Urinary Tract Infections After Physical Intimacy
And yet, despite the growing interest in women’s intimate health, women’s discussions are still hidden under the covers. Of course, libido, menopause, and UTI (Urinary Track Infections) symptoms are not a common conversation at the dinner table, especially when both sexes are present. One of the tabooest topics is the urinal tract infection after physical intimacy. Doctors have known the condition that is named “honeymoon cystitis” for a long time.
Symptoms are caused by active physical intimacy. They are the same as for UTIs caused by something other than sleeping with a husband or boyfriend. These symptoms include a painful burning sensation when urinating, as well as a frequent urge to use the toilet. Other symptoms may include cloudy urine, bloody urine, urine with a strong odor, and pelvic pain.
Honeymoon cystitis can occur with a new partner or after a long period of inactivity. During physical intimacy, E. coli bacteria, which usually live on the skin around the anus, can be passed into the urethra.
After contact, bacteria can quickly enter the urinary system and cause infection. Because the female urethra is short (about 2 ½ inches), women are more susceptible to these infections than men. Women contract UTIs up to 30 times more often than men. By the way, do not envy men. Even though their urethra is much longer, there is a prostate gland between the opening and the urinal bladder. The prostate catches germs that often leads to prostatitis.
Several factors can increase the chances of postcoital infection.
- Chronic urinary tract infections
- Certain types of contraception, such as diaphragms or spermicides
- Chronic yeast infections after taking antibiotics
- Low immunity due to deficiencies in essential nutrients
- Weak urine flow to remove bacteria from the bladder and more
Antibiotics are the usual treatment for UTIs. Some women with recurrent bladder infections take many courses of antibiotics a year. Others may be given a prescription for a small daily dose of antibiotics taken over several months to “prevent” future infections. But antibiotics aren’t just killing E. coli bacteria in the urethra, bladder, and kidneys. They also destroy beneficial gut bacteria, which serve as a vital, neglected internal organ that performs many tasks and functions. Good gut bacteria can:
- Promote digestion
- Support immunity
- Regulate mood along the gut-brain axis
- Normalize the hormonal balance of women
- Control the overgrowth of opportunistic infections such as Candida, coli, C. diff, parasites, etc.
- Support to remove toxins, heavy metals, excess cholesterol, and more
The overuse of antibiotics destroys these functions. Therefore, it is not surprising that women with recurrent urinary tract infections suffer from constipation, gas, bloating, diarrhea, moodiness, depression, other chronic infections, skin rashes, and yeast infections.
At the Biotherapy Clinic, we have been using a unique healing program to help women with recurrent UTI for many years. This healing program is aimed not only at suppressing the infection but also at repairing and restoring the local immunity of the urinary tract to avoid future flare-ups and to minimize the damage from overuse of antibiotics.
It should be said here that the overuse of antibiotics leads to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant forms of bacteria and yeast. This means that in the future when we desperately need antibiotics to save our lives, they will be useless.
A woman’s genitourinary tract has been designed to be healthy and fight infection. In healthy women, even when bacteria E. coli occur inside the urinal bladder, they are flushed out with urine. To reside and make colonies, harmful bacteria have adhesive actions to attach to the bladder’s walls. If they can do this, bacteria make colonies covered by biofilm; therefore, the immune system cannot destroy them. Biotherapy healing program focuses on the root of the problem using an alkaline diet, acupuncture, drinking healing mineral water, nutritional supplements, and herbs.
In the active lovemaking women, the use of spermicide or antibiotics escalates the risk of UTI. It also increases the incidence of infections due to drug-resistant microbes and yeast. In many situations, urinal tract infection and yeast infections go together. It happens because the healthy, protecting vaginal flora is irradicated by antibiotics. Candida-yeast overgrowth suppresses whole-body immunity, also diminishes local resistance to harmful bacteria. By using the Biotherapy Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program, we can restore proper immunity, return the natural mechanism to fight with infection. We can help.
