Avatar n tn However, there is still some germs and bacteria which they said is also considered std. I ask them and they cant give me the name of he std. Quite a complete of silence in the room. i was given metronidazole 200mg to be taken 3 times daily. anothererythromycin 250mg to be taken 2 tablets 4 times daily. All these to be complete in 2 weeks times before another swab test. What kind of std normally are diagnose to be incorporated with these two medicine?
Avatar f tn 75% vaginal gel to use for BV and was also given fluconazole. I had a swab test done for chlamydia and gonorrhea 10 days after I finished the metronidazole and took the last fluconazole. My question is, can metronidazole vaginal gel and fluconazole affect the results of an STI swab? My results came back negative for both but I am worried if this is an accurate test or if the meds could have made it a false negative? Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn The treatment you have both received would reliably cure gonorrhea, chlamydia (and its counterpoint in men, NGU), and trichomonas. I'm troubled however that you say that this treatment was given "in case of...". The diagnosis of STIs should be guided by test results and clinical findings. Have either you or your partner been tested? and if so, what were the test results. Further, since it sounds as though you do not have signs of infection, can you tell me what the Dr.
Avatar m tn itching in groins and in anus, burning and irritation after peeing are 60% resolved. However, now I am having bladder discomfort and pain , urine urgency, irritation & pain after peeing (dysuria). In addition constant dull constant ache in right lateral side just above bladder (possibly) ureter. I am at a place where no NAAT test are available except simple urine RE and culture. The symptomatic treatment is only option for me.
Avatar m tn i researched on what green semen mean and there were only few informations i found and they said green semen means gonorrhea. i plan to take azithromycin 2g single dose later on this day or tom, and if nothing happens maybe this is trichomonas.. could it be? if it is, metronidazole will be the appropiate pill i have to take. i hope it will work. i only had sexual intercourse with three ladies in my 23 years living in this world.
Avatar n tn By the time they got my results they closed and I went to another doctor the first clinic never sent my records so I was treated for Chimed and Gonorrhea and a bacterial infection b/c he didn't believe that I had Gonorrhea he told me I would be in alot of pain. I did later found out that the test showed me positive for Gonorrhea. The issue is that my boyfriend and I have unprotected oral and vaginal sex and he got tested twice and has nothing.
Avatar n tn She sent the sample out for analysis for gonorrhea and chlamydia and also for culture. Should I have also requested a swab? She gave my Cipro, 500 mg for 3 days. You think Cipro is a good choice? Are the concerns about drug resistance valid? My other concern is there anything else I could have missed? Is it possible (5 days post exposure) that this is truly just irritation from abrasion and not what I'm afraid it might be? Wouldn't the penis have healed in this time?
Avatar m tn What would be a possible course of treatment for the Metronidazole-resistant Trich? I read, that perhaps Tinidazole would be the next choice of drug? If yes, what dosage should be effective? Question 5: I tried to comb through the net to find anything about after how much time the symptoms of Trich should start disappearing when treated with drugs? (Non of the countless sites mention that at all). Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Avatar f tn It is recommended that those who are given the diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis and are then told they also have Chlamydia and Gonorrhea when they are low-risk (ie. have (-) partner and are in a monogamous relationship) should request a culture test. The tx for BV is metronidazole, an antibiotic that DOES NOT kill gc/chlamydia. If the culture is negative it's because you never had it, not bc the medication erradicated it. I know because it happened to me.
Avatar m tn They took a urine sample, no physical exam, and assuming i had them, just treated me for gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas. 1 shot of rochepin, 1000 mg of azithromycin, 2500 mg metronidazole. Well my questions are, its now been 4 days and symptoms aren't gone, ive had diarrhea since friday night, and now i have a rash on my anus. Does any of this sound like STDs, also im not gay so i have no idea whats up with the rash, and i'm pretty sure im having diarrhea from the antibiotics.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know what the cure rate of ceftriaxone 250 mg injection is for treating gonorrhea? Or the 400 mg pill of cifixime? I have been having issues for 5 months now and I have taken every antibiotic known to man and I am still having issues. Male Symptoms: Urethral pain " that comes and goes" occasional skanty clear discharge. Test taken: Gonorrhea and Chlamydia Clean but had take ammoxicilin days prior to test "False negative???
Avatar n tn It took some time to discover that it was BV. I was tested for gonorrhea and it was negative. However, i guessed i wasn't tested for chlamydia but my doctor prescribed me doxycicline for 8 days, twice a day, and my boyfriend took it too. So, I guess I can conclude I don't have any of those now. I got better but I never felt really good. Now I have some cramps in the left side that last just a few seconds and I'm worried this can be PID due to STD.
