Jessica Simpson hospitalized with kidney infection

jessicauti.jpg
Jessica Simpson probably hasn’t mastered the “always pee after sex” rule for women. She is currently hospitalized with a minor kidney infection.

Jessica Simpson is at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles due to a small kidney infection, In Touch can exclusively reveal. “She checked in on Friday morning because she was feeling achy and had a fever,” a friend of the family confirmed. Jessica was kept over the weekend for observations and is expected to be released Tuesday morning. “She is doing fine, but she is ready to get out of there,” added the friend. And although Jessica’s boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys QB, Tony Romo wanted to be by her side, he had prior commitments in Dallas. Get well soon , Jess!

[From In Touch]

I was plagued with urinary tract infections throughout my 20s so I have some sympathy for her. For self-treatment I used to go to the health food store and buy a couple of large jugs of unsweetened cranberry juice and try to drink them within a few hours. It was acidic and nasty, but would usually help. There’s also something called D-Mannose which is supposed to be a safe and effective natural treatment for urinary tract infections and should be available at health food stores.

I was going to comment that Jessica Simpson’s condition makes it clear that her relationship with Tony Romo is on hot terms and felt kind of guilty about it, but then I did five minutes of research and found that’s probably the case, medically-speaking:

In general, however, it is the physical act of intercourse itself that produces conditions that increase susceptibility to the UTI bacteria, with some factors increasing the risk:

  • Women having sex for the first time or who have intense and frequent sex after a period of abstinence are at risk for a condition called “honeymoon cystitis.”
  • A sudden increase in the frequency of sexual intercourse poses a significant risk for UTI, particularly if a diaphragm is used.
  • Sexual position (such as the woman on top) can contribute to the risk.
  • [From University of Maryland Medical Center]

    So all that rabid sex that marks the beginning of a relationship can also come at a cost for women.

    Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo are shown at the Waverly Inn on 3/4/08, thanks to Splash News.

      On the other hand, one can have kidney infections with no sex at all, so who knows? Either way, it’s hardly something I’d wish on someone, no matter how annoying! Hopefully she’ll recover soon.

      Tony Romo is so ugly, I would not look at him twice let alone have rapid sex with him. Jessica seems to really like those fugly men.

      She so has a type. College frat boy.

      @Anonymous: Thank goodness we all like different types of men. Imagine if we all liked the same type. That’s what makes the world go ’round. :)

      there´s be no men left for me! *hangs head*

      I used to get chronic UTI’s and it was like my damn doctor didn’t believe me that I followed all the “women-rules” post-sex. She looked at me like I was a slutty moron, haha.

      But it turned out I wasn’t drinking enough water. I won’t get into all the lovely details of the effects that can have on your urine. I’ll spare you today, lucky duck.

      You’re confusing a kidney infection with a UTI.

    9. anni says:

      erm no. there are different kind of UTIs, the one concerning the kidney is called pyelonephritis. itßs okay to say UTI, who wants to type out pyelonephritis

    10. Rianna says:

      i thought kidney infections and UTI’s were different.
      My best friend got a UTI when she was in 2nd grade, not from sex haha, but from not wiping correctly.
      I was plagued with UTI’s all through my pregnancy. I had them constantly. Cranberry juice certainly did not help me one bit.
      I fortunately have never had a UTI after sex but maybe that’s cause I pee… It must work.
      I thought Kidney Infections were from lack of water, incorrect diet and you can also get them from long term medication use. My Pop got a Kidney infection from the drugs he was on for his lung infection a while back.

    11. Bellatrix says:

      I was never taught about the “women’s post sex rules”… I thought that women just instinctively went peeing after sex. How could you not?

      That matter put aside, if she’s hospitalized, then it isn’t the normal minor infection.
      I do wish her well since I’ve had serious kidney problems before and they do kind of ruin your life until they are solved.
      There’s a limit to my mocking abilities… And it includes the two keywords : kidney & hospital.

      “Tony Romo is so ugly, I would not look at him twice let alone have rapid sex with him.”

      LOL Anonymous. I would think that you want to have rapid sex with him if you think he is so ugly.

      ANYWAY! Tony get your mind back on football dang it!

      Please they ALL get hospitalized for exhaustion…poor things

    14. ER says:

      Hospitals only keep people for minimal amounts of time even after undergoing serious surgery (gall bladder removal, mastectomy, etc.). Why do celebs always get a lengthy, lavish stay?!

    15. Kate says:

      Because they don’t have to worry about limits imposed by their insurance companies, ER.
