If your dh/partner is intact (or restored) - Page 2

post #21 of 28
I've never had a UTI or yeast infection in my life -- and yes, my DH happens to be intact. I don't pee right after DTD most occasions. (Really seems like TMI , but there ya go.)

I didn't expect so many replies! Awesome! So it sounds like foreskin isn't likely a factor, which I kind if thought, but like I said I'd heard (er, read) that someone thought it was for her situation and wondered about a broader population.

My ex was cut and I got UTIs like nobody's business. He gave me yeast infections. Geez, I thought that circumcision was supposed to prevent that? Apparently his penis didn't get the notice.

Purely anecdotal, but my BFF is prone to UTIs and she dated an intact guy while she was in Europe for school. They were very busy (*ahem*), and she never got a UTI with him.

I'm a male cut at birth in 1962. My last UTI (required hospitalization) was in 1995, six years before I started restoring. Neither my wife nor I have had one since.

Wondering how it's played out for others. My dh is circd and I woke up with a uti this morning (yes, I peed, lol) and it got me thinking.
nope, never.

My DH is intact and I have not have a UTI since I have been with him (4 years). I used to get UTIs all the time. The other partners I had were not intact. Hm. I have never heard of this. Interesting topic.

My partner is circed, I am prone to UTIs due to having a larger than normal bladder, sorry if tmi. Anyway, with my previous intact partners I have no memory of having a UTI .With my husband though I must pee after sex without fail or I get a UTI. TTC is a nightmare as I get UTI after UTI each month of trying.
