Amoxicillin for stds

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin for stds


Avatar n tn Amoxicillin is not an optimal antibiotic for most STDs an is no longer the recommeded therapy for any STD. Although many strains of gonorrhea are now resistant to amoxicillin I would anticipate that about 70-75% of gonorrhea would be cured by the amoxicillin you were prescribed as would most chlamydial infections. This dose you were prescribed would also certainly prevent syphilis.
Avatar m tn Would 1 gram, 3x daily (3 grams daily) of Amoxicillin for 10 days kill Chlamydia and Gonnorea? What other conditions might cause a pinching sensation and a slight red discloration at the tip of my penis?
Avatar m tn org/posts/HIV---Prevention/insertive-v-receptive-oral/show/1922236 The risk of some STDs is a bit higher -- low for all (e.g., gonorrhea, syphilis) and virtually zero for others (e.g., chlamydia). Your med student friend has some learning to do about STDs. I wouldn't have recommended any antibiotic treatment at all; and amoxicillin is a poor choice for STD prevention. What to do now?
Avatar n tn So he went to his physician who was easy to prescribe antibiotics. In this case the antibiotic, Amoxicillin did nothing for him. So he was prescribed it again and yes again until his doctor changed antibiotics and after a long 2 months the symptoms seemed to fade. He had lost weight, noticed he lost his complexion, felt symptoms of low testosterone, and became depressed. He described himself as feeling diseased. He had not totally recovered from his illness.
Avatar n tn I went to a dermatologist, which they determined my skin irritation to be Guttate Psoriasis. Applied a steroid creme and amoxicillin and it went away (except for my scalp). Dec 2013 - Present Once in awhile i would get a small rash at the tip of my penis, but would go away after 3-4 days with the help of antibotic ointment and some basic anti-fungal creme (I think I had a minor case of balantis from hygene and excessive masturbation causing irritation to the skin).
Avatar f tn What are the chances of acquiring an STD via oral sex? I’m also on 500mg of amoxicillin for 10 Days every six hours for a sinus infection.
Avatar m tn I took them for tooth infection by the way, not for some std
Avatar m tn The medication your docter gave you was likely ceftriaxone which is good therapy for many STDs and urinary tract infections in men (see below). On to your questions: 1. Yes, it could have possibly made your tests for gonorrhea, chlamydia, NGU negative. It also might have prevented these infections, as well as syphilis if they were incubating. 2. You got cetriaxone and doxycycline. this is curative therapy for gonorrhea, chlamydia, NGU and preventative therapy for syphilis.
Avatar m tn I have read some threads on the site and it seems as though the transmission rates for STDs from receiving oral are not that high. I wanted to confirm that NGU and gonorrhea are the two that are a bit more common. The woman did not appear to have any sores of the sort. Am I at risk for chlamydia, herpes, HIV, or any other STD? Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn   I'm a 41 yo male and in the past two months I picked up the same prostitute and received 2 or 3 unprotected oral sex with ejaculation in her mouth every time, she was older and I think she could of had false teeth and I never seen any sore on or around her lip, 3 weeks ago being the last encounter, so far I haven't seen any sores or blisters nor have I had any discharge or pain or burning when urinating and I cant really remember if I ever had a cold sore myself, the most  symptom I had was a
Avatar n tn 1) although not preferred, will the Augmentin regimen clear me of anything? 2) how soon could I be accurately tested for STD's?
Avatar m tn Hi, I am 29 yr old gay male and always practice safe penetration (top if that matters) but much for oral since I read in many forums that oral is not so risky. In mid August, I had a pea sized small swollen lymph under my left jaw. I didn't know it was a lymph, and since it didn't hurt, I didn't care much. It stayed there for like a month and then second one of similar size came up close to it in mid Sept. Slowly they started going down, but then a third one popped up above them.
Avatar n tn As you recongize, the likelihood you acquired an STD from the exposure you describe are extremely low; for practical purposes, zero. 1) No, it makes no sense to be tested for STDs, assuming you have had no potential exposures other than the ones you describe. 2) All bacterial STDs (e.g., gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, etc) would have cleared on their own after 10 years; or would have been cured by the antibiotics you took for other infections. 3) Sure, if it's a treatable STD.
