What options to i have to cure urethritis?

Doctor said it's a cronic urethritis, But there must be a Surgery? or a treatment? I haven't talked to my doctor yet! but i would like to hear others opinions

i have been like this since June 2007 and i been on Antibiotic this yeah twices and it's not working it leaves and comes back after 2 or 3 month.

No No- surgery would be the last thing you'd want- The first thing you need to do is investigate what could be causing it - Aside from the obvious infections, etc. Remeber that the uretha is very close to the vagina - and yes, overly active intercourse can be a cause (too much, too often, too hard, too oral) -You need to talk with your Dr., take a prolong course of antibiotics- and tone down or stop the activity, until you get the inflamation under control - This can be a painful condition which can also cause permanant scarring in the uretha, that you want to avoid.  (+ info)

Can two virgins get an STD that causes Urethritis?

Me and my gf have only been in sexual contact with one another. Recently she has picked up an STI and it looks like she now might have Urethritis. I had a history of thrush because of my hormones but i dont know if it could have caused this.
Could this of happened even though me and her have only ever had sex with eachother and no1 else? PLEASE HELP.

UTIs aren't necessarily caused by an STD.

Usually it's just from bacteria entering the urethra. We're more susceptible to that than guys, and it's so common when you first start having sex that it was often referred to years ago as "honeymoon cystitis."

It also tends to happen when you start having a lot of sex - particularly sex of the enthusiastic, vigorous, up all night, not-lubricated-enough variety - after a period of abstinence. Basically there's a bit of trauma inside, and lots of normal bacteria are getting moved around, and some of them seize the opportunity to start reproducing where they shouldn't. Before you know it you have a urinary tract infection.

It's always a good idea for girls to pee immediately after sex. Flushes the bacteria out. It's also a good idea to drink lots of water, and drink cranberry juice (which seems to discourage bacteria from reproducing in the urethra).

Otherwise, a UTI is uncomfortable but antibiotics clear it up. It's obviously a good idea to have these things checked out thoroughly (and treat it quickly) but that could well be all it is. People tend not to talk about these things, but it's pretty common.  (+ info)

How do u know when ure cured for urethritis?

I just found out i had urethritis.Doctor said it was probably STD related. My girlfriend never cheated on me. I heard douching can kill the good bacteria that fight away the infection and think thats how i got it because me and my girlfriend have had unprotected for almost 2 months. I was just put on Levaquin for 10 days. I've been on it for 5 days and my girlfriend and I had sex this morning. Can tell the infection isnt gone because when I tried it from the back it hurt. Is it ok to have sex while on the antibiotics? I can tell its going away because when i irinate it doesnt hurt.

Obviously if you have an STD, haven't finished out the meds to cure it, and have sex..your girlfriend now has the STD all over again. You MUST go back to the doctor, tell him/her what you have done and give you and your girlfriend each a new set of meds. This time do not have sex, even oral. It's ten days man, you can do it. good luck.  (+ info)

What is best treatment for gonococcal urethritis ?

In how many days at the latest should the treatment start to prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the body ?
In how many days does the effect of the treatment start to be felt ?
My first day treatment doesn't show improvement in my situation .
What is the best treatment for this ?

the ONLY treatment is antibiotics, and lots of water. Within 24 hours of starting antibiotics, the organism will not spread, within three days symptoms should be gone, but make sure you take ALL of the antibiotic as prescribed, or the organism comes back, and it comes back resistant to antibiotics and you have screwed yourself.  (+ info)

Does Sulfameth/trimethoprim treat non specific urethritis?

I was prescribed by my doctor sulfameth/trimethoprim for symptoms of non specific urethritis. I've been taking them for over a week now, and have no relief. I did some web searching of my symptoms and the medication, and I've gathered that I might be on the wrong meds. Should I be on something like doxycyline?

I had urethritis for two weeks untreated, will I get better eventually?

It took me going through four doctors to get a diagnosis and antibiotics. I fished my antibiotics (3 day) but am still a bit uncomfortable, although not as bad as before. I am so mad mad mad at the doctors. Can I expect to be healed anytime soon?

It can sometimes take a few more days to start feeling better although you were on the antibiotics for 3 days. However, I would recommend getting back in touch with your doctor to let them know that you are still having symptoms and that you would like to have a consultation with a urologist (a bladder specialist but they also deal with issues like this) to see what they think could be going on.  (+ info)

Sex after being treated for Chlamydia or Non-Specific Urethritis?

Friends been diagnosed with bacterial infection (Chlamydia or Non-Specific Urethritis). He was given the once off, four tables at once, treatment today. Wants to know how long he will have to wait till he can have full-protected sex? Some web pages say after 48 hrs but want to be sure before I tell him.

Treatment Overview
Chlamydia can be cured with antibiotics. The disease does not cause long-term problems if it is treated early. Untreated chlamydia can lead to many complications.

Treatment is recommended for:

People who have positive chlamydia tests.
Sex partners within the last 60 days of people diagnosed with chlamydia—even if they do not have symptoms.
Newborns of women who have chlamydia at the time of delivery.
It is important to not have sex for 7 days after treatment for chlamydia.

If you are treated for chlamydia and your sex partner is not, you will probably become infected again. Encourage your partner to get treated. Use condoms to lower the chance of reinfection.

What To Think About
Some people who have chlamydia may also have gonorrhea. In that case, treatment includes antibiotics that kill both chlamydia and gonorrhea. For more information, see the topic Gonorrhea.

Reinfection can occur. Symptoms that continue after treatment are probably caused by another chlamydia infection rather than treatment failure. To prevent reinfection, sex partners need to be evaluated and treated.

Repeated chlamydia infections increase the risk for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Even one infection can lead to PID without proper treatment. Make sure to take your antibiotics exactly as prescribed. Take the full course of medicine, even if you feel better in a couple of days.

Some health professionals recommend retesting 3 to 12 months after treatment to reduce the risk of complications from reinfection.3

If you have chlamydia, your health professional will send a report to the state health department. Your personal information is kept confidential. The health department may contact you about telling your sex partner or partners that they may need treatment  (+ info)

what medicines are used for Non-gonococcal urethritis other than?

Doxycyclines is there any herbs available for that?

You have NSU, nonspecific urethritis. You can try cranberry juice. But my advice would be to see a doctor and don't mess around with herbal remedies. Erythromycin.You could get permanent damage like strictures. Scar tissue that blocks the urethra and needs to be broken up by dilatation. You seriously don't want that.  (+ info)
