Men's health and culture

Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and culture


Avatar n tn Diagnostic tests that may be performed include Urinalysis, Urine culture, X-rays of the kidneys, Cystoscopy, IVP, Abdominal ultrasound and CT scan of the abdomen. The treatment will depend on the cause of the blood in the urine. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn If a bloke is single then whatever, but if he's with someone who clearly states they don't agree with porn and it DAMAGES their confidence and mental health, yes he should stop, or say he can't, and leave.
Avatar m tn After going to a second doctor and getting a follow up to my urine and sperm culture which both came out clean, my doctor says it's prostatocystitis and that it maybe chronic, she got me trough another antibiotic course for 2 weeks that somewhat relieved my symptoms. I suspended my treatment for about a week to get another set of tests ordered by my doctor and as i expected, pain is coming back and that foul smell with it.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.

709949 tn?1230010384 I've seen specialists (Urologist) and have undergone multiple urine/semen culture testing for gonorrhoeae, chlamydia all of which have been negative/not detected. i've laso been treated with multiple antibiotics (Amoxicillin and zithromycin) but they did not cure my symptoms. my case is unusual in that sometimes there's no discharge at all and other times discharge is mild to moderate and frequent with slight burn sensation at tip of penis when passing urine.
Avatar f tn You can sue him for Alimony, and Child Support, and all the debts incurred in getting you mental health counseling. Get a job that will help you to save up money to make a move, if this becomes your choice. Then get your own place. As for your daughter. She is not guilty of your husband's behavior. She did not cause it and she doesn't deserve to have to pay that price, just because she is his baby. She is every bit your daughter too, and she needs her Mama more than you can imagine.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
1963551 tn?1325604592 When I was in the hospital he had went on one of his destroying the house episodes, doing horrible things, throwing away my medicine, pictures, taking the mattress outside, before he left he cut the water hose and electirical hoses on the dryer and washing machine and flooded the house..He stayed in a hotel for 2 weeks and I told him he had to get help..just couldn't do this anymore. He called and said bye and I found out from his parents that he is in a rehab but he cant write or call..
Avatar n tn I went to the ER and the doctor tested my urine for a urinary tract infection. That came back negative. He then took a culture from my urethra for Clamydia and Gon., which came back negative. A few days later I went to an STD clinic as the pain was still there and repeated all the tests which came back negative. The pain went away a week or two later. Now for the last three months I have had the mild burning sensation at the head of my penis come back.
393893 tn?1283554830 I know with bladder infections there is pain and alot of the time when you feel like you have to go and try, either nothing comes out or only a few drops. I've posted this in the Men's Health forum as well so sorry if you've already read this. He is wondering if he should get his prostate checked? Thank you in advance for any help!
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn i only transfered 1 five day blast and im 11weeks preggo! i had some mild cramps about 4 day after the transfer and i started doing hpt at 5 dp transfer. it was + and got darker every day! how many days past transfer are you and are you going to test with htp? i could not stand it. a girl that i met at my clinic and she did the same as me on the same days as me did not test + till 2 days before beta. let me know.
Avatar m tn I went to the doctors about a week after and had an STD test done for chlamydia and gonnorhea and the results came back negative. The symptoms persisted so I went back in and they tested me again two days after I got the results for the first test. I aired concerns about NGU and a possible UTI, they did another urinalysis and dip test and both came back negative with no signs of bacteria.
Avatar n tn My blood test is also normal. The semen and urine culture also came back without any growth. None of the anti-virals and anti-bactierials worked for me. The scrotal ultrasound revealed mild epididymitis and mild hydrocele. This confirmed that I don't have CPPS. I'm not able to conclude whether it is because of an injury or some infection. Though I'm monogamous for nearly 10 years now, I had one stupid foolish encounter with another guy, though I'm not a gay.
Avatar m tn I accidentally posted this in the Men's Health forum so I am reposting it here. Last Friday, I woke up and when I urinated, it was brownish. No pain during urination. Seemed to clear up. Saturday morning, the same thing happened but it never cleared up. I went to the ER Saturday night. The doc checked my urine and there was blood. Gross hematuria. He also said there was borderline leukocytes. He ran a bunch of blood work which came back normal. He thought it was from a urinary tract infection.
Avatar n tn I went to an urgent care dr two days later and he gave me a 250mg shot and put me on fagyl and doxy.Its been 3 days since my second go round, still same feeling of needing to pee, slight clear discharge when i squeeze my penis...yellowish stain in underwear .One of the woman was from the navy n had been to se asia.Question 1.Have there been any reports of drug resisant gonno. reported in the states yet.2.Is there a possibility that my own immune system will eventually put and end to my misery.
