25 year old male. When I was 14 (still a virgin) I took my first puff of cigarette, a few days later, I had a very bad UTI infection. After 2 weeks of antibiotics it cleared up.
1 – Is there any links between smoking/nicotine and UTI?
About a month ago, I used vaporized cigarettes for a day, took roughly 50-100 puffs, straight away, had a constant urge to pee with no burning sensation. I went to the toilet about 15-20 times a day for 5 days. Doctor did a test on my urine and he found traces of blood and bacteria and prescribed a week’s worth of antibiotics (Augmentin). It took 10 days for everything to clear up. UTI was gone, a week later I used the vaporizer again. Again, the effect was immediate. I had the urge to pee straight away. This time however, it wasn’t as bad as the first time round. I went to the urologist, he did a urine culture and confirmed that I did not have UTI.
2 – Any links between vaping and UTI?
3 - About a day before trying out vaporized cigarettes, I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend during her menstrual, can this possibly cause UTI?
4 – Does urine culture tests for STDs such as Chlamedyia and Gonnorhea? I am afraid I might have these STDs as UTI is a symptom. However I do not have any discharge from my penis.
Around the same time that I contracted the second UTI from vaping, I also engaged in a dangerous sexual activity with a sex worker. She gave me unprotected oral sex and we had protected penetrative sex.
5 – Could this possibly cause UTI?
Around the same time I contracted my second UTI, I also noticed white spots on my arms. I went to see a doctor and he said that I have Tinea Versicolour.
6 – Could I possibly have HIV from this?
7 – Based on the entire episode, what are the chances of me getting HIV? Me and my gf tested negative for HIV about 2 years ago so I do not think I will contract anything from her. Does, my UTI and Tinea Versicolor have a correalation to HIV?
