I think that usually UTIs in women are cause by vaginal bacteria but it is possible that your manipualtion of your wife sexually with your mouth  is somehow transmitting some virus or bacteria.  I'd check with the gynecologist and see what he (or she ) thinks in terms of target organisms - and check with what is being cultured in the urine (the organism).

first of all where does she get the inf? mouth or vagina? either case its obvious you are passing either a bacterial or fungal infection back and forth you may not have any symptoms alot of men dont exp symptoms of either a yeast inf or a bacterial infection . it is possible to get a bacterial infection in the mouth as well as a yeast infection . you need to BOTH be treated with antibiotics at the same time and avoid sexual contact until your both done with all the medication. you may have gingivitis which is being transmitted orally causing an inf. or it may be from her vagina opening she may have a bacterial infection and its getting pushed up into her urethra causing bladder infections. i suspect you both have a bacterial infection Reply
