Will bactrim cure Chlamydia and Gonorrhea?

Will bactrim cure Chlamydia and Gonorrhea?

Not at all: If you use these for this you will just piss away the drug and it will do nothing but delay your getting proper treatment. If you are assuming this is what you have, be aware that there are at least a dozed disease that can pass through sexual contact. Some can be much worse than either chlamydia or gonorrhea. ...Read more

Does abnormal pap always result in HPV if chlamydia and gonorrhea came back neg?

Does abnormal pap always result in HPV if chlamydia and gonorrhea came back neg?

Abnormal pap smear: Most abnormal pap smears are due to HPV, even if HPV itself doesn't show up on testing. There are exceptions, but only a minority are not from HPV. Whether other STDs like chlamydia or gonorrhea are present makes no difference. If you have had an abnormal pap smear, discuss it with your doctor and follow her advice about further testing, follow-up, etc. Good luck! ...Read more

Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid? Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative.

Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative.

Probably not, but...: Prostatitis isn't an STD, and with negative gonorrhea and chlamydia, probably no PID risk for your wife. However, some docs mistakenly diagnose nongonococcal urethritis (an STD) as prostatitis. If you've had abnormal discharge from your penis, it's probably NGU, not prostatitis. If so, and if you had sex w/ your wife after the source of your infection, your wife could be at risk & needs treatment. ...Read more

Until : Until you see the doctor you can try some over the counter hemorrhoid medication. There are many products in your local pharmacy dedicated to hemorrhoid treatment. These include creams that you apply to the rectum, medicated pads that can be placed over the anus, and rectal suppositories that can be inserted into the rectum. I recommend one of the first two choices until you can see the doctor. Also, increase your fiber and water intake.
Take care. ...Read more

Kindly explain about infection like chlamydia and gonorrhea? Is this generated by anal sex? We should avoid anal sex or not?

STDs: These are sexually transmitted diseases which have no relationship necessarily to the route of sexual entry. They can both be transmitted vaginally and potentially anally. Do recommend that if you are sexually active you should protect yourself at all times until certain that you and your partner are both free of disease and monogamous. And if you figure out how to guarantee this, let us know. ...Read more

I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

Soon, maybe: It is very unlikely that Chlamydia or Gonorrhea would cause dysuria, so this might be a bladder (urinary tract) infection. There are other possibilities, none of which can be properly evaluated without an exam. IF it is a bladder infection and IF it is sensitive to azithromycin then you should be feeling better. ...Read more

Pain in urethra. Waiting on chlamydia and gonorrhea tests, while taking doxycycline. But now noticing purplish bumps just inside tip of penis. Normal?

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

Could a single dose of 1g azithromycin and 500mg ciprofloxacin be enough to treat chlamydia and gonorrhea infection?

No: Current cdc recommendations for gonorrhea and chlmydia are a single dose of Ceftriaxone 250 mg (shot) and a single dose of Azithromycin 1g (by mouth).

Treatment for pelvic inflammatory disease (more severe infection in females) cannot be done in a single dose. ...Read more
