Be brave: And to be brave, act brave. Every young adult with a romantic life should be tested yearly for HIV. The worst that can happen is that you'll take medications and keep it under control. Knowing one way or the other is better than this being scared stuff. I'll bet you're fine. Best wishes. ...Read more

Me+partner treated for chlamydia now I have a dark colored urine pain in lower back pain in low abominals and a brown discharge. Dnt use condoms help?

Retest: I would schedule a visit and ask to be retested for chlamydia. Perhaps you have it again. You can also have your urine tested for a bladder infection. You can also discuss your birth control options to help prevent an unplanned pregnancy. You can also ask for HIV testing. This is important after your chlamydia infection. Use condoms. ...Read more

Me and my bf both got treated for chlamydia waited 2 weeks to have sex but now my symptoms are back do I still have it?

Here are some. ..: I assumed you're treated after tested (+) for chlamydia, not by symptoms alone and your BF was empirically treated simultaneously as commonly advised. As to the return of "chlamydia-infection-related Sx, one needs to analyze the onset, degree, duration, evolution, and progress of the symptoms and their related after resuming sex over time + physicals + tests as needed so to confirm if the SX is. . ...Read more

Hallo dr, Is it possible that chlamydia goes back and foreward unsymptomatic in 2 years relationship and then sudenly show symptoms? Thank you

Chlamydia infection: Many times chlamydial infections are very asymptomatic in females until a significant Fallopian tube infection ensues or the patient is tested prior to infertility assessment. As to whether a two year time frame is involved cannot be answered. Only when both parties are in a mutually monogamous relationship and have been STD tested negative PRIOR to that relationship can aspersions be "cast". ...Read more

I got treated for chlamydia, haven't had any sexual intercourse now two weeks later the symptoms are back. Why?

I got treated for chlamydia, haven't had any sexual intercourse now two weeks later the symptoms are back. Why?

May not be the same: If you received the correct antibiotic treatment and you were not exposed again it would not be likely to not have had resolution of the infection. What could have happened is that the antibiotic led to a yeast infection and those symptoms are being mistaken for the original chlamydia infection. You need to see your medical provider to confirm and if that is the case the treatment is easy. ...Read more

I was on doxycycline for chlamydia got retested and was clean. However I didn't take the last 2 pills and have symptoms again. Did it come back?

I was on doxycycline for chlamydia got retested and was clean. However I didn't take the last 2 pills and have symptoms again. Did it come back?

Probably not: Missing just one day of doxycycline isn't likely to make any difference. Chlamydia causes the same sorts of symptoms in women as many genital infections, like yeast, bacterial vaginosis, and many more. Best to recheck with your doctor, and to be completely safe, have a follow-up chlamydia test (at least 3 weeks after finishing treatment, or it might still be positive from the original infection). ...Read more

Treated Chlamydia, had symptoms again, results came back that there were traces of it left, treated again. Now burning w peeing, & itching/irritation?

Yeast infection?: It is great that you followed up and found out the infection was not gone so could get further treatment. With vaginal itching and burning now, you may have a yeast infection from the antibiotic. Try an over the counter medicine for this, there are several that treat candidal infections. Get seen if you are no better in a 3 days or if you get worse. Avoid fragrances in soaps & detergents, too. ...Read more