Avatar n tn you would need a swab test to have your throat tested for STDs. 4. I suspect you do not need any throat testing for STDs. You should however discuss this with your doctor when you see him/her. Good luck.
Avatar f tn i hope this is not ars so i went to nose and neck specialist and prescribed for amoxicillin 750 mg which i had today and ferlling better now. today morning i had small rounded herpes on my lips as well as on my back sides of neck and chest after 25 days of exposure. so i am worried about this red small herpes. i want to know that what other stds after such a risky exposure should i have to test. the symptomps which i have now is herpes.
Avatar m tn However, I just went to the doctor this week for my throat and was prescribed amoxicillin for pharyngitis. (I didn't mention the testicle pain because it's not that bad). I was supposed to take one 500mg capsule every 8 hours for 10 days (30 doses in total). I took it for one day (3 doses - 1 that afternoon I got it, 1 that night, and 1 the next morning).
Avatar m tn Oral sex with women in Denver is very low risk for all STDs and close to zero risk for syphilis. Directly to your questions: 1. If you had been exposed to syphilis and if an infection were getting started, the amoxicillin would cure it before symptoms ever began and your blood test would never turn positive. Most likely you were not infected, but you will never be able to know for sure. 2-4.
Avatar n tn i asked her if she had any std history and she repiled that some years ago she had chlamydia and was treated for it. obviously im very distraught. i took 2g amoxicillin immediatly after i showered. what are the chances i have contracted any form of std especially herpes. i have read everything from high risk to very low low risk less than 5%? i do not want my wife to contract this so the next afternoon i took 2g azithromycin and also started doxycycline 100 bid for 14 days.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor and they did a strep stept which came out negative he prescribed me amoxicillin 500 mg 2 pills 2 timess day for 10 days for tonsilitis. I am now freaking out thinking i have an std. Ive been taking the amoxicillin for 2 days and it has cleared my throat quite a bit. Do you think i should go get tested? Or should i wait and see if it clears up. I am married and have had sex with my husband 2 times since the encounter with the stranger.
Avatar m tn I went in again to get tested for all stds a day later but I had already taken 1 pill of amoxicillin. The urine test came back negative again and the blood test is not done testing yet. I am still having the same symptoms with little improvement 3 days on amoxicillin.
Avatar m tn I then went to another doctor in urgent care because the pain was soo intense I could barely concentrate on anything. That doc gave me amoxicillin for urethritis, I tried it for a week and it didn't help. I then went to a urologist who diagnose me with prostatitis after doing a rectum exam. It was very painful and seem to have irritated my penis head. He then prescribed doxycycline for 30 days 2xdaily 100mg. I've been on this for 8 days now and have not experienced the slightest improvements.
Avatar f tn I have read conflicting threads about the risks. I took a test 5 days after the last exposure for stds (no throat test). I am still waiting for the results and I am so stressed out. Would you please help me on this?
Avatar m tn I was not tested for strep or for any STDs the office i was diagnosed with acute pharyngitis but i am concerned that this may not be the case. I was wondering if i was to have an STD would this medication cure what i have or should i go back to the clinic to make sure.
Avatar m tn Amoxicillin is not usually given for stds. In fact, I don't know of any that it actually would treat. Most bacterial non-gonorrheal stds are treated with doxycycline 2/day for 7-10 days or Azithromycin 2g one time. For gonorrhea, you need a shot, I forget what it's called plus Ciprofloxacin. For viral stds, they have no cure although you may be able to reduce symptoms by taking antiviral medications.
Avatar n tn That's not a commonly prescribed medication for stds, and its not on the preferred treatment guidelines. If you had protected sex, you are taking meds you do not need, and I can't give you advice about what to take. It creates resistance, and situations like this are why we have very few drugs to treat gonorrhea now.
Avatar n tn I have been showing symptoms of strep, for about two months now. Initially, they did a rapid strep test about 4 days after i was showing the symptoms and it came back negative for strep. I was & still am, noticing white lines on the inside of my cheeks, looks like spider veins throughout my mouth, red tonsils, and small flesh colored bumps on the back of my throat. every morning i've been having a bad case of post nasal drip, and it feels like i always need to clear my throat.
Avatar f tn i is there any chance of changing of my result after 12 weeks. please what other stds should i test for. especially related to throat problem since 1 week and blisters in my moouth. thanks alot. please helo us god.
