I had ngu frm oral sex. No discharge. Chl and gon neg. Me and wife took doxy 1 wk and I took 1g aizthrmycin. Negative swab 3wks after. Wife at risk?

I had ngu frm oral sex. No discharge. Chl and gon neg. Me and wife took doxy 1 wk and I took 1g aizthrmycin. Negative swab 3wks after. Wife at risk?

Probably all is well: If no discharge, probably not NGU, for which discharge is the main symptom -- not painful urination, pelvic pain, etc without discharge. And NGU due to oral bacteria probably is harmless for partners. To be safe, it was OK to treat your wife, but likely unnecessary. In any case, at this point and with negative swab tests, you can safely assume no continuing infection and no danger to your wife. ...Read more

Can NGU also result from a yeast infection?

Can NGU also result from a yeast infection?

Unlikely: NGU rarely is caused by yeast. Are you the same person who asked about urethral discharge yesterday? This question suggests maybe a partner was diagnosed with yeast. However, other things cause similar symptoms and my guess is your partner has more than a yeast infection. You cannot safely assume yeast as the cause of NGU. You and your partner(s) need NGU treatment. ...Read more

Non chlamydial ngu from oral sex 4months ago.recent swab 18-6-15 <5wbc but still have symptoms. No discharge. doxy and 1g zpak taken. other Causes?

Non chlamydial ngu from oral sex 4months ago.recent swab 18-6-15 <5wbc but still have symptoms. No discharge. doxy and 1g zpak taken. other Causes?

No infection: Most people with such symptoms have no infection at all. A prostate problem sometimes may be responsible. See Wikipedia on "chronic pelvic pain syndrome" and see if it matches your symptoms. Problems like this are very common after NGU or worrisome sexual events, but there is no evidence that any harm ever results, either for affected men or their sex partners. Symptoms probably will fade w/ time. ...Read more

Is perineal ache a symptom of ngu? I had ngu 9 months ago but symptoms not gone dispite many antibiotics. All swabs since then negative. No ngu found

Not NGU: NGU causes urethral discharge, pain during urination (usually mild), often an itchiness at the penile tip, and sometimes redness or a little swelling of the urethral opening. It doesn't cause perineal aching, testicular pain, etc. These are typical symptoms of the chronic pelvic pain syndrome (sometimes called prostatitis, but probably not really). Google it; there's a very good Wikipedia article. ...Read more

Hi I m having penis discharge since 7 months I took many medicines,for NGU and gonnorhea,but discharge not going away ,all tests are normal ,please me?

Chronic urethritis: Such prolonged, persistent symptoms after multiple antibiotics suggest the possibility of Mycoplasma genitalium; ask doctor about trying moxifloxacin. Or a non STD prostate infection. Also ask about certain parasitic infections, especially schistosomiasis -- heretofore uncommon in Pakistan, but recently increasing. See an infection specialist and/or urologist. Good luck. ...Read more
