Health Zone: Abnormal sexual activities increase risk of kidney infection – Physician

An-Abuja based physician, Dr Okezie Emenike, on Tuesday said abnormal sexual activities that irritate the urethra increase the risks of kidney infection.
Emenike said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

He explained that “infection that enters through the opening of the urethra can infect the bladder, which can later lead to infection of the kidneys.

“Having sex that irritates the urethra can easily allow bacteria to enter the bladder and cause the development of kidney infection.

“Anal sex, pregnancy, kidney stones, as well as prolonged use of urinary catheter are also causative factors to kidney infection.’’

The physician said bacterium such as E.coli which lived in the bowel of humans was mostly responsible for the development of the infection.

According to him, Kidney infection occurs when bacteria enters the urinary tract through the tube that carries urine from the body (urethra) and begin to multiply.

The medic said bacteria from an infection elsewhere in the body could spread through the blood stream to the kidneys and lead to infection of the kidneys.

He added that women were most at risk of developing kidney infection, noting that the urethra of women was closer to the anus, which made it easier for bacteria to enter the urethra…
