The only way to know is to get checked, cultured and treated. Use condoms! Use condoms! Use condoms! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are the differences between chlamydia and gonorrhea symptoms and how can you guess which one you have before you decide to get tested?
Not too many: The two conditions can be remarkably similar. Gc usually presents with more pain and purulent discharge, but have seen the same thing with non-gonococcal urethritis, usually due to chlamydia. Guessing is nowhere as good as being diagnosed and treated appropriately. And would you believe you can have both simultaneously. ...Read more

Any touch on penis head including clothes causes major tingling. Tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia negative. Rapid premature ejaculation. Thoughts?
May be okay...: You're probably okay besides oversensitivity of glans penis which is understandably related with premature ejaculation (pe).

Dishcharge from urethra at tip of penis a week after being treated for gonorrhea and chlamydia with one dosage of 2000mg azithromycin.
Pain in urethra. Waiting on chlamydia and gonorrhea tests, while taking doxycycline. But now noticing purplish bumps just inside tip of penis. Normal?
Get examined: "Purplish bumps" may not be abnormal, maybe just blood vessels, looking more prominent because of inflammation from gonorrhea or chlamydia. But genital herpes or warts might be possible as well. Presumably you saw a doctor, right? If not (e.g. if you arranged your own testing through a lab or on line), of if your doctor didn't examine you closely, return to the office right away. Good luck! ...Read more
Has my antibiotic treatment for gonorrhea and chlamydia failed or is it something else? Treated twice after symptoms came back. Maybe prostatits or utheritis? Ball pain, penis ache, uthera pain.
What is the duration of Gonorrhea and Chlamydia treatment? Is this a 1 day single dose combi or a long term? I.e 1 or 2 weeks?
Depends: Gonorreah is treated with a single dose of antibiotics, usually an intramuscular injection of ceftriaxone (a penicillin derivative). Chlamydia takes longer to kill, but can is often treated with a single dose of azithromycin for convenience, which is an antibiotic that stays in the system for a long period of time ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No problem: This sort of thing used to be a problem, when gonorrhea and chlamydia were usually diagnosed by culure, i.e. growing the bacteria in the lab. Clotrimazole itself wouldn't do anything, but preservaties and other chemicals in the cream could be a problem. However, with modern testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea DNA, there probably is no problem at all. Your test results will be reliable. ...Read more

See answer: Unable to tell from your question where exactly the source of bleeding is from: urinary, vaginal, uterine (irregular menstrual). If not urinary or menstrual-related, vaginal bleeding/spotting would imply there is still some residual problem whether it be irritation, inflammation, or infection. If persists, should be re-examined to determine source and cause. ...Read more
Gonorrhea only: Oral sex is safe sex. Not completely risk free, but far less than vaginal or anal sex. It is low risk for all STDs, including gonorrhea; and virtually zero risk for some, including chlamydia. Oral chlamydia is uncommon and there have been no proved cases of oral to genital transmission. After a single oral sex exposure, STD testing is optional if no symptoms (discharge, penile sores) in 2-3 weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
