What STDs do doctors test for through urinalysis??

What STDs do doctors test for through urinalysis??

None: A urinalysis on its own does not test for STDs. Special cultures need to be ordered. In the case of urine assays, gonorrhea and chlamydia screening and T mycoplasma/ureaplasma testing can be done. Other STDs require blood tests. If you are concerned about possible exposure, take to your doctor right away about appropriate testing. ...Read more

Hi I just found out I contracted an std. My doctor prescribed me Azithromicyn 500, they are too big to swallow, am I able to crush them up with food?

Hi I just found out I contracted an std. My doctor prescribed me Azithromicyn 500, they are too big to swallow, am I able to crush them up with food?

Normally: no, because it may disrupt the distribution. Some people do do it however. For the best effect taking it whole is better. Try putting it lenghtwise as far back as you can without gagging and drink lots and lots of water. If this is still bothersome, they do have it in liquid form. And the next time, please use protection. ...Read more

I have strep troat, white spots on my tonsils, and i'm missing pacthes on my tongue, what's wrong with me? Do I have an STD the doctor said i'm ok.

I have strep troat,  white spots on my tonsils, and i'm missing pacthes on my tongue,  what's wrong with me?  Do I have an STD the doctor said i'm ok.

Dont panic: The white spots on your tonsils are consistent with you strep throat which is a bacterial infection of your throat. The patches on your tongue are most likely benign unless they are ulcerated and bleeding. If you fear an std or have reason to believe you have contracted one, you can always get tested. Trust you doctor and recover from the strep. ...Read more

Right inside of my vagina hole burns and is really sore right inside and also under both of my flaps are really red and they burn to, I have no std's, 1 doctor says its vulvodynia and 1 says its vulvitis so im confused which one is right :( please tell me

Right inside of my vagina hole burns and is really sore right inside and also under both of my flaps are really red and they burn to, I have no std's, 1 doctor says its vulvodynia and 1 says its vulvitis so im confused which one is right :( please tell me

Vulvitis: When the area of the vulva is red adn painful, it's vulvitis. Vulvodynia is when it hurts to touch it, but there isn't anything infectious provoking it. Obviously, there's soemthing going on, yeast comes first to mind, with your vulva if it's that red and irritated. Bottom line, you likely need treatment. Even if no perceptible infection, you could benefit from a medication to help with pain. ...Read more

Right inside of my vagina hole where you would put a penis that hole burns and is really sore right inside and also under both of my flaps are really red and they burn to, I have no std's, 1 doctor says its vulvodynia and 1 says its vulvitis so im confuse

Vulvodynia: If there is no infection and you have some redness and pain at time of penetration you most likely have provoked vulvodynia. Try avoiding fabric fofteners, bleach, use avenoo or neutrogena soap for your prsonal hygiene, shower not bathe, use dreft detergents, no femenine perfumes, no douche, use white all cotton underwear and white nonscented toilet paper. After urination poor water and apply oil. ...Read more

Hi I was recently diagnosed with and STD and my doctor prescribed me azithromycin. I took it yesterday but was wondering if alcohol would affect it?

Hi I was recently diagnosed with and STD and my doctor prescribed me azithromycin. I took it yesterday but was wondering if alcohol would affect it?

Alcohol: interacts very strongly with metronidazole (Flagyl) that is used to treat vaginal infections and/or some STD. This is not as much as a concern with azithromycin. Azithromycin and alcohol both require the liver to work harder, and taking them in combination is not recommended. Protect yourself from getting STDs in the future by consistent use of condoms. Some STDs are so easily treated. ...Read more

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?

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 more
