I have had UTI and comes back severly when I have sex, what could be the reason ?

Hi I have had UTI on and off now for 15 years. I use to treat it with anti biotics. But now I just drink cranberry juice. It comes back severly when I have sex. The other day I had a horrible backache with high fever chills and felt like throwing up. I took advil to ease the pain now my tailbone hurts and ofcourse still have the symptoms of UTI. In the evening my heart races really fast. Is this all related? Should I be worried?

welcome to HealthcareMagic

If you are a female then the recurrence of UTI can be a problem with you and you have to get treated for that.In case you have UTI after sex and you are a female then it may be a chronic cystitis(honeymoon cystitis is a condition where there is UTI following sex in females).If you still have the infection this time get treated with antibiotics as well as antifungal and even get antifungal treatment for your partner as well so that the chances of recurrence are reduced.As for the heart beating faster it can be due to anxiety or even in case of acidity if it is relieved after food.Please get examined by a doctor and get treated
