can eat. For stone no special precaution, though oxalates are more in leafy foods but no need to restict. Just drink lot of water.
