In regards to chlamydia, if me and my partner both take the medication at the same time, how long before it will be gone. And when can we have sex?

In regards to chlamydia, if me and my partner both take the medication at the same time, how long before it will be gone. And when can we have sex?

About a week: The infection will be gone in a week or so. Ideally, you should avoid sex that long. Treatment failure is uncommon, but if it happens to one of you, the other would become infected when you resume sex together. On the other hand, this is unlikely. If you and your partner can't wait a week, for sure use condoms. ...Read more

Prescribed 1g of zithromax to be taken at once. Can I take I take 500mg first day, then 500mg the next day at the same time. Will it be just as effective to cure chlamydia?

No: The dose of zithromax (azithromycin) for chlamydia is 1 (one) gram all at once. Lower doses (even if they eventually total 1 gram) r insufficient to destroy the chlamydia organism & surviving bacteria may develop resistance to the drug. ...Read more

Could the single dose of zithromax cure chlamydia and PID at the same time?

Could the single dose of zithromax cure chlamydia and PID at the same time?

PID: No. PID is usually polymicrobial - more than one organism involved in infection. Zithromax only covers the Chlamydia. You also need an antibiotic that would cover Gonorrhoea, and some clinicians would also use Flagyl to cover for anaerobic organisms. Zithromax alone is not adequate for PID. ...Read more

I'm wondering can the single dose of zithromax cure chlamydia and PID at the same time?

PID: No. A single dose, 1 gram, of Azithromycin, is acceptable treatment for chlamydia. PID, however, is often polymicrobial - caused by more than one bacteria - and, as such, one needs other antibiotics, as well. PID is a serious infection and should be treated by your provider. ...Read more

I contracted chlamydia for a second time, can I take the same treatment from the first time? (100mg doxycycline, twice a day/7 days)

Me and my boyfriend got treated for chlamydia at the same time but 6 days after treatment he fingered me & I rubbed his penis could we be reinfected?

No risk, no worries: It is recommended that people with chlamydia avoid sex for at least a week. However, since the two of you were treated together, sex probably wouldn't be harmful -- and the sort of contact you describe definitely isn't a problem. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

In treating chlamydia and gonorrhea is it okay to take the cefixime one day and then azythromicin the next or does it need to be taken the same time?

Best together but...: ...cefixime is no longer recommended as the first choice for gonorrhea. It should be ceftriaxone (injection) plus azithromycin. Discuss with the doctor or clinic treating you. The drugs best taken together, although probably will work fine if taken 12-24 hours apart. Definitely no longer than that. But why not just do it right? They are well tolerated together, with no increased side effects. ...Read more

Here are some. ...: Congratulate for gaining access to timely medical care as described. Thus far, it would be most logical and beneficial to bring your ongoing concerns to the treating doctor so she/he may analyze what is going on in you and modify the Rx/ care/ counseling for now and future. Online inquiry for your condition would be less effective and may be confusion resulting in unnecessary anxiety. ...Read more

It: It is ok to take both, but you might want to give your stomach at least a 20 minute rest in between the Azithromycin dose and the Metronidazole dose. Both can cause stomach upset, so taking them together may make you feel pretty miserable. Taking them with food or milk can help. Good luck! And remember not to have unprotected sex for 7 days after treatment and make sure your partner has been treated, too to prevent reinfection. Good luck! ...Read more

Incomplete question!: Your question got cut off. Ask again, and remember we cannot see your previous question and you have a 150 character limit: be brief and concise. You got the proper treatment.

I got tested for chlamydia and it came back positive. Just had sex for the first time 2 weeks ago. Can I get tested for HIV as well? Too soon?

I got tested for chlamydia and it came back positive. Just had sex for the first time 2 weeks ago. Can I get tested for HIV as well? Too soon?

Depends: A positive test would be unlikely so soon and negative result would not rule out HIV. You should get a HIV nucleic acid test at about three months after exposure.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine.

I had an HIV test 11 weeks and 5 days after unprotected sex. Can I consider my negative conclusive? Done bcuz of chlamydia diagnoses in time frame.

Repeat it in 3 m...: After exposed to hiv-infected, HIV test should be repeated in 3 months if the initial test is done less than 3 months after exposure. So, repeat once in 3 months. If still in doubt, contact doctor for detailing...

Note: practicing healthy lifestyle without overindulgence and obsession will help anyone to live a long happy life. And remember: nothing is free but comes with a price.

For what length of time can chlamydia be left before you become infertile?

Hard to say: It is well known that stds such as chlamydia, especially in long standing infections, can lead to pid; however, pid ranges from subclinical and asymptomatic to severe, so it is impossible to give a time line because 1) many patients don't even realize they have pid and 2) the progression will depend on host immune system function. If you are concerned, you can be checked for active disease. ...Read more

Does chlamydia show in tests as soon as you become in contact with bacteria?

Tough question!: The test for chlamydia is simple. Most people can have the test carried out on a urine sample. Some people have a swab test (a small cotton bud). The swab is used to gently wipe the area where you might have chlamydia, to collect some cells. The cells are then tested for infection. The incubation period here is 1-3 weeks. Some (i dare say many) people never have symptoms though. ...Read more
