Rectal symptoms: Rectal pain, pain on defecation, and rectal bleeding or discharge. Remember that some anal chlamydia, especially in gay men, is due to a type of chlamydia called lymphogranuloma venereum (lgv), which requires a longer course of treatment than standard chlamydia. Not all labs can tell the difference.

A 23-year-old female asked:

I have chlamydia and suspect I may have pid, will the zithromax prescribed cure PID if I have it, or do I need to go back to the doctor to be checked?

Go back: It's a good start but adding an injection of antibiotics and additional coverage would be wise and get you feeling better more quickly if it is pid. A pelvic exam and culture should be performed.
