How can I treat prostatitis that's caused by chlamydia?

How can I treat prostatitis that's caused by chlamydia?

No such thing: Chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis. It causes nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), which can be misdiagnosed as prostatitis. Genital chlamydial infections are best treated with a single dose of azithromycin, 1 gram; or with doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for a week. ...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

If prostatitis is caused by chlamydia or an STD and u test neg for the STD in a urine sample but got prostatitis from oral sex. Is it contagious?

Prostatitis vs STD: Prostatitis is not an STD and not sexually acquired. Chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis. However, prostatitis has overlapping symptoms with some STDs, especially nongonococcal urethritis (NGU); it can be hard to tell them apart. NGU can be acquired oral to penis but chlamydia only rarely. Prostatitis is not contagious for sex partners. The risk to partners from non-chlamydial NGU is uncertain. ...Read more

Is prostatitis an 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

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

Only exposure hand job with lotion.
Now have symptoms of prostatitis.

Can I pass this to my wife? Chlamydia and gc neg. Is this trich?

No STD, prostatitis: The partly duplicates your other question, which didn't provide these details. There is no way you caught gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, or prostatitis from a hand job. Apparent prostatitis symptoms in this situation almost always are just anxiety over a regretted sexual decision, causing pelvic pain. You caught nothing from this event that can harm your wife. Period, full stop, no exceptions. ...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

I had chlamydia 2 times not sure how long but treated is it always the cause for infertility?

Concerning: Chlamydia is a very common cause of infertility, specifically due to tubal damage and pelvic scar tissue. Your partner needs to be treated as well. If not he will just give it back to you. Wearing condoms every time for intercourse is highly recommended. In the future if you have any trouble conceiving, you should have a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) test to check the status of your tubes. ...Read more

My boyfriend was diagnosed with chlamydia, and treated. Through our experience, i think he is infertile. What could the causes be?

Infertility?: If you are saying you had sex with your boyfriend and did not conceive, perhaps you should have him have a semen analysis. That test evaluates certain characteristics of a male's semen and the sperm contained therein. If it shows he no abnormality with his sperm and you cannot conceive with him, perhaps the problem is not his and you should consider other alternatives. ...Read more

I had chlamydia twice but was treated right away both times, will that cause any damage or make it harder to become pregnant when I'm ready?

Maybe,maybe not: You may have had little effect or lots.Early treatment always improves your ability to reduce damage.The germ can travel up into your fallopian tubes and cause inflammation & scaring that might prevent a natural pregnancy or place you at risk of a tubal pregnancy in the future. Time will tell. Discuss it with your obgyn for specific risks based on your own exam. ...Read more

If I put a condum on to get oral sex and I was being treated for chlamydia is it possible for me to reinfect myself cause I still have a discharge ?

If I put a condum on to get oral sex and I was being treated for chlamydia is it possible for me to reinfect myself cause I still have a discharge ?

Spit in the face: Well, thank you for using that condom! I'd never spit in the face of good sense. However, keep in mind that stuff can leak around the other end-- but for your partner to get it that way is probably a long shot.As for you,if you are still being treated as directed then those secretions have been treated as well.Let's hope you're taking the right antibiotic; like, is it just Chlamydia down there??? ...Read more
