    Can my boyfriend infect me if he has an infection in his prostate or bladder if we have intercourse?

    from what I've read if it is an infection of his prostate yes he can infect you. Bladder infection no becuase the sphinter closes the bladder off tight.

    Hi Matty,

     

    I hope the prostate and bladder infections have been resolved at this point.  I was wondering if you received more information from a medical doctor?  You should not worry about getting an infection from those conditions, but you can always wear a condom during intercourse if you are concerned.
