I go for annual sti/std tests. My tests in August all came back negative. I had no symptoms at the time.
I saw a high end escort about 2 weeks ago. Unprotected oral, protected vaginal, kissing.
5 days ago, burning sensation when I urinate. Takes five seconds instead of 1 second to commence to urinate. Redness around urethra opening and hole appears larger than normal. No discharge.
4 days ago I go see the doctor. UTI test - negative. Herpies swap around redness area (negative), Urine test (72 hours to get results), negative for chlamydia and gon. Was given Zithromax - 4 tablets of 250mg to take with food (at once) 4 days ago as doctor said likely Chlamydia.
Still have symptoms. Doctor says not an STI or STD. Very unlikely a false negative. He says I am not the first he has seen with this recently.
Any idea what this could be? What is the possibility of a false negative?
If one of the doctors could comments about possibility of other STDs.View Thread
I found out from an STD expert on another board that this was likely nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) due to adenovirus or to herpes simplex virus (HSV),
I saw 2 different doctors and a urologist. They said not likely herpes but not sure what was causing the symptoms.
My symptoms started to disappear by around day 8 to 10. I am almost 95% better but if adenovirus could take 21 days to completely heal.
No test available in my city for adenorvirus - so 100% sure that was the cause. However, based on my review of medical journals, it appears that my symptoms were similar to other cases caused by adenovirus. Hope that helps.
