Having sex while taking metronidazole

Common Questions and Answers about Having sex while taking metronidazole


Avatar n tn Its been about three week since I have not been taking the medicine, but we have been having sex the whole time, and I have not been taking any kind of other protection. My period has not come on yet, and its already the end of the month and I have not has a period yet. I took a test like two weeks after we last had sex, but I was not pregnant. Do you think that I need to take another one? Should I be worried!!!
Avatar f tn What risk do I run if my condition is left untreated until April, when I'm scheduled to return home. I masturbated and had protected sex while taking the antibiotics. Is that significant? Thank you for your time and help.
Avatar f tn So, my understanding was not to have sex the entire week of taking the pills. After taking my last antibiotic, the next day I had sex, and my boyfriend ejaculated inside me. I have been taking my BC pill (been taking for last year) every day as usual even during the time of the antibiotics. I checked my calendar and we had sex the day of my ovulation. I looked online later and everyone says that you shouldn't have sex during the antibiotics AND one week after.
Avatar m tn I have only tried having intercourse like once or twice a month since November 2008 while all this was going on and every time I had pain, burning and some bleeding, bright red. So I have not tried having sex since I started this latest treatment and am hoping through some miracle at the end of the treatment I will have no pain, no problems. This is everything I can remember. Any other suggestions. I have scheduled my primary MD to take over my BC while I look for a new GYNO.
Avatar n tn I thought I was the only one having that problem. After my husband and I finish having sex I dont smell anything. But the day after it smell really really bad and I have try everything to get rid of the smell, but nothing seem to work. Even when I am work I smell myself and I OFTEN WONDER CAN ANYONE ELSE SMELL ME. That if so embarrassing to walk around smelling like that and wonder can someone else smell you. I hated it so bad that i wanted to stop having sex with my husband.
Avatar n tn I really love oral sex...how can i avoid not having yeast infection after sex...it will drive me crazy with oral sex..please comment about this..
Avatar n tn My boyfriend of 2 years, and I have been having sex for about a year and a half and ever since, I have had this intense burning after sex. We were both virgins, so we ruled out STD's. I've been to the drs countless times and they say that they can't find anything wrong or it could just be dryness. We've tried lubrication and that didn't seem to help either. When he enters me, there's a litttle bit of burning, but nothing horrible. It's after were done that it starts to BURN!
Avatar f tn Hello, I was diagonosed with the STD "trich" a few months ago at my schools infirmary. I took the 'Metronidazole" for treatment and the symptoms did not go away. After this scare i decided to go to my doctor's office at home for testing. The results came back positive for Chlamydia. I then was prescribed "Azithromycin" which I took and regertutated within 10 to 15 minutes after taking it.
Avatar n tn Almost a week and a half ago I was diagnosed with trich. I was given metronidazole 500 mg. it was 4 pills and took all in one dose. Completed that and waited til day 5 to have sex. After that I began having discharge and smile itchin or discomfort again. I went back to the dr and she stated it was still bacteria left from trich but trich was not present. So she gave me more metronidazole 500mg. But I am not taking 2 a day for 7 days. The irritation is almost unbarable.
Avatar f tn also don't have any sex while you are taking it either - bv increases your risk of acquiring a std if you don't have a partner who's std status you are aware of. fyi - you try to drink alcohol while on the medication, you will end up in the ER. it makes you extremely ill. you can treat bv while you have your period. don't use tampons when you have bv. they trap the bacteria up in you longer! grace bv can cause irritation that can cause some spotting.
Avatar f tn I've been battling BV for a while now, used metronidazole many times, but the symptoms never fully went away. In the meantime, got together with an old fling and had unprotected sex. About 3 weeks later, I got what I thought was UTI-burning while urinating / fever. Called my gyno, told him I got UTI, and without seeing me, he prescribed me antibiotics. The symptoms went away the next day. I felt the BV was coming back stronger ever since I hooked up with this guy, so went to see a new gyno.
397712 tn?1205178741 I was at my university's clinic yesterday shadowing and one of the NP's showed me a coupon for a probiotic named Florajen. The University of Miami and Harvard are having some lectures soon and they sent her a packet full of things, including this. It's a free month's supply of it and I'm going to try it out and see if it works.
Avatar n tn Hi, after an unprotected vaginal sex.. I developed burning sensation while passing urine. After visiting primary care doctor, he took the urine sample and gave me tablets for G/C. My G/C test came back negative. After taking those medicine, the symptoms were gone in 4-5 days. Again I started having itching and irritation in my penis along with pain in the base of penis. I noticed some minor swelling as well.
Avatar n tn This is an infection of the vagina ONLY, caused by disruption of normal vaginal bacteria. See your gynecologist for a script for metronidazole. DO NOT drink while taking this medication. It will clear it up in a week and shouldn't give you a rebound yeast infection.
Avatar m tn I stopped having sex during treatment but have resumed protected sex when it was advisable. I'm not sure if I need to see a urologist? Do I not have sex even if protected? Please help! I really appreciate it.
