No, a bladder infection cannot be passed to another person. Bladder infections, more common in woman and girls, are usually caused by bacteria that migrates from the rectal area. Improper wiping, poor hygiene, “holding it” instead of urinating when nature calls, not drinking sufficient water, irritation from bubble baths or harsh detergents, all can help cause bladder infections. One of the more common causes appears to be prior sexual activity, so technically, this may involve someone else, but one person basically cannot biologically transfer a true bladder infection to another person.
