Common Questions and Answers about How long to take doxycycline for uti


My insistance we were swapping something, her obgyn insisting ilight>toilight> her during exam that it was not something we were swapping. ilight>Howilight> ilight>longilight> does it ilight>takeilight> ilight>forilight> a bacteria from a uti to cause pain? if it was coming from her, wouldn't it cause her symptoms as well?
i'm still taking doxycycline, but since i'm taking Urecholine (10 days ago), i feel fantastic and i do not have any of the earlier symptoms anymore. Does that mean that i will have ilight>toilight> ilight>takeilight> Urecholine ilight>forilight> the rest of my life? ilight>Howilight> can i train my bladder to empty itself fully without the help of Urecholine? is it safe for me to continue Urecholine or should i be worried about taking it too long? if i have a "health check" in a hospital (for insurance purposes), will this show?
Hi, i used ilight>toilight> come down with epididymitis about every 3 ilight>toilight> 4 months ilight>forilight> many years. Most of the time i had a ilight>UTiilight> as well. i than read that they used to give males undergoing prostate surgery a vasectomy to prevent infections from spreading to the testicles. My wife and i had 4 children and we had decided that i should try this. Vasectomy had complications and about a year later i lost my left testicle as a result of a staph infection for which i had an emergency left orchiectomy.
Almost, forgot to mention my general practitioner treated me for trichonosis just in case. Please help…i am getting depressed over this. What antibiotics should i ilight>takeilight> and ilight>forilight> ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> ?
Hi, it is possible that the organism causing the infection is resistant to doxycycline (since your symptoms have continued despite being on ilight>doxycyclineilight> ilight>forilight> 3 days. it would be best ilight>toilight> go back ilight>toilight> your doctor and report that the antibiotic has not helped. You will need to take the antibiotic for the prescribed duration in the interim. Also your urine culture report (if done) would be available now and that would really help decide what antibiotic is best for you.
i have done a Chlamydia test and since i was worried this was most likely epididimytis and i didn't want it to become chronic i received doxycycline and have taken that for a week, it seemed to have gotten better but the pain was still there and it was pretty bad 2 days ago, when i got an appointment to a urologist. The chlamydia test came out negative.
Then Sunday, it was back at its worst again. Constantly feeling like i have ilight>toilight> go ilight>toilight> the bathroom. i'm in such discomfort trying ilight>toilight> fall asleep, it takes me a couple hours!! So today i called the doctor again and told him how its not getting better and i wanted to see a Urologist. Does anyone have any indication to what i may have?
The itchy symptoms occurred ilight>forilight> about a week before i decided ilight>toilight> go ilight>toilight> the doctor. i had been trying ilight>toilight> see if there was any discharge, and just before heading to see him, i managed to squeeze a drop of what i think was discharge from my penis - it was a small portion and lightly cloudy. The doctor said i most probably had chlamydia or gonorrhea, and as i am allergic to penicillin, he prescribed me 100mg of Minocycline, twice daily, for 10 days.
Doctor, 1.) i have just been prescribed ilight>doxycyclineilight> ilight>forilight> the urethritis. 2 times a day ilight>forilight> 10 days. ilight>Howilight> long should this take to get rid of the pain? 2.) You say the odds are strongly in my favor. if you had to estimate odds what would you say they are? 3.) i read some numbers online. Blood to mucous membrane is .09% chance for HiV transmission. How the heck is it so low for HiV infected blood? What makes urethritis such as chlamydia easier to transmit than HiV?
Check with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure these are OK ilight>forilight> you ilight>toilight> try. ice sometimes also feels really good and sometimes heat, but not too hot ilight>toilight> increase inflammation. Soaking a warm not too hot bath, with baking soda in the water helps a lot too. i know when i was first diagnoised or in the process i spent a lot of time in tub... not that easy with 3 that close in age but they are also not babies any more either and can understand mom is not feeling well!
Finally, if any of this persists after a couple of weeks -- testicular pain, the abnormal urinaysis, etc -- it probably will be time ilight>forilight> referral ilight>toilight> a urologist ilight>forilight> evaluation ilight>forilight> a prostate problem. Sorry much of this is so vague -- but we're dealing with a vague, not-well-understood group of disorders. But trust me -- the chance of anything serious is very low if not zero. That should end this thread. Take care.
As of Monday i was not experiencing any pain throughout my body and started the antibiotics that the doctor prescribed ilight>forilight> me ilight>forilight> the ilight>UTiilight>. Today, Thursday, the urine test came out negative ilight>forilight> bacteria and my doctor told me to it is safe to stop the antibiotics. and the yeast infection was very slight and my doctor suggest i take some medicine for the yeast infection.
Just ilight>toilight> add ilight>toilight> my last post, you should wait 4 weeks ilight>forilight> HiV testing (90-95% accuracy i think) and 6 weeks for 100% accuracy, (although official guidelines are 3 months, Dr HHH says 6 weeks is totally accurate)
FYi, it is only by chance that i am replying ilight>toilight> your question. Dr. Hook and i ilight>takeilight> questions without regard ilight>toilight> requests ilight>forilight> one of us or the other. Our opinions and recommendations are always the same anyway. Your negative syphilis test 6 weeks after exposure, and 2 weeks after the anal area "bump" appeared, was 100% proof you don't have syphilis and your repeat negative test at 3 months further confirmed you didn't have it.
