Doxycycline for uti

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline for uti


Avatar m tn My question is what would be my next step after doxycycline? I know I took it every 12hrs give or take an hour somedays for the whole 7 days and I haven't had sex since. Can I catch it from my underpants. I use this to wipe up my seamen after masterbating, but obviously wash them before wearing them again, is it possible this is how I got reinfected. Or is it possible it's not chlamydia and something else?
Avatar m tn I was recently diagnosed with NGU and was prescribed doxycycline 100mg bid for 7 days. My physician said to abstain from sex until all the medication was gone. That is exactly what I did. I ended up having sex 4 to 5 hours after I took my last dose of doxycycline on day 7. Did I put my partner at risk by having sex so soon after treatment? Also, I took 13 out of the 14 pills. (I choked one of the pills back up and spit it out). Would that have an impact on the meds efficacy?
Avatar n tn I was given azithromycin, but after one week conditions persisted and the discharge got a little darker in color (was almost clear at first). On the second visit I was given doxycycline which I took for seven days. I thought symptoms were starting to get better (decreased discharge), but two full days after completing the treatment I still feel some warmth/tingling in the head of my penis and discharge seemed to be a little darker again this morning.
Avatar f tn I was just prescribed Doxycycline Hyclate 100mg tablets for Chlamydia, I received a 10 day supply for my partner and I. Can we have intercourse while taking the pills? If need be, we can use condoms, but it is okay to do so? Also, I am currently on Metronidazol 500mg for a UTI, is it okay to mix the two prescriptions?
Avatar f tn I never got a positive for the stds, the swabs were negative. The medication given to me, I was told, was doxycycline specifically for chlamydia as a precaution, and the other tablets were a high dose of something which treats I assume I am clear either way, what with negative swabs as well....but I think perhaps I have a secondary infection like thrush or something from the antibiotics?
1390055 tn?1365618655 But I'm not entirely sure, which is the reason of my posting. If you have been on Doxycycline for an STD or UTI, have any of you experienced anything like increased urination and output, dehydration, and increased thirst?
Avatar m tn Morning, 48 hours after rocephin shot and 5 days into doxycycline regimen, I noted discharge at my waking. Dysuria was the same as it has been for 6 days now. Discharge was thin, yellowish in color. If I had no discharge until this point, would this likely indicate a yeast infection instead? Isn't discharge usually early on in the timeline? Please advise. I'm dreading these results coming back.
Avatar n tn He told me that he dont pay attention to my bacteria, because the antibiogram says that it was 100,000 and the urologist treat after 500,000, so he told me that he just going to give me an antiinflamatory for the prostate, but when i see the medication, he gave me doxycycline and my antibiogram says that the bacteria has resistance to the tetracycline and im very scared to taking it, because it can increase the bacteria. he told me that take it and ejaculate every 3 days. but im very scared.
Avatar f tn I went back for a review with my other GP - GP A and she gave me Doxycycline for PID without running further checks. At that point, i forgot to ask for further confirmation checks nor did i manage to ask if my partner needs to be checked/treated as well. I started taking Doxycycline on the 11th and am on my 7/20 tablets. Do you think i can still take a STI test just to confirm my condition and for a peace of mind?
Avatar m tn The GP then tested me for STD and discovered chlamydia. I was given doxycycline for 7 days . Again, I had a yeast infection which cleared with clotrimazole. Three days after I ended the course of doxycycline, the burning sensation returned, worse than before. I was given doxycycline again, and again I had yeast infection. This time, the vaginal pain disappeared and it seemed the chlamydia was gone. Yet I was left with a very strong burning sensation in the urethra and maybe the bladder.
Avatar n tn I had to return to the GYN to have a colposcopy performed, and was put on doxycycline again for that procedure for two weeks. About a week later, I went back to the doc with back pain and frequent urination (but no burning) and they changed me to macrobid for a week. They said I didnt "grow anything weird", but I still had a UTI.
Avatar f tn The first was 4 months ago, i went to the urologist for a std test and it was negative for all std. He said it was just an uti and he gave me a doxycycline, it cured after 4 days. The second pain was the month after and i went to the doctor again but this time for a uti test, guess what the test i was negative for a uti. The doctor said i might having a std but im so tired to get tested. So she gave me the same antibiotic but i didnt took it. The pain was for 2 days only and it was gone.
Avatar m tn I was recently diagnosed with a UTI, I was prescribed Cipro for 10 days. by day 4 the discomfort was getting worse, itchy Urethra, rectal, pain, etc... I was prescribed Fluconazole for possible Yeast infection. The next day about halfway through the day I was in severe pain from the testicles up to my left flank. Saw my Doctors PA and they took a urine sample. Sample actually came back clean and I went home.
Avatar n tn So I went to Walgreens and picked up a trusty AZO UTI test kit. It tested positive ( I mean as purple as it can turn ) for Leu and 100% negative for Nitrate. So I called a friend of mine whos mom is a local doctor here where I live and she prescribed me to one capsule twice a day for 10 days of an antibiotic called Doxycycline. Its the afternoon of day 8 for me and I have been taking it once in the morning and once before bed.
