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.

So, realistically, it may be harder to prove it's merit if your job has no exposure to spiders. Most places are clear of these insects. ...Read more
