Hi doctor,

I am 40 years old and have suffered from bouts of prostatitis a few times. I have not had an intimate life for many years. Now, I am having an intimate life with one person, who is clean as well as I am. After vigorous sex, I am having frequent urination, especially at night. I was wondering if vigorous sex can irritate me to bring this on. There is no blood in urine. I had a dipstick urinalysis a month ago and was cultured. All came back negative. But, I have low back pain. Also, my SG was 1.008. Is that low? Ay girlfriend was told that she has a UTI and is susceptible to UTI during sex. Is it something that can also affect me? Because, I am peeing a lot.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We are here to help you.

  • Yes, your symptoms are consistent with either urinary tract infection (UTI) or prostatic enlargement. In fact, you might have benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) contributing to UTI.
  • Now the treatment part would consist of the following investigations:
  1. Urine routine and microscopy.
  2. Urine culture and sensitivity.
  3. Ultrasound abdomen.
  • Once the reports are available, we would discuss the further course of action. I would recommend a urine culture of your partner too, so that both get infection free.

Thank you so much doctor,

Yes, just tonight her urine was dipped and confirmed that she has a UTI. She was placed on antibiotics as I am assuming I am looking at the same again. She is 56 years old and I am 40.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Ideally, antibiotics should be started once the urine culture has been given for the investigations. I would like to know which antibiotics have been started.
  • For you my recommendation would be to give your urine sample for test followed by the course of the same antibiotic till the culture report is available.
