Spit test positive for yeast infection. Recently finished antibiotics for chlamydia. Urethra discomfort and discharge in urine. No external itching.
Been on antibiotics for 3 days. 2 days since antibiotic course completed, still dark yellow urine. Is it because of antibiotics?
Mild burn tip of penis after peeing. Chlamydia-GC, Urea/Mycoplasma, Urine culture tests clean. Ciproflox didn't help. Symptoms started after oral sex.
Not an STD: Without urethral discharge, the chance of any STD is very low. STDs rarely cause such burning etc without discharge. Oral sex is particularly low risk, and virtually zero risk for chlamydia or mycoplasma. Any STD you might have had would have shown up with testing, and that it continued despite ciprofloxacin is additional evidence against infection. Almost certainly nothing serious. Maybe anxiety? ...Read more
