Does Multiple Sexual Partners Cause Chlamydia
Can BV cause chlamydia? I am uncircumcised and I've had unprotected sex with girlfriend that had PV. We have no other sexual partners.
NO: BV is a different infection entirely. It used to be called gardnerella vaginalis. It is a mixed bacterial infection that results usually in a fishy discharge for the woman. While it is much more common in sexually active women, it is not an STD likely chlamydia.
Chlamydia is a curable sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis. This bacteria infects mucous membranes of the urethra, vagina, cervix, anus, rectum, eyelid, and throat. Chlamydia may be asymptomatic but some patients experience pain or burning during urination, nausea, fever, vaginal discharge, ...Read more
Chlamydia: May be transmitted between partners with one sexual contact.
If you have had several sexual partners is it possible for one of them not to contact chlamydia at all from you?
If condoms used.: Chlamydia is a ubiquitous bacterium spreading easily in sexual contact. Without barrier protection they will be passed on.
My partner&i have never had any other sexual partners before&been tested before. Now only one of us tested positive for chlamydia. How is that possible?
Someone has an STD: It is very hard to get a false positive. I am sorry to inform you but the one with chlamydia had to get this in a sexual encounter.
Diagnosed+treated for Chlamydia. Treatment over, I feel better. Want to get re-tested for future sexual partners. How many weeks should I wait?
Chlamydia re-test: It is very rare for the standard chlamydia treatments to fail (azithromycin 1 dose or doxycycline 7 days), and testing to check for cure usually isn't necessary. But if done, not before 3 weeks. Up til then, the test can still be positive due to persisting DNA, even though cured. It's more important to retest at 3-6 months, because reinfection is common once people resume sex.
I was treated for chlamydia over 6 months ago and given the all clear with two urine tests. Do I need to tell any future sexual partners about this?
Past Medical History: Nope. Not in any way. I am a bit surprised by this unusual question. You were treated and you were retested and do not have the infection any more. Why would you want to share that with anyone?
Yes someone: Has to give it to you and both of you need to be treated and recultured to make sure it is gone form both of you.
Is it possible for me (female) to have had chlamydia and not give it to one of my sexual partners? Unprotected sex. Had previously taken flagyll
Treated?: Sounds like you were treated now the problem is you can get re infected and then pass on to someone else. Use your precautions!See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Chlamydia is quite easy to pass & is commonly done so by women who may never know they have acquired the germ. Condoms provide some but not absolute protection. Males are more likely to be symptomatic but their irritation may ignored and subside over time. It is best to inform contacts that they may have picked up the germ. Treatment is easy & failure to treat can result in sterility or worse.
Inconclusive chlamydia swab result? Same sexual partner for 2 years, was tested 8 months ago and came back clear but this ones inconclusive?
Chlamydia: Does your partner have other sexual contacts? Are you symptomatic? Ask the doctor who tested you what this means. Results are variable and you may need retesting. There can be both false negatives and false positives.
I have been diagnosed with chlamydia. I have had the same sexual partner for over a year and neither of is have cheated. Why has it Been noticed now?
Low grade: Chlamydia can cause infection that is asymptomatic in women. You could have had this for quite a while and not known it. That is why we screen for it in certain age groups.
I have been taking minocycline 75mg twice daily for acne. I was recently told by a previous sexual partner that she has chlamydia. Should I worry?
Minocycline: As long as you have been taking Minocycline twice daily for a week, chlamydia should not be a problem.
Hi, so my boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years (my first sexual partner and my only) and just over a week ago, got tested positive for Chlamydia. She gave us both 4x 250mg Azithromycin's (single dose). We took them on the 18th of November, waite
Your question is???: You got it from an infected person who got it from an infected person. That's how STI's are spread. Taking a break for a while is reasonable. Having some good communication over the next several weeks is also important to move past this.See 2 more doctor answers
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.See 1 more doctor answer
1 sex partner. After initial sexual encounter fishy rectal odor, lip tingling. Tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia= negative? Fishy odor due to herpes?
Bacterial vaginosis: The fishy odor is usually due to an infection that is a mixture of many different bacteria, the common name is bacterial vaginosis, also call it bv. The causes are many, bringing bacteria from the rectum to the vagina. It is not classified as a std, but it can be transferred from one partner to the other. Women can develop this with out being sexually active, hence not a true std.
Is it possible for you to get aids from having multiple sexual partners and none of them are infected?
STDS: Five stds are potentially deadly, not just hiv. I try in my practice to have frank, open and honest conversations with my patients about the risks of stds. I want them to know which ones are of higher risk; which ones have a vaccine for; and how often to test when one is sexually active. Stds can, in general, be avoided with vaccinations and condoms. I feel that all sexual beings must know this.See 1 more doctor answer
I have an active sexual life and have multiple sexual partners. Is there a discreet way to get tested for stds?
Perhaps: Some state health services offer anonymous testing for hiv. If you see a physician and you have hiv, your physician may feel obligated to inform your sexual partners that they have had sex with someone who is HIV positive, but they are not allowed to name who that is. It's very important, though, to be tested for all std's for your health and for the health of your partners. Please use condoms.See 1 more doctor answer
