That is exactly what I did. I ended up having sex 4 to 5 hours after I took my last dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> on day 7. Did I put my partner at risk by having sex so soon after treatment? Also, I took 13 out of the 14 pills. (I choked one of the pills back up and spit it out). Would that have an impact on the meds efficacy?
I, however, am a worrier when it comes to sexual health, and took myself along to a local GUM clinic, 3 days after the encounter, was tested, (came back negative) and also received two tablets (I am unsure what these were) to treat gonorrhea just in case, and also 7 days worth of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span>. My first question would be is 3 days long enough to get an accurate reading? And also, if I did indeed briefly have these two infections, would I now be clear of them?
The doctor treated treated me for everything that day because it would be several days before the results were in. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> 100mg for 7 days in case it was chlamydia or gonorrhea and a shot in the rump of something in case it was syphilis. I did tell her that I had taken an antibiotic and she acknowledged it. took 7 days to get the results back and everything was negative! YEAH!!!! I felt fine. 6 days after I finished the script symptoms started returning.
No Problems but regular Std check a few weeks later reveals NSU, check was done via swab into urethra. Treatment high dose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> and two other anti biotics that I can't remember the name, pain in urethra develops and get worse and worse as time progresses and pain in head of penis. During this time and after I abstain from sex and masturbation. I notice that pain is particularly bad after long car journeys.
(cystitis = bladder infection) was a common term for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span> in newly sexually active women. It's not an STD, i.e. your partner isn't catching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span> bacteria from you. Instead, she is colonized in her vagina with uti bacteria, which are "massaged" into the urinary opening during sex. Other things can influence it. For example, some strains of E. coli (which we all have) are more prone to colonize the vagina and cause uti than other strains.
Or a yeast infection that's been persisting so it needs more than one dose of fluconazole to be cured? My derm said accutane kind of prohibits yeast from growing, so I'm thinking it could have stayed very mild while on the accutane & gotten worse when off the accutane because of that. Any thoughts?
He then prescribed me 250mg of azithromycine once daily for 6 days, as well as rifamycine for my eyes (4 times daily for 7 days). I am not happy with his diagnosis. A doctor friend advised me to take double the dose for 3 days for gonorrhea. Do I take this prescribed dose (not effective for possible gonorrhea) or do I wait and see another specialist? Very confused.
I have had utis before, so I figured this was what it was, and went to my doctor for antibiotics. However, I was told that there was no sign of any bacteria in my urine sample, even after culturing it (along with no STDs, no pregnancy, and all those other commonly assumed causes when a 22 year old sexually active female is involved in just about anything in the medical community).
The urine culture will tell what's going on. If it is positive for one of the bacteria that typically cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span>, that's the diagnosis. If negative, it will support NGU as the correct diagnosis. If you have a uti, sulfa-trimethoprim (Bactrim and other trade names) is a good choice for treatment -- so in that respect your doctor's advice was fine. If it's NGU, then azithromycin or doxycycline.
Or if he used a condom that was too small this can also cause that type of symptom (but I have never had that issue for 5 days) Sometimes after a good round of oral play guys can have an episode of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span> do to bacteria within the females saliva. No the bacteria does not necessarily have to be gonera (SP) or chlamydia to cause a uti. Sadly if it is gonerea or chlamydia, that means he has been exposed to it through other sources.
Your doc might or might not have done that. In any case, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> is one of the drugs of choice for NGU, so if that's what you have (which I tend to doubt), you will be adequately treated for it. So this really isn't a worry at this point.
constant white, sour smelling vaginal discharge, pain with insertion. Back in January of 09, I had a severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span>. It was the first one I ever had and I took about a week to get to the doctor because I didn't know what was going on . He said my urine was the worst he had seen in a while. Anyway, all they did was dip a test strip into the urine. I was put on Cipro for 5-7 days. I went back at the end of the 7 days because I had developed a vaginal discharge.
2 (Blood test) o Tested negative for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span>/NGU based on a White Blood Cell count of 1 (Swab) o Diagnosed with epididymitis in right testicle June 25 Pain in bladder, ex-ray taken of pelvis, a white area was noted on left area of bladder, considered un-remarkable by the physician. Given 2 more weeks supply of erythromycin, instructed to take them if needed.
That would normally be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> 100 mg twice daily for 7 days, plus a single 2 gram dose of metronidazole (Flagyl) or tinidazole (Tindamax). As for "still can’t seem rule out HSV-2 given the risk I took", you misunderstand the risks. Herpes remains unlikely. You had only a single exposure to an infected person.
I visited an urgent care center a month ago, and was diagnosed with Bacterial Vaginitis & a uti. I was given Macrobid & Clindamycin. Finished treatment with those, and I still had some burning after urination, not really during, but afterwards. It was a very uncomfortable heated sensation that I couldn't really pinpoint. So I saw my regular doctor, not an ob/gyn.
