Urinary Infections/Sexually Transmitted Diseases - What’s the Difference?

Sometimes symptoms of urinary infections can be similar to symptoms associated with sexually transmitted diseases. A urinary infection happens when bacteria populates in the urethra, bladder, ureter or kidney. Sexually transmitted diseases are passed through secual intercourse and other forms of non-sexual contact. Urinary infections/sexually transmitted diseases share common symptoms, but here are a few common symptoms associated with sexually transmitted diseases that are not associated with urinary infections - nausea, fever, sore throat, genital rashes and sores, pain during intercourse.
