+ gonorrhoeae DNA amplification test, but, neg. Amp RNA test(source urine). Do they have gonorrhoeae? Is one test more reliable?

+ gonorrhoeae  DNA amplification  test,  but, neg. Amp RNA test(source urine). Do they have gonorrhoeae? Is one test more reliable?

Complicated: Although these tests are very sensitive there are false positive results because of the potential presence of other benign species of neisseria. If you had to compare the two it would be without much relevant data. Bacterial culture will provide both a definitive diagnosis and allow determination of antibiotic sensitivities. ...Read more

Would a c trachomatis amp probe or a n gonorrhoeae amp probe detect trichomonasis in a male?

No: No, but it would not detect in a female either. Trichomonas vaginalis is a parasite. Chlamydia trachomatis and neisseria gonorrhea are bacteria. The proper test for trichomoniasis is a wet prep. ...Read more

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more

Ok the HIV RNA PCR will detect both hiv1and2 but what about HIV DNA pcr?would this detect both types even if it was designed for hiv1 only?

Ok the HIV RNA PCR will detect both hiv1and2 but what about HIV DNA pcr?would this detect both types even if it was designed for hiv1 only?

HIV: This is an RNA virus. It is called a retrovirus because when it enters a cell to create infection it is converted to DNA and intercalated into the cell's nuclear structure. The tests do not measure HIV DNA. You seem anxious over the possibility that you have HIV infection and you might want to chat with a therapist and stop having unprotected sex. ...Read more

Had a thinprep image pap done with chlamydia and gonorrea testing, all those normal. Does the pap detect bv, candida, and trichomonas? Been itchy

Had a thinprep image pap done with chlamydia and gonorrea testing, all those normal. Does the pap detect bv, candida, and trichomonas? Been itchy

Pap testing ; STIs: Sometimes bv, candida and trichamonas can be detected on a pap smear but not always. There are other more reliable testing methods for these other infectious conditions. If you've been itchy, it's fine to try an over the counter medication for yeast first. But if symptoms continue, you'll need an exam to figure out best treatment. ...Read more

Negative urine PCR. Positive chlamydia semen PCR. Any difference regarding treatment? Can infection spread to other parts? (i.e my left stomach hurts)

Negative urine PCR. Positive chlamydia semen PCR. Any difference regarding treatment? Can infection spread to other parts? (i.e my left stomach hurts)

Tissue specific: Your chlamydia likes to live in certain tissues, like the linings of your urinary tract. It is not going to go from there into your stomach(tissue is different).You can feel bad when you are sick, as a non-specific symptom, and the common treatment for chlamydia, azithromycin can cause GI upset or cramping in some patients. ...Read more
