I was treated with tetracycline and my symptoms cleared up really quickly. I did have a new sexual partner 14 days before this happened. She had no symptoms, but I was given a prescription to give to her anyway. If I didn't have gonorrhea or chlamydia, what could explain the pain and discharge?
Gonorrhea and chlamydia are only two infections for which doctors commonly test. Luckily, the treatment for NGU covers many of these other organisms. Most women are asymptomatic and only know that they are carrying these bacteria or viruses when their sex partner has symptoms as you described.
