  1. #1

    Default Uti from diaper?

    hi everyone, I'm new to diaper wearing and I'll like to know from the ladies if anyone has gotten a uti from using a diaper.

    Why you just want to ask girls?

    And I never got a UTI from diaper wearing,but....
    I have had diaper rash many times,and a few times a yeast infection from diaper wearing,etc.

    women are more prone to UTI's due to their anatomy, i'm not a girl but yes, if that area isn't properly cleaned the potential for a UTI is there.

    So far I haven't gotten a UTI but I don't wear 24/7.

    I wear maybe 2-3 per week

    I'm not female, but I will try my best to contribute and at least say that I also feel there is kind of a fear factor I get from wetting that maybe I'll get some sort of infection or even worse I've heard of a case where an AB/DL got Hodgkin's Lymphoma, though I don't know if being an AB/DL was purely a coincidence or not. And stuff like that makes me feel like I need to shower after I wet or else something will be physically wrong with me once I wear not that I'm staying in a diaper all hours of the day after wetting or anything.

    I severely doubt you could get Hodgkin's Lymphoma from diapers considering it has to do with cancer in your lymphatic system. Being AB/DL had to have been a coincidence or else it would be far more common among the IC community. So I wouldn't be too worried.

    When it comes back to infections however, it's good to keep as clean as possible. Urine that has mixed with oxygen for a while is an absolute haven of a bacterial breeding ground.

    Some years ago, back when my wife was more open to me wearing on occasion, I actually go her to try a cloth backed depends after much coercing and begging. She even agreed to wet it and did sleep in it. That was the one and only time she went as far as to sleep the night padded and wet. Of course, to my bad luck, she did develope a mild uti. She blamed the diaper and that pretty much ended her wearing and wetting in one. Was it coincidence, who knows. But she has never gotten one again, so the evidence for us is, it could lead to one. By the way, she has worn a diaper on occasion, when it is that time of the month for her and never had an issue with any uti. So for her, it could be the sensitivity to the urine remaining in close proximity. Would this be the case with a premium brand, I will likely never know as she would not indulge now and take the chance.

    Yes, you can certainly get a UTI from a diaper. I think it depends on your immune system more than anything else. As others have said, urine exposed to air is a bacterial breeding ground. There seems to be a wider variance in people's immunological systems than is often recognized.

    It has never happened to me, but my immune system would be well characterized as "aggressive." Take my experience with a grain of salt. It causes more problems than it solves, so far as I can tell, but the upshot is that I almost never get sick with anything. I've only had the flu once, ever. That probably helps with diaper wearing and bacteria. The downside is that I need to carry EpiPens with me everywhere, because my immune system might well get carried away and go nuts over, for example, parsnips. My immunologist calls me one of his "interesting" clients. o.O

    Having said that, UTI's do not seem to be a major issue here on ADISC. I have not seen many threads about it.

    I'd imagine it's that women run a higher risk of UTI like tails said. I've had days were I drink a few glasses of water after work when I already feel an urge and hold it as long as I can to enjoy the relief afterwards. I've sat in it overnight and one time messed and stayed in it overnight without anything negative happening afterwards. I think as long as you don't wear the same diaper for too long and you regularly clean you should be fine.

    As a male, the only time I got a UTI from a diaper was when it was mixed with a catheter (quite a stupid thing to do!)

    A female friend that used to wear did get a slight infection from diapers while just wearing normally when wearing a thick one during the summer.

    It's important to drink plenty, keep clean, and change often especially if you have any reason to believe you are more prone to infection
