No, not that I'm aware of... a kidney infection can be cause dform several things including diet, how often you urinate and injuries. It is not possible to catch a kidney infection from someone or pass one on to someone else. No. I've had at least 5 kidney infections. It hurts terribly but no, it's not contagious. There are a few different things that cause them: 1. Wiping from back to front 2. Not drinking enough fluids 3. Having bacteria get inside you (from things such as certain kinds of foreplay, or sex. If you are sexually active, be sure to urinate after intercourse. Always.)
