Hi, I have been getting prostate infections as well as UTI but never experienced passing it on to my wife. I have been getting these infections since before I got married in 1989.
I assume that it could be possible though. If it is possible to pass other things on, it should be possible that an uncontroled infection could be passed on as well.
For myself however, each time that I had a prostate infection or a UTI, I have never been interested in sexual contact during that time. Most of the times to clear up an infection, I was put on Cipro 500mg for about a month at a time. It could be that one would still have an infection but has started to feel well enough to no longer feel the effects of the infection.
