Urethra itches. Wet mount tested negative for STDs and yeast infection. Urinalysis tested negative for uti, what could it be? Help

Not sure but: Vaginal douching and drinking water with cranberry juice may help. Allergy to cotton underwear, sexual intercourse perhaps may have contributed to ur symptoms. Follow up with ur pcp or gyn if u don't feel better. Best wishes! http://health.Yahoo.Net/symptomsearch?Addterm=vaginal+itching;addterm=pain+in+urethra;addterm=vaginal-discharge. ...Read more

Yellow clumpy vaginal discharge sometimes clear, no odor, no itch, negative for c&s test, wet mount and pap test. What else can cause yellow discharge?

Yellow clumpy vaginal discharge sometimes clear, no odor, no itch, negative for c&s test, wet mount and pap test. What else can cause yellow discharge?

Treat for best guess: Diagnosis of vaginal discharge can be difficult. Yellow color suggests infection. Depending on exact tests done, some infections can be missed, e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas. Talk to your doctor about being retested. If available, include the new DNA test for trich, much more accurate than wet mount. It may be necessary to treat for the best guess, without proof of diagnosis. Good luck! ...Read more

Cervicitis tested negative for gonnerhea and chlamydia no bv no yeast. Positive white blood cells uncomfortable with burning itching thin discharge?

How? Work with your gyn-doc. Together, a glimpse of what... ...Read more

Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.

Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.

Normal bacteria: It's normal to have U. urealyticum in the genital tract. Once in a while it causes nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) in men, but generally harmless both in men and their sex partners. UU doesn't show up on routine tests; testing is rarely needed except in special circumstances. So nothing to worry about, especially if no symptoms. If in doubt, see an STD or infectious diseases expert. Good luck! ...Read more

Had foul watery vaginal discharge 6mnths.Ct scan fluid in pod, vaginal swab test culture-e.Faecalis found.Bleeds while urine little.Serious?

Unlikely serious: It would be important to evaluate your urinary symptoms with all of this. Vaginal swabs tend to pick up many types of bacteria so this information is not always particularly helpful. It sounds from your note that the discharge has stopped and then the question would be what did you change that resolved the discharge. ...Read more

Can UTI cause yellow discharge? I've yellow vaginal discharge on daily basis. Went for c&s test, no pathogen seen. Negative for wet mount.

Probably not UTI: UTI doesn't cause vaginal discharge. Probably you were tested for STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) and negative wet mount suggests you were checked for vaginal infections bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, and yeast. But that test messes almost half of trichomonas infections; ask doc about the newly available DNA test for trich, a far better test. Also ask about cervicitis and maybe retest for STDs. ...Read more
