Question Asked:

"Hi Doctor(s), I'm a youth copter serving in a remote area. After having unprotected sex (which I regret), I penis started discharging a creamy substance 3days later. Though there was mild occasional pains during urination, there were neither blood in the urine nor rashes on or around my penis. Because there was no Doctor around my locality I complained on this platform and a Doctor from here (KANGPE) recommended I carry out VRDL, URINALYSIS & URINE MCS. I sent my first morning urine (in a sterilized container) and my blood to the nearest laboratory. The HIV test was negative( though I was advised to repeat in 3months time), the URINALYSIS was ok too and the VRDL was negative. But the URINE MCS showed that I had a moderate growth of KLEBSIELLA SPECIES. Now the lab attendant said he consulted a Doctor who prescribed CEFTRIAZONE injection for 5days and CIPROFLOXACIN tabs for 5 to 10 days. Now I noticed that after the 1st injection, the discharge and pains seized! Though I continued and I'm taking my final injection today. I thank God I feel fine now. But the lab attendant /nurse said I should take another CIPROFLOXACIN tabs for 5 more days, making it 10days in total. Pls what do I do now that I'm fine? Should I take the CIPROFLOXACIN tabs for 5 more days or should I stop? Please pardon my long write-up. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...I SALUTE YOU ALL!"

    Hi good morning, we are glad to have your feedback. Yes please go ahead and complete your antibiotic dosage even though you are fine now. This is to prevent antibiotic resistance by the offending organism and ensure total clearance. be more careful next time. Thanks for choosing kangpe. cheers
