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?

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

In treating chlamydia and gonorrhea is it okay to take the cefixime one day and then azythromicin the next or does it need to be taken the same time?

In treating chlamydia and gonorrhea is it okay to take the cefixime one day and then azythromicin the next or does it need to be taken the same time?

Best together but...: ...cefixime is no longer recommended as the first choice for gonorrhea. It should be ceftriaxone (injection) plus azithromycin. Discuss with the doctor or clinic treating you. The drugs best taken together, although probably will work fine if taken 12-24 hours apart. Definitely no longer than that. But why not just do it right? They are well tolerated together, with no increased side effects. ...Read more

How to relieve rectal chlamydia symptoms until test results come back? I went to my gyno yesterday and since I am with a new partner they suggested I get a chlamydia and gonorrhea test. The only thing my doctor was concerned about was that one morning aft

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

If you've been tested for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhea can you still have herpes or warts?

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). Instead of Azithromycin you could do Doxycycline 100 mg by mouth twice a day for 7 days. Treatment for pelvic inflammatory disease (more severe infection in females) cannot be done in a single dose. ...Read more

Is prostatitis a std? Can you pass that during intercourse?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea negative.

What else cause prostatitis? After sex wife is complaining of on and off pelvic and abdominal pain.

Prostatitis: This can be bacterial, or non-infectious, or due to organisms other than bacteria. It is not generally thought of as an STD but certainly some microorganisms may wind up in the prostate after being acquired sexually. It is not likely that you transmitted this to your wife and is responsible for her symptoms but she does need to be evaluated. Best wishes. ...Read more

What prostatitis infection after hand job with oil?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea neg.

Doxy, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) z pack, no help. Flagyl helped little.

What do I do?

Doubt prostatitis: No STD or any infection that might cause prostatitis is possible from such contact. I'm guessing your symptoms are some combination of urinary urgency, bladder discomfort, and/or testicular or low abdominal pain. Most men with such symptoms have genitally focused anxiety--pain from pevlic muscle tension not prostate. That all the antibiotics didn't help is very strong evidence against infection. ...Read more

I was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea. How long does it take for the treatments to work?

7-10 days: The standard treatments clear the infection in 1-2 days, but symptoms take longer to clear up. Discharge or painful urination usuallly start improving within 2 days, can take 7-10 days to be gone entirely. If things aren't clearing up this soon, return to your doctor to be rechecked. Don't resume sex until at least 7 days have passed, all symptoms are gone, and your partner(s) have been treated. ...Read more
