Has anyone heard of the cause of a UTI to having sex during menstruation? Because in the past 2 times i've gotten a UTI, i started feeling the symptoms a few days after my period. I'm also on birth control pills and have been on them since May...if that makes any difference. Monogamous relationship..don't know what other specifics i should say.
Oh and please no one turn this thread into an immature "Eww you had sex on your period??!?" because yes i did, and it was grand.
Yes, you can get a UTI if on your period, you can get a UTI simply from having sex, period or no period. But on your period is a little riskier just because it's not very clean in that area, and that automatically raises your risk. Grand as it is , you may want to refrain in order to keep from getting any more infections, as multiple infections contributes to other problems you don't want.