However as i am still feeling symptoms (intermittent clear penile discharge and penile tenderness), my GP prescribed me a 1g dose of azithromycin and a 2g dose of Tinidazole. This on top of the antibiotics that i have previously taken such as doxycycline, keflex and noroxin should well and truly cover any undiagnosed infection. Is that correct? I did have a positive ANA test (Titre: 640 Homogenous) on two occasions so i do wonder if its a autoimmune problem causing my symptoms.
They tested me for everything to include HSV and they gave me a oral dose azithromycin 1G and a shot of ceftriaxone 250mg just for peace of mind if it was bacterial. Within 7 days of exposure I had developed a very small open sore where the redness had been and it healed within a week, I showed the doc and she said it looked bacterial but did not take a swab and to let the antibiotics I took work their magic. Even though there was no sore my penis skin still felt very irritated constantly.
By day 18, the pain still seemed to be subsiding, but for the first time, there were a couple of drops of blood that came out after I urinated. I went back to the doctor. This time they took a urine sample and ran a WBC and nitrite count. Both counts were normal. They sent it to the lab just for a general bacterial culture. This too came back negative. They prescribed me 10 days of Cipro (500 mg twice a day). The next day, the symptoms had gone down tremendously.
So to make a long story short, I've been on Doxycline for a month and 2 days now, and much of the pain has left.. for example, main lingering pain in testicles and penis, groin and fulness in prostrate but i have since had a few uti's (mild), burning while urination, mainly at night and early mornings, and slight achy pain in testicles and penis only after masterbating.
these include Azithromycin 1 g single dose, or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> 100 mg twice daily for 7 days, or levofloxacin 500 mg once daily for 7 days, etc. All these regimens are administered orally. As Chlamydia is a STD, it requires treatment of both partners for effective eradication of infection. Abstinence from sexual intercourse is advised during the course of treatment, but condoms should be used if the infected individuals intend to have sexual intercourse. Do keep us posted on your doubts.
2 (Blood test) o Tested negative for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span>/NGU based on a White Blood Cell count of 1 (Urethral Swab Test) o Diagnosed with epididymitis in right testicle June 25 Pain in bladder, ex-ray taken of pelvis, a white area was noted on left area of bladder, considered un-remarkable by the physician. Given 2 more weeks supply of erythromycin, instructed to take them if needed.
It seemed to help a little and I didn't have to use the bathroom as often while I was on it. I'm not sure how much of this was the medicine and how much of it was me wishing for it to work. I couldn't finish all 14 days because of the havoc it was reeking on my digestive system. I'm going to have my urine tested again today since my symptoms got much worse over the weekend. I've had to get up 4x a night for two days now and am having mild burning lower back pain as well.
The following Monday I went to my physician was tested for uti, Chlamydia and gonnorrhea. All three came back negative. I took a dose of ciproflaxcin and 10 days of twice daily doxycycline. During the 10 days the pain would diminish while the antibiotics where in effect but an hour too two hours before my next dose the pain would return. Now that I have finished my regiment of antibiotics the pain has returned. Also more I never had any discharge or swelling.
Anyways less then a wk later i developed a uti frequent urination burning whilst urinating no discharge. Was put on antibiotics cipro 500mg bo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> 500mg bo both for 7/7 and a single dose azithromycin 1g the uti cleared up i assumed it was ngu. Two weeks after that i developed multiple tiny lesions red in nature under posterior aspect of my penile shaft inbetween the skin folds they are longitudal about 3mm in length and less than 2mm wide.
Next, I went to my family doctor clinic and was tested again for chlamydia and gonorrhea. While waiting for that result I was given 100mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> 2 times per day for 10 days. Again the tests were negative. I finished this medication about 4 days ago. The stinging in my penis mostly went away by day 6 of this medication but after finishing it the pain has started to creep back in. Still no discharge. And no other aches or pains this time.
To: All 1st cycle of clomis 50 day 2, hoping for the best. How do i kno for certain that i have ovulated. Plz somebody tell me stressed out + my husbands kidz visiting for school holidays do know how to hadle this whyz this hapeing to me.
Also, for a trip to Africa a few years ago, I was on a high dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> as an anti-malarial for two months, and it had no impact on my symptoms whatsoever. But thanks for the thought.
I keep myself very clean and drink plenty of water I thought for sure the clap was back and not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span>. Anyway, I was put on a week of doxycycline finished that and now am having the Dysuria again as well as a feeling in my bladder not of pain but of slight discomfort. My girlfriend and I had had sex one day after I finished the doxy. So what could this be is my question if I came back negative for chlamydia? I will get tested again in a week or so if necessary. What do you think?
Over the next few days the pain persisted and I ended up going to the hospital in which they diagnosed me as having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span>, gave me a dose of painkillers and a general <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uti</span> antibiotic and told me to stop taking the doxycycline. After that the symptoms seem to clear up. A week or so later the doctor I saw when I first had symptoms requested me to come and see her, she informed me I had Ureaplasma and prescribed me the doxycycline again.
two weeks ago, I was tested for chlamydia. I was given a one week dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span>, and completed the antibiotics exactly as directed. My test results confirmed that it was a chlamydia infection with no other infections showing up on the test. While I was taking the antibiotics, the symptoms, which was a very slight feeling of discharge and some general but minor itching subsided.
