The Mayo Clinic website says this: "Urine is made up of excess water and waste products that have been filtered from your blood by your kidneys. Its yellow color comes from urochrome, a pigment that results from the breakdown of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells. "Discolored urine is often caused by medications, certain foods or food dyes. For instance, the dyes used in some sugary cereals can show up in kids' urine.
Hello, Flagyl causes darkened urine in some users and the pigment which is probably responsible for this phenomenon has not been positively identified; it is almost certainly a metabolite of metronidazole and seems to have no clinical significance. Other than that consumption of certain foods like beet,blackberry ,rhubarb and senna can cause orange urine. Certain other medicines like rifampin (Rifadin); the blood thinner warfarin (Coumadin); phenazopyridine (Pyridium) also cause orange urine.
It almost always is explained by fluid intake and output--drink more fluids and anyone's urine will be lighter in color. Other diseases also can cause dark urine, such as hepatitis and other liver problems. But apparently your urinalysis was normal, so this isn't of any concern.
I'll be as brief as possible. I have seen over 7 doctors and I have yet to get a diagnosis on this mysterious set of symptoms. July 19, 2009: Three hours after eating a large meal, I felt horrible stomach pain, dizziness, headache, fast heart...i thought i was having a heart attack. August 09: Blood work normal. Stool samples positive for Dientamoeba Fragilis trophozoites and Endoimax Nana.
I've noticed the toilet paper I wrap around my penis had discharge in it when I would go to the bathroom and check, and as I said before, It was drying to a cream color. Today the discharge has been clear, doesn't have any color when dried, and is more liquid on consistency and does not accumulate on in the toilet paper, it soaks in. I take this as a sign of things getting better?
For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
(dipped the paper strip into the urine and checked the color change). The Dr. said based on the above narrative and urinalysis, she assumed Clymidia, and treated me with two single dose antibiotics. I continued to have very mild pain so went to a GP. Who did the swab test, and also treated me with a 10 day course of antibiotics. The tests then came back negative for both Clymidia, and Ghonoreeha. Now, 2 months after the unprotected intercourse, 1 month after the 10 day antibiotic treatment.
my discharge is usually clear or white and is very slimy and sometimes it leaves a yellowish color residue in my underwear. i havehad sex . one time i thought i might of had a tampon stuck in there so i felt around and didn't feel anything but when i pulled my fingers out there was this chunky white disharge all over my fingers like there was residue or something on my vaginal walls. and sometimes i get like lower left abdominal pains. please give my feed back about this.
My discharge is a normal clear color but it dries yellowish, but I think that's normal for me because I also recently had a full STD urine and blood test done and came back clean before I started having this problem (it has always dried yellowish) Does anyone know what this smell could be?
I went to the doctor two weeks ago after experiencing a month of symptoms consisting of a burning sensation during urination, urgency in urination, blood in urine twice, and minimal urinary output. I also noted a possible fever and chills twice. Also, during the month of symptoms my discharge showed no change with no odor or color.
Start with a full bladder,1) pull your foreskin back, exposing the head of your penis, 2) start urinating into the urine receptacle and after about a third of a cup of urine has passed, 3) collect some in the urine container. It is easy to have a false urinalysis (either a litmus paper type of test or a sample viewed under a microscope) if this method is not followed. I do not think that the ear symptom is related to you genital discomfort. S.A.Liroff, M.D.
That night I had to urinate almost every hour, and had a hard time starting and there was only small amounts of urine. On 11-3-08, I went to my Doctor. He said it looked like herpes and did a culture to send to the lab, and gave me Valtrex which I started. On 11-4-08, I started noticing a discharge and pain when urinating. It wasn't pus, but was similar to what a fire ant bite liquid looks like. I went on my own that same day to a lab to have a urine screen done for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Its only about a drop or 2, but it easily comes out when i slightly squeeze on my penis. Its yellow in color and as far as I can tell, it has no smell. WHen this discharge is there, I experience pain/burning throughout my urethra for the day. It can get pretty intense as well. This all started after a long sex encounter with an ex gf (we literally had sex 8 times in a matter of 3-4 hours). I've been tested for UTI's, chlamydia, and gonorrhea multiple times. All tests are negative.
About a month after having sex with new girl, noticed red circular rash around urethra opening, went to dr & he thought yeast infection, prescribed cream. Later noticed clear discharge, went back for chlam/gon, positive for chlam. Girlfriend went & got full std screen, positive only for the chlam. Rash never seemed to fully go away (worse with irritation, then fade at times).
i know because in school we have to smell the urine of our other classmates and write the color smell, and do urine dipstick test on each other. urinalysis. so you might want to go and see the ob/gyn. keep me posted.
