Ciprofloxacin std

Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin std


Avatar_f_tn Perhaps this is not the right venue, as I'm certain I don't have an STD because there was no encounter. However, I am showing signs of urethritis. I won't get into specifics, but likely due to introducing old masturbation toys. Cipro is not recommended, I believe due to it's ineffectiveness against other STD's. If the NGU is not from and STD, would the drug be effective?
Avatar_f_tn The doctor then gave me ciprofloxacin antibiotic.
Avatar_m_tn I took ciprofloxacin (cipro) and developed what appeared to be a sun burn or chemical burn on the head and one side of my penis (upper right side). I had a bad cough with yellowish phlegm so the pharmacy gave me ciproloxacin pills and recommended I take 2 per day. Not 30 minutes after the first pill I felt a tingling sensation on the head of my penis. Once scratched (abnormally good sensation) the "itch" went away for some 5 or 10 minutes.
Avatar_m_tn I go i the local GUM and without analysis they say that this is gonorrhea. I started with ciprofloxacin for 3 days, but the symptoms don`t go away. After that i return in my home contry and i make a consultation with my urologist and take a sprem for analysis. That was last friday. today i received the results - a nave S.agalactia and Enterococcus faecalis. My questions are follow: 1). Is this have any relation with my last sex exposure? 2). Is this a STD 3).
Avatar_n_tn Hello I'm wondering when it's safe to resume exercise after using the antibiotic ciprofloxacin. I do intense cardio (trail-running or versa-climber), and lift about three times per week, alternating days with sunday off. I'm in pretty good physical condition with the exception of a bulging L5-S1 disc and occasional sciatica on my right side.
Avatar_n_tn The painful urination is a potential concern, but none of your other symptoms is likely to be due to an STD. Even that symptom came on a bit early. Although gonorrhea can cause symptoms as soon as 48 hours after exposure, 3+ days is more common; and chlamydia and NGU, the only other two possibilities, take 7-10 days or more. And if it were any of those things, likely you would have noticed abnormal discharge of pus or mucus from your penis.
Avatar_m_tn If these symptoms persist you may wish to discuss them with your doctor, looking for other causes. The dose of ciprofloxacin and clarithromycin you mention are too low to reliable cure gonorrhea or chlamydia but they are high enough to confuse further testing. Please do not take antibiotics unless you know what is being treated.

Avatar_n_tn After doing lots of research it points to B6-B12 deficiencies. I had an full panel std 2-1/2 weeks after the incident which came back negative. Current symptoms are weak feeling, sensitive to light, depression feeling. Please help is this related to any STD? Why didn't my sensitivity to light improve it has now been 45 days. Why am i not getting better, i have been eating healthy? Should i have more testing done? Does this sound like anemia? If so what disease caused it?
Avatar_n_tn Std related discharge is more constant than this. Did you and your gf have full std testing before starting to have sex?
Avatar_m_tn Well if the medication did anything it might have started to cure a STD but you probably would still test positive if you had a STD.
Avatar_m_tn I am on amoxicillin + Ciprofloxacin from last 8 days now (for bacterial diagnosed on my penis) . Now, I want to re-test for all STD's . Can anyone please help me to let me know which tests will be effected as I am on antibiotics from 8 days and when should I get re-test if any STD effected by this medicine. I want to test for CBC, HIV, HSV1,2, HEPATITIS A,B,C, SYPHILIS, CHLAMYDIA, GONNORHEA. Or any other std test if I should have ?
Avatar_m_tn I came back to the urologist and showed him the results and he perscribed Cifran - ciprofloxacin. I took that for 10 days as perscribed. During the treatment my pain during urinating almost disappeared, appearing only rarely, but my throat stayed sore. Now 6 and 1/2 weeks post exposure I still have this weak pain while urinating and still sore throat for like now 3-4 weeks. I tested for HIV yesterday and it was negative.
Avatar_m_tn It would then go away. One teste seemed inflamed and swollen. Yesterday 8-7, I began ciprofloxacin... Bottom it possible she had throat gonnorhea and I got it ?

