Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid? Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative .

Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative .

Probably not, but...: Prostatitis isn't an STD, and with negative gonorrhea and chlamydia, probably no PID risk for your wife. However, some docs mistakenly diagnose nongonococcal urethritis (an STD)as prostatitis. If you've had abnormal discharge from your penis, it's probably NGU, not prostatitis. If so, and if you had sex w/ your wife after the source of your infection, your wife could be at risk & needs treatment. ...Read more

If prostatitis is caused by chlamydia or an STD and u test neg for the STD in a urine sample but got prostatitis from oral sex. Is it contagious?

Prostatitis vs STD: Prostatitis is not an STD and not sexually acquired. Chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis. However, prostatitis has overlapping symptoms with some STDs, especially nongonococcal urethritis (NGU); it can be hard to tell them apart. NGU can be acquired oral to penis but chlamydia only rarely. Prostatitis is not contagious for sex partners. The risk to partners from non-chlamydial NGU is uncertain. ...Read more

Prostatitis: This can be bacterial, or non-infectious, or due to organisms other than bacteria.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea neg.

doxy, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) z pack, no help. Flagyl helped little.

Doubt prostatitis: No STD or any infection that might cause prostatitis is possible from such contact.

Most men with such symptoms have genitally focused anxiety--pain from pevlic muscle tension not prostate. That all the antibiotics didn't help is very strong evidence against infection. ...Read more