However, I have not noticed any color changes in the urine as far as cloudines is concerned. There is also no blood. I also sometimes experience this burning sensation after i ejaculate. I am pretty sure the burning sensation is slowly subsiding, however i am very concerned. Any information regarding my status as well as adivce would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!
I would go to the doctor for the kidney or bladder infection they would find bacteria when they checked my urine, they would always tell me that my urine looked dark, I drink water only and take vitamins so I thought I drink when I am thirsty and it must be the vitamins and taking and making my urine dark. The other day they did a colon exam and said I was constapated was my problem.
There are two treatment options with metronidazole (Flagyl) - an oral antibiotic or a topical antibiotic cream. Metronidazole can cause nausea and darkening of urine. Alcohol consumption should be avoided while on this medication, and for 48 hours after treatment, due to possible alcohol intolerance, which can result in nausea and vomiting. If you are using the vaginal antibiotic preparation, it must be used daily. Trichomoniasis - This infection is caused by a one-celled protozoan organism.
Ever since I had BV I've had an excess amount of discharge and I thought maybe the doxycycline would get rid of it so when it didn't I freaked out and assumed I still had chlamydia so the doctor gave me azithromyacin and a urine test (roughly 3 weeks after finishing doxycycline). The test came back negative for chlamydia. The discharge is still there however (no smell, no itching, nothing irregular other than amount).
I have been tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, HIV, UTI's, Prostatitis, nongonococcal urethritis, etc. and nothing. I have been to a urologist, in the ER, had swabs, urine samples, blood drawings, etc. and nothing. My partners have developed a fishy smell in their vaginal area and several yeast infections. Usually they are treated with Metronidazole and the smell will go away temporarily but it always returns.
Discharge persist after the first 3 days and added metronidazole 2x/7 days.(which i believed did the trick) Returned after a week,did gram stain/urine test showed i was clean(epethelial cells on gram stain) but still given cefuroxime IM.Several days saw a urologist complaining of pain in my left lower abdomen area and slight ache on left testicles,he said it was probably muscular and did a DRE and said i was ok.
You clearly have persistent or recurrent NGU, which occurs at least 20% of the time following treatment of nonchlamydial NGU. Some cases are due to trichomonas, and standard guidelines (e.g., CDC) are that the second round of treatment should include metronidazole (Flagyl) or tinidazole (Tindamax). (I strongly prefer tinidazole, which probably is more effective in men.
when the penis is erect the vein stretches out and not visible. the vein is the color of my skin and does not have any pain. at times there tends to be irritation after ejaculation, but not always. could this be due to overgrowth of yeast causing my pain or damage inside the urethra due to the initial infection. i would like some answers or ideas at least ball park figures.
(2) tingling or painful irritation, an uncomfortable feeling in the penis; (3) swelling, red color and a very sensitive penis; (4) a rash in blotches on the glans penis that causes pain." www.americanchronicle.com/articles/60148 Staph. and strep. are not normal in the semen. These are bacterial organisms that cause infections, which can be treated with antibiotics (those which the organisms are sensitive to). Be persistent in identifying the cause of your problem.
didn't have me undergo any tests (visual or clinical) and opted merely to quiz me on the discharge (color, amount) and whether there was any accompanying irritation during urination. I had another HIV test run -- clean again! The "specialist" prx'd 3 doses of ???? admin. by injection 24hrs apart in conjunction with 7days of Ciprofloxacin (500mg 2x daily). My condition improved.
A urologist performed a cystoscopy and found nothing.He did find though a high amount of WBC in my urine again. He is running more test but he is confused. My questions are as follows: 1. Could this be HIV? I got a bad sinus infection 9 weeks after exposure with a slight fever (seroconversion?) I've had no rash at all, no vomiting, etc, 2. Could the bacteria had mutated somehow. Is this just remnents that are not growing in culture of the same bacteria?
Pcp did urinalysis, (-) Rx. Bactrim-DS. I masturbated hours after dose, glans and external meatus stayed red color after painful ejaculation. Glans/uretheral rash since faded in color but cracking skin & discoloration still visible until today. 4 weeks post exposure (the next day) Pcp diagnosed prostatitis after DRE, which was immediately painful. Tests: std ab, post DRE-urine culture, ghono/chlamydia urine, oral quick HIV: all -. Started Cipro 500 mg 2x/day. 35 days post exp.
So being the paranoid person I am, I went to the doctors and tested positive for Chlamydia and negative for Gonorrhea through a urine test. The day I went in he prescribed me a 7 day treatment of Doxycycline of 2 pills a day before my results had even came back. During the course of treatment I noticed that the itchiness had gone away but my urethra was still tender when I would squeeze it and I still had a clear discharge occasionally.
