Can bactrim treat gonnorhea? Was prescribed for UTI but also tested possitive for gonnorhea.

Gonorrhea treatment: Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim®) is not recommended or reliable against gonorrhea. It might work but is dangerously risky; you need proper gonorrhea treatment with an injection of ceftriaxone plus either azithromycin or doxycycline. Contact your doctor immediately to arrange treatment. Also make sure all recent (1-2 mo.) sex partners are tested and treated. Good luck! ...Read more

Can I have intercourse while being treated for bacterial vaginosis? Have been placed on Flagyl 500mg

Can I have intercourse while being treated for bacterial vaginosis? Have been placed on Flagyl 500mg

The : The most common reason for bad smelling discharge in a woman in a monogamous relationship is bacterial vaginosis (bv). Bv is not a sexually transmitted disease, but is an imbalance between the "good" and "bad" bacterial that normally live in the vagina. Douching and having sex can put you at risk since both activities cause a change in the vaginal environment leading to an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria. Many women will complain of a fishy odor, increased discharge and a few may even have itching and discomfort. Bv is typically treated with a short course of antibiotics. You probably shouldn't have sex while being treated for BV because it can re-introduce the "bad" bacteria you are trying to get rid of and disrupt the growth of the "good" bacteria. If you must have sex, have your partner wear a condom to reduce the chance of re-infection. ...Read more

Can i still have pelvic inflammatory diseases after being treated for chlamydia? Would this mean chlamydia isn't gone and partner and need retreatmen

Can i still have  pelvic inflammatory diseases after being treated for chlamydia? Would this mean chlamydia isn't gone and partner and need retreatmen

Maybe...: This depends on exactly how you were treated. Even when chlamydia is the apparent cause of PID, usually additional bacteria (most normal vaginal bacteria) also are involved, so PID often requires treatment for more than chlamydia. The chlamydia itself probably is gone, but you still should not be having sex at all until PID completely gone and all partner(s) treated for chlamydia. ...Read more

Can BV last for 2 months without going away with medication? What should I do? Been tested & treated for yeast,Trich,chlamyd, Cervicitis, & Gonnarea

Bacterial vaginosis: Sounds like you have been treated completely for all the usual suspects BV is linked to an imbalance between "good" bacteria and "bad" bacteria in the vagina. So - to answer you - yes it can last for a while and resolve on its own assuming the "bacterial harmony" of the vagina is restored. I suspect one of the meds you took finally did the trick. ...Read more
