Can A Urine Sample Detect St Ds
Chlamydia, gonorrhea: It depends on what is available at the office/place you seek treatment. It is common to be able to check for chlamydia & gonorrhea with a urine sample at emergency rooms & urgent care centers. Not all places have the means to do all tests. Sometimes trichomonas can be seen on a microscopic exam of the urine, but that method is not the best way to check for trich. Urine tests are less reliable.See 1 more doctor answer
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
I urinated 30 minutes before giving a urine sample for STD testing. Does this reduce effectivness of amp test?
Possible...: How long should one wait to collect urine for testing STD? There is no firm set rule, but it is sensible to wait for 2-4 hairs at least so to let the std-related germs produce enough amount of their metabolic residual for testing; of course, make sure to collect the first (dirty) part of urine, not the midstream. That is why the first part of morning urine is the best specimen for testing STD.
Here are some. ..: Good question! But, in daily medical practice, the best result of test comes from testing the timely collected fresh specimen, especially the urine which is known to change its odor & cloudiness from oxidation and many sequential chemical change after exposing to the air. So, give a fresh urine as advised. Yet, I don't believe there has been a scientific study to specifically address your question
Would giving a STD urine sample on Saturday and it not going into the lab till Tuesday affect the testing for a DNA style test? Stored in Refrigerator
Here are some. ..: Technically, a fresh specimen is best for testing, but logistically, refrigerating specimen is a common practice if the timing difference in testing result is acceptable. So, ask the local lab for detail and even preference.
Is white discharge discomfort and burning a sign of UTI or bacterialv I have no STDs dr only did a urine sample said its a UTI I think it's bacterialv?
See a Gynecologist: Vaginal discharge, irritation may associated with a infection other than a yeast infection. You should see your gynecologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. You may have a yeast infection resistant to that specific otc medication. Other infections such a bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, contact dermatitis, or other skin conditions can have similar symptoms to a yeast infection.See 1 more doctor answer
If you had an STD and gave a urine sample for a standard UTI screen, would bacteria from std be mistaken for just a UTI?
Usually not: STD screening and or germ testing must be ordered specifically because the germs involved require specialized testing and or growth media. Some UTI screening is based on presence of pus cells, which might cause a STD to be mistaken for a UTI. The best UTI screening is based on a culture which would miss the STD.
Yes I understand that, but I never had any STDs period, I was having trouble urinating and all that was taken was a urine sample and prescribed antibiot?
Urinary hesitancy: Hi Thomas, If you are having problems initiating your urinary stream, I would recommend that a physician manually examine your prostate gland. You may want to see a urology specialist, if you do not feel that you received a complete urinary evaluation of your problem.
Std testing and urine sample dr said I have UTI I think is bacterialv I have discomfort and white discharge and I have no STD dr prescribed sulfameth?
Urinary Tract Infect: It sounds like the doctor has put you on a medication to treat a uti. There is nothing else in your statement above that appears to be a question so am not sure what you are really asking for here. It sounds all normal.
Doctor storing STD urine sample in refridger at his clinic from Saturday-Tuesday till being send to the lab affect the results? Causing false negtive?
Depends: If he puts it in a certain container that prevents further growth of bacteria, it would be accurate. If not, it's more likely to be falsely positive since small amounts of bacteria contaminants could grow to the amount of colonize that constitute a UTI.
Several: Gonorrhea or chlamydia of the throat or rectum won't be picked up by blood or urine samples. Throat/rectal swabs are required. Herpes is not diagnosed by blood or urine tests either. (blood tests will tell you whether you have herpes in your body, but they won't tell you whether you have an active outbreak.) there are other less common stds that require other tests as well.
Can all std's be diagnosed in both men and women by just having their blood and urine samples? Without taking pap smear or swabs from them?
Urine tests pos for leukocytes, cultures and catheterized sample and CT scan all neg. Only symptom is some pain in kidney area. Could this be an std?
Possibly: If you had leukocytes and dysuria with negative culture I would say yes, but the flack pain is unusual with an std. You should still probably be screened if you are concerned or at risk for an std.
Water sports: I am surprised to see this question here. It is a first for me. But, urine play during a sexual encounter is a common experience that some couples use to enhance their sexuality. It is very difficult to think that urine exposure can put one at risk for stds. Most stds require blood, semen, or vaginal secretions to pass along the std.
No, ancient myth: Throughout modern medical history, when it was learned that STDs are infections transmitted from partners, there have been rumors and stories about infections caught from toilet seats, shared clothing or towels, and so on. It's an urban myth and always was, used by patients (and in past years, some doctors) to explain away some infections in people who seemed to be at low risk. It never happens.
No: There are more than a dozen diseases that can be passed through sexual contact. Only a fraction will shed any material into the urine that could be used for diagnosis and treatment.
STD: That would very unlikely. The std would likely need to make contact with a mucosal membrane (like mouth or genitalia) on you or go directly in through a break in your skin (depending on what it is). In other words the type of contact you have would not be conducive to this. However, there can be lots of germs in general on toilets- so hope you clean toilets with gloves. Take care.
