Not chlamydia: Chlamydia does not cause prostatitis or other prostate gland problems. And doxycycline is very reliable against chlamydia, with no known treatment failures in persons who took the drug as directed for a week. If you have been sexually active and possibly at risk, it might be reasonable for you to be retested for chlamydia. But your infection 5 years ago isn't a worry for your prostate.
