How far back do you have to tell your sexual partners of a gonorrhea/chlamydia diagnosis? And is there anyway if I ve been in a monogamous relationship for the past 7 months that my boyfriend brought the disease into the relationship versus being unfaithful?

I traveled internationally two days back and the same night had a bout of vomiting (with lot of nausea and sweating) and loose motions. It was a one off event and no temperature. The nausea persisted in the morning. Doctor prescribed Ciprolaxacin (500 mg OD) plus dompeirdon and Zantac. This seems to give me palpitations (tachycardia). The doctor has now stopped Cipro and Zantac and gone for Cefixime. I looked up the net for adverse reactions of Cefixime and do not like them. I still have some nausea and dizziness. Also I have a history of very sensitive stomach (IBS). What to do?

I am in Guatemala and have a UTI, which has just been diagnosed although I've had it for a while, months at least, but not diagnosed.

The lab report reads se aislo mas de 100,000 UFC/ml DE: Enterobacter agglomerans
The lab report reads: isolated more than 100,000 CFU / ml of: Enterobacter agglomerans (google translate)

According to the report the bacteria is sensitive to cefixime and nitrofurantoin. It seems that I can get both but is one better than the other and I'm not sure of the dosage. I've been told at pharmacies from:400 mg. once a day for five days to 400 mg twice a day for 10 days.
