What is Sepsis and How Did a Porn Star Die From it?

Despite what some may believe porn performers are not magically imbued with all knowledge of their body, STD, and STIs. It just didn’t work like that. While it’s true most people in the adult industry are more open about topics regarding sexuality and their bodies, it doesn’t, however, mean we automatically know everything.

Sepsis is considered a rather common yet life-threatening complication of an infection. Simply put it’s when bacteria from an infection gets in your bloodstream. This can trigger a cascade of damage in your body as the bacteria works its way through your bloodstream – this includes organ failure.

In the case of Olivia Nova it the organ that failed was her kidney.

Olivia Nova had a UTI or Urinary Tract Infection. UTI’s are common and that most women get one at least some time int heir life and most women will have repeat infections, sometimes for years on end.

These are some of the symptoms of a UTI:

  • A burning feeling when you urinate
  • A frequent or intense urge to urinate, even though little comes out when you do
  • Pain or pressure in your back or lower abdomen
  • Cloudy, dark, bloody, or strange-smelling urine
  • Feeling tired or shaky
  • Fever or chills — a sign the infection may have reached your kidneys

Simply put if your urine is cloudy and smells strange, go to the doctor right away. If you have a weird ache in your side, tell your doctor. If it burns when you pee, tell your doctor. These are all very important things that could cost you your life. It’s what killed Olivia Nova.

Urinary Tract infections are not uncommon. If you do get one, don’t let it kill you. Drink lots of water and go see your doctor immediately!

    Not to change the subject but be careful of the flu this year. Went to the hospital today for Bronchitis and the hospitals are full of people with a flu not covered in this years flu shots. They were putting people in the hallways because all the beds in the hospital were full.
