Doxycycline e coli

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline e coli


Avatar m tn Hello, had some infection fount ecoli in my sperm , my urologist prescribe me doxycycline with bactrim (sulfamethoxazole+trimethoprim) i read about bactrim that helps in e coli ,will doxycycline treat the same? i read that helps with chlamydia and other stds but how about e coli.
Avatar m tn I found that stunning, especially in cases where Doxy failed UP TO 50% of the time in curing urethral bacteria infections(Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma, E Coli... etc.). Overall, anti-biotics are very effective. Today, I went to a urologist and they found nothing in particular in my urine. I paid $120 bucks for that and talked to various doctors and nurses. What they suggested was a cystoscopy. That is inserting a camera on a tube to look at the inside of the urethra.
Avatar m tn My wife is on Doxycycline 2x day. If I have Chlamydia or a UTI infection, or prostate for that matter, would the Doxy sucessfully block/treat it? I had a prescription for bactrim and my wife (MD) suggested that I start it as I indicated I felt like I was getting another prostate infection. (I had only taken one pill evening b4 tests at clinic). If I do not have an std, I am incredibly fortunate and lucky and do not intend to tell her.
Avatar n tn I would like to count my story to an urologist and i would like his recommendation. I had systoms of prostatitis, when i made my culture and urine test, it appears the E coli bacteria. My urologist had cured with cipro. Then it appear a bacteria in my urine called enterobacter cloacae. My doctor prescribed me the antibiotics that can kill the bacteria, but when i made my last exam, i just got in the urine culture. My doctor said that it was very strange, so he wants to make me a citoscopy.
Avatar n tn Urinary tract infection is nearly always caused by a single species of bacteria, notably E. coli. Cultures have limitations, however. If a mix of different species is found, the test is considered contaminated and is redone. In addition, even if E. coli is identified, researchers are also looking for variants of these bacteria. Certain types may indicate a higher risk for a second infection, while others may even be protective against recurring infections.

