Help please. Could cypro (cyproheptadine) cure the STD chlamydia?

Help please. Could cypro (cyproheptadine) cure the STD chlamydia?

No: 'cypro' (cyproheptadine) is a drug that blocks the receptors for histamine and serotonin. It is commonly used to treat allergies. It does not have any activity against the organism that causes chlamydia. You may be confusing it with 'cipro' (ciprofloxacin), which is an antibiotic. Cipro does have some effect on chlamydia, though other antibiotics are used to treat it most often. ...Read more

I took zithromax to cure chlamydia but am not sure if I could be preg, my bf& I had unprotected sex after I got my IUD remove, before finding out std.?

Preg test, test cure: Zithromax is safe in pregnancy, and is used commonly both to treat chlamydia and for other infections. You and your partner should both be treated for chlamydia, practice safe sex, and get retested 2 weeks after treatment to make sure the chlamydia is gone. It is fine to wait for this 2-week follow-up appt to do a pregnancy test, or get one over-the-counter sooner if you've already missed a period. ...Read more

Recently I had anti chlamydia IgG positive and IgM negative. How is that so as I have never tested for STD before and hence never had any treatment?

Unreliable test: Chlamydia blood tests are not very reliable. Your result suggests possible past infection but none at present. Some positive tests are due not to chlamydia, but past infection with chlamydia-like bacteria that cause bronchitis. If you are being evaluated for infertility, your doctor might treat you with an anti-chlamydia antibiotic. Otherwise, probably nothing need be done. Discuss with doctor. ...Read more

If I am currently being treated for chlamydia and have had sex within the two weeks of treatment does it stop the cure? My sexual partner was yet to be treated for the std.

If I am currently being treated for chlamydia and have had sex within the two weeks of treatment does it stop the cure? My sexual partner was yet to be treated for the std.

The : The issue here is re-infection. If your partner has chlamydia and has not received treatment then he will likely pass it to you, and the antibiotics you took two weeks ago will not safeguard you from getting it again. Please see your doctor for repeat tesing and treatment if needed; also encourage your partner to do the same. You both should be free of infection before having sex again. Also consider using condoms to protect yourself against chlamydia and other std's. Best of luck. ...Read more
