Azithromycin and urinary tract infection

Common Questions and Answers about Azithromycin and urinary tract infection


Avatar m tn Before the test, I was treated with Azithromycin, Metronidazole, and Ciprofloxacn from my urologist I have a feeling that I have NGU or Urinary Tract Infection, but I'm not sure if the 3 medicines I had would have treated NGU/UTI already. I'm really confused right now, and I'm not sure what I should do next, or see what kind of doctors. My urologist recommended me to do a Cystoscopy exam if my symptoms doesn't go away after the medications.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, if there are PMNs present you should be tested further for other pathogens, for a non-STI urinary tract infection, or for prostate infection. You have now been treated with treatment which should be highly effective for chlamydia, Mycoplasma genitalium, and trichomonas. Had these been present , you should have been successfully treated. I hope these suggestions are helpful.
Avatar m tn Finally my family doctor sent me to a lung specialist and he told me I had a mycoplasma infection. I was on antibiotics for 2-3 weeks and I felt much better. Needless to say that has not been the end of it and I've never been the same since. I don't know if the long term mycoplasma infection did damage but anytime I get a cold or flu my body can't fight it off and I end up on a 2 week course of Biaxin (minimum). I met another older lady in a hospital clinic and we started talking.
Avatar n tn It is not as bad as before when I could barely stand, but it is still there, and the fact that the pain is still there means I still have a fungal infection. Recently, my doctor said I have a candida infection, and gave me Diflucan (flucanozole) to take for 10 days. I just finished it and there was no apparent effect. Now, I'm not so sure it is a fungal infection. Urine and blood analyses done back in August showed no bacteria in the blood or urine. Could it still be a bacterial infection?
Avatar f tn 4) The antibiotic-after-sex advice does not apply to Ureaplasma, only to non-STD urinary tract infections, usually caused by E. coli and related bacteria. In some women, UTIs are triggered by sex, even though UTI isn't an STD. Your use of the term "GP" for general practitioner suggests you might be in the UK (we call them family practioners/FP in North America). If so, consider a visit to your local genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic.
Avatar m tn That could cause the fatigue and lack of concentration. This may be due to an infection. Have you had your urine tested lately for a urinary tract infection? Are you still following the doctors advice in using only water to wash the meatus area so you won't get irritation? I would get a urine culture first and see if that is what is causing your problem. Its not likely that an infection due to oral sex would cause the symptoms you have it would be more sore throat etc.
Avatar m tn In the urogenital tract these organisms are responsible for causing UTI (urinary tract infection ) and urethritis. Men may be asymptomatic if they have urethritis and occasionally they may have urethral discharge, urethral pruritus, dysuria or penile discomfort. For UTI, symptoms may include a frequent urge to urinate and a painful, burning feeling in the vicinity of the bladder or urethra during urination.
Avatar m tn I contracted a strep B infection of my urinary tract in mid-January (from receiving oral sex). It took a while to diagnose (I kept testing neg for all STDs, I thought I had HSV) and when it was diagnosed in early April I was put on a course of antibodies. Retested positive so I did another course... tested neg but symptoms persisted. Retested in mid-July and tested positive again. This time was given a 90-cap dosage of amoxicillin ( 3 times a day for 30 days).
Avatar m tn Gardnerella vaginitis is a common vaginal bacterial infection that affects three out of four women at least once in their lives and usually accompanies either a yeast, trichomonas or urinary tract infection. Men can be infected through sexual intercourse and can also transmit to additional partners. Read more:" Hope some of this eases your mind some.
Avatar m tn Dear MedHelp community, this is my first entry. I need an expert advice regarding the above mentioned question on a suspected Chlamydia trachomatis infection of my gut. In 2012, I was first diagnosed with Chlamydia tr. after having unprotected sex with my new girlfriend. This urinary tract infection was "cured" with 1g of Azithromycin. However, I (the stupid naive 20 year old guy I was) forgot about the good old ping-pong effect.
Avatar m tn If it isn't large infection it may not show a urinary tract infection either as it has to be 4mm large to be seen by that method. CT doesn't always have a discharge and can just be pain on urination. You may have a bacteria Ureaplasma urealyticum which is not an STD and can cause these symptoms as well. So, I think you need further testing.
Avatar n tn i don't have a sore throat but i do have a urinary tract infection that's not being cleared up with antibiotics so my doctor asked me did i want a chlamydia test done. i told him him not to bother. you see i didn't think it was necessary cos i'm a virgin but i have gone down on a guy without a condom. also, without getting too graphic here, i read on some website that you don't have to have full sex to get chlamydia. i.e. can you get chlamydia just through hand jobs??
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor and he said it might be an infection of my urnairy tract system he prescribed me azithromycin 6 day medication. I think my anxiety is making it worst or overthinking. Does anyone feel the same?
Avatar m tn I think after the first course of antibiotics, me just sitting around (writing conference papers, in my defence) after not emptying my urethra completely of urine led to a lower urinary infection, aka urethritis. This was allowed since my urinary tract was devoid of natural bacteria. The second dose of meds took care of it, since it was bacterial too (this is my current theory). The gentle sting has been gone for a couple days now. But the head of my penis is still soar.
Avatar m tn It is characterized by pelvic or perineal pain without evidence of urinary tract infection and persists for more than three months. Pain can be present in the perineum, lower abdomen, testicles, tip of penis, pubic or bladder area and there may be pain after urination and ejaculation. The cause is not completely known but may vary from psychological factors to dysfunction in the immune, neurological and endocrine systems.
Avatar n tn but I still have a prettty bad urinary infection. The doc then took a swab to figure out what antibiotics I need to cure the UTI. I have to go back in a couple of days for the results and for the meds. On a personal note, Dr H, thank you for helping me through a tough few weeks. Much appreciated.
Avatar m tn im possitive that will eradicate the final 20 % PS my GFs symptoms have now manifested with a urinary tract infection i guess zithro will be her start i hope she doesn't need moxi i kinda want to go with her to the emergency room as her GP is gone for the week. you think i can explain this to them at the emergency room.?
Avatar m tn On the third day, the burning sensation has reduced, however, the tip of the head and inside the tube ( urinary tract leading to the tip of the head ), I still felt burning sensation only after I pass urine. If I have a lot of urine, then I don't feel the burning sensation, only for those short one, and at the last drop of the urine. This to me is weird. I revisited the doctor, and he saw the opening of the tip of my head, there is redness and he described that is "Angry Red".
Avatar m tn Drink cranberry juice, and vitamin C pills (especially after dinner), make your urine acidic; drink more water too, if you can drink 1/4 shot of apply cider vinegar twice a day. I never tried mannos-5, but heard its helped people. Then, avoid high fructose high sugar foods/soft drinks, ice cream, fatty acids.
Avatar n tn Alternatively, there may be something other than NGU going on here such as a urinary tract infection (rare in men), prostatitis (more common) or a recently recognized problem called the chronic pelvic pain syndrome (well )defined and described on Wikipedia). Perhaps one of these is going on. Perhaps some of these comments will be helpful. If you reply, please be patient, I will be traveling and it may be a while before I am able to reply.
Avatar m tn I started getting the burning more or less a day or two after sex and was curious whether or not this is a result of the chlamydia infection or possible something else such as a urinary tract infection?
Avatar f tn I hope that you didn't get the strep into the urinary tract though. So you may want to wait on the AZO and tell your doctor about it and have them do a urine culture. Well, Its up to you. If the AZO works why not try it and if it doesn't go away in a couple of days report it.
Avatar m tn Today, I was given a single dose of Azithromycin, 1g, to treat a urinary tract infection. In 1.5 hours after taking it, I developed a very strong diarrhea - watery stool with poorly digested food. What should I do now ? My main fear is, of course, developing pseudomembranous colitis - is there a way I can reduce this risk somehow ?

