Catching A Bladder Infection From Your Roommate?



Bladder infections, or UTIs Urinary tract infections, have never been exactly thought of as an STD. It is more common for women who are sexually active to have them, but then it’s really thought that it’s your own bacteria that cause these infections. Or more accurately your own bacteria, complicated by 'host' factors such as how healthy you are an things you eat. The most common bug is the E. coli which lives in our gut, and is called normal flora for the bowel. But a recent study of resistant E. coli has revealed an astonishing finding. It is more common for those that live in the same household to both have had resistant infections. This is one of the first pieces of evidence that the infections can be passed from person to person. So, yes, it is true that roommates could share bladder infections!