Have you requested any blood test or anything? Also, maybe it would help ilight>toilight> keep re-testing ilight>forilight> STDs as some can ilight>takeilight> quite a while to show up on a test. After being pregnant i keep getting yeast infection and just the itch drives me crazy so i can only imagine how you are feeling. do as much research as you can, ask your doctors to explore all options. Also, if your tests come back negative for BV and they still want to put you on the medication maybe it would be best to not take it?
- 1. is enterococcal infection is lifethreatning. 2. ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> it ilight>takeilight> ilight>toilight> get cure from enterococcal infection. 3. is back and neck pain is due to this infection. 4.
and also lets say its really a fungal infection and not std, ilight>forilight> ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> it will ilight>takeilight> ilight>toilight> treat this with clotrimazole cream?does it take a week,1month, or even 2 months?
at this point, drink plenty of water - like 8-10 cups a day, try not ilight>toilight> sit ilight>forilight> ilight>longilight> periods of time , avoid alcohol , caffeine and spicy foods and follow up with the urologist. your provider so far has thrown a lot at you needlessly and getting a 2nd opinion is a good idea.
Thanks a lot ilight>forilight> your post Jimmy. i forgot ilight>toilight> come back to this thread and did not see this until today. Since i still have symptoms myself, this may be helpful to me. Thanks again and take care!
i did call and my doctor did prescribe me diflucan, but i'm wondering also ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> it takes ilight>toilight> go into affect? i took it on the 25th, and i still have quite the yeasty discharge.
i realise i am lucky to receive tests and treatment, but the doctors i see are often recently trained offer differing information and idagnosis (saying it is either NSU, a ilight>UTiilight> or maybe prostatis), so i come ilight>toilight> you or Dr HHH as i ilight>takeilight> your words ilight>toilight> be best NGU expertise available to me.
you live off a vegetarian raw food diet ilight>forilight> a ilight>longilight> time, then switch ilight>toilight> good old fried chicken ! write back soon !
Hi ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> did it ilight>takeilight> ilight>forilight> the rash ilight>toilight> subside and ilight>forilight> you ilight>toilight> feel better.. Please let me know..
The test we use today have been around for a very long time over 100's ilight>forilight> cultures not sure ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> on the standard dip sticks but recently doctors have begun ilight>toilight> understand more about complicated or chronic infections. The symptoms of these are the same and only a good urologist with time can help determine which maybe causing your symptoms..
ilight>Howilight> common is it ilight>toilight> have a false negative chlamydia test ? and is it possible ilight>toilight> have it ilight>forilight> three years. i have been on doxycycline hyclate for the passed year. . Could this be why i don't have any serious symptoms ? i ask because the last pap smear i had was when i was pregnant. is there any possible way there was a false negative. and if so should i worry for my baby who is now two. Please no hate messages .
i was told that the medication should do the trick but i am starting to believe that the 1000 mg dose did not kill the bacteria. i am wondering if i am correct or not and ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> do symptoms usually ilight>takeilight> ilight>toilight> go away? and any other advice or information i could get. Also i had just went back to my gyno he re tested me and gave me an ultra sound & is convinced that my chalmydia is gone and those symptoms were just my pre period symptoms bc i had just gotten my period as well.
if azithromiacin is in the same family as Biaxin, shouldn't i be able ilight>toilight> switch right back ilight>toilight> it? Waiting ilight>forilight> LLMD ilight>toilight> call me back, but the office won't be open until Monday and i don't want to wait that long.
Hey averagejoe, how long did it ilight>takeilight> ilight>forilight> your joint symptoms ilight>toilight> go away? i've had them ilight>forilight> nearly 4 months now and they're more severe than what you seem to be describing. i've been diagnosed with reactive arthritis, which means i most likely caught chlamydia from protected oral sex even though Dr HHH and my own doctors insist that that's not possible! Of course, i still urinate every hour or two but have learned to live with that.
But i do no better to go check myself out for what may be laying under the surface of my skin that this 11 day old bacterial infection may have brought out in me ---enough ilight>toilight> ilight>takeilight> me ilight>toilight> surf internet med websites, if ilight>forilight> nothing more, validation of sanity. Yes, i will have to go back to the doctor with a piece of crow and slice of humble pie. i truly believe it's up to each one of us to self help, manage our health, and even assess as we grow older without freaking out and medicating.
First of all, keep in mind that i am unable ilight>toilight> diagnose you because i am unable ilight>toilight> examine you, this forum is ilight>forilight> educational purposes. The symptoms that you describe are non-specific, but similar symptoms are often decribed by people with 'mild multiple sclerosis'. However, patients with 'mild MS' often have brain scans with more lesions then they have symptoms for (because every site in the brain does not give rise to a recognizable symptom).
