Can a woman have chlamydia for 8 years and not know? Even though she is going through IVF treatments
Depends: If you've had a pap smear in the last 8 years, and you're sure they tested for chlamydia, and the test was negative, then it is a new issue. If you haven't been tested for chlamydia before, it's possible to carry it for that long without knowing.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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. Don't resume sex until at least 7 days have passed, all symptoms are gone, and your partner (s) have been treated.

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
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!
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?
See the doctor: Make sure you took all of your Azithromycin as directed. If you did, and you're still having symptoms, you could have been reinfected with chlamydia or have another different infection. 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.See 1 more doctor answer

Boy of 6 y: After15d of pain and failed cephalosporin treatment, the diagnosis is appendicitis (esbl) with abcess. An appendectomy is made. Good choice?
Potentially: If the diagnosis turns out correct, then appendicitis with an abscess is typically treated by appendectomy. Time will tell ultimately if is correct based upon the findings in surgery. I would discuss with the surgeon any concerns. A ct scan abdomen and pelvis would likely show that finding as well if it is correct.See 2 more doctor answers
How can I cure chlamydia im not sure I have it and I don't want to go to a doctors office but I think I do so please help me
Chlamydia: Chlamydia can only be cured with a prescription antibiotic, so you do need to see a doctor - and the sooner the better! Many people who have chlamydia are also infected with other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, so testing is very important for proper treatment. You may need multiple medications if you have multiple infections. If you are a woman and do not get tested and treated in a timely manner, the infection can spread to your uterus and fallopian tubes (called pelvic inflammatory disease) and can lead to severe illness and infertility. I've attached a website below with more information. Good luck!
Are you trying to: Self -treat or split meds with someone. The cdc recommends treating chlamydial infections with Azithromycin 1 g orally in a single dose.
Make sure: Usually the single dose is effective. It is also critical that any & every sexual partner of yours gets treated as well, and that you do not have unprotected intercourse with someone with the infection until both parties are treated. There are longer courses of treatment, usually a week of Doxycycline twice a day is very effective as well.
