If the urinary tract infection is caused by common bacteria, it will not be transmitted (E. coli is the most common). If it is gonococcal, mycoplasma or chlamydia infection, it will be transmitted through sexual life.
how do you get e coli in your urine
Escherichia coli (E. coli) Gram-negative Brevibacterium, 0.5 *1-3 micron in size. Peripheral flagellum, motile, sporeless. It can ferment a variety of carbohydrates to produce acid and gas. It is the normal inhabitant bacteria in human and animal intestines. After birth, infants enter the intestinal tract with lactation and accompany people for life, accounting for almost one third of the dry weight of feces.
The antigenic components of E. coli are complex and can be divided into bacterial antigen (O), flagellum antigen (H) and surface antigen (K), which have the ability of anti-body phagocytosis and anti-complement. According to the different antigens, E. coli can be divided into more than 150 types, of which 16 serotypes are pathogenic E. coli, which often causes epidemic infantile diarrhea and adult pleurisy.
Escherichia coli is the most important and abundant bacteria in the intestine of human beings and many animals. It has flagella all over its body and can move without spores. They mainly live in the large intestine.
Escherichia coli is a kind of bacteria closely related to our daily life. Its scientific name is "Escherichia coli", and it belongs to one of the large categories of intestinal bacteria. Within hours of a baby's birth, E. coli settles in the intestine through swallowing. Normally, most Escherichia coli are very safe. They will not only bring any harm to our health, but also resist the attack of pathogenic bacteria competitively. They can also help to synthesize vitamin K2, which is a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with the human body. Only under special circumstances such as low immunity and long-term lack of stimulation of intestinal tract can these good people make waves and migrate to places outside intestinal tract, such as gallbladder, urethra, bladder and appendix, causing infection in corresponding parts or disseminated infection in the whole body. Therefore, most Escherichia coli are usually considered opportunistic pathogens.

Is there anything I can do that would help get rid of this or is there nothing to do anymore? I have a uti ecoli.
How does ecoli get into the bladder
E. coli naturally resides in the intestines of all humans, usually doing no harm. But some E. coli can cause illness. With UTIs, the E. coli bacteria from the intestines is present in fecal matter. And trace amounts of fecal matter make their way into the urinary tract (which is made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra) through the urethra opening and begin to multiply. Because women have short urethras, they are more prone to the infection due to sexual contact, improper wiping, and holding urine.
I think E. Coli is very common in our intestines, there're many E. Coli in normal human stool.
Can this be passed on to someone else ? How do you care for the preson with this sickness ? Does it ever go away ?
Hello, E. coli is generally not transmitted to other people unless you eat the feces of people who are flooding with E. coli. Therefore, if you pay attention to hygiene, you will not be infected by the patient. Everyone has a certain amount of E. coli in the intestines that helps people digest food. When the intestinal flora is dysfunctional, it will threaten our health. So don't take oral antibiotics, don't eat food.
? what does "don't take oral antibiotics, don't eat food" mean?
Don't share food with E. coli patients?
My E. coli is in my intestines.  The symptoms are less than in the beginning but I still have  cramping and need to go to the bathroom ASAP.  I may have 3-4 episodes in a short span of time and then symptom free for a long time during a 24 hr. period.  How long will this continue?  It's been several weeks since onset.
You mean you have diarrhea or urinary frequency? Have you done stool or urine tests? Do you have urinary or intestinal tract infection? For both infections, antibiotics may be tried under your doctor's guidance.
How long can you have ecoli. Uti
And live? Or in how much time dose it start to get worse and you die from this?
UTI isn't life-threatening, usually people feel pain and burning, and they seek treatment. Antibiotics will kill the e.coli and you'll be fine. Unless, the infection spreads to the kidney and cause damage to the kidney, that'll be a big problem.
how do you know you have E.coli infection.   In ordinary people, without cancer, anti-immune drug or chemo,  it will get better after treatment with anti-biotics. If you are in complex condition ,like  cancer, anti-immune drug or chemo, it lasts longer. You should be treated with stronger antibiotics. if no blood infection(septicemia),which always presents as shiver and fever, it's not life-treatening. Don't worry , you will get better after using antibiotics.
Is there anything I can do that would help get rid of this or is there nothing to do anymore? I have a uti ecoli.
Get treatment, antibiotics. If you don't want to go, and you don't have any symptom, it's okay just leaving it as it is. Or you may drink cranberry juice, or take probiotics that might work for UT health, I think there are quite a few choices in vitamin stores.
No it isn’t ok to leave and UTI alone, I left mine alone for 8 months now it’s a mess with terrible pain even after taking antibiotics, if you think you have a UTI get to the doctor..
i have the worst uti and have tried everything to get rid of it and the dr said I have ecoli in the culture he ran on me now iam itching everywhere and just need this taken care of can someone help me do I need a urine dr or skin dr
You have body itching after your dr put you on a new drug? If so, it strongly suggests that the itchiness is caused by the drug as a side effect. You should talk to the urine dr to discuss whether it is possible to switch to another drug.
How long is the ecoi l last after antibiotics are being taken
It depends on the location and severity of the infection.
Usually in 3 days you'd feel much improved, although the treatment lasts for more days.
I HAVE A "COLINAZION" OF E-COLI IN MY BLADDER~~HAD 6 CHLOR MED WASHES ...DID NOT HELP AT ALL , BOTOX FOR BETTER RETENTION~DID NOT WORK ~~CAN ONLY TAKE CERTAIN ANTIBIOTICS ( C- DIFF) HELP ~~IT'S RUINING MY LIFE !
Has your doctor arranged bacterial culture and sensitivity analysis? That's to find the optimal antibiotics to the E-coli you've infected.
my urine is dark the DR. said I have blood in my urine and  made an appointment for CT scan . What does that mean? Linda
