baby oil and oral

Dr. David :

most likely from the baby oil.

Dr. David :

Customer:

yes

Dr. David :

this can cause clogged skin pores and could have caused your UTI

Dr. David :

I would not use baby oil.

Customer:

ok

Dr. David :

it is better to use a water based lubricant

Customer:

i wont anymore

Dr. David :

that washes off better.

Dr. David :

good idea.

Dr. David :

good luck

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.

Customer:

can i pass it on to my partner

Dr. David :

no, you can't pass common urinary tract infections to your partner.

Dr. David :

once it is treated with cipro you are fine.

Customer:

if i have it i can cant i

Dr. David :

I can't what?

Customer:

if i have sex with uti i can pass it on

Dr. David :

no, you can't pass on UTI with sex.

Dr. David :

this is an infection in the bladder and urine.

Customer:

because she has an infection

Dr. David :

it is much more common for woman to have bladder infections.

Dr. David :

because their urethra is much shorter to their bladder.

Dr. David :

so for women, it is very common for them to get UTI after sexual intercourse

Dr. David :

because there is bacteria in their vaginal area and during sex there is a lot of trauma and pushing up against the urethral opening where she goes to pee.

Dr. David :

and so it is very easy for bacteria to get up into the bladder.

Dr. David :

this is not because you had a UTI before.

Dr. David :

she should try to pee and urinate after sex to try to wash out any bacteria which could have gotten into the urethra.

Dr. David :

does this make sense?

Customer:

yes but i think i give her because we have it at the same time

Dr. David :

most likely this is not the case.

Dr. David :

did she get treated for her UTI?

Customer:

yes

Dr. David :

did you use baby oil for lubricant during sex with her?

Customer:

its clear now

Customer:

yes i rube my penis on her but did not insert

Dr. David :

I don't think you gave her a UTI.

Customer:

maybe it could be something else

Customer:

i worry

Customer:

i had blood test come all clear
