Can you have cervicitis and a UTI without having a STD type of bacteria or virus?

Yes, but r/o std: A woman can have cervicitis and urinary infection as unrelated entities, without std. However, it would be prudent to rule out std, especially gonorrhea and chlamydia as these are common and treatable. ...Read more

It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more

Can sperm have bacteria that could cause a uti? My husband and I have been checked for std's. Only when he goes inside of me is when I get a uti.

UTI.: Uti following intercourse is more related to urethral trauma and perhaps driving of bacteria upwards into the bladder. These are best prevented by good hygiene, good hydration and urination after intercourse. If this doesn't work then prophylactic antibiotics can be considered. ...Read more

For uti caused by non-STD bacteria, will it infect the prostate also while infecting the epididymis?

For uti caused by non-STD bacteria, will it infect the prostate also while infecting the epididymis?

See below: As a general rule, all bacterial UTIs in men are considered "complicated." Primarily because of their increased "potential" to not just arise from and affect the bladder only, which is the more common scenario in women, but to affect the kidneys, prostate, and epididymis leading to more serious symptoms, potential complications, and increased morbidity. Often a sign of an underlying problem. ...Read more

Can you have a UTI caused by more than one bacteria such as a non STD bacteria and one such as chlamydia at the same time?

Can you have a UTI caused by more than one bacteria such as a non STD bacteria and one such as chlamydia at the same time?

You bet: Sexual activity is one of the most effective means of transmission of infection, and persons who have one std have a significant likelihood of having more than one. Syphilis, gonorrhea, trichomonas, chlamydia, hiv, and others can all coexist. Be careful. ...Read more

I have horrible burning when I urinate. I have had two UTI tests done and both come back negative for bacteria. I know it can't be an STD.?

I have horrible burning when I urinate. I have had two UTI tests done and both come back negative for bacteria. I know it can't be an STD.?

Keep working w/ doc: Some UTIs are missed by standard culture tests. Herpes can cause this even in people who seem to be at low risk for STD. Or another STD like gonorrhea or chlamydia, e.g. if your partner has been at risk without your knowledge. You could have a non-infectious bladder problem, like interstial cystitis. Keep working with your doctor, or see a specialist e.g. urologist. This can be worked out. ...Read more

I tested negative for nitrates and leukocytes on the UTI test. Seems I am free of bacteria. Does this mean I am free of UTI and STD infection?

I tested negative for nitrates and leukocytes on the UTI test. Seems I am free of bacteria. Does this mean I am free of UTI and STD infection?

Yes & no: Negative nitrites & leukocytes means that it's very unlikely for you to have a urinary tract infection. We also look under microscope for presence of white blood cells & bacteria as other signs of bladder or kidney infection. However, normal urinalysis doesn't tell us whether you have a sexually transmitted disease/infection or not. You have to ask for specific tests for each infection. ...Read more

Will a UTI or vaginal bacterial infection or STD appear within hours of a female receiving prolonged (approx. One hour) of unprotected oral sex?

Depends: UTI or vaginal infection from oral sex is not likely. STDs are possible if the person giving oral sex has active sores on the lips or inside the mouth. If you are concerned about contracting STDs, you can get oral condoms. Practice safe sex is the best way to prevent STDs. ...Read more

UTI sym. Friend went to doc & they tested her for bacterial infections and STDS. Is that standard procedure to test for everything? Friend is nervous.

No such thing as...: In modern medicine, there is no such thing as "everything" but doctors and patients might call it "everything". Specific tests are selected at one visit. If results are not as expected, and more testing is needed, then additional tests are selected. Only in very strange and hard-to-diagnose cases, after multiple visits and trips to specialists, should one say the "everything" has been tested for. ...Read more

What STD's can be detected by a pap smear? How long does it take for results? Does Pap smear show yeast bacterial vaginosis as well? Hiv? UTI?

What STD's can be detected by a pap smear? How long does it take for results? Does Pap smear show yeast bacterial vaginosis as well? Hiv? UTI?

See below: PAP smear is not designed to test for STDs. However it may reveal, herpes, HPV, trichhomonas, yeast and bacterial vaginosis. PAP results may a take a couple of weeks. Not finding these in a PAP smear does not exclude these infections. PAP does not reveal HIV. If you have a concern, you should see a doctor and get specific tests for the particular infection in question.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Needs an ID doctor: Some infections are not that easy to recognize - and if you have symptoms that are ongoing and troublesome, I would recommend seeing an Infectious Diseases doctor who can help sort things out. This 'second opinion' is sometimes what's needed when the initial work-up is non-revealing. Hope you find some relief! ...Read more

Is urethritis an std? What bacteria or virus would that be?

Is urethritis an std? What bacteria or virus would that be?

Maybe: The term refers to inflammation of the urethra, which is the tube which runs from the bladder and carries urine out. This can be due to stds, but there are many non-sexually associated conditions in which urethritis may occur. When it is std, usually gonorrhea or non-gonococcal urethritis (variety of bugs). ...Read more

Is occasional yellowish discharge with no odor ever normal? Negative for STDs, BV, yeast. What other bacteria/virus can be causing this?

Is occasional yellowish discharge with no odor ever normal? Negative for STDs, BV, yeast. What other bacteria/virus can be causing this?

Vaginal discharge: When it comes to vaginal discharge, a wide range of appearance can be normal; each woman is different. Make sure STD testing included DNA tests for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichonmonas. Non-STD cervical inflammation (cervicitis) might do it. If this is a new problem, you should keep working with your doctor on it. ...Read more

I had an acute UTI last month and the doctor didn't state which type of uti on the paper. Does that mean I can possibly got an STD from my partner?

I had an acute UTI last month and the doctor didn't state which type of uti on the paper. Does that mean I can possibly got an STD from my partner?

Confusing issue: When you were labeled a UTI, was it from a urine culture or just white cells in your pee? If it was a urine culture they could know the germ that caused it. If just symptoms & a urine showing germs/white cells it could have been a STD. Urine cultures don't find STD germs. They must be tested for specifically. Any sexual encounter can give you a STD, protection or not. ...Read more

Why does sex burn my vagina? I don't have any type of STD and no bladder infection or uti. What could be the problem? . We do lube.

Water soluble lube?: If you are using a water soluble lube such as k-y or maxi lube then it is likely that you are experiencing either a ph reaction to his sperm or an allergy. Wearing a condom will rule out the latter. Semen is slightly alkaline and the vagina is mildly acidic and can cause a mild acid/base reaction in some women. ...Read more

Is it rare to have say both ghonnirea, herpes, a yeast infection and cervicitis? I'm sure I have an Std but I have sores maybe from yeast infection?

Infection: Women who get one STD are at risk of others. We often test for multiple infections at the same time due to this fact. Sores are not associated with yeast, more likely herpes. The only way to be sure is to see your GYN. ...Read more

Can you tell me if mucopurulent cervicitis only comes from stds?

Can you tell me if mucopurulent cervicitis only comes from stds?

Not always an STD: The causes of mucopurulent cervicitis (or cervicitis in general) remain largely unknown. STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, and herpes can do it, and sometimes trichomonas. HPV probably isn't a cause, but HPV of the cervix can look like cervicitis. So STD testing is always necessary, but reults usually are negative. ...Read more
