These are professionals who look at your problem, not you. All the best. Keep the area clean in the shower 1-2 times a day. Your doctor may also choose to put you on an antibiotic. ...Read more

Chlamydia &gonorrhea; got shotfor BV & 1 dose 4 pills of azithromycin.sex 6 days after treatment & got Bartholin cyst- am I still contagious/infected?
Stop sex, see MD: The shot (probably ceftriaxone) was for gonorrhea, not BV. Bartholin gland infection can be caused by gonorrhea, chlamydia, BV bacteria, and others. You shouldn't be having sex with these problems until all symptoms cleared up. Return to your doctor for re-evaluation and probably additional antibiotics(s). Partner also needs treatment if not yet done. Good luck! ...Read more

I have diabetes and therefor i have recurring yeast infections, can that cause a bartholin gland cyst abscess?
No: You don't create the infection as much as you catch it & pass it on. Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection/disease that is pre-existing and passed from sexual partner to sexual partner unless antibiotics are given or a condom is worn. That's why regardless of whether the female is taking a birth control pill or not, we always recommend that the male partner wear a condom each & every time. ...Read more
Get confirmed/meds: This is a STD that may or may not travel with other STD's at the same encounter.

There are several antibiotic preparations that can cure it & some other STD's. Many family planning, community clinics provide treatment services if access is a problem ...Read more
No: Impotence (erectile dysfunction) is pretty common regardless of whether you have an infection or not. I'm not aware of any link between sexually transmitted diseases and ed. However, I can picture a situation where one develops ed after having caught a std. Why? Because you're afraid to catch another one. But aside from that fear, infection doesn't cause ed. Ps always wear a condom to lower risk. ...Read more
My friend was prescribed Zithromax for suspected Chlamydia infection and he was then prescribed another gram when treatment failed. Is this normal?
Hard to say: One of the primary reasons for treatment failure is the wrong diagnosis which led to ineffective treatment. You say "suspected"chlamydia". This agent shares symptoms with other germs, and retreating the wrong condition with an otherwise effective med is odd. I would want to confirm the diagnosis. Another possibility is continued exposure to an untreated partner with re-infection. ...Read more
Sexual transmitted: Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease. Both men and women can get this disease.

If an old chlamydia infection went unknown/untreated, would it definitely lead to PID and infertility?
Maybe: Infertility due to damage to the fallopian tubes and or pid are possible outcomes for chlamydia. Whether it would always happen is unclear.

In which condition a pregnant woman can pass chlamydia infection to her unborn child even in caesar case?
Ruptured membranes: Chlamydia passes by direct contact, so if your bag of waters broke before you went into labor or the amniotic sac actually got infected by the bacteria (less common), then the infection could be transmitted to the baby even with a c-section delivery. Best to get the chlamydia treated, document cure, and treat partners to prevent re-infection. ...Read more
