  • Hell no! You're very vulnerable to infections right now, so I wouldn't take the chance until he's treated and it's cleared up.

  • I don't know if UTI's are contagious. I do know that you shouldn't have sex with a yeast infection because they get transferred from partner to partner.

    I just did a quick search and I don't think you can catch a UTI from him. Ask your doc to be sure, but I really don't think he would give you a UTI.

  • a urinary tract infection is just that, an infection caused by bacteria. You don't think when he cums in you that that bacteria won't be passed into you?!?!? You both just gotta deal with other ways of being "intimate" for the 7-10 days that he's being treated, he is on treatment right?

  • according to my dr you can pass a uti from partner to partner. i had a uti when i was about 12weeks pregnant we arnt sure who gave it to who but my husband had one to. although his symptoms appeared after mine so we think i gave it to him. hes needs to be treated befor you two have sex.
    you wana be very carefull in pregnancy
