Diagnosed with clymydia, took a gram of azithromycin. Week/2 week I still feel" sore urethra " no discharge. Worried about hiv-Took test 2/3 week neg?

Return to doctor: Chlamydia is not a likely cause of "sore urethra" and for sure HIV doesn't do this. Heterosexually transmitted HIV is more rare than you might think from the media; the chance you caught it is extremely low. How reassuring your HIV test is depends on which test was done (there are 15-20 of them in the US). Check back on both issues with the doctor or clinic where you were treated. ...Read more

Urethra (Definition)

In men, it is about 20-cm long with a membranous, prostatic, bulbar, and pendulous segments ending at the glans penis; it gives passage to the spermatic fluid as well as urine.

I always have a mucus type of liquid in my urethra and always have small stains on my underwear in the morn, bu neg. For all tests. What could it be?

Ambiguous: You don't mention if you're male or female and it does matter. If male, you have urethritis - may be chlamydial, gonorrhea, or non-specific. If female, you may have vaginal or urethral discharge: trichomonal, candidal, mycoplasmal, as well as gonorrhea or chlamydial. "all" tests are probably not negative. Go back for more evaluation. ...Read more

You should get tests: For other possible causes of urethritis or urinary infection. If you are not circumcised, it's possible that you may have local yeast overgrowth causing irritation. Especially since you were on medication that would not cure all potential causes of urethritis or all sexually transmitted infection, you may need more tests and treatment. Avoid sex until your doc says you're OK, and partner treated. ...Read more

See a urologist.: Diagnosis of a skin lesion such as this requires a detailed history and physical examination. White colored abnormalities of the skin of the penis can be a skin pigment condition like vitiligo, or if it involves the lining of the urethra, a condition called lichen sclerosis et atrophicus. Please see a urologist who can help you come to a diagnosis & treatment plan where needed. ...Read more

What can cause urethra pain in a mail if he has had tests showing no abnormalities and has taken cipro (ciprofloxacin) and his culture is now negative.?

Complicated: He should seriously consider seeing a urologist. Although probably harmless and something that will resolve with time and good diet, this could be something more serious that needs to be treated. Meanwhile, continue using condoms, even though the tests are "negative". Always play it on the safe side; you don't want to play ping pong with chlamydia, an infection that can affect your fertility. ...Read more

Penis urethra touched public toilet bowl. 6 week Oraquick showed neg. status.  No risks previous, HIV negative before this incident.  Risks?

Here are some...: Your alert about catching something (?STD) is highly commended, but overboard for life reality. In daily living, we rely on 2 lines of self protection to fend off the invasion of infective agents: first, external with skin and mucosa; second, internal with personal humoral immunity. So, if the first line is not broke, one will not catch it; if yes, one may not develop illness if humoral immunity.. ...Read more

Can a slightly narrow urethra in a man cause chronic non-std epidymitis? I keep getting it and that is my only real thing wrong with me. All tests neg

Doubtful: I doubt slight urethral narrowing would cause epididymitis. But I wonder if you have recurrent epididymitis at all. If you don't have obvious enlargement and marked tenderness of a single testicle, epididymitis is unlikely. It rarely causes just testicular pain or discomfort without swelling, and rarely both testicles at once. Maybe chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS)? Google it for more info. ...Read more

Irritation from soap: Questions to consider; Doxy is not a good UTI, so you still may have an infection. Doxy is good for vaginal. Something in contact that is irritating like gels, fabric softeners.

I tested negative for sti, but still have an itchy urethra and painless rashes on my penile?

Contact allergy: Good you've tested negative for a sexually transmitted disease (STD), but given you still have a problem, the doctors should seek out the cause. I wonder if you might have a contact allergy - perhaps to a new detergent, latex condoms or some other chemical or compound. If you show the rashes to a doctor, you hopefully can get some answers and then a plan to take care of the problem. ...Read more

Can benzo withdrawal cause irritation in urethra?had every test done all negative even prostate.After I pee urethra feels irritated stinging. Help!

Something's amiss...: Benzodiazepines (withdrawal or overdoses) aren't associated with urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), according to FDA.gov & other sources in my library. So, something seems amiss. Were you tested for infectious diseases? Did you see a Urologist for diagnosis? Are you sure you don't have Interstitial Cystitis (IC) or some other diagnosis? Use HealthTap Prime or TTYD to exclude other causes. ...Read more

Bladder, pelvis, urethra ache constantly, NEG for UTI, POS for BV. Will treating BV solve my symptoms? No discharge; symptoms don't really match dx!

Ache: Treating underlying BV should help in symptoms. Also be sure to avoid sugars, carbs, and all gluten. Drink 100% cranberry juice diluted with water & stevia to help keep urine acidic to avoid UTIs, as well. Drink plenty of water. Do you smoke & how much do you weigh? These factors can affect urinary symptoms also. ...Read more
