HC of pyelonephritis: When you are told that the urine test was - it just means it did not grow on the culture media that they chose to grow on. Try taking Ellura, a cranberry extract which prevents the bacteria from attaching to your bladder wall. It's not an antibiotic but it works quite well. ...Read more

Uti symptoms but no UTI on culture is what?

It may never show up: Utis is a clinical diagnosis - that means for a physician, we rely mainly on the patient's symptoms (pain on urination, hesitancy, frequency, flank/supra pubic pain) to make a dx. In many cases, we can grow and isolate the offending organism in the lab in <24hrs.. In other cases, it is much harder to do this (eg chlamydia, ureaplasma, mycoplasma) - sometimes resulting in a negative culture. ...Read more

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more
