When were the tests taken?
Still waiting for the reports?
But the final report of the test is still awaited, isnt it?
Allright. Thanks for the valuable input. Well this is a symptom of urethritis (infection and inflammation of the urethra), which may extend upwrad to involve other parts of the genital tract as well, such as tests and other structures around it. Most of these infections are usually sexually acquired caused by a bacteria gonococcus, or at times other bacteria (non-gonococcal infections). The tests have been taken which is the right step to exactly identify the organism responsible for the infection; and this will also help find the antibiotic which will work best against the causative bug. Usually this is treated by means of single injection of ceftriaxone, or oral dose of cefixime, ciprofloxacin, Azithromycin.
No, at this point i wont say that this is life threatening; as this is a fairly common problem encountered by many people.
And very much treatable.
However, i would emphasize here to get an earliest possible consultation with your doctor so that the treatment is initiated (many a times emperically while awaiting the results).
Left untreated for long, a simple infection may cause complications.
Yes, this can be STD as i mentioned in my response earlier.
Drink fluids to dilute your urine. This will lessen the pain you feel when urinating.
Yes this can be.
But can be treated effectively as i mentioned earlier.
So stay relaxed.
But try to get back to your doctor ASAP.
I hope this clarifies and answers your question.
I think you did not get my last post. YES, this can be STD.
And can be cured effectively by the antibiotics i mentioned.
Kindest Regards XXXXX XXXXX luck.
Yes, this can be an STD and can be treated; you just need to get the treatment started by your doctor.
