I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

Soon, maybe: It is very unlikely that Chlamydia or Gonorrhea would cause dysuria, so this might be a bladder (urinary tract) infection. There are other possibilities, none of which can be properly evaluated without an exam. IF it is a bladder infection and IF it is sensitive to azithromycin then you should be feeling better. ...Read more

Sometimes I bleed after sex? I tested negative for chlamydia trich, and gonorrhea, what could it be from? Also, I get yellowish discharge sometimes

Sometimes I bleed after sex? I tested negative for chlamydia trich, and gonorrhea, what could it be from? Also, I get yellowish discharge sometimes

See your doctor: Were you examined by a doctor when tested for STDs? If so, what did she say about the bleeding? If you arranged testing yourself, the test results probably are valid, but yellow discharge still suggests infection of some kind. Bleeding after sex can be a cervix problem, like cervicitis, and also STDs -- which testing sometimes misses. See or return to your doctor for further evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm going for my first pap and I would like to be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea, does the pap test this as well?

Yes it can be done: Pap test does not normally test for stds except for hpv virus as it is a screening test for cervical cancer.
But you can ask the doctors who are doing the pap test to check you for chlamydia and gonorrhea and the reason you want to be tested. ...Read more

Does abnormal pap always result in HPV if chlamydia and gonorrhea came back neg?

Does abnormal pap always result in HPV if chlamydia and gonorrhea came back neg?

Abnormal pap smear: Most abnormal pap smears are due to HPV, even if HPV itself doesn't show up on testing. There are exceptions, but only a minority are not from HPV. Whether other STDs like chlamydia or gonorrhea are present makes no difference. If you have had an abnormal pap smear, discuss it with your doctor and follow her advice about further testing, follow-up, etc. Good luck! ...Read more

Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid? Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative.

Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative.

Probably not, but...: Prostatitis isn't an STD, and with negative gonorrhea and chlamydia, probably no PID risk for your wife. However, some docs mistakenly diagnose nongonococcal urethritis (an STD) as prostatitis. If you've had abnormal discharge from your penis, it's probably NGU, not prostatitis. If so, and if you had sex w/ your wife after the source of your infection, your wife could be at risk & needs treatment. ...Read more

I had a swab STD (chlamydia and gonorrhea) test one week after possible exposure that came back negative. Was this accurate or should i retest?

Tested how?: Was the test culture or DNA test. DNA test is more reliable. If you are concerned about STD, you should discuss with your doctor about getting tested for other STDs also.

Is prostatitis a std? Can you pass that during intercourse?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea negative.

What else cause prostatitis? After sex wife is complaining of on and off pelvic and abdominal pain.

Prostatitis: This can be bacterial, or non-infectious, or due to organisms other than bacteria. It is not generally thought of as an STD but certainly some microorganisms may wind up in the prostate after being acquired sexually. It is not likely that you transmitted this to your wife and is responsible for her symptoms but she does need to be evaluated. Best wishes. ...Read more

What prostatitis infection after hand job with oil? Chlamydia and gonorrhea neg. Doxy, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) z pack, no help. Flagyl helped little. What do I do?

What prostatitis infection after hand job with oil?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea neg.

Doxy, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) z pack, no help. Flagyl helped little.

What do I do?

Doubt prostatitis: No STD or any infection that might cause prostatitis is possible from such contact. I'm guessing your symptoms are some combination of urinary urgency, bladder discomfort, and/or testicular or low abdominal pain. Most men with such symptoms have genitally focused anxiety--pain from pevlic muscle tension not prostate. That all the antibiotics didn't help is very strong evidence against infection. ...Read more

In treating chlamydia and gonorrhea is it okay to take the cefixime one day and then azythromicin the next or does it need to be taken the same time?

In treating chlamydia and gonorrhea is it okay to take the cefixime one day and then azythromicin the next or does it need to be taken the same time?

Best together but...: ...cefixime is no longer recommended as the first choice for gonorrhea. It should be ceftriaxone (injection) plus azithromycin. Discuss with the doctor or clinic treating you. The drugs best taken together, although probably will work fine if taken 12-24 hours apart. Definitely no longer than that. But why not just do it right? They are well tolerated together, with no increased side effects. ...Read more

Kindly explain about infection like chlamydia and gonorrhea? Is this generated by anal sex? We should avoid anal sex or not?

STDs: These are sexually transmitted diseases which have no relationship necessarily to the route of sexual entry. They can both be transmitted vaginally and potentially anally. Do recommend that if you are sexually active you should protect yourself at all times until certain that you and your partner are both free of disease and monogamous. And if you figure out how to guarantee this, let us know. ...Read more

Pain in urethra. Waiting on chlamydia and gonorrhea tests, while taking doxycycline. But now noticing purplish bumps just inside tip of penis. Normal?

Get examined: "Purplish bumps" may not be abnormal, maybe just blood vessels, looking more prominent because of inflammation from gonorrhea or chlamydia. But genital herpes or warts might be possible as well. Presumably you saw a doctor, right? If not (e.g. if you arranged your own testing through a lab or on line), of if your doctor didn't examine you closely, return to the office right away. Good luck! ...Read more

No: Current cdc recommendations for gonorrhea and chlmydia are a single dose of Ceftriaxone 250 mg (shot) and a single dose of Azithromycin 1g (by mouth). Instead of Azithromycin you could do Doxycycline 100 mg by mouth twice a day for 7 days. Treatment for pelvic inflammatory disease (more severe infection in females) cannot be done in a single dose. ...Read more
