Hi, this is Dr. TavlanH. pylori has never been found to infect any other part of people besides the stomach, so the H. pylori you have would not be causing a UTI. However, if you have UTI symptoms, you may have a completely separate germ causing it. Many UTI germs are resistant to the antibiotics you are taking for the H. pylori, so just being on the antibiotics wouldn't prevent you from getting a UTI. Have you been experiencing urinary symptoms?
In fact there is emerging evidence of the role of h pylori in bladder and prostate disease
See this abstract.
You need a culture of the urine, and if nothing were found among normal bugs, you would then need to see a urologist.
