Can I expose my partner with std after being on Cipro? - Online Doctor Chats
because there are many STDs where ciprofloxacin will not help
particularly the viral ones
Ok also does not urinating after sex increase the chance of uti?
Yes, urinating after sex can decrease the chances of contracting sexually transmitted diseases
particularly in males
not true for females
If I have been on doxcycline for 5 days and get tested in a week for std chances are it will be negative. I am on the docxcyline for enlarged prostate.
You should continue on doxycyclin and complete the course
Like I noted earlier was on cipro for 25 days prior and symptoms did not go away got worse. Doxcycline seems to be slowly working.
the enlarged prostate is unlikely to be due STD
in that case it seems to be Chlamydial infection
get yourself tested for STDs
Frequent urination is a symptom of enlarged prostate
could this just be timing? Pros titis?
It can be a contributing factor in making your symptoms worse
Seems like it
Get the STD test done
Stated earlier two days before being prescripted cipro had unprotected partner.
and also get a urine culture and sensitivity done
I do remember that
What is that for?
That is because, frequent urination can be caused by both enlarged prostate and urinary tract infection
And the bacteria may be resistant to ciprofloxacin
so if it is urinary infection, and the bacteria is resistant to cipro, doing a culture and sensitivity will help us to pick the right antibiotic
Ok so even doxcycline might not be right symptoms are slowly getting better but I think my anxiety isn't helping.
It is best to get a urine culture and sensitivity done before starting any medicines
and anxiety makes everything worse
Wonder why my mud didn't request those tests
Doctor not mud
I am not sure why he didn't
That is the standard
It is not logical to prescribe antibiotics without proper diagnosis and culture reports
should be avoided as much as possible
Do walk in clinics do these tests?
Ok thanks again for your time.
is there anything else ?
You are most welcome
have a good evening ahead
Thanks for consulting me
