12 STDs: There are twelve stds. Some are bacterial, some are viral, etc. Prostatitis is, in general, not caused by stds. And many chronic prostatitis situations are not caused by infection. You may want to seek out online the natural approaches to managing chronic prostatitis. Or you may want to consult a urologist since the symptoms are persisting. I just want to point out that there are a lot more stds.

How can I prevent inflammation of stomach lining due to blood thinner plavix (clopidogrel)?

Take with food: Do not take the medicine on an empty stomach and it sometimes is helpful to take medicines such as antacids that are used to treat gastritis. Many people can take Plavix (clopidogrel) without problems. Some of the medications can interfere with the action of the Plavix (clopidogrel) so consult your physician.

Depends : Std's with sore throat are much less likely than sore throat from common reasons. Unprotected sex increases the risk.

Maybe. Notify MD: Liver disorders can cause dark urine. Discolored urine can also be caused by certain foods, medication, and kidney infections. Also if you haven't been hydrating due to nausea, the next urine may come out darker than usual. The bottom line is, your physician should know about this so he/she can run more tests and get a better idea of what might be going on.
