Azithromycin for trichomoniasis

Common Questions and Answers about Azithromycin for trichomoniasis


Avatar n tn I was researching Trichomoniasis online and one website mentioned that Azithromycin is one treatment for it. Since I was given Azithromycin for the Chlamydia, would this have also cured the Trichomoniasis as well? If not, is there any way a doctor would prescribe me the Trichomoniasis medication without testing? I have read that a swab test is needed to diagnose Trichomoniasis, and I've heard swab testing is incredibly painful so I'd like to avoid that if possible.
Avatar f tn I am a male who tested positive for chlamydia and was treated with azithromycin. It has now been 9-10 days and i am still having discomfort immediately after i urinate. The doctors took a swab and tested for gonnoreah and chlamydia. Is it possible I have trichomoniasis? Or would the swab/culture have detected that even though the doctors just sent it to be tested for chlamydia and gonnoreah?
Avatar m tn The doctor gave me ceftriaxone injection and 1000mg of azithromycin to treat for gonorrhea and chlamydia, along with a urine test. I was not past the incubation period for syphilis and hiv so I'm waiting until January to get tested for them. The results of the urine test came back today and I was negative for both gonorrhea and chlamydia. My symptoms has also disappeared within 24h of receiving the ceftriaxone and azithromycin.
Avatar m tn One morning, about five days after the encounter, I had a tiny bit of penile discharge when I woke up, so I went to the doctor figuring it was chlamydia or gonorrhea. They ordered a urine test from a lab and gave me a round of azithromycin and ciprofloxacin in the meantime. The discomfort subsided for the most part after a few days, and the tests came back a week later negative for both chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Avatar n tn I am not aware of any cases in which trichamonas has been documented to be spread through oral sex. Neither azithromycin nor cefixime has been formally studied for trichamonas. Clinical experience is very clear however that neither of these drugs is reliable therapy for trichamonas.
Avatar n tn My girlfriend confronted me with a pap smear result stating she tested positive for Trichomonas. She'd originally thought she had a bad yeast infection. I have type 2 diabetes and have had problems with yeast infections related to high blood sugar. Is it possible that the Trich result and my yeast infection could be related? A year ago in the beginning of our relationship we had a similar problem which we were both given a z-pack even though I tested positive for nothing.
Avatar m tn But after symptoms failed to resolve, I went to the county STD clinic, 10 days after the episode, and was tested there for Chlamydia and Gonnorhea. I was also given 1G Azithromycin on the spot. The doctor who examined me noted that i jumped when she felt my epididymis on the left side, which made her think I was getting epididymitis from chlamydia. I got the results yesterday, and they were negative.
Avatar m tn About a month ago I was diagnosed with gonorrhea (which sexual contact was a month before diagnosis as well) and was treated with an injection of ceftriaxone and 1g of azithromycin (4 tablets) as chlamydia is commonly known to come with gonorrhea. After a full week and a few days the symptoms were gone. After a month from treatment, I noticed mild itching deep in my urethra, which went away but then the burning started happening.
Avatar f tn The gram staining showed Negative for Trichomoniasis and Monilia. But says many coccobacilli, few gram positive bacilli with many pus cells and clue cells noted. Pap smear says I have Benign reactive changes (typical repair) and pathologist wrote "Severe acute inflammation". The itchiness and swelling subsided a bit with the antibiotic but the purulent discharge is still there but I no longer have to wear pantyliners cause it no longer leaks out.
Avatar f tn I thought that I wanted to get retested to make sure so I went back and had a second round of testing done for chlamydia, gonorrhea and then trichomoniasis. Again all of which came back negative. Then the person that I had had unprotected oral sex with contacted me saying that their test results came back positive for chlamydia and syphilis. Now I had taken a single dose of 1 g Azithromycin a few days prior.
Avatar m tn I received another treatment of doxycycline, and problems sustained. I then took a treatment of azithromycin, and got retested for chlamydia and gonorrhea which is negative. To this day I have received numerous dozes of doxycycline and azithromycin and I still receive the mild symptoms of a little cloudy discharge (could be more sperm being released) and a mild discomfort for a few minutes ONLY after ejaculating (masturbating) then clearing up. I don’t know what else it could be. Please advise?
Avatar n tn CDC recommends switching to doxycycline if azithromycin was used first, or vice versa; and if the problem continues, to treat for possible trichomoniasis. If your partner originally was infected--or if s/he was exposed after you were infected but before you were treated--you could have been reinfected. However, symptoms cannot start only a day after exposure.
Avatar m tn The country were i am living now are all private hospital they probably want to make money out of me. I was already tested neg for Gonnorhea, Trichomoniasis and have no sex since 2 weeks. plz help i am very anxious.
Avatar m tn I'm not an expert on trichomoniasis either, so I can't say. Is Azithromycin over the counter in Australia?
Avatar m tn I returned and was retested for HIV, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, but this time I included Trichomoniasis, and Herpes. ALL came back negative. I was told I probably had NGU but may be immune to flagyl, so they gave me tinidazole which i took four pills in one day, along with the 1000mg azithromycin. The problems persisted. I decided to give it a month to see if it would go away or get worse. I would have a day or two a week with little pain, but it never completely goes away.
Avatar m tn No. Ask your doc for azithromycin or doxycycline. Tell your doc to refer to the CDC STD Treatment Guidelines if he has questions.
Avatar m tn Hey doc, I just got a few questions, i did get tested for bacterial infections today, i had a clear slight discharge, and the lady did a smear of it and checked for trichomoniasis and chlamydia. I found out today that i do in fact have trichomoniasis, i wont know if i have chlamydia until approx 2 weeks from now. She proceeded to give me cipro, azithromycin and flagyl.
Avatar n tn I was put on Levaquin 500mg/day for two weeks. He said, just in case it is chlamydia, I could take 1 gram of azithromycin as well (which I did). This was 3 weeks ago. So 1 gram of azithromycin and 500 mg levaquin. Next.. The secretions were still in my urethra. So after 12 days on levaquin with no results, went back and the doc put me on Doxicylene for 2 weeks. I was on it for 10 days and still had the problem not getting better (general pain and secretions).

