Back in high school biology we all learned that there are many different organ systems in the body--the circulatory system, the respiratory system, the reproductive system, the urinary system and so forth. I think of them as having separate organs and operating differently. So it never made sense to me that something that had to do with the reproductive system (sex) would affect the urinary system (urinary tract infections). But Oh! How wrong I was.
Just about every young woman who begins her adult sexual life, no matter what her age, has dealt with the dreaded urinary tract infection ( watch a UTI video ), often as a result of sexual activity.

Faslodex (chemical name: fulvestrant)
