I have a few questions about PIDS: Pelvic Inflammatory

I have a few questions about PIDS: Pelvic Inflammatory DiseaseMy wife may have had chlamydia for an unknown amount of time.I definitely did and was treated in February.I *think* I was exposed in January. But I am not sure. It's possible I was exposed earlier - maybe as early as September.My wife tested negative for chlamydia in February.But in late December she was on antibiotics (doxycycline) for a week because of a cold. So it's possible I had chlamydia earlier and then she had it - but she cleared the infection in December from the antibiotics.So here's the important questions1. If she did have chlamydia and it turned into PIDS - would the antibiotics that cleared the chlamydia also clear the PIDS? Or would the PIDS remain and continue to get worse and worse?2. How is PIDS diagnosed? If she goes to a gynecologist what should they look for?

I went to Urgent Care yesterday with burning, itching

I went to Urgent Care yesterday with burning, itching vagina. I had already used an over the counter 1 day yeast infection insert. White blood cell count elevated and Dr. confirmed looked like yeast infection. I am concerned about STD exposure as my partner of 13 years was just caught cheating. The discharge was chunky brown and was prescribed pink pill for yeast infection and Flagyl. I haven;'t seen very much improvement and other test results are not back. Dr. swabbed vagina and sent off, not sure what he tested for. I have taken 4 of antibiotics so far and 1 of yeast pills. Any recomendations or ideas of what could be going on? I am so worried.JA: In general, how has your health been lately?Customer: Very tired and fighting a cough for several weeks. I work around young children and just chalked it up to fighting off their germs.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I have had a complete hysterectomy. I have a cyst on my liver. I have chronic acid reflux and take antacids frequently.

I have a question about what the chances are that I've

I have a question about what the chances are that I've contracted ghonerrea or chlamydia from receiving unprotected fellatio from a girl who works at a "relaxation center". The incident happened exactly 9 days ago. I got tested for ghonerrea and chlamydia and syphallis at 4 days. The results all came back negative.I don't have any discharge and I've had no burning when i urinate, but my testicles do feel kind of heavy today and yesterday.Would it have likely shown up on my test that I took at 4 days? Based on the situation and what I've said, what are the odds that I've contracted one of these STI's?

I have been getting this intermittent tingling sensation on

I have been getting this intermittent tingling sensation on my labia in one particular spot for about four or five days now. It comes on sometimes once a minute, sometimes once every 10 minutes, and it feels like it's kind of lightly vibrating for about 5 seconds and then it stops. I have no lesions except one ingrown hair a few inches away from this spot, little to no itching (any itching is caused by my hair growing back after shaving) and there is no pain really. It's just the tingling. Please help! it's so annoying and I'm just scared it's herpes.
