Hi doc wondering why do I have greenish discharge but I do not have chlamydia, gonorrhoea or mycoplasma what is the cause of green vaginal discharge?

Hi doc wondering why do I have greenish discharge but I do not have chlamydia, gonorrhoea or mycoplasma what is the cause of green vaginal discharge?

Infection? Trich?: Colored vaginal discharge usually indicates infection. You don't mention trichomonas, which might be possible. Trich has been almost eliminated in urban Australia, so I would expect a test to be negative. Still, it should be checked by PCR test. Consider consultation at the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre. Australia's SHCs are the world's best such clinics, and MSHC is the best of the best. ...Read more

Does anyone consider bacteria chlamydia pneumoniae and mycoplasma when treating asthma patients?  Do you know of a doc in the nyc area?  Thanks

Using macrolide antibiotics for patients with bronchiectasis or airway inflammation that is not responsive to inhaled corticosteroids is (but likely for the anti-inflammatory properties of these drugs). Don't have a ny area reference. ...Read more

Mild burn tip of penis after peeing. Chlamydia-GC, Urea/Mycoplasma, Urine culture tests clean. Ciproflox didn't help. Symptoms started after oral sex.

Mild burn tip of penis after peeing. Chlamydia-GC, Urea/Mycoplasma, Urine culture tests clean. Ciproflox didn't help. Symptoms started after oral sex.

Not an STD: Without urethral discharge, the chance of any STD is very low. STDs rarely cause such burning etc without discharge. Oral sex is particularly low risk, and virtually zero risk for chlamydia or mycoplasma. Any STD you might have had would have shown up with testing, and that it continued despite ciprofloxacin is additional evidence against infection. Almost certainly nothing serious. Maybe anxiety? ...Read more