Avatar m tn Do you still think I need a culture? You are right in that neither of us have been tested before - and because of the time that has elapsed, I am so confused for an explanation. Certainly the bout of toncilitis which knocked my immune system was probably the worst I've had - and am now considering having the tonsils removed. Its just explaining it. And - even though these other encounters were way in the past, I somehow still feel ashamed etc.
Avatar m tn For the past 2 and half weeks, I've been taking a probiotic (acidopholous pills, 3 billion culture per pill), and I just started taking concentrated garlic extract pills last week. I've also been avoiding excessive sugar intake, which I do on a normal basis anyways. For the past year or so I've been using perfume and dye free detergent, and wearing 100% cotton underwear. I exercise 5--6 times per week for an hour each time, but shower and dry quickly after. I'm sincerely concerned.
Avatar f tn No answers. I have extreme uncomfortability and my skin is raw and irritated and so sensitive to touch. It looks scaley and gets red at the foreskn and the tip especially. Its almost as if doctors don't take you seriously when you tell them this has effected your life completely and you are no longer the same person. I can barely get around sometimes walking hurts so bad when my penis hits my underwear I feel like I'm seeing stars.
Avatar m tn And it also is true that some cases of NGU that are so acquired probably carry little or no health risk for affected men's other (regular) sex partners. However, there are no definitive data on this; we're dealing with a situation that has never been formally studied, and you'll not I said "probable" and "probably". I cannot guarantee that your wife is not at risk for a significant health outcome.
2132141 tn?1335681674 You having Group B strep does not mean you got it from your fiance, Group B can exist in both men's and women's digestive tracts and intestines, and sometimes it pops up and other times it does not. You could have had it for a long time, and also, you could give it to her and not the other way around. She should get tested for it.
Avatar n tn Have you tried posting in our men's health or urology forum? Its not an std, so its beyond the scope of this forum.
Avatar f tn Is there any possibility (and I know this may sound STUPID) that I had a bacterial infection (like staph or something) and then her aggressive culture-getting skills (this is just a family practice doc) managed to collect nerve cells? If so, could those nerve cells have HSV-1 in them (like, dormant or whatever) that was then isolated? I'm NOT trying to un-do my diagnosis here. No matter what, if I take a blood test, it will be positive (remember, I've had oral HSV-1 most of my life).
Avatar n tn I took a shot of 2400000 units of Procainic Penicillin, which had no effect. After the above, Thayer-Martin culture for Neisseria Gonorrhoeae and direct immunofluorescence for Chlamydia trachomatis. Both results negative. Took zithromax 500, 2 pills together and another the next day. The discharge cleared up within a few days. I have felt tingling and stinging sensations after. Girl A said she went to see a gynecologist and took tests for Neisser. and Chlam, everything OK.
Avatar n tn It was a DNA probe test. Doc took a culture and sent it to the lab. He said he noticed white blood cells under the microscope, which obviously is signs of infection. Tests came back negative. He treated me as if I had Chlamydia with antibiotics, and said it was likely I had a false negative test. How likely is that?? Had the same situation happen 4 yrs ago after tested...and it was also negative.
86075 tn?1238118691 Knievel's death was confirmed by his granddaughter, Krysten Knievel. He had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs. Knievel had undergone a liver transplant in 1999 after nearly dying of hepatitis C, likely contracted through a blood transfusion after one of his bone-shattering spills.
Avatar n tn Hello again to anyone here, I did a urine sample analysis at an urgent care clinic and the results came back as no GC/CT, the urinalysis came back as normal and the urine culture test came back as no growth and what not. My question is prior to taking this test, I used the bathroom early in the morning and ate breakfast. Before submitting my sample I had to drink a bit there at the lab just to even go.
Avatar n tn It would be of interest to know exactly what test was used, and also some details about your symptoms. If you had a positive culture for HSV, the diagnosis probably is solid. But certain other tests are unreliable, especially examination of scrapings under the microscope, called a "Tzanck test". You might check with your GP about it. If there is any doubt, then a repeat blood test should be done in 3 months, with the expectation it will have turned positive.
Avatar n tn Generally speaking, is it to do with the person's health, immune system, genetics and/or some other factor(s)? 3. What is your opinion of women getting a chlamydia swab while on their period and how often does it happen in your clinics? 4. If the study ( is true that 9 out of 19 people got rid of their chlamydia after taking trimethoprim, is it likely that the antibiotic I took might have gotten rid of a hypothetical infection in me?