Avatar n tn On 30 August 07 I was diagnosed with NGU...was provided a single dose of Zithromax (1 gram)...went back for a follow-up on 27 Sep (because I "thought" the symptoms were coming back)...the NGU was gone and negative results for Gonorrhea/Chlamydia. Just for precautionary measures I was provided a single dose of Metronidazole (2 gram) for trichomoniasis. My concern is: I went out and had about 7 beers...55 hours after taking the Metronidazole...
Avatar f tn The exact cause for the change in type of bacteria is still not known, but it is can be due to IUD’s,multiple sex partners or having intercourse with a new partner. In addition to unpleasant "fishy" vaginal odor, thin white or yellowish discharge from vagina may also be present. Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Treatment is by metronidazole and clindamycin.
1394684 tn?1280256585 I have not had any sex while I was in treatment.After treatment my doctor called me saying that my test results for chlamydia came back positive.She gave me zithromax(azithromycin) to take,two red pills I took in one single dose,After I lefted the office I experienced the worst diarrhea of my life hours later.Is zithroma 100% effective?Is my chlamydia gone?
Avatar n tn If this is the case, you should not be having sex while being treated for bv or drinking for that matter. You have to give your body a break during this time so that the medication can work. You're just going to keep irritating it. If I am mistaken and you aren't having sex but still smell the odor, then perhaps the gel isn't working and you have to go back to your doc. Just like with any infection, if you let things progress for too long they can and will spread to other parts of the body.
Avatar n tn FYI- My wife had a recurrent problem with Gardnerella and when she became a nurse practitioner and started working in Family Planning/OB/Gyn, she gave me a 10day 3xday treatment of Metronidazole while she did her 1 week 2xday after much research. And viola! She has never had a recurrence 15 years later. Bacteria need a host to reproduce and they need to be passed from organism to organism to continue to survive in this world.
Avatar f tn Last week I was diagnosed with BV after having unprotected (I have the copper IUD) intercourse with a new partner a couple of times. I was given a 7 day treatment of oral Metronidazole and about 5 days into taking this antibiotic I started itching and burning and had a white discharge so I assumed I had gotten a yeast infection since I know that is common with antibiotics and symptoms resembled my previous experiences with yeast.
Avatar m tn The day I took Zithromax SD i was not instructed properly so I took the medicine after food and then I took some ZinC + Vitamin C after one hour to two hour of taking the zithromax SD as I was having severe loose motion. After taking Zitromax SD for two days I was OK but the third day I developed the same irritation inside the penis. As I was taking all these medicines during the last two months my stomach is upset and all antibiotics are creating digestive problems.
Avatar m tn No discharge I visted the doctor a week after these symptoms started and told him about the Oral Sex, he told me that was low risk and said I probably had a UTI and prescribed me a weeks worth of cipro. My symptoms continued throughout the week while I was taking the meds.So I returned to the doctor on Mar 2 with symptoms still so I took an chlamydia gonorrhea test that came back negative.
Avatar n tn Doxy was given to you for the Nongonococcal Urethritis you cant transmit it by kissing or eating off the same plates etc as the infection was in your penis, if you did have gonorreah you transmit it through vaginal sex,anal sex and occasionally oral sex where it infects the receivers throat. good luck, hope everything clears up very soon for you.
Avatar f tn Until then, take the meds and try to stop having sex for a little while so both of you can have time to get rid of the bacteria!
1245078 tn?1268582322 Another thing you might want to try is to cut down on the sugar (and generally refined carbohydrates in your diet) because yeast feeds off that stuff. It's not a bad thing to hold off sex for a while (it *****, I know) but you should give yourself a chance to recover. Stress doen't help either of course, does it ever? Good luck! All I can tell you is, I was having the same problem for years until I was about 25 but I didn't have a single yeast infection for the past 7 years, so, don't despair!!
Avatar n tn my boifriend comes home on wed, i havent seen him over a yr in a half i want to be fine before havin sex wit him . i dont want to infect him . or reinfect myself .
Avatar f tn When I came down with Chlamydia, I had been monogamous with 1 girl for 4 months and had unprotected sex with her for 3 months. One night while having sex I noticed she had vaginal odor. 3 days later my symptoms began. I tested positive for Chlamydia, she tested positive for Bac Vaginosis but no STDs. She claims she's been monogamous. Is it possible she had Chlamydia and it took me this long (3 mos to get infected?
Avatar m tn i had unprotected sex about a month ago, in the last 2 weeks i have got symptoms of gonorrhoea. i am getting tested in 2 days and results take another 2 weeks to come back. i know if it is left untreated, it can cause serious complications. what is the time span on that? i am so worried and in severe pain. PLEASE HELP!
Avatar m tn Indeed, I did have anxiety over these but who wouldn't especially after having protected vaginal but unprotected oral sex than having contracted an std? Anyways, I just wanted a good reply from an experienced doctor in this field. I will leave this behind me...Again thanks.
