I think I have chlamydia. Which antibiotics can I buy to cure it...?

Azithro, doxy: You're in Ukraine, right? Get professionally evaluated if possible. Chlamydia, nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), and to some extent gonorrhea cause similar symptoms, and gonorrhea requires different treatment. The main treatments for chlamydia and NGU are azithromycin 1 gram, single dose; or doxycycline (or another tetracycline) for 7 days.

Do some women get rid of chlamydia on their own, or must everyone get antibiotics to cure it?

Do some women get rid of chlamydia on their own, or must everyone get antibiotics to cure it?

Need antibiotics: Not only do you need antibiotics to cure it but all partners you have had need to be treated. Left untreated chlamydia infections can lead to infertility due to scarring of the fallopian tubes. Also if not treated you will spread the infection to future partners. Males are often asymptomatic or only have brief symptoms of burning on urination. Untreated males will also spread the infection.

Does the metronidazole antibiotic cure BV and chlamydia?

Does the metronidazole antibiotic cure BV and chlamydia?

Not both: Metronidazole will often cure BV (bacterial vaginosis). It is ineffective against chlamydia. For this you will need a different antibiotic, such as azithromycin, doxycycline, eryhromycin, or uncommonly Levofloxacin and ofloxacin. See your clinician for an appropriate prescription.

How long is it supposed to it take for antibiotics to cure chlamydia in 38 week of pregnancy?

How long is it supposed to it take for antibiotics to cure chlamydia in 38 week of pregnancy?

ONE TO TWO WEEKS: After taking the full course of antibiotics like 2 gram of azithromycine it may take 1to2 weeks to clear the infection completely. If you deliver the baby before that the baby has increased risk of conjunctivitis and pneumonia even if delivered by c section and has to be promptly treated for that. Before you resume sex your sexual partner also needs to be treated for it.

Hi iam on antibiotics for chlamydia and I had sex only one time with my boyfriend with a condom on can I still be cured?

Hi iam on antibiotics for chlamydia and I had sex only one time with my boyfriend with a condom on can I still be cured?

Depends: Has he also been treated? It takes a while for the med to kill off the germ and condoms are not a 100% guarantee it won't pass back and forth. You need to both be treated at the same time and hope that cures it before it impairs your fertility.

You: You should not have sex until 7 days after you both were treated. If you both were treated with the single dose antibiotic last wednesday, then you can have sex again this wednesday without fear of re-infection. If you were on the 10 day course of antibiotics, then you have to wait 7 days from when you finished the antibiotics. Below, I linked to a website from the center for disease control that gives more in-depth information about chlamydia.

When I had chlamydia, if I would have had PID would this have been cured with the same antibiotic I took to treat chlamydia? Azithromycin?

When I had chlamydia, if I would have had PID would this have been cured with the same antibiotic I took to treat chlamydia? Azithromycin?

Azithro will cure it: Assuming you had no symptoms of PID (abdominal pain, fever, etc) then the standard treatment for chlamydia, such as a single dose of azithromycin, would cure you. All people with chlamydia should have a follow-up test in 3-4 months, which picks up both reinfection and rare treatment failures. But you needn't worry about PID. If in doubt, check with your local NHS GUM clinic for expert care.

Could I have cervicitis? In january I took antibiotics for chlamydia. I felt fine and cured but had some vaginal itchiness. (i did not have sex for two weeks and took a one dose prescription, so I followed everything correctly). I went in to get re-checke

You: You should definitely be reevaluated by your doctor. You could be dealing with a bacterial, or yeast infection, and possibly even an std that is causing irritation and bleeding of your vaginal mucosa (tissue). Also if there is a possibility that you are pregnant, please take a pregnancy test. Take care.

Not certain: Treatment for Chlamydia include single dose Zithromax or 7 day treatment with doxycline, Erythromycin or Amoxicillin. It is sometimes treated for 10 days. Were you and your partner not told to abstain from sex for 7 days?

Took azithromycin (1g in one go) against chlamydia 5 days ago. Discharge has been reduced and almost colorless, sting persists while urinating. Am I being cured or need more/different antibiotics?

Took azithromycin (1g in one go) against chlamydia 5 days ago. Discharge has been reduced and almost colorless, sting persists while urinating. Am I being cured or need more/different antibiotics?

Chlamydia: One gram of Azithromycin is usually all that is needed for chlamydia. However where there is one std, there can be others like gonorrhea. If you were specifically tested and only chlamydia was present, that is probably all that you need to do. The irritation can last up to a week to 10 days as you are healing for the infection. As long as you are doing a little better every day, you can wait.

Herpes?: This is too complex for a clear on this sort of forum. Keep working with your doctors. If not under the care of a genitourinary medicine (GUM) or infectious diseases specialist, that might be worthwhile. Also, make sure you were tested for herpes, which could cause such symptoms. Good luck!

I took azithromycin for chlamydia on sept 21st. On oct 13th I took a test of cure and it was still positive. Did I wait too soon to take the test? Why didn't the anti biotics work?

Abstnence: Abstinence and partner treatment eliminates failure. But azithro resistance bug possibility is there. See PMD for different and complete approach.
