Bacterial vaginosis: This is a common problem. Antibiotics you took causes a change in the natural balance of bacteria, that now cursed overgrowth of harmful bacteria. Metronidazole is one of the antibiotics that can be used to treat, however I recommend seeing your doctor to confirm diagnosis by doing pelvic exam and a lab test.

I took azithromycin (1000g) for chlamydia a week ago. I still have slight abdominal pain? Is that normal?

Chlamydia: Did you have a reaction to taking azithromycin? ie diarrhea/cramping/nausea? Unlikely to be from Azithromycin or the chlamydia. Go back to your treating doctor for an exam.

I have been treated for chlamydia but am still experience abdominal pain. Doctor said it may settle but I am worried about pid. Could I have pid?

It's possilbe: It's possible, but I would defer to the physician treating you. Where you also treated for gonorrhea, as well? Usually both are treated simultaneously and they respond readily to anitbiotics. If it doesn't improve or continues to progress, definitely go back to your doc.

Return to doc ASAP: Chlamydia can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), i.e. fallopian tube infection, which causes low abdominal pain. It is atypical for the pain of PID to start after being treated for chlamydia, but it's still possible. Untreated PID can be quite dangerous, so don't delay. Maybe nothing serious, but don't take the chance. Contact your doctor's office ASAP. Good luck!

Frequent urination. Abdominal pain. Vaginal burning. Yeast neg. Trich neg. Clue cell neg. Chlamydia/ghonnarea neg.

Blood sugar and UA?: Hi. It seems like you've checked most (certainly not all) infectious causes for vaginal burning. I would suggest checking a urinalysis with microscopic (and culture, if indicated) and a serum glucose. A UTI and diabetes could be possible. Good luck!

Frequent urination. Little coming out. Abdominal pain. Blood tests fine. Chlamydia/gonorrhea neg. What could this be?

Urinary infection: It seems like you may have a urinary tract infection (uti). Your doctor may do a urinalysis and urine culture. Given your symptoms your doctor may want to 'prophylactically' treat you for a uti prior to knowing the results of the culture.

Freq urination. Abdominal pain. Urine analysis neg. Blood tests normal. Chlamydia/gonorrhea neg. What could this be?

Here are some. ..: After ruling out UTI as reported, one has to make sure if you're able to hold urine or to empty bladder well or have over-drinking of fluids or consume bladder irritants such as alcohol, coffee, caffeine-containing beverages, spicy foods, etc. So, work with Doc and be checked out so to deduce possible causes for proposing reasonable Rx.

Perhaps: See an ob/gyn doctor and get a full history and exam including a pelvic, with tests for stds other than chlamydia. Hope all turns out well.

I have chlamydia, I think I was infected 3 months ago. Is that too short a time to develop PID? I have severe abdominal pain and irregular bleeding.

See a Doctor: If you have Chlamydia and abdominal pain and irregular periods, you must see a doctor immediately. It is never too soon to get PID after you have Chlamydia. You must do a pregnancy test to make sure you do not have a tubal pregnancy. Please see a doctor and Good Luck!

Is prostatitis an std? Can you pass that during intercourse? Chlamydia and gonorrhea negative. What else cause prostatitis? After sex wife is complaining of on and off pelvic and abdominal pain.

Is prostatitis an std? Can you pass that during intercourse? Chlamydia and gonorrhea negative. What else cause prostatitis? After sex wife is complaining of on and off pelvic and abdominal pain.

Prostatitis: This can be bacterial, or non-infectious, or due to organisms other than bacteria. It is not generally thought of as an STD but certainly some microorganisms may wind up in the prostate after being acquired sexually. It is not likely that you transmitted this to your wife and is responsible for her symptoms but she does need to be evaluated. Best wishes.
