I entered into a monogamous (on my end for sure) relationship in March, 2015. We began having unprotected sex in mid-March. I had yellow urethral discharge on March 20th and was treated with my partner for gonorrhea and chlamydia with cefixime and azithromycin. We were not tested, just treated because we were leaving for a vacation that day. We were both symptom free for 5-6 weeks after treatment.
Five or six weeks later, during the last week of April my girlfriend had a foul odor from her vagina. She thought it was an e-coli-induced UTI (she is a med-tech and tested herself) and had a pelvic exam and found nothing abnormal. I don't think she was tested for STIs during the pelvic exam, but her pap smear came back normal. We live in the Philippines.
On May 8th I had urethral discharge again, and was again treated with azithromycin and cefixime, without testing. The symptoms did not fully go away. Pain in testicles, anal itching but no more discharge. On May 16th she had discharge and performed a gram stain on herself and found gonorrhea. I had multiple urinalysis' performed during this time and found nothing abnormal. I had no discharge at this time.
On May 17th we were treated a third time, this time with rocephin (injection) and azithromycin. On May 21st she had discharge again and I have pain in my testicles, though I have received two handjobs today.
Do you think we are dealing with a drug-resistant infection whose symptoms returned after 5-6 weeks or does this sound like a new infection from infidelity? I noticed the discharge only after becoming dehydrated, I normally drink a ton of water and may not have noticed discharge before. Can symptoms go away for 5-6 weeks and come back? It has been four days since the rocephin injection...do you think it worked and her discharge is from a yeast infection? Do we need more time to heal or should we return right away for treatment a fourth time?
