Can one get UTI without having sex or being sexually active? If yes, then what could be the other reasons?

Can one get UTI without having sex or being sexually active? If yes, then what could be the other reasons?
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra and typically occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply in the bladder. Our urinary system is designed to keep out such microscopic invaders, but these defenses sometimes fail and bacteria may take hold and grow into a full-blown infection in the urinary tract. UTIs are fairly common in women and affect the bladder and urethra. CAUSES: 1. Infection of the bladder (cystitis) is usually caused by Escherichia coli (E. Coli), a type of bacteria commonly found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. However, sometimes other bacteria are also responsible. 2. Sexual intercourse may lead to cystitis, but you don't have to be sexually active to develop it. All women are at risk of cystitis because of their anatomy — specifically, the short distance from the urethra to the anus and the urethral opening to the bladder. 3. Infection of the urethra (urethritis). This type of UTI can occur when GI bacteria spread from the anus to the urethra. Also, because the female urethra is close to the vagina, sexually transmitted infections, such as herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia and mycoplasma, can cause urethritis. Other Risk factors in women could be: a. Certain types of birth control measures: Women who use diaphragms or spermicidal agents for birth control can be at a higher risk. B. Menopause: After menopause, a decline in circulating estrogen causes changes in the urinary tract that make you more vulnerable to infection. C. During pregnancy or childbirth. Other risk factors for UTIs in general include: Urinary tract abnormalities. Babies born with urinary tract abnormalities that don't allow urine to leave the body normally or cause urine to back up in the urethra have an increased risk of UTIs. Blockages in the urinary tract. Kidney stones or an enlarged prostate can trap urine in the bladder and increase the risk of UTIs. A suppressed immune system. Diabetes and other diseases that impair the immune system — the body's defense against germs — can increase the risk of UTIs. Catheter use. People who can't urinate on their own and use a tube (catheter) to urinate have an increased risk of UTIs. This may include people who are hospitalized, people with neurological problems that make it difficult to control their ability to urinate and people who are paralyzed. A recent urinary procedure. Urinary surgery or an examination of your urinary tract that involves medical instruments can both increase your risk of developing a UTI. Hope this helps.

Taking veltam f for enlarge prostate for five days. I had stopped it 5 days ago in response to its side effect of decreased sperm coming out during masturbation. So I want to ask how many days will it take to revert back to normal?

Why were you taking Veltam. The retrograde ejaculation is a side effect of Veltam and gets reverted back to normal once drug is stopped.

Kidney Stones - Strange Things That Can Cause It!

Kidney Stones - Strange Things That Can Cause It!

What are kidney stones?
The primary function of the kidney is to filter the blood and eliminate the waste products through urine. The waste deposition is sometimes in the form of excessive calcium, uric acid and other undesirable contents. It may cause the urine to get highly saturated. This is when stone-like formations take place inside the kidneys. Kidney stones are also termed renal lithiasis or calculi. There are different kinds of kidney stones, which are differentiated based on its varied constituents. Kidney stones cause excruciating pain and uneasiness. Frequent urination, extreme discomfort during urinating and presence of blood in the urine are some of the major signs of kidney stones. The symptoms are not evident if the stones are very small in size.

Causes of kidney stones:

  1. Incorrect calcium intake: High amounts of calcium can lead to high calcium depositions in the kidneys. It is important to keep the calcium intake moderate. Calcium supplements must be checked if you have already included dairy products in your diet.
  2. Abnormal rates of sodium in the body: Sodium, just like calcium, gets deposited in the kidneys.
  3. Excessive animal protein intake: Too much of animal protein intake can make the urine turn acidic, leading to uric acid depositions in the kidneys.
  4. Sugary, aerated drinks: These lead to undesirable waste deposition in the blood stream and eventually in the kidneys.
  5. Inadequate water intake: Not keeping the body well hydrated can cause the urine to turn acidic and increase waste deposition.

Potential risks and complications of kidney stones:

  1. Kidney stones may cause an infection in the kidneys which may eventually spread to the other internal organs and surrounding tissues.
  2. Kidney stones block the ureter and cause severe pain and discomfort that make sitting, standing or any other posture difficult.
  3. Kidney stones rarely cause kidney failures but the severe blockage and infection may cause such detrimental results in the human body.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I m faiz ahmed age 34. I have few 2mm stone in my left kidney and 3mm in vuj left. Please advice me.

Urologist,
I m faiz ahmed age 34. I have few 2mm stone in my left kidney and 3mm in vuj left. Please advice me.
Hi, all these are small stones which can be effectively treated with medicines. Vuj is the junction between ureter and bladder. This stone is treated with a group of drugs called alpha blockers and the kidney stones can be treated with drugs to reduce calcium and uric acid and increase potassium & citrate in urine. Please get prescription from your local urologist. Wish you a good health

Sir my wife creatinine is now 10.4 what is the right cure for while dylisis is not running.
Sandeep Ji... Cure is a very big term to use especially for the disease so progressed... But for your relief I would suggest you to try homoeopathic treatment... there are chances that gradually she may not require dialysis... but as an Initial target we should aim for symptomatic relief, decrease in frequency of Dialysis, and improvement of general health... And I am sure homoeopathic medicine can do that.. Even if you have done homoeopathic treatment and couldn't find the results... don't loose hope in it.. It does no harm so safe to take with the ongoing treatment.. There are some excellent remedies like Equisetum, Alfalfa, Zingiber which has shown excellent result in such conditions...
