There is no reason to be puzzled here.

It can be that your boyfriend too may be having an acute UTI.

My advice for you would be that both your partner and you should practice safe sex, i.e. use condom every time while having the intercourse. Both of you should maintain good personal hygiene. Drink plenty of water.

A single dose of azithromycin should help him. It is a prescription drug. Get it prescribed from a physician.

You both should be fine soon.

Hi kizitoh,
There are many bacteria (both good and bad) that make up our bodies normal flora. When a "bad" bacteria overcomes our bodies defenses, we end up in a disease state with an illness. Even a "good" bacteria can cause some harm if it has nothing to keep its numbers "in check" or it starts colonating where it doesn't belong.

From your description of the problem, it could be a simple case of yeast infection being passes between the two of you. However, it would be best if you both were to go in and be tested to find the exact cause of the problems. Cultures will need to be taken to correctly identify and treat your illnesses.

You may make an appointment with your family physician or you local health department for testing.

Be well,
Dr. Kimberly
