I am male 19 years old and i’m experiencing pain when urinating and yellowish-green discharge. When i went to the doctor, i was diagnosed with ngu (non gonoccocal urethritis). I also tested negative for hiv. I only have one sexual partner and she told me she had bacterial vaginosis and vulvovaginosis, but she’s infection free now.

The discharge lessened but symptoms didn’t completely disappear. I don’t know what to do anymore, the medications don’t help. Can my ngu even lead to hiv or aids? Help, thank you.

HIV is not a complication for ngu but recurrence is..
it seems that the medicines are not working. if oral anti biotic tablets are not working then you should start on iv antibiotics. it is less likely that ngu may turn into a hiv or aids unless you get very low on immunity and get a exposure to hiv partner.
NGU GENERALLY DOESNT LEAD TO HIV OR AIDS UNLESS IT IS INCOMPLETELY TREATED. IF MEDICINES ARENT HELPING YOU,THEN YOU SHOULD GET A SECOND OPINION AND CHANGE THE DRUGS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TAKING.
It is less likely that ngu may lead to hiv. Unless you are exposed to hiv source in a unprotected fashion.there are no chances of hiv in ur case. U need to start on higher antibiotics
