Symptoms and Causes
Urinary tract infections can occur as a result of bacterial infections. These infection-causing bacteria are already present in the small and large intestines but don’t cause any issues. However, if the bacteria goes into the urine-carrying tube (urethra), it can cause a problem as it causes a bladder infection. Here are some of the symptoms you might experience while having a UTI:
- Frequent urination
- Blood in urine
- Cramps in the lower abdomen
- Burning while peeing
- Continuous need to pee
Bacteria causing bladder infection is usually Escherichia coli. The causes of transmitting bacteria into the bladder are:
- Wiping back to front after intercourse
- Using contraceptive
- Inserting tampon
- During pregnancy
- Post-menopause low estrogen level
- Prostate infection
FAQs About Bladder Infection

How long to wait for sex after bladder infection treatment?
It is better to wait until the infection is completely gone to avoid worsening the symptoms and the chances of spreading. After two weeks of clearing symptoms and completing the antibiotic course, you can return to normal activities. Sometimes you may get other infections from your partner, even if he is healthy. It happens because your immunity is low during disease, and there are more chances of opportunistic pathogen infections. So don’t take risks while being infected.
If I have sex when I have a bladder infection, does my partner need treatment too?
As long as you don’t have a sexually transmitted infection, you don’t need treatment. However, still, it is best to avoid sex during infection as it can give a chance for opportunistic bacteria to grow and cause further infection along with pain and irritation.
What is a long-term treatment for repetitive bladder infection?

Why does my bladder hurt after yeast infection suppository treatment?
A yeast infection suppository is an antifungal treatment for yeast infections in the vagina. Its side effects include vaginal burning, abdominal pain, and a burning sensation in the vagina. It can only hurt the bladder if the yeast infection has progressed from the vagina to the urethra and bladder.
How long will a bladder infection last without treatment?
A bladder infection does not resolve independently and requires antibiotics for treatment. The persistence depends upon the severity and duration of the infection in the body. It also depends upon your immunity as the lower the immunity will be, the longer the duration of infection and severity of the symptoms will be.
