  • It shouldn't. You are probably getting the yeast infections from the pregnancy (that's the only time I get them), as far as the kidney infections..make sure you empty ur bladder before and after sex.

  • my SO does.. and i did till my LO... yeast infections I agree could be from pregnancy along with bladder infections.. both suck.. but make sure he is really cleaning in and around the piercing! this may be TMI but my honey takes his out washes it with peroxide and sticks it back in after sex to make sure there aren't any ...remnants.... =) Hope this helps!

  • Yeast infections are common with pregnancy because of the increased discharge. The best advice I heard that worked was not wearing underwear all the time so that you are "breathing." As for the kidney infections, drink more water and go to the bathroom more often (crazy I know).

  • I would say it could cause the kidney infections because it can hold the bacteria and either take it out or make sure you keep it really clean. Just remember having the infection can make you go into preterm labor.

  • I dated a guy in 2007 with a jacobs ladder. For some reason his piercings scraped me and I didn't know it for quite awhile. Ended up with PID.
    It could cause infections since bacteria can still lurk in the healed hole and not affect him. I'd start making sure he at least washes right before sex thoroughly and see if that helps. Bring it up to the doc too. Embarrassing at times I know.
