Can you be immune to chlamydia after multiple infection and treatments?

Don't count on it: Chlamydia is an infectious disease that does not enter your blood and or ever stimulate the immune system to give immunity.

If your affected with chlamydia can you spread it to your partner if You receive oral sex if so are there other treatments than antibiotics?

Maybe and no: Did you have a positive test for chlamydia or otherwise think you have it? If so, you should not be having sex at all until treated or cured. That said, chlamydia doesn't take well to the mouth and throat, and your partner probably wouldn't be infected. But it could happen and your partner should be examined and tested. Only antibiotics will clear chlamydia; there are no other treatments. ...Read more

7-10 days: The standard treatments clear the infection in 1-2 days, but symptoms take longer to clear up. Discharge or painful urination usuallly start improving within 2 days, can take 7-10 days to be gone entirely. If things aren't clearing up this soon, return to your doctor to be rechecked.

Burn at the tip of my penis what else can it be and is it serious? Had chlamydia three weeks ago been on three treatments did every test and came back negative what other possibilities are these

Burn at the tip of my penis what else can it be and is it serious? Had chlamydia three weeks ago been on three treatments did every test and came back negative what other possibilities are these

Yeast? Psych?: Already answered once. As discussed there, for sure it isn't chlamydia. Probably no STD at all. If I correctly recall, in your other question you said you tested negative for WBC in your urethra or urine, so probably no infection. Possibly yeast, esp if uncircumcised. Often this problem is psychological. Almost certainly not serious; you should resume sex with your regular partner if you have one. ...Read more

Gonorrhea and chlamydia came back, I am now wondering if the antibiotic treatments have failed or if I have something else?

Gonorrhea and chlamydia came back, I am now wondering if the antibiotic treatments have failed or if I have something else?

Reinfection: The most common reason an std returns is because someone re-infected you. Your same partner or a new partner. If you have gonorrhea and chlamydia, all of your partner (s) needs to complete antibiotics too. There are some cases of antibiotic resistant gonorrhea, but those aren't widespread yet. Make sure that on your retreatment, both you and your partner (s) complete entire antibiotic therapy! ...Read more

If 1g of azithromycin clears up chlamydia up but not all the way what other treatments should II try? Or should I get more grams of azithromycin?

Your doctor can retest you to see if you still have chlamydia, or any new infections. If necessary, he or she will give you the appropriate antibiotics. ...Read more

Hello, Recently I have been diagnosed with chlamydia and I have been given 1 gr of Azithromycin 11 hours ago. My question is how likely to get chlamydia back if you had used the open package of lube before you get the threatment and after?

Not likely: Chlamydia should not be living in a tube of personal lubricant. Many things are possible in life, but getting chlamydia this way would be very unlikely. If the infection recurs, there is likely another reason for the recurrence. ...Read more