Avatar f tn My bf, well now ex, tested positive early April for chlamydia and negative for HIV, syphillis, gonnorhea (s/p). He just decided to tell me last week. As a result, I was tested for all of the above. My HIV and syphilis were negative. I haven't gotten my test results for the gon or chlamydia, but my doc gave me 2 gs of azithromycin to clear up both chlamydia and gonnorhea (s/p) just in case. My questions are: 1. Will the 2 g of azithromycin clear both?
Avatar m tn the test came back positive for chlamydia and the doctor gave me one dose of azithromycin. I waited about one week and still felt the pain in my penis so I went back and he gave me doxycycline and told me it might all be in my head. I'm am now finished wit the ten day course of doxycycline and still feel slight symptoms. my girlfriend went to the doctor and came back positive for Trichomoniasis. now could I be still in pain because I haven't been treated for Trichomoniasis?
Avatar f tn If it was clamydia or gonorrhoea, your doctor gave you the medicine to treat it. So you would be clear after 7 days, as soon as you didn't have any sexual contact during this 7 days after treatment. If you have sexual contact you could get reinfected. There's nothing to be done now for while you wait. I know it's hard, but keep calm and all will be fine.
Avatar n tn Both tests came out negative but I was still given a shot and put on Azithromycin I was not tested for Trichomoniasis but requested metronidazole to take just in case. I finished the medication and felt fine for a few days now the symptoms have come back as a slight burning when urinating and it feels that my urethra has fluid in it I don't know how else to describe. It's like i urinate and it does'nt all come out. Please Help!!!
Avatar f tn I took that for a week and my symptoms never went away. I went back and she tested for Trichomoniasis and that came back negative. Both of us have been 100% faithful since I cheated on him. I have my yearly pap smear Tuesday and I'm going to get retested for Chlamydia but my head is going crazy since I don't want our fertility to be affected. My questions- Is it possible that the azithromycin may have not worked for him and he reinfected me with Chlamydia?
19413498 tn?1477673341 I went to two different doctors for this issue and was prescribed 4 different antibiotics for STD symptoms (light penis rash, itching after ejaculation) they thought I had, but had tested negative for all STDs (After and unprotected encounter. I am male). I am very worried taking all these antibiotics will cause damage to me in the long run. Here is what I was prescribed 1. July- Doxycycline Hyclate for a week (was told should "clean any issues up down there") 2.
Avatar m tn My doctor didn't give me the metronidazole because I tested negative for trichomoniasis. I took the azithromycin 4 tablets in one dose on only one day. If U. urealyticum has colonized wouldn't it take longer than one day of treatment for me to be cleared of it? But with him taking both, I don't know which med is clearing his symptoms. It could be the metronidazole which would also cure Gardnerella vaginalis. I guess the biggest question I have is that if it were U. urealyticum, G.
Avatar m tn I previously caught trichomoniasis, and I had a 7 day metronidazole (twice/day) treatment. Prior to taking the latter, I was advised to take 1gram of Azithromycin, so Im guessing that rids me of gonorrhea. Once again, I had unprotected sex and I noticed a foul smelling odor similar to a rotten fish from the lady I was with. I did not notice any discharge from her, and I was only made aware of the smell when I wiped my penis after sex.
Avatar m tn The only way to tell for sure is testing for her. Testing for you might yield something, but may not. Same for your partner but testing is typically more reliable in women. It may be worth treating both of you at the same time just to verify if there are any changes in your condition. If your recent tests are negative and you discuss treatment with your doctor and it doesn't help, you will need further follow up, potentially from a urologist. Keep us updated.
Avatar n tn However, even after being tested and treated for EVERYTHING, all of my results were negative and antibiotics and anti-fungal (oral and topical) did nothing. The infection only went away after 3 weeks on it's own after the doctor's tried everything. Since then I've been left with swelling/inflammation on the tip of my penis and redness around the area. This gets worse after sexual activity or masturbation. Luckily, no pain, itching or irritation. It just looks infected.
