Std (Definition)

This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities.

Persistent ngu: Oral tetracyclines and erythromycin are well established choices of treatment. Despite adequate treatment, about 30-35% of NGU persist or recur. The cause of persistence or recurrence remains unknown. Prostate gland involvement has to be ruled out where indicated. A 4 to 6 week course of tetracyclines or erythromycin is suggested for persistent or recurrent NGU. See a urologist. ...Read more

DX ngu from oral sex from unknown female. All std neg inc MG. doxycycline taken by me & wife. I still have symptoms but neg swab. Should I be concern?

DX ngu from oral sex from unknown female. All std neg inc MG. doxycycline taken by me & wife. I still have symptoms but neg swab. Should I be concern?

No worries: There are mysteries about NGU from oral sex. Many (most?) cases probably are not STD in the usual sense, just the urethra's adjustment to new bacteria that don't otherwise cause disease. Symptoms often persist after treatment, but no harm is known to result if no discharge or other evidence of inflammation. No disease has been reported in men's regular partners, but Rx is routine to be certain. ...Read more

Is metronidazole, injection of ceftriaxone and zithromycin enough to treat PID not caused by an STI? I'm 2 weeks pregnant so can't take doxycycline.

Is metronidazole, injection of ceftriaxone and zithromycin enough to treat PID not caused by an STI? I'm 2 weeks pregnant so can't take doxycycline.

Here are some ...: Clinically, the antibiotic treatment you've received should cover all common PID-related bacteria. At this time, you should direct & bring all your existing concern to the treating Doc for analysis, follow-up, modification, etc. Further online chat, I'm afraid, will further confuse you with more anxiety and fear instead of help you. So, keep a close contact with your Doc so to refine the care.... ...Read more

I had doxycycline before for STD now I need it again, scared of being allergic. I was fine last time so should be fine again?

No Worries: Since you tolerated this medication last time you are at no greater risk than the general population for developing an allergy to doxycycline. Of course you need to be exposed to a medication first before you can develop an allergy, but that should not prevent you from taking medications for a second time. Having a history of being atopic (allergic) is not a risk factor for most drug allergies. ...Read more

Can a shot "doze" of antibiodics and 1 week of doxycycline eleminate ant UTI and STD i may have had?

Can a shot "doze" of antibiodics and 1 week of doxycycline eleminate ant UTI and STD i may have had?

Not sure: Use of antibiotics depend on the bacteria causing the infection. Urine should be sent to the lab for culture to finfd the organism and then sensitivity of the organism to the antibiotics is assessed. Based on the results, antibiotics should be prescribed. A broad spectrum antibiotic eg. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) may be tried by a physician, without c&s. Tx of std is similar & depends on the organism involved. ...Read more

Can DOXYCYCLINE HYCLATE 100 MG TABS treat std in a week.

Yes for chlamydia: Doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for a week is one of the standard recommended treatments for chlamydia, or for the sex partners of men with nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). It is highly effective for these. However, it is not reliable for other STDs like gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomonas, or a viral STD like herpes. If uncertain about these, ask your doctor about other treatments. Good luck! ...Read more

I was treated for an STD on monday the 19 th its saturday and i still have a discharge is that normal? I was given doxycycline 100 mgs.

If : If your symptoms are still present, then you will need to see you doctor. You may be dealing with a different infection that requires another antibiotic. You should have been given an injection as well (antibiotic called ceftriaxone) to cover a possible gonorrhea infection. Please follow up. Good luck. ...Read more
