Pelvic Inflammatory Disease And Azithromycin For Gonorrhea

Jan 6, 2016

Hi, I was treated yesterday night with 2 grams of azithromycin for gonorrhea (25 year old female). Didn't have any symptoms, but knew a sexual partner had it. Couldn't take the shot because of a bleeding problem I have. I have pain in my back today. Can this be associated with PID? I was exposed 10 days ago. Going for a follow up in 10 days to make sure the pills worked, should I worry before then? Or give the meds some time to work? I went to the clinic yesterday so I can't run off from work today to ask them.

Chills, Nausea, Constant Pelvic Pain - Pelvic Inflammatory Disease?

A little background information about myself: 23 y/o female, diagnosed with PCOS at 19, suffer from multiple UTIs and kidney infections each year.

Starting in about September, intercourse would be incredibly uncomfortable and painful, causing me to cramp severely after and bleed. These symptoms became worse and worse, and I began spotting between my periods. So, after meeting with my GYN in October and her suspecting cervicitis (inflamed cervix), I had an appointment beginning of December for a colposcopy and cervical biopsy. Upon touching my cervix with a q-tip it bled out and was EXTREMELY sore to touch. Waiting on further consultation from the results, but according to my GP: pre cervical cancer cells, uterine lining infection and cervical infection.

I have now been on 2 rounds of different antibiotics with no improvement, I believe I am getting worse. Ever since the biopsy, I have bled EVERY DAY FOR SEVEN WEEKS! I have a fever that comes and goes, chills, nausea, constant pelvic pain and am extremely tired all the time.

I have been researching (bad idea I know) what could be causing all these symptoms and am thinking PID or uterine fibroids? Any advice out there?!

Chlamydia Before Pelvic Inflammatory Disease? Fertility?

I'm 21 and I've been having irregular periods since June 2014; in recent months have had increasingly painful pelvic pain. Went to the GP multiple times in an attempt to figure it out but got nothing. Finally went to the GUM clinic on saturday and was diagnosed with PID, although the cause is as yet unknown. I was told it is likely due to a 'long-standing chlamydia infection'. Thing is, I haven't had sexual contact with anyone since March 2014 and for the year up to that I was in a committed relationship. That guy was the only one I had 'unprotected' sex with (was on pill); everyone else before him I used a condom with. So I had no idea I was even remotely at risk (as stupidly trusted this guy) and I'm now worried that because of this and having no symptoms, that I might've had the infection for a while without knowing and it therefore have a worse effect on my ovaries etc.

I'm really worried as dr was pretty casual about the PID, but from what I've read it's really serious. Did anyone here have chlamydia for a while before PID? Do you know how you got it? And how has PID affected your sex life/fertility since diagnosis? I'm so scared I'm going to find out I'm infertile because someone I trusted did this to me when I was so so careful myself

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - Ciprofloxacin And Metronidazole - Still Pain

I was diagnosed with PID last week Monday. The ultrasound scan revealed prominent collection of fluid behind my uterus. I was told to do a HVS/MCS. The result showed scanty growth of Escherichia coli. Before this result came out, I started treatment with ciprofloxacin and metronidazole IV for 4 days with pain killers. Follow up with drugs to complete 10days. I still have sever pain in my legs,lower abdomen and lower back. I had an ovary removed last year August because I had ovarian cyst. Please I need help. It's been 2 weeks plus now in pains. I'm tired of this pain.

Undiagnosed Pelvic Inflammatory Disease For 5 Years - Infertility?

When I was 16 I was forced into having oral sex with someone that I went on a date with. I am now almost 21 years old and have only ever had intercourse or any other sexual encounter with my fiance. For the past years I have had problems with my periods and pain during them, but never thought twice about it. I went to the doctor yesterday for a possible UTI and found out that I may have PID. Though I have yet to be diagnosed with an STD (labs are still out), I am assuming that Chlamydia is the case, given to me from the guy who forced me to have oral with him (seeing as how he probably had many interactions with other girls if he did something like that to me.) I am now TERRIFIED that I have had this disease for almost five years. I am getting married in just 3 weeks and am now afraid that I won't be able to have children... What are the chances of this if I have in fact had this disease for this long?

Crohn's Disease :: Indicative Inflammatory Bowel Disease

I am a 24 year old who works a 12 hour rotating shift pattern (including night shifts). For the past 6 months or maybe more o have had upper left abdominal pain (cramping/aching) and more recently lower pain (sometimes across lower, sometimes left and sometimes a specific place on the lower right). I put it down to IBS due to shift work. My partner convinced me to see the GP as I have a family history of IBD. Oh and my bowel movements vary from constipated (less than once a week) to lose (not diarrhoea and multiple times per day)

Had stool tests and blood tests. I expected them not to find anything to be honest and just did it to please my boyfriend and put his mind at rest.

Doctor phoned and said that "the stool test shows signs of inflammation indicative of inflammatory bowel disease". I couldn't really ask more questions because of where I was. Phoned in for blood results and told by reception that they were fine.

I have been referred to the gastroenterologist and have an appointment in 2 weeks.

I am tired all the time and find it really difficult to get out of bed, frequently have naps at work but put that down to shift working.

I don't want to take any laxatives because I never know when it will change between constipation and loose stools and when I'm working, I often can't get to the toilet.

I often have joint pain but I also have a knee injury and some hyper mobile joints.

I am so confused as to what is going on and hate not being in control of my body. I know I only have mild symptoms, I feel so alone (shift work doesn't lend itself to meeting people regularly).

