Does Multiple Sexual Partners Cause Chlamydia

If you have had several sexual partners is it possible for one of them not to contact chlamydia at all from you?
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. ...Read more
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? ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more

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?
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?
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. ...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.
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
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. ...Read more
Is it possible for you to get aids from having multiple sexual partners and none of them are infected?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

I had chlamydia and was treated for it but Preformed oral on new clean partner 4 days after meds. Only sexual contact we've made... Is he infected?
What was the treatment? Did you complete the prescribed course of treatment? If you have doubt you could get tested for chlamydia by the DNA test.

I recently tested positive for chlamydia after having just been treated for it. I was with one new partner since then, though he has not had any kind of unprotected sexual contact in 4 years. Is it possible he had it all this time and did not know, or is
Yes it is possible: When one person in a couple tests positive for a STD then best practice is for both people to be treated simultaneously. Otherwise you get ping-ponging where you go back and forth. ...Read more
I was treated for chlamydia 1 year ago and have continued to be sexually active. Would my partner now be infected if we are having unprotected sex?
Chlamydia Treatment: It is usually advised to be tested again after treatment to make sure you cleared your infection. But if you and your partner are symptom free then things are most likely just fine. ...Read more
If you have an eye infection caused from chlamydia or gonorrhea. Is there any chance you could have gotten it from some other way and not sexually?
Unlikely: Sexual transmission is the most common way by far for these infections, but any transfer of organisms from an infected person to another is possible by the fingers or innocent contact with a deposit of an infected person on an inert surface. These are all unlikely and the sexual transmission is the most probable cause for a given case. Of course a newborn can get it during birth. ...Read more
If a girl got chlamydia from only having sexual intercourse with her partner and performed oral sex to another person can he then get chlamydia?
Foul yellow discharge returning, already treated for chlamydia what is the cause? I've had no sexual contact. And my check up results were negative.
Recheck: Go back to doctor. Yeast (chlamydia) which you were treated for usually gives a white usually odorless discharge.Trichomonas (a protozoa) usually gives a frothy greenish yellow discharge with foul odor and itching. Bacterial vaginosis gives a thin milky fishy odor discharge. The treatment is not the same for all types so go to your gyn. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
Can Chlamydial Conjunctivitis caught through non sexual means cause a positive urine test for chlamydia?
Can chlamydia or gonorrhoea be transmitted if a dick got close to the vagina with an infected partner but sexual intercourse wasn't performed?
Very unlikely: Transmission in this circumstance is very unlikely, but there might be small risk if he ejaculated near the vagina. Maybe best to get tested if not done recently. Aside from this exposure, simply being in the same social group as someone with gonorrhea or chlamydia marks her or him at increased risk -- not necessarily from direct contact, but because social groups often also are sexual networks. ...Read more
Hi, so I tested positive for Chlamydia and was treated with Azithromycin 500mg on January 2, 2018 with my partner, but on January 3, 2018 I engaged in sexual intercourse and the condom broke. Am I and my partner infected again?
Chlamydia treatment: These symptoms go along with chlamydia. The recommended dose of azithromycin is 1 g, not 500 mg, which is not reliable. You should not be having sex at all; even with effective treatment, the infection may still be transmissible after onl a day. You and your partner both need to see a doctor or clinic for proper treatment. And no sex, even w/ condom, for the next week. ...Read more
Is it possible to be sexually active with someone for two months and not contract chlamydia from them?
Sure: It can depend on luck (or bad luck), how often a couple has sex, what activities they actually do during sex, etc... It's hard to know any exact numbers, but what probably happens is that the person with bad luck will catch it after 1 episode of sex, but a person with good luck might not catch it until 3 or 4 episodes of sex. ...Read more
No: People get chlamydia by having sex with someone who has the infection. “having sex” means anal, vaginal, or oral sex. Chlamydia can still be transmitted even if a man does not ejaculate. People who have had chlamydia and have been treated can get infected again if they have sex with an infected person. ...Read more
