Can chlamydia be fully cured in men?

Can chlamydia be fully cured in men?

Yes, with correct Rx: Chlamydia is a fully curable bacterial disease, provided that the correct antibiotic is prescribed and that it is taken as directed, and you are not reinfected by the same partner again. That's a lot of ifs. If you have been treated but still experience symptoms, see your doctor again for a second evaluation. You may need a second course of antibiotics.

Can the mix of citromax and ceftriaxome cure chlamydia?

I think: You mean zithromax and ceftriaxone. Yes, the zithromax treats chlamydia, the Ceftriaxone is to treat gonorrhea. They are often both given, even if only one of the two infections is noted. Good luck!

Can you cure chlamydia with goldenseal pills, if so what's the dosage?

Not worth the risk: This herb has active ingredients that may have antibacterial qualities, but is not known to be effective in treating Chlamydia.It is easily killed by various prescription antibiotics. The disease can progress to the point it causes injury to Fallopian tubes, increases risk of life threatening ectopic pregnancy or sterility.Since reliable cure is possible with meds, herbs aren't worth the risk

I had chlamydia they gave me 6, pills and they gave my parter 1 pill? Why.? Is it because he a man? And would that one pill cure him?

I had chlamydia they gave me 6, pills and they gave my parter 1 pill? Why.? Is it because he a man? And would that one pill cure him?

6 pills same?: Actually to treat chlamydia you need 1g of azythromycin. 4 x 250mg of azithromycin. When treating chlamydia its a good idea to also treat gonorrhea concurrently. Your doctor may have treated you for both. Your partner may have received just 1g of Azithromycin and was not treated for gonorrhea!

Test pos. For chlamydia. Few months ago was clean, month after me my husband was neg. Had it before we together&cured it. How is it possible?

Test pos. For chlamydia. Few months ago was clean, month after me my husband was neg. Had it before we together&cured it. How is it possible?

Treatment: It's a little difficult to fully comprehend the timeline you describe. If I understand, you tested positive, were treated, and then a month later your husband was tested and was negative. It is a bacterial disease, so antibiotics will cure you. If one partner isn't treated, then possible to get re-infected if have sex with that partner who wasn't treated. Rephrase your question if I didn't answer