Avatar_n_tn But there is no way of knowing this for sure without asking the doctor himself. I'm not psychic. Ciprofloxacin is primarily used for the treatment of various infections & anthrax. As far as STD's are concerned, it has been implemented in the treatment of chancroid & gonorrhea. It has, however, recently proven to be useless in the treatment of chlamydia. The symptom you described (i.e. milky discharge) sounds a lot like chlamydia.
Avatar_n_tn i was with someone who i now found out has a questionable sexual history - he did not appear sick - i called my doctor and she ordered ciprofloxacin which is making me very sick - can i use zithromax instead also should i be tested and for what and how is it done - i have a slight discharge (white) but no other symptoms - i am past menopause if it matters - please help - this is the first time i have done this and i am freaking out!
Avatar_m_tn I've masturbated a few times after in december, the first couple times it didn't hurt, but around the 3rd time I felt burning after I ejaculated. I took a ciprofloxacin my friend had just in case and it felt normal again when I urinated but now I have slight discharge and it still burns after I ejaculate. Haven't been to the doctor yet.
Avatar_n_tn Welcome to the STD forum. I'll try to help. Either you are confused about terminology, or your doctor is, or you didn't understand his advice. The term UTI usually means infection with non-sexually transmitted bacteria. It is very RARE in young men, not common. Most often, an apparent UTI is actually urethritis -- either nongonococcal urethritis or gonorrhea. Technically these are UTIs, but that terminology normally is not used. What was the nature of your symptoms?
Avatar_m_tn Second, your doctor is not doing you any favors prescribing cipro for you if it was provided related to this exposure. Ciprofloxacin in a poor antibiotic for STD treatment with modest activity against gonorrhea and little meaningful activity against chlamydial infections (although chalmydia is extraordinarily rare following oral sex and should not be a concern). He should have at least tested, if not examined you. I hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn If it was due to a virus it will be self limited and if it was an to STD you are treated. HOWEVER, as you point out, if this was an STD introduced into your relationship (remember, either of you could have brought an infection into the relationship), you need to have your partner checked at a minimum and most experts would suggest that she, like you also be treated with azithromycin to make sure there is not an infection being passed back and forth between the two of you.
Avatar_m_tn I still had frequent urination and slight uncomfort so he gave me Ciprofloxacin as a 3 day medication. Why ? Is this affective against Trich or what? im just scarred. thanks. If Metrodinzole didnt work then am I out of luck?
Avatar_n_tn The fact that you had an earlier urinalysis which was clear makes the probability that your current burning is due to something acquired in your earlier encounter lower, particularly if the urinalysis was performed on a specimen collected at the beginning of urination and after at least an hour had passed since previous urination.
Avatar_m_tn If this test is negative, you do not have urethritis by any other the organisms you mention (most of which would have been treated by the azithromycin, ciprofloxacin and doxycycline that you have taken over the past few months. I see no need for further testing. A small amount of blood in the urine can be normal or it can be due to a problem such as kidney stones or other renal disease.
Avatar_m_tn The sensations continued and prompted me to visit a doc - she prescribed 500mg cipro 2x/day for 10 days and indicated it may be a UTI although a pee-cup check did not indicate an infection (would it have caught a bacterial STD?). I didn't share my CSW history, which I certainly regret now. Two days in to this treatment, I feel 95% better. I have a feeling you'll say my symptoms are a result of anxiety and that the likelihood I caught something is low.
Avatar_m_tn After the 7th day i went to a clinic and took a urine dip stick test and told me i have white cells so they gave me ciprofloxacin for 7 days. After i finished the course which at that time i was back home, i was still feeling symptoms, so i went to a GU clinic. The doctor took a swab test and found an inflammation in my urethra and he told me i have NSU and he gave me doxycycline for 7 days which my symptoms improved.
Avatar_m_tn I'm unclear about the timing of the tests, but it sounds you were treated with ciprofloxacin for the presumed UTI before you were tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia. That means those tests were invalid; you could have been infected and cured; or even if not cured, the antibiotic could have suppressed the test results. However, if the first test was done before you started taking cipro, you can be confident you didn't have either gonorrhea or chlamydia.
Avatar_n_tn In other words, just because it is the penis doesn't mean an STD. This forum doesn't speculate about causes other than STD. 6) Trichomoniasis does not cause such symptoms. Most likely nothing is wrong at all. At most you have a minor nonsexually transmitted skin condition and perhaps a prostate condition, neither of which significantly threatens your health. You show all the earmarks of obsession to a point that likely would benefit from professional mental health services.
Avatar_n_tn 1. Can symptoms of a STD start as early as 15 hours? 2. Can a STD include burning sensation but no discharge, and no intensification of burning while urinating? 3. Overall, do you think it may be a STD? If so, should I seek any treatment? I only have Cypro with me. Is it wise to start taking them and with what dose? 4. If these symptoms suggest an STD, should I assume that the condom broke and be concerned about HIV? 5.