Avatar m tn i went back to the hospital and after urinalysis,urethral swap, mp, wbc count,the doctor told me i was not having a measure problem but for a fear of infection and malaria.he prescribed ciprofloxacin quinine for 10days. while taking the drugs i was urinating at a rate of once in 2 hours but was relieving except for the constipation. bu after about 8 days all the symtoms came back . i perseviered and finished the treatment.
Avatar f tn After 4 days it still wasn't getting better so i went to the doctor. Since i had antibiotics in my system, the urine test came back negative for a uti. So the doctor gave me cipro to take for 7 days and told me she was going to send my urine off for culture. Well i have been on the cipro now for 3 days and it still hurts everytime i urinate. I'm really confused because i don't understand what else this could be. I have thought about STD's, but i am married and am monogamous on my part.
Avatar m tn The doctor treated treated me for everything that day because it would be several days before the results were in. Doxycycline 100mg for 7 days in case it was chlamydia or gonorrhea and a shot in the rump of something in case it was syphilis. I did tell her that I had taken an antibiotic and she acknowledged it. took 7 days to get the results back and everything was negative! YEAH!!!! I felt fine. 6 days after I finished the script symptoms started returning.
Avatar m tn 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. If I do have the UTI bit or Chlamydia, would her Doxy block it? Advice?
Avatar n tn Hi, Doctor has prescibed me Doxycycline 100 mg for UTI( urinary treat infection). I have doubt wther it will be effective to cure. could you pleae advice?
Avatar n tn I was told to continue Omnicef for 6 more days and doxycycline for another 3 weeks and then they will see. I will definitely print out your comments and see if I can have some of the test done.
Avatar m tn t=29492 Can't remember where I got the info for the misdiagnosis of veriocele for hernia and vice versa. Just do a search for yourself.
Avatar n tn In late October I got a UTI, no burning or stinging but pain in my lower stomach/bladder, tickling, sensitive clitoris after urination, feeling like I have to pee often, and just an uncomfortable feeling at times mostly during and after urination, but I waited a few months to go to the doctor, I know bad idea, but I thought that whatever I had would go away on it's own anyway I went and my urine was tested, and I was told it had blood and white blood cells in it, indicating an infection, my urin
Avatar m tn Anyway, like two months ago , I was also on doxycycline 100mg for 28 days for suspected prostatitis. Can you please kindly tell me from what I have described what could it be ? Could be a UTI or prostatitis or any other infection. Could it be the doxycycline I took tow months ago did not clear up the prostatitis and it is a recurrence happening now? Please kindly note that I have a pain during urination . My only symptoms are pain at ejaculation and there is no blood in my semen.
Avatar n tn Ten days ago I tested positive for Chlamydia, negative for Gonorrhea. My doctor gave me a ten day treatment of doxycycline. I have taken the medication as instructed, however, ten days later I am finished with the medication, but my itching and burning still remains. It is not as bad as it was when I went to the doctor, but it still remains. This worries me. Is this normal? What should I do? I have an apt. scheduled for next week, but I am worried in the interim.
Avatar f tn Three days later I got burning and constant urination. I started 100 mg doxycycline (big mistake) without taking any test. I then visited my go who put me on one week 250 my levofloxacin and pyridium. The pain did not go away. I visited. A urologist who conducted two rounds of blood and urine test- no infection. A week after doxy dosage I took a std test for gonorrhoea chlamydia and ureaplasma. All negative.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor (no stranger to a UTI) and was told I had bacteria in urine. They gave me cipro. One week later the symtoms returned and I had a small raw spot or soar on base of penis near bulb (red dot). I was give doxycycline no std tests were performed. I have also been dealing with thrush in my mouth and was given a fluconase tablet for if and when it returned. This weekend I started have a burning sensation in my scrotum and a tingling after urination in penis.
Avatar n tn So I called a friend of mine whos mom is a local doctor here where I live and she prescribed me to one 100mg capsule twice a day for 10 days of the antibiotic Doxycycline. Its the afternoon of the 10th day for me and I have been taking it once in the morning and once before bed.
Avatar m tn My urologist gave me Metronidaxole, Doxycycline were for any STD's or Prosatitis and also Cephalexin, I don't know what that was for? But he and my pcp said nothing in my body would live through these antibiotics, and I had the other tests too, now he and my pcp are baffled why I still have bladder and ureatha discomfort still. Should I go to the clinic again for more test after having 2 stds and a annual blood and urine test done, all in 1 month and still show negative?
Avatar m tn Doctors therefor subscribed me Doxycycline for 1 week which did not help at all. After that I got a 10 day treatment of Ciprofloxacin and the symptoms went away and everything was fine. After 1.5 Months later similar symptoms returned but instead of testicle pain it felt that it was more located in the left testicular tube. However the testicle is tender so I would suspect epididymitis. There was also a new symptom which was ear fullness every time i woke up in the morning.
Avatar m tn but after that i never feel any better every week i have a burning urethra inside the whole shaft and pain in my lower back and buttocks, after masturbating I feel better and comfortable, after a month i visited a urologist i didnt told about the sexual relationship, he did my blood and urine test ultrasound of kidney spleen and badder, few hours later all test were negetive and my organs are good, he told me that nothing to worry everything is fine and prescribed me doxycycline 100mg for 2 wee
