How To Cure Chlamydia Without Going To The Doctor
I've been diagnosed with chlamydia, and the doctor prescribed azitromicin, saying afterwards it will be totally cured. Can that be true?
Yes: Azithromycin is highly effective in the treatment of chlamydia, although there are no guarantees in life. Hopefully you have been tested for other stds since the person who has one often has more than one. Check HIV and syphilis in particular. Your doctor knows what they are doing. Good luck and get better. ...Read more

Get Treated: It is urgent that you get treated asap. Zithromax 1000 mg or 1 gm is one of the recommended treatments. The sooner you get treated, the less chance of causing permanent scarring of your follapian tubes which in turn can cause infertility. Also, your partner should also be checked and preferably treated. ...Read more
Hello doctor I have a quick question I was diagnoised with chlamydia back in july then I was told in august I was cured. Does it live in your stomach?
Probably not, but...: This is an insightful question. Once in a while genital or rectal chlamydia is found in women with no recent exposure. One theory is that past chlamydial infection may sometimes persist in the intestinal tract despite treatment. But if this happens, it is uncommon. If your were treated as recommended with doxycycline or azithromycin and negative test later, you can be confident you were cured. ...Read more

Refer by doctor my RHO (D)factor is + after semen test. I have had chlamydia 18 yrs & 1 yr treatment failure to cure it. Pls clarify the meaning RHO (D) +?
RH D Antigen +: All the cells in your body have signposts on them that identify them as belonging to you. The RH D factor is one of these signposts. If you are RH D positive, you have nothing to worry about. If the RH D is negative, you would need to have a medication called Rhogam to protect future pregnancies. But since you are RH D positive, you do not need this medication. Best wishes! ...Read more
How long does it take for the treatment to cure it 100% and how long do we have to wait to have sex again? Ok my girlfriend was told that she had an early case of chlamydia, and her doctor gave her the antibiotics to get treated. She took them last wedne
You: You should not have sex until 7 days after you both were treated. If you both were treated with the single dose antibiotic last wednesday, then you can have sex again this wednesday without fear of re-infection. If you were on the 10 day course of antibiotics, then you have to wait 7 days from when you finished the antibiotics. Below, I linked to a website from the center for disease control that gives more in-depth information about chlamydia. ...Read more

Vaginal swab: Any doctor's office or clinic can easily test for chlamydia; see your primary care provider. The best test in women is a simple vaginal swab, which often is collected by the patient herself. It's quick, simple, and painless. If you think you're at risk, do it ASAP: every day's delay risks compications like fallopian tube infection and future infertility. Good luck! ...Read more

Depends: I'm assuming that you were tested for chlamydia and it came back positive, you were untreated for this chlamydia and then you had another test for chlamydia and it came back negative? This seems very unusual. It's common for women with chlamydia to not know they have it, but I haven't heard of it spontaneously going away. The 2nd test could have been a false negative. Check with your doctor. ...Read more
Try OTC pain meds: If the pain you are experiencing is just minor and not causing you severe abdominal or pelvic discomfort try using over the counter (OTC) pain medication such as aleve or tylenol (acetaminophen).

Is there a way to know for sure if you have chlamydia or not? I have no way of getting to a doctor.
If no doctor...: If young and single, especially a teen, there is no requirement for sex. Again, sex is not mandatory, in most cases. Avoiding sex avoids chlamydia. Thus we hope there was only one "partner" and sex was recent. The partner gets tested for STD's and if positive, she gets treated and she can get a second prescription for her partner's chlamydia (partner treatment may not be allowed in some states). ...Read more
What symptoms would a person have to have in order for a doctor to tell they have had chlamydia for a long time?
Can be asymptomatic: You can have chlamydial infection in the absence of any symptoms. This can easily be tested for by your doctor.

Will the doctor retest you again before delivery if you've already been tested positive for Chlamydia after you've been treated for it?
Maybe, maybe not: Most doctors would do this routinely, but not necessarily. But why are you asking here? Speak with your doctor! Even if she didn't plan on retesting, I'm sure she'll do it if you're concerned and tell her so. Best wishes for a safe delivery and healthy baby! ...Read more
Partner and I treated for chlamydia. Doctor said no sex until follow up 4 weeks. After 10 days we had protected sex. Are we at risk for reinfection?

This is unreadable and there is too much lost in translation. First, we cannot know the mind set of your physician and so cannot comment on their work. Second we do not have the full history or the knowledge of the standards of care for your problem there.
