Urine infection confusion

Common Questions and Answers about Urine infection confusion


Avatar m tn I recently was diagnosed with chlamydia, I took three tests and they were all positive. Two were urine DNA tests and one was a swab. My husband took one urine test and it came back negative. I haven't been with anyone except my husband for the past 3 years and I had 2 negative tests for chlamydia since we have been together. I do not believe that he has cheated on me and I know for a fact that I didn't cheat on him.
Avatar f tn Said I was dehydrated anyway. ER ran labs and CT scan and said it was gastroenteritis. I also had a catheter and bladder infection while in hospital for stent and told ER doc that I still felt a little irritation but no discharge. He said my urine was clear and the irritation could be yeast since I was on a high amount of antibiotics. He did a pelvic and said it looked fine. After being on anti-nausea drip and fluids, I was released from ER.
Avatar f tn Came back again a little later, after sex, but this urine came back negative for infection. After the second or third UTI, I had a weeks worth of nitrofurantoin. I was then tested for infection. Nothing again, nothing grew from the culture. I had a full urinalysis, and a Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea exam. Again negative, and this was 4 months into the relationship, so would have been picked up..
Avatar m tn I have had annual STI screenings for the last three years - and all tests have come up clear - until two weeks ago, when a (urine) test for Chlamydia came up positive. All other tests negative (Syph, Gon, Hep ABC, HIV, HSV1+2). I have had only one regular female partner in all this time (who has made no complaint of vaginal discomfort), though i have also received perhaps half a dozen hand jobs at a massage parlor over the last twelve months.
Avatar m tn I had a full std panel done, including a chlamydia test using the urine amplification method two weeks after the encounter. All tests came back negative. I've shown no symptoms, except for a slight burning feeling post-urination. It is not a real burn, just discomfort mostly. I realize that it could be from other factors going on with my health or hypersensitivity to my penis right now. I'm not sure.
Avatar m tn His opinion is that a very large percentage of the population has this infection and it makes up the normal flora in most men and women even stating that in all likelihood he probably had it (I thought that was humorous). Anyway, he showed me an article from Johns Hopkins urology that encouraged no treatment for ureaplasma. He’s done numerous tests - both blood and urine and everything always comes back negative.
Avatar f tn About two weeks I went to urologist as I had both burning urine and ejaculation and felt perhaps I had prostatitis (as I had this in the past) or an STI. He subsequently ran a urine PCR tests, and everything came out negative for all STI’s except for HSV2 which came out positive. He did not run an HSV IGG or even IGM blood tests. What confused me more when I met him to discuss the results, he mentioned that I might have been exposed but not infected with the virus, which made no sense.
Avatar f tn The samples have been tested for bacteria/infection resulting in no infection found. An ultrasound of my kidneys (gall bladder, liver, pancreas, spleen and aorta) along with a urine cytology was negative as well. I do have constant lower back pain and just a general unwell feeling with no other symptoms. I am waiting on an appointment for an ultrasound of my bladder in two weeks. Could you please provide some insight as to what this might be.
Avatar f tn Do not presume that your mother has dementia. By what you write, there seems to be some other underlying medical issues. Confusion and forgetting things can happen when an older person has a urinary tract infection. My mother went completely "loopy" and it turned out to be a urine infection and pneumonia. You mother is falling over - this can be due to balance problems either from infections in the inner ears or spinal issues.
Avatar f tn Blood in urine or hematuria with burning pain while urinating, is usually a sign of infection. Infection can be in the kidney, bladder, ureters and urethra. Presence of blood and high protein in urine is an indication of renal impairment. I would suggest that you get a serum creatinine level and a check of 24 hour urine protein level to determine the exact level of protein and there by the level of damage to the kidney due to recurrent infections.
Avatar m tn Furthermore, symptoms of cystitis or bladder infection include cloudy or bloody urine; low fever; pain or burning with urination; pressure or cramping in the lower abdomen; and strong need to urinate often. Often in an elderly person, mental changes or confusion are the only signs of a possible urinary tract infection. Check with your doctor for proper management. Warm regards.
1285326 tn?1433024464 A bladder infection could make your penis sore due to the acidic urine. Make sure you drink plenty of water. Don't that that because you are going a lot to empty your bladder that you have to drink less. This is not so. When you have your appointment with the doctor, take a morning mid stream urine sample with you. The doctor's surgery will provide you with a sterilized urine specimen bottle for you to do your sample in. The morning sample is the strongest.
9062499 tn?1426957962 I'm 19+4 weeks. I have never had urine infection in my previous pregnancies. I have had it for the past 2 months and now for the past couple of days I'm really itchy down there. Just wanted to know is it itchy due to the urine infection? I have been prescribed antibiotics by the midwife to clear it up. Need to start them today.

Avatar m tn Doctor just diagnosed urine infection how long after taking co amoxiclav should I start to feel better
Avatar m tn How long does it take co amoxiclav to work on clearing a urine infection
Avatar f tn Im from uk. But surely the outcome would be the same i should have been given something. Last time i had a water infection it went onto my kidneys and caused me to bleed at 27 weeks. Im now 35 weeks so dont want that to happen again.

1549783 tn?1293993511 Hematuria (blood in the urine) is usually an indication of a bladder infection, a urinary tract infection, or a kidney stone. You said they performed a CT and everything looked "clear", correct? If the CT results were looked at by an untrained eye, a kidney stone could have been missed. Not all types of stones show up on film, and when they do, they appear as 'shadows' and can easily be mistaken for bowel gas. Have your results read by an actual urologist, not your PCP.