Bowel Disorders :: Inflammatory Disease And Anhidrosis

My 27 year old son began exhibiting symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease about 2 months ago. He had severe stomach pain and his food wouldn't digest for several days. A CAT scan showed an inflamed ileum. He went to a gastroenterologist who ran more tests and put him on prednisone. The inflammation went away and at the last followup visit the gastro dr. decided not to label my son with IBD yet unless the symptoms come back. My son noticed that, since his problem began 2 months ago, he no longer sweats. Early on, he would get dizzy and light headed at work (it was September and still warm)but he wasn't and still isn't sweating at all. He goes to the gym for a workout and 1/2 hour later his face is bright red and his head feels hot and prickly, but not one little drop of dampness happens anywhere on his body. Since both the inflammatory bowel/digestive problem and the anhidrosis started at the same time, I wonder if they are related, and if so, what disease does he have? He is beyond frustrated at this point because his digestive problems aren't gone completely, and he has days where he's exhausted waking up after a good night's sleep, and has minimal energy a lot of the time.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease? After Quitting Smoking

I stopped smoking 6 months ago and to be honest feel worse for it. Currently i am suffering from

UC and mouth ulcers. I have never suffered with mouth ulcers before and my bowel has been painful since stopping smoking. What i need to figure out is this: is it worth taking up smoking again or do i need to put up with abdominal pain, bloody diarrhoea, mucus and faecal incontinence and always

having to use pads. I am only 55 and feel like i am 85. I am beginning to think smoking is the lesser of the two evils!! Have read on many forums how people give up smoking and then suffer the indignities of UC. Is there any medical evidence on UC and stopping smoking? If not, why not?

Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Ulceration Of The Ileo-caecal Valve

GI Consultant has sent to my GP copied to me:

This patient had had a SeHCAT test as well as colonoscopy. The SeHCAT test is reassuringly normal showing no evidence of bile salt malabsorption. At colonoscopy there was ulceration of the ileo-caecal valve. I understand the terminal ileum and colonic mucosa appeared normal. Ileo-caecal valve biopsies shoe benign ulcer with focal cryptitis. There is no granulomata or other features diagnostic of inflammatory bowel disease. Other colonic biopsy show mild nonspecific chronic inflammation.

This taken together with his symptoms and the raised faecal calprotectin is highly suggestive of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Anal Bleeding, Fatigue And Tiredness

I have been having bleeding from my back passage, fatigue and tiredness for weeks and finally got to the doctor today. She told me that I had IBD and that she would arrange for an urgent referral for a colonoscopy (2 weeks). She also said that I should come back if the symptoms got worse in the mean time. I am anxious that I maybe underplayed the symptoms slightly. every time I go to the toilet (5 or 6 times per day) it is bright red and seems not to be getting better. Should I go back or is it fine to wait two weeks?

Tooth Abscess :: Clindamycin Or Azithromycin?

Last week my tooth started to act up so I went to see my Dentist the very next day. I started on a Azithromycin that same day. My tooth still really hurt by Sat. so I called him and he told me to finish that up but also called in a rx for Clindamycin in case I still needed a antibiotic. My question is, has anyone taken that med for a abscess. I have done a lot a research on it and I think it's the last med I would take! I already suffer from acid reflux and this med is really harsh on the stomach. Would like to know if anyone has used it and what if any side effects? Forgot to mention, the abscess is not completely gone.

Correlation Of HIV And Gonorrhea?

I was  recently diagnosed with Gonorrhea, the doctor gave me antibiotics. I was also got tested for HIV and the result was negative. But right now, I am terrified because CDC links gonorrhea and hiv co-infection. I don't exactly when I got the gonorrhea, but I believe maybe within 2 months only, and I got treated. My question is, was there a chance that I might have been exposed to HIV as well? assuming the person who gave me gonorrhea was also co-infected with HIV? I am very terrified now as the negative result I got from HIV was too soon, and the test might have not picked up. Please advise on this as I'm really scared. The past 3 months I only performed unprotected oral sex, no orgasm inside my mouth, but there could have been cuts and I didn't notice. I had done oral sex with different persons lately. What are the chances of me getting the HIV as well?

Advice On Chlamydia And Gonorrhea?

I have a girlfriend, about a month ago I had sex outside my relationship with an escort.  The condom broke. I was worried about chlamydia and gonorrhea immediately. Although I never got any kind of burning sensation or coloured discharge.

few days after the encounter I saw my GP and asked him for treatment, without testing. A positive test result cold potentially have devastating effect and word would get out believe it or not. So the doctor gave me a course of azithromycin for 5 days along with a course of doxycycline for a week.

Two weeks after that I found our that the medicine he gave me does not cure gonorrhea only chlamydia. Also at the same time I was told by my girlfriend that she thinks she has a yeast infection. to be on the safe side I treated her and myself again with cefixime 400 for 1 week and 1 gram of azithromycin on the first day followed by 500mg the second day.

We are now a week on from that treatment, and I still have doubts about myself. My girlfriend's "yeast infection" has cleared up almost completely. But for me I have a weird feeling in my penis, almost like a slight itchiness inside. Also I feel as if there is always a drop left that I need to squeeze out, and when I do squeeze it I get the teeniest drop of clear fluid that comes out, also my testicles feel itchy (not sure if this is related). At first I just thought it was my mind overthinking and me worrying that was doing this... but now I'm quite sure that things are not normal

I dont want this to ruin our relationship as we have two children together, and I need any treatment to happen in secret. I can get my hands on any medication that is required quite easily.

1- What do I do about myself? Is there any additional meds I need to take? Do I need the intramusclar injection of Ceftriaxone??

2- Do I need to do anything about my girlfriend? especially since I cant tell her what has happened for the sake of our kids!! Is she fine if she is symptom free? Could she be cured with the course of antibiotics I gave her?  Please note she also took anti fungal meds at the same time.

Would really appreciate any advice I could get.
