Having sex after a decade’s break lands woman in ED: case

Post-sex cystitis climaxes in a rare infection, US doctors report

A postmenopausal woman’s reintroduction to sex after a decade culminated in a hospital stay after she developed cystitis that in turn seeded vertebral osteomyelitis, US doctors report.

The 61-year old woman presented to the ED with a two-week history of worsening sacral pain radiating to her lumbar spine and diffuse abdominal pain, write doctors from the Western Michigan University.