Avatar f tn I went to a walk in clinic but after an exam they sent me to the ER. There they ruled out Trich and the doctor said he suspected gonorrhea or chlamydia or both. I was sent home with two weeks worth of metronidazole, doxycycline and a few days of hydros. I was also given an antibiotic injection. The gonorrhea/chlamydia results wouldn't be back until Friday. I never heard the results of this not of the bloodwork they ran. I was told to follow up in a week with my OB/GYN.
Avatar f tn 2 days after that I was put on a 7 day course of Metronidazole for a tooth infection. About a week after the pills I started to get itchy and sore down below plus lots of abdominal pain so I went for a std test. I had finished the course of pills for about a week before the test. Would the Metronidazole have effected the results???? As I am now feeling bad down below again!!
Avatar n tn I'm sure it will be negative for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Keep working with your doctor and/or a urologist, but try not to worry so much. When all is said and done, this is an inconvenience but not an important health threat.
Avatar n tn Thanks to both of you. I read a lot of these posts and you guys are so helpful. I'm taking metronidazole 500mg for the BV for 7 days. I took the azithromycin on the evening of the 16th. I have to mention that today the discharge is almost nonexistant, whereas before it was obscene. My partner lives in another state, as soon as I received my results I told him to seek treatment. I have another question. I missed my period which is very, very unusual.
Avatar f tn Welcome to the STD forum. I am very skeptical you had urethral gonorrhea and even more so about gonorrhea of the eye. "Process of elimination" is an invalid diagnostic criterion, largely because the large majority of gonorrhea would respond to the treatments used for chlamydia. (The trichomonas treatment made no difference.

Avatar n tn Could it be disseminated gonorrhea, and if so, how do you get tested for that? Would Metronidazole temporarily kill a cervical gonnorrhea infection? I am so confused. It seems it is something new or different, but I can't get anyone to believe me. How do I get the doctors to run more tests, and what other tests can we get to finally get this diagnosed?
Avatar f tn I called my old doctor's office to get those test results from December of 2011 and find out I had tested positive for GONORRHEA! Questions... 1. How was I infected this long with no noticeable symptoms? 2. If the Metronidazole took the foul smelling discharge away, how come it never returned if I have gonorrhea? 3. Where are symptoms of PID? I've had it before and was in great pain. 4. What long term problems am I at risk for if I had this disease unknowingly for a year?
Avatar m tn and they prescribe me with two medicine one is levoflaxcin (lexzin) 750mg need to take 1pill for 10days and the other one is metronidazole (flagex) 500mg need to take 4pills/day for 5days... getting paranoid here if my std is worst or which stage is it? should i get a test after taking the medicine? and which test should i take...
Avatar n tn I went on my own that same day to a lab to have a urine screen done for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. On 11-5-08, I went back to my Doctor about the discharge, pain during urination and redness around my uretha. He cultured it and said that shouldn't be from herpes. He cultured it with a swab to send off to the lab (no results back yet). I asked about it also being Trichomoniasis and he said he would prescribe something to take care of it all.
Avatar m tn Can you say something about your sexual lifestyle and relationships, recent new partners, sex or partners, and so on? Also, were tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia not done before you started treatment? Based on the information provided so far, I doubt you have gonorrhea, which usually causes more prominent urethral discharge than you have described. Instead of squeezing out a very small amount, gonorrhea usually causes profuse yellow pus dripping from the penis.
Avatar f tn It can take a couple of courses of medication to totally get rid of it and often if you are having vaginal sex, this can pass back and forth between you and your partner and your partner also needs antibiotics.
Avatar m tn now we went to another doctor just to find out that the medications we took are not the drugs for chlamydia and gonorrhea so she gave us cefixime, ceftriaxone, and azytromycin, still she has the symptoms and im asymptomatic. what should i do to help her.
Avatar n tn In the beginning of May I experinced some usual vaginal discharge and itchiness and I went to the doctor and I was told I had Bacterial Vaginosis and was given Metrogel 0.
Avatar n tn Question is of course whether it is still gonorrhea an NGU. Again, if it's still there and I have been given all medication available, will I have to live with gonorrhea until the end of my life (assuming no new effective antibiotics are introduced) or will it eventually go away all by itself?

My results came back negative for both but I am worried if this is an accurate test or if the meds could have made it a false negative? Thank you in advance.
Avatar m tn This time the medication did nothing, no change in symptoms, UA + Swab test came back negative for both Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. Urine culture showed no growth of bacteria. I went back to the clinic and got treated with a single dose of metronidazole. Symptoms cleared up for 4 days or so, and now itching is back and has been for about a week. Itching comes and goes, it burns when I urinate or ejaculate, no discharge except for very small amount of clear discharge.
Avatar f tn Then 1 day later she called and said I had tested positive for both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Is there any chance that the BV could have interferred with the test and triggered a false positive? I get tested every year and have never tested + for an STD before but have had several yeast infections. Is it easy to miss Chlamydia or Gonorrhea in a swab test or Urine test? My partner assures me that he has been tested in the last year as well and did not test positive for anything.
