I took 2 pills by mouth for one day to get rid of my chlamydia. Me and my boyfriend had sex on day 6. It's been 10 days now and I bled after sex. Why?

Infection: Having gotten chlamydia should be a big red flag that you should be using condoms. The bleeding you experienced most likely is the result of injury to your cervix, that was already friable from the chlamydial infection, healing at the time of intercourse. You are the only one that will protect you. Be smart and use condoms with each act of intercourse. ...Read more

Could Chlamydia be undetected in my girlfriend's mouth for almost 5 years?

Could Chlamydia be undetected in my girlfriend's mouth for almost 5 years?

Extremely unlikely: First, chlamydia infrequently infects the mouth or throat. Second, chlamydia is rarely if ever carried as long as 5 years. Almost all genital chlamydial infections clear up within a year, even without treatment. Have you had a lab test to diagnose chlamydia? Or only symptoms? Nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) can result from oral sex, but not caused by chlamydia. ...Read more

If someone have chlamydia of the mouth can it spread by kissing?

Very rare: Chlamydia transfer involves extensive exposure of mucosa to infected fluid; it would be hard to imagine kissing fervently enough to lead to transmission, but due to proximity, it is always possible. The vast majority of the time, transmission is by sexual contact. ...Read more

I was tested positive for chlamydia, I got treated but I slept with the person that gave it to me again. But I Do not have it in my mouth.............

Chlamydia: Unfortunately if your partner was not treated for Chlamydia, you may have just been re-exposed (depending on the exact nature of your contact) and you may have it again. The tricky thing about Chlamydia is that you don't always have symptoms, so I highly recommend you see a doctor for follow up. Chlamydia could cause longer term problems in women (fertility), so please do the right thing. ...Read more

I've recently gave someone oral sex and they told me they had chlamydia, do you think I've got it in the mouth? I've had no symptoms at all.

Probably not: While oral chlamydia can occur, it is uncommon, and oral to genital transmission is rare, if it happens at all. So your partner's chlamydia probably didn't come from you, assuming no vaginal or anal sex. Sometimes chlamydia is assumed based on symptoms, without actual testing. If your partner has nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), it could be from oral sex but nonchlamydial. ...Read more

Takes care of it all: Chlamydia doesn't easily infect the mouth or throat. It can happen, but uncommonly. The standard treatments (azithromycin or doxycycline) take care of infection anywhere in the body. If your throat is infected, it will be cured. ...Read more

Can chlamydia cause canker sores on the back of your mouth near your tonsils?

Can chlamydia cause canker sores on the back of your mouth near your tonsils?

Not likely: Chlamydia of the throat is more frequent than once thought, but still quite uncommon. When present, it almost always cause no symptoms at all -- no sore throat, no sores, nothing. For sure it would not cause ulcers (canker-like sores) in the throat. However, symptoms like this are typical for initial oral herpes, and for certain other non-STD viruses. See a doctor ASAP for diagnosis and maybe Rx. ...Read more
