It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...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.
Here are some ...: Clinically, the antibiotic treatment you've received should cover all common PID-related bacteria.

DX with ngu from oral sex.All std tests neg. doxycycline and aizthrimycin did not cure. Worried that it won't go away. Had for 3 months. swab <5wbc
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
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
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
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
