Bladder Infection Causes: Your Doc? Your Sex Partner?
The Infectious Disease Society ofAmerica states that women can be harmed by such screening as it leads to over use of antibiotics and more bladder infections. There are other reasons for UTI's to become chronic. Sex has always been one of the common causes of UTI, if your symptoms of the infection are more than 48 hours after sex, it probably wasn't the sex. It might be the partner you have picked, new sex is even more likely to be a cause of infection than having sex with that same guy (or gal). Spermicidal use is another modern cause of chronic urinary tract infections. And then here's an odd modern medicine cause of chronic infections: living long. More women living past the age of menopause, and getting bladder infections because they have low estrogen. If none of these are causing your chronic infections then other causes can be explored: holding your urine too long, dietary causes, pelvic anatomy causes. If you have bladder infections too frequently, see your gyno, it's probably time to gab about it.
