Std (Definition)

This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more

?

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?

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

Have epididymitis given 10 days levofloxcin no cure then tested later for sti clear but pain persists testicles after 2wks doxycycline? Help

See Urology: The treatment of choice is often azithromycin and cefixime to cover both gonorrhoeae and chlamydia. Fluoroquinolones are no longer recommended due to widespread resistance of gonorrhoeae to this class. Doxycycline may be used as an alternative to azithromycin. In chronic epididymitis, a four- to six-week course of antibiotics may be prescribed to ensure the complete eradication of any possible bacterial cause, especially the various chlamydiae. ...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

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

Blood and urine sti tests return clear but pain in testicles and lower back present. Been given 2 x daily doxycycline 14 days on day 7 and worried?

Possible infection: Finish your antibiotic course. If the pain persists, you should see your PCP for back imaging to rule out a nerve root impingement (lower lumbar nerves run to the scrotum and testicals) if this is negative see a urologist for work up. ...Read more

Hi, my urethra is inflamed, I've been to a GUM clinic twice and had various tests done, no signs of bacteria present and all STI results came back clear, I've tried azithromicin, doxycycline and ciprofloxacin and nothing has worked. Also noticed was a pai

Doubt urethritis: If "inflamed" includes urethral discharge and/or white blood cells, ask the GUM clinic about testing and/or treating for possible Mycoplasma genitalium and trichomonas. If you only have urinary discomfort or a little redness at the opening, with no discharge or increased WBC, probably you have no infection at all. Probably you have nothing that will ever harm you or sex partners. Good luck! ...Read more

Recently I've found myself very sexually active with multiple partners daily. Would taking Doxycycline daily be reasonable to prevent STD's?

Recently I've found myself very sexually active with multiple partners daily.  Would taking Doxycycline daily be reasonable to prevent STD's?

Yes...and No...: There are many sexually transmitted infections: Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Herpes, HIV, Hepatitis, Trichomoniasis, Human Papiloma Virus... There is some evidence that daily Doxycycline will help prevent the first 3: Gonorrhea,Chlamydia and Syphilis but not the rest. Changing your lifestyle and using condoms will help with the others. Best wishes! ...Read more

Ngu from oral sex. Treated with doxycycline, 1g aiztrthmycin and 28 days cipro (ciprofloxacin). Still have symptoms. All std neg. Worried it wont go. Other cause?

Ngu from oral sex. Treated with doxycycline, 1g aiztrthmycin and 28 days cipro (ciprofloxacin). Still have symptoms. All std neg. Worried it wont go. Other cause?

Not an infection: Many mysteries about NGU from oral sex, but often not true urethritis and not due to bacteria caught from partner. Whatever the original cause, persisting symptoms now despite all those antibiotics is proof that they are not due to infection. Some men just have persistent symptoms, but it's not harmful for affected men or their partners. More abts won't help and I doubt need for any further Rx. ...Read more

Always feeling the need to urinate. Doxycycline helped, but after 6 weeks it came back.Clear UTI&STD tests.Emptying bladder fully+?

Urology referral: Always feeling the need to urinate without infection suggests a few things, including an overactive bladder or pelvic muscle dysfunction that can be triggered by recurrent UTIs in young women. If you've had these symptoms for a while, ask your GP about being referred for more tests, such as urine flow studies. Good luck! ...Read more

With all std tests clear and 2wks doxycycline my testicles part left still painful with back pain. Tip of penis also in pain. Is it epidymititis?

With all std tests clear and 2wks doxycycline my testicles part left still painful with back pain. Tip of penis also in pain. Is it epidymititis?

Not epididymitis: Infectioius epididymitis almost always involves only one testicle, with marked swelling and tenderness. And the only STDs that cause it are gonorrhea and chlamydia, so your negative tests rule it out. Pain in both testicles without swelling, and/or pain referred to tip of penis usually means chronic pelvic pain syndrome, similar to non-bacterial prostatitis.
