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

Positive semen PCR chlamydia. Mainly urethra tip discomfort 24/7. Rx? Is this chronic bacterial prostatitis? Unprotected oral unknown partner. plzhelp

Chronic pelvic pain?: Chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis, and is rarely acquired by oral sex -- maybe false positive test? Maybe chronic pelvic pain syndrome, or genital anxiety, not true prostatitis. You've been asking repeated questions. Follow your doctor's advice, or see an infectious diseases specialist or urologist. Your situation is too complex for a forum like this; don't expect any further advice. Good luck. ...Read more

Are non penetrative sex practices risky for contracting leprosy? E.g.: female (active) to male (passive) masturbation without condom, fellatio.

Are non penetrative sex practices risky for contracting leprosy?  E.g.: female (active) to male (passive) masturbation without condom, fellatio.

Maybe, but low risk: Any personal contact (kissing, skin contact, etc) can transmit leprosy. This includes sex, both penetrating and non penetrating, but probably no more often than other contact. Fortunately, leprosy is quite hard to transmit. Most household and sexual contacts (e.g. spouses) never catch it themselves. I suggest you discuss it with the doctor or clinic caring for the person with leprosy. ...Read more

1 sex partner.After initial sexual encounter fishy rectal odor, lip tingling. Tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia= negative?Fishy odor due to herpes?

Is ic a sexually transmitted disease/infection (std/sti)? 

No: Interstitial cystitis is an inflammatory condition wherein the bladder is deficient in a 'slime layer' that protects the lining from irritating substances in the urine. Almost like a 'diaper rash' on the inside. It can be managed and treated with dietary changes, oral medications and sometimes infusions of medicine into the bladder. ...Read more
