My 70 year old male friend who is diabetic has had a few UTIs which they are now treating a second time with Cipro. He was told it is enterococcus faecalis. He has had the same partner for 3 years. He is asking: Is this transmittable through intercourse or oral sex? What is best antibiotic for this bacteria? Thank you.
