If it has made you very poorly then it is possible. But rule out pregnancy first.

Sorry but they are no way linked so no a bladder infection can not cause a missed period or even a pregnancy test to show as negative

No, a bladder infection won't cause a late or missed period. But antibiotics, which are usually given for a bladder infection, can cause the pill not be as effective. If you are late or missed a period you should see a doctor for a pregnancy test. Or take a home test. Anytime you are on antibiotics, you need to use a back up method of birth control.

A bladder infection would probably not stop a period. If you ARE pregnant a bladder infection could cause you to miscarry. A bladder infection should be treated as it can backtrack to the kidneys so go to the doctor about the infection and tell him/her that you have missed your period.

I usually have my period on a 28 day cycle all the time. I am on an antibiotic for a bladder infection. I got my period 3 days early.

Affection of the sexual kind will cause a missed period if you are pregnant. An infection will seldom cause your menstrual cycle to be late.

A bladder infection won't cause trichomonas. Trich can cause symptoms similar to a bladder infection.

Can i DRINK SODA WHILE HAVING A BLADDER INFECTION A. WHO ever write that at the top is stupid . I had bladder infections when I was pregnant with both of my children so if you missed a period or if your period only lasted a shorter time than normal then you could be pregnant.

If the bladder infection was bad enough, it is possible that it could cause a miscarriage if not treated. Any infection that isn't treated can cause damage in the body.

If a bladder infection goes untreated, the bacteria can migrate up to the kidneys. This can cause a systemic infection and lots of pain. The risk of losing a kidney is too great not to treat the bladder infection. Frankly, a bladder infection is painful enough....why wouldn't you treat it?

No there is no connection between the bladder and the intestines.

Yes-- The bladder is a muscle that stretches to hold urine and contracts when the urine is released. Waiting long causes the bladder to stretch beyond its capacity which over a period of time can weaken the bladder muscle. When the bladder is weakened it may not empty completely and some urine is left in the bladder which may increase the risk of urinary tract infection or bladder infection.

Wiping from back to front after a bowel movement is one common cause of a bladder infection. Also, holding in your urine and unprotected sexual intercourse are other common causes of a bladder infection.

A bladder infection can't turn into trichomoniasis. Trich can cause many symptoms similar to UTI, though.

Hello, There are a variety of causes for a missed period. Causes of a missed period are as follows: * Pregnancy. * Taking the Plan B pill. * Missing Birth Control Pills. * Recently starting Birth Control Pills. * Irregular Periods. * PCOS. * Late Ovulation. * Stress. * Urinary Tract Infection. * Vaginal Infection. Not ovulating can cause irregular periods, also stress and starvation can cause you to miss a period.

Cystitis is the medical term meaning inflammation of the bladder. A bladder infection is one possible cause of cystitis.

Bacterial vaginosis will not cause a missed period. Take a pregnancy test.

Urinary tract infections like cystitis often cause pain with urination. Chlamydia can cause pain with urination as well. Some people who think they have a bladder infection (cystitis) actually have a chlamydia infection. Chlamydia can infect the urethra and cause painful urination. The infection doesn't normally ascend to the bladder.

Bladder infection should be looked into medically for identifying the cause/s and thereby recommending a line of treatment.
