Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more

Would ghonnorea or clamidia cause false positive HIV ELISA test?

Would ghonnorea or clamidia cause false positive HIV ELISA test?

Possible: The elisa test can be affected by different infections, causing a false-positive result. After any positive elisa, a follow-up test is performed by a 'western blot' which takes longer to perform, but gives a more sensitive answer. If you or someone you know had a positive HIV by elisa, they absolutely need the follow-up testing (including a full std/sti work up). ...Read more

Can cunnilingus or fellatio transmit HPV (human papilloma virus) infections?

Can cunnilingus or fellatio transmit HPV (human papilloma virus) infections?

Yes to both but rare: The hpv virus is ubiquitous. But most of us, most of the time, are able to fight off its affects in terms of warts or precancerous changes of the cervix. That's just the preamble. Your question was about contracting it through cunnilingous or felatio. Yes it is possible but saliva, for the most part will kill the hpv. Never the less, there are increasing reports of oral/throat hpv. ...Read more
