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

Also, your partner should also be checked and preferably treated. ...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

My doctor told me chlamydia was gone even though it was untreated. How is this possible?

My doctor told me chlamydia was gone even though it was untreated. How is this possible?

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
