Hi there,

Thanks for your question. If I don't respond immediately, it is because I am either in the OR or traveling. I will get back to you ASAP.

We're you ever treated with antibiotics for STDs?

im not sure i u have asked me if i have ever got antibiotics for stds? NO
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 5 years ago.
If you have never received antibiotics for STDs, then I would recommend that you just be treated with ceftriaxone and azithromycin to cover for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Even if your testing for STDs was negative, testing can oftentimes be negative even if you actually do have this infection. This is why we just usually go ahead and treat for STDs regardless of what your tests show. I would recommend that you go back to your urologist to discuss this option. Hope this helps.

ok and im also scared of having some kind of HPV. is this something i shouldnt be worry about. or what is the difference btween having HPV or gonorrhea and chlamydia.
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 5 years ago.
HPV causes genital warts, not the symptoms you have. I don't think you have to worry about HPV

thanks for you help. last question in my mind is that why discharge started just couple weeks ago but i had unprotected sex last june? does gonorrhea and chlamydia couse weakness in muscles or body? and just for my satisifcation is it easy to cure these diseases.
i would really appriciate if u could explain little better and i will accept your answer after that. thanks
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 5 years ago.
I can't explain why the discharge just started. It is possible it may not be related to these STDs and it just may be prostatitis instead. These STDs should not cause weakness of the body. Any of these diseases are easily cured once you have the proper cultures done and are started on antibiotics.
