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

Depends.: In an normal urinalysis they do not test for stds. But you can use the same urine sample to test for chlamydia or gonorrhea. When they take blood for the syphilis test, the can also test for HIV and hep c, but not for chlamydia or gonorrhea. In summary, to have a "full std panel", you need to give both blood and urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unpleasant feeling in urethra. Sti checks via pcr negative. semen sample positive enterococcus faecalis. not found in urine Can this cause urethritis?
Can a simple urine analysis, urine culture or semen analysis report detects HIV infections/bacteria or stds?
Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.
Normal bacteria: It's normal to have U. urealyticum in the genital tract. Once in a while it causes nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) in men, but generally harmless both in men and their sex partners. UU doesn't show up on routine tests; testing is rarely needed except in special circumstances. So nothing to worry about, especially if no symptoms. If in doubt, see an STD or infectious diseases expert. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Urine tests for STD: Yes. But, the doctor has to order this test and it may require a special tube to transport the urine to the lab. If you did not discuss this with your provider you may still be able to have this test added to your labs if you phone them and express your concerns. But, when you are at the doctor's office please remember to state all of your questions or concerns. ...Read more

Testing: Chlamydia tests include a culture that may take 5 to 7 days to grow. A direct fluorescent antibody test looks for antigens. A nucleic acid hybridization test or a nucleic acid amplification test looks for chlamydia dna &enzyme –linked immunosorbent assay. Directing sampling uses fluids from cervix, urethra throat, eye (whichever area is impacted). Urine testing is also possible. ...Read more
No.: Chlamydia pneumoniae causes respiratory infection and is transmitted through the air. It is not sexually transmitted. Pap smear is not designed to detect chlamydia infection of any kind. Diagnosis of chladmyida trachomatis is by culture or dna testing. See this site for more information. http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/reporter/index.html?id=779. ...Read more

Would urine culture & sensitivity test at first antenatal appointment show chlamydia ect?Midwife didn't give me a pap test but took blood and urine.
Maybe: Chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis or other STDs can only be detected if you look for them. Specialized lab material & personnel time is required. The routine prenatal urinalysis or culture looks for regular germs. Urine could be used to detect chlamydia & gonorrhea if they submit it for the extra testing. The blood could be screened for evidence of several germs (syphilis, herpes) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Freq. urination with slight pain. Herpes neg. chlamydia neg. gonnorhea neg. UTI neg. BV Neg. Urine Culture Neg. yeast neg. What else could it be?
Maybe not infection: Since the question states that tests for infection have negative results, the cause of symptoms may be non-infectious. Such causes may include problems with the bladder muscles, the bladder or urethra lining, the rectum, the nerves that go to the bladder, etc... One's primary care doctor can do some more evaluation, and may refer to a urologist if needed. ...Read more
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
Had chlamydia 2 months ago and got treated. Still having epididymitis. Urine cultures are negative and no white blood cells. Could it be from healing?
Recheck with doctor: Epididymitis this long after chlamydia is unlikely. If you had epididymitis when diagnosed -- i.e. marked tenderness and swelling of a single testicle -- follow up with the doctor who treated you. If it's just vague testicular pain, probably nothing is still wrong and it will fade with time. In any case, if you were treated properly for chlamydia, you can be sure the infection itself is gone. ...Read more
Been having epididymitis for 2 months. Not chlamydia and urine cultures come back negative. Already took doxycycline, cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Zithro. What is it?
Doubt epididymitis: Epididymitis doesn't persist for 2 months. It causes enlargement and tenderness of a single testicle, almost never both; and doesn't cause ongoing testicular pain for this long. I doubt you have epididymitis. Non-response to those antibiotics is strong evidence you have no infection of any kind. Suspect chronic pelvic pain syndrome (see excellent Wikipedia article). Nothing harmful! Good luck. ...Read more
Normal ranges: The urinalysis report should contain a normal reference range for each item tested. If there are any tests that fall out of that range, it will be flagged as abnormal. As far as a urine culture is concerned, if the specimen was collected correctly, any bacteria found would be considered abnormal and should probably be treated, especially if you have symptoms of a urinary tract infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
