I am happy to help you today.


It sounds like you might be passing a Std back and forth instead.


Male UTI are caused by:




~kidyney stones



~prostate infection.


The fact that you are getting it too points to an std.


I suggest you see your doctor to be checked. Be sure to tell them what medication you are taking.


Best wishes,

I didnt get a recent UTI i use to get a lot of UTI's and my boyfriend never did until recently. He just told me that he thinks he is getting it again because his urine smells and his urine is cloudy. Is this still an std?
Expert:  Macy RN replied 8 years ago.

It can be UTI and that can be told with a simple urine test and when they culture it it will say if it is chlaymidia or other std.


He could just simply have an Uti caused by infection.


or from

~kidyney stones



~prostate infection.

So men as young as 23 can get uti's and pass it to their partner like he can give it to me if we have sex?
Expert:  Macy RN replied 8 years ago.

Anyone at any age can get a urinary tract infection.


However it is only contagious if it was caused by a std.