Avatar m tn I didn't comment previously on your wife's symptoms, but they are entirely consistent with a garden-variety urinary tract infection that has nothing to do with your sexual indiscretion. And as far as pink-eye is concerned, there are non-sexually acquired infections that could cause that plus urethritis, in particular various strains of adenovirus.
Avatar m tn Be that as it may, with repeated treatments with both doxycycline and azithromycin, you may wish to talk to your doctor about a course of moxifloxacin. Your situation is a difficult one and moxifloxacin has proven to be effective against chlamydia, mycoplasma genitalium and gets into the prostate well. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn My urethral symptoms began last month and culminated into a VERY painful night in the ER. Upon suspect of a urinary tract infection (the urine was not cultured; it was really cloudy, though). I was put on Levaquin for one week, and although it greatly reduced the pain, it did not eradicate it, which was why I suspected an STD and made an appointment with a gynecologist. I had stopped the Levaquin for seven days prior to seeing the gynecologist for the pap smear and STD cultures.
19078612 tn?1471990602 When she saw her OBGYN he informed her that she did have a Urinary Tract Infection and the presence of Ureaplasma. She had gotten treated and we continued having protected sex. Recently within the last week, she informed me that she had another UTI and had gotten tested and voila, Ureaplasma. (Keep in mind that the other Girlfriend has no symptoms, issues or problems.) So I decided to not only research Ureaplasma, but to also present it to my doctor. As well as tell my other sexual partner.
Avatar n tn He initially presented with fevers, headache, blood in the urine and was told by an emergency room doctor that he had a urinary tract infection and was given a ten day dose of Bactrim. After a day or so he developed pain and swelling in the testicles. He then went to a free clinic and was diagnosed with epididymitis and orchitis. He was given a shot of ceftriaxone and a gram or two of azithromycin to drink. This was a few days ago. Last night he had a fever of 104 degrees F. and threw up.
