This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more

At times: Planned parenthood is a generalized substitute for gynecologic and general health care for women. Most of their efforts are in pelvic inflammatory disease, cancer detection and birth control. A few other areas of interest like pregnancy termination, a small percentage of their total efforts, have been a target of politically inspired demagogues. Female teen sexual health is addresed there. ...Read more
Oral sex. Tested 2 wks for std and ngu. clear. No discharge.Returned to clinic as tip of urethra irritated. swab= 7wbc=ngu. 1st ngu test wrong?
Maybe: Life is not exact. Tests are not perfect. Tests have false positives and false negatives... which is why their results must be interpreted in the context of a patient's symptoms, clinical situation, and risk factors. A positive result matching the symptoms is likely to be a valid result. A negative result matching the lack of symptoms is likely to be valid. Sometimes the unexpected happens in life ...Read more
Unlikely: No insurer or employer could afford to do this with that frequency, and there would not be much benefit to it. Ems and healthcare workers are usually tested only after a known exposure / event, which can be years in between if they are using proper safety precautions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I see urine resting at opening of meatus. Tested at clinic & doctor STD free. Precaution UTI meds given. Still see same. What could be wrong?
Probably, okay...: How long have you seen such? Have you hurt in voiding at all? Any urethral discharge? If just having dripping after voiding, called postvoid dribbling, do "urethral milking" x 2-5 times by "pressuring and swiping" urethra from the perineum (behind the sac) toward urethral opening until no more drip before sending penis into pants. That would help most & you do not have STD or UTI. More? Contact me ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
DX w/ bacterial orchitis.Took doxy,& rocephin (ceftriaxone).didn't help. can't take floroqinones(joints)or bactrim(allergic)Any other meds?Not std/ uti,was tested.
Distinct cash loss: For this doc. Done as a public service and have to deal with the dea office visits on top of it. No fun having three dea attorneys question you and treat you like a criminal for 2 hours. I can't speak for the pharmacies. Addicts are the least reliable when it comes to paying their bills, especially if they relapse. And no, there are no kick-backs as they are illegal in the us at least. ...Read more
Had discharge, doc tests for Gonorrhea & chlamydia. Both negative.Treated for both anyway. Dr said urethritis. Will azithromycin & cefTRIAXone stop it?
It may: This is standard one stop therapy for STD's whether testing is positive or may be falsely negative. There are other possibilities that may become apparent over time but this hits the ones that are treatable & easily passed to others. ...Read more
Recently found bill for gf with tests: trachomatis, neisseria, trichomonas, pathologist review, surepath pap. I think she's cheatin. R these routine?
Trust but clarify: These are routine tests. If you are paying out of pocket, it comes as a shock! ask your doctor to inform you about the reasons for these tests. If you know what the tests are for, you can decline what you think are not necessary. This will help you develop a trusting relationship with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm a girl,my 3yr partner was diagnosed w/ gardnerella vaginalis(not chronic).He's fine now,no STDs,they said I don't need to get tested.Is that ok?
Confusing...: I'd like to help, but Gardnerella is a normal bactera in the vagina. It doesn't infect men and there no is accurate way to diagnose it in men. I wonder if your partner has nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). It's an STD, even though standard STD tests (gonorrhea, chlamyida, etc) are negative. You and he should find a doctor who understands STDs and genital infections. Good luck! ...Read more
