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
Ngu oral sex. Chlamydia, gc, myco gen neg. 1 swab was 7wbc. wife took doxy & I took aizthrmycin 1g. swabs since <5wbc. Never discharge or pain. Ngu?
Unclear treatment: If you and your wife’s tests are all negative indicating no infection then it is unclear to me why antibiotics were given. Doxycycline and Zithromax in those doses are standard treatment for chlamydia yet both of you were negative. Treatment should not be based on WBC alone especially given that you have no symptoms. Clarify the underlying problem trying to be addressed please. ...Read more

Stop sex, see MD: The shot (probably ceftriaxone) was for gonorrhea, not BV. Bartholin gland infection can be caused by gonorrhea, chlamydia, BV bacteria, and others. You shouldn't be having sex with these problems until all symptoms cleared up. Return to your doctor for re-evaluation and probably additional antibiotics(s). Partner also needs treatment if not yet done. Good luck! ...Read more
Had discharge, doc tests for Gonorrhea & chlamydia. Both negative.Treated for both anyway. Dr said urethritis. Will azithromycin & cefTRIAXone stop it?
