What are the differences between chlamydia and gonorrhea symptoms and how can you guess which one you have before you decide to get tested?

What are the differences between chlamydia and gonorrhea symptoms and how can you guess which one you have before you decide to get tested?

Not too many: The two conditions can be remarkably similar. Gc usually presents with more pain and purulent discharge, but have seen the same thing with non-gonococcal urethritis, usually due to chlamydia.

Was + for gonorrhea, treated, symptoms returned. 2nd culture -. False negative or resistant strain? Also allergic to cephalexin, so no rocephin

Was + for gonorrhea, treated, symptoms returned. 2nd culture -. False negative or resistant strain? Also allergic to cephalexin, so no rocephin

? Allergic: Being allergic to cephalexin doesn't mean you can't have rocephin. A false negative is rare with a gonorrhea test. If that's the case they would try a culture instead of a PCR. A urine test should be done for spinning down cells to see if elevated leukocytes. If your symptoms returned then you likely have it and it's likely resistant. Hopefully they treated it with 2 antibiotics and not just 1. ...Read more
