If you have been in contact with someone who has 'pink eye' then its likely that you have that too. The UTI has nothing to do with that. Conjuctivitis is probably the cause of the pink eye. You should see a opthalmologist and get antibiotics drops for the eye.

Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I a sorry to hear about what you have been experiencing. Hope the UTI symptoms are getting better. In addition to drugs, please drink much water,

From the information you have provided, the pink eyes are more of allergic conjunctivitis than chlamydia infection. Chlamydia is not a common cause of UTI. Also, I don't find very concerning risky sexual behaviour that may put you at risk or chlamydia infection now. Try to put on glasses both for you comfort and to reduce the spread of this condition which is most likely caused by a highly contagious virus.
However, please always consider using a protection during intercourse. It is important to control STDs and Pregnancy.

I hope you find this useful and informative. If you have more questions, please ask us and we shall gladly provide answers. I wish you good health.

it can be either co-incidence or even chlamydia, unless direct observation is done, we can not comment on it. it is possible that your personal hygiene is not good and it spread to your room mate. also, it is just part of viral conjunctivitis epidemic, and separately you have UTI. examination and urine microscopy and culture would help to solve the issue. a course of doxycycline would help to treat.

wish you good health