Avatar f tn I assume they've also checked your prostate with all of this too? all you can do at this point is to continue to follow up with your provider. not likely this is a std from receiving oral sex.
565147 tn?1218256191 Most infections arise from one type of bacteria, Escherichia coli (E. coli), which normally lives in the colon. In many cases, bacteria first travel to the urethra. When bacteria multiply, an infection can occur. An infection limited to the urethra is called urethritis. If bacteria move to the bladder and multiply, a bladder infection, called cystitis, results. If the infection is not treated promptly, bacteria may then travel further up the ureters to multiply and infect the kidneys.
Avatar n tn into the urinary opening during sex. Other things can influence it. For example, some strains of E. coli (which we all have) are more prone to colonize the vagina and cause UTI than other strains. Also, sex-induced UTI is more common in diaphragm users than other women. (Diaphragms increase the chance of vaginal colonization with E. coli and similar bacteria.
Avatar n tn In February, strong pain and blood in the urine (strong pain, urgency), culture done and showed E-coli, antibiotic resistant type. I received 7 day injection of Ertapen, it went away. I had Ultrasound and Reflux test done (X-ray), all normal. In April (this months), I had the feeling of urgency again, went to the doctor, urine test done shows nothing. After one hour in the doctor's office, I felt a strong pain in my bladder and had blood in the urine, second urine test showed blood and wbc.
Avatar m tn In sexually active men, Chlamydia trachomatis is the most frequent causative microbe, followed by E. coli and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. In children, it may follow an infection in another part of the body (for example, a viral illness), or there may be an associated urinary tract anomaly. Another cause is sterile reflux of urine through the ejaculatory ducts. Antibiotics may be needed to control a component of infection.
Avatar m tn However, your urologist may be correct, that you had a non-STD infection with an organism of the type that commonly causes urinary tract infections, like E. coli and others. My advice is to continue to work with the urologist about this. It is clear that no STD explains this problem. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Another possibility is that you have a urethral and perhaps bladder infection, i.e. a urinary tract infection (UTI), not necessarily sexually transmitted, due to E. coli or similar bacteria. Such bacteria often are resistant to the antibiotics you were given. A bacterial UTI might be especially likely if you and your partner have anal sex. What to do now? Follow through with the visit to the urologist. When you do, speak with him or her about these ideas and appropriate tests for them.
Avatar m tn Doc suggested it was viral and gave me 1 week of Valtrex + doxycycline. Things settled, but 2 days after meds stopped pain continued. 2. Pain got worse, felt numb in my genitals, severe burning, and even felt it in my feet. Went to GUM clinic, and cleared of all STIs. Went back a few days later as penis was hurting severely - felt like the pain went all the way along my urthethra, and into my body - given gram of arythromycin. Pain continues. 3.
Avatar m tn Could it be anything else? I'm 31, so I wouldn't think I'd be high-risk for something like an E. Coli infection. 2) Could this be a recurrence of epididymitis unrelated to sexual activity and if so, what could have caused it? Could it be chronic? 3) If it is an STI, namely NGU, what are the chances I've passed it on to my partner? Should she be tested? Thanks for all of your help!
Avatar m tn Now, considering your symptoms concerning the penis and anus and the presence of E coli and Enterobacter faecalis in the penis sample, it looks correlated. For this one thing to understand is that Enterobacter is a commensal bacterium inhabiting the gastrointestinal tracts of humans and other mammals. Commensalism is a relationship between two organisms where one organism benefits without affecting the other. Similarly E coli is commonly found in the lower intestine of humans.
Avatar m tn Urethral infection with UTI bacteria, such as E. coli and many others, can follow insertive anal sex. The standard urine cultures generally are considered positive only if large amounts of UTI bacteria are present; the standard cut-off is 100,000 bacteria per ml of urine. Talk to the ID doc about whether smaller amounts of such bacteria might be present, so that the culture was officially interpreted as negative -- but in fact might indicate a continuing low grade infection.
Avatar n tn coli infection almost all urinary tract infections are E. coli and it can migrate into the testicle. Also E. coli can be introduced into the urethra through anal intercourse. This could be something as simple as an allergy to spermicides are lubricants that you're currently using.
Avatar n tn Over the past 18 months I have visited three urologists who have tested for urine culture, semen culture, an E Coli infection was found about a year ago and was treated with cirpofloxin but these were separate symptoms which came on quickly and cleared up with the course of antibiotics.
Avatar n tn , the infamous E. coli) are most common. Some cases aren't infectious. For example, the cardiac drug amiodarone can cause a toxic reaction with epididymitis, and other drugs may as well. And although I have not heard of vasectomy or other procedures on the scrotum/testes predisposing to epididymitis years afterward, it would not surprise me if this happens from time to time. And it's also true that there are cases whose cause simply can't be determined.
Avatar m tn I forgot to mention that by unprotected sex I meant unprotected insertive anal, insertive vaginal and receptive oral sex. The problem I am facing could it be the cause of E-coli or other infections from anal sex? What tests could be done?. It has been 46 days since the exposure. And in this time I have been taking the medicines I have mentioned above. Could you please tell me "all" the std/uti/hiv tests I could do. And I also want to know if medicines will affect the test result.
Avatar m tn But most important in terms of you STD concern, it simply is impossible you had sexually acquired epididymitis after the exposure you described, the negative STD tests, and the treatments you had received. Your urologist is correct that epididymitis can be caused by E. coli and other non-STD bacteria, but that has been reliably excluded by the negative urine culture.
Avatar m tn I have had all std tests and all come back negative including gonnerhea, chlamydia, HIV, herpes, etc. Originally, in March I was diagnosed with having an E. coli infection which cleared up after taking Cipro. A few weeks after I developed the NGU. I acquired this in Asia back in February of this year. Has anyone had any success with these recurring NGU's??? I am at my wits end. Could this be a resistant bacteria?
Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum. Most likely you had gonorrhea -- suggested by the short time from exposure to symptoms and the "severe" yellow discharge. You were treated appropriately, and it sounds like it cleared up just as expected. About a third of people with gonorrhea also have chlamydia, and the treatment covered that as well as gonorrhea. You'll never know for sure; you correctly understand that your negative test results only tell that you weren't infected at that moment.
Avatar m tn Golf ball up the butt, perenium soreness, etc. I got tested positive for e coli in the prostate, and was prescribed cipro. By this time I was totally freaking out so I dipped into my savings and went to see Dr. Guercini in Rome, Italy, for direct prostate injections. He did PCR semen testing for 6 different microorganisms, and found now only ureaplasma uriticum.
Avatar m tn So all things considered, we can dismiss chlamydia and gonorrhea as causes. A minority of cases are caused by standard urinary tract infection (UTI) bacteria, like E. coli and others. These are not sexually transmitted, although once in a while they can cause UTI or epididymitis in men who have been the insertive partners in unprotected anal sex. Was a urine culture done to check for UTI bacteria? Despite my uncertainties, you should follow your doctors' advice, i.e.
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 So, I discontinued the medication and will contact him on Monday to change the prescription. After research, it appears that Orchitis in young men results mostly from Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. E. coli seems a possibility, but it might be remote since I did not develop this since after I had the two-condom protected intercourse. During protected intercourse, some of the CSW's white vaginal secretions touched or went over the bottom base of condom-protected penis.
Avatar m tn If you have a fever you may be getting the dizziness and tiredness from that and/or fighting off the infection and/or from the antibiotics. Some species of E. coli and E. faecalis can be resistant too but usually they can find antibiotics to treat both of these at this point. I can't answer the question about what is the risk of not getting treatment as I don't know if you have a wound or urinary tract infection or if it is just found on the surface of the penis.
Avatar m tn I was on 2 months of cipro ( not concecutively) Bactrum, 1 month of Doxycycline, 1 month of lavaquin- wouldn't these have cured the strep/ staph in my semen? I would think they would have correct? Why do you think after ejaculation the opening of my penis gets REAL RED/ inflammed- also have a constant leaking (a little) of urine- could this be what is causing the rdness/ irritation? And what the hell is causing the out of no where itchiness?
