My partner was diagnosed with chlamydia, I don't present any symptoms and got tested today (results in 3weeks). Would it be too late to treat then?

My partner was diagnosed with chlamydia, I don't present any symptoms and got tested today (results in 3weeks). Would it be too late to treat then?

The reason is that if you develop infection in the tubes and ovary it may leave you infertile. You might want to get a second opinion. Read more

Period 4 days late but had chlamydia, pregnant??, feel as tho I'm putting weight on

Possible: If you are having unprotected intercourse and your period is late you definitely could be pregnant. Do a pregnancy test to be sure and if it is negative and your period still hasn't started repeat it in 3-5 days. This along with the chlamydia are concerning that you are not being careful enough with your health. At the very least you need to be using condoms. Take care and be well. Read more

Get treatment: Chlamydia can be treated with antibiotics and you should consult your doctor for a prescription. You may also discuss with your doctor if you should be tested for other STDs.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. Read more

I got my period the same day I started chlamydia meds, after having a somewhat late period. This was in Sept and I'm now 16 days late. Is this normal?

Not sure of reason.: Reasons for missed / late period include: an anovulatory cycle in which no egg is released, marked v or ^ in weight; eating disorder; Over-exercising (endurance athletics), stress, travel, significant illnesses, oral contraceptives & other meds, Illegal drug use, breast feeding, hormone imbalances and medical problems (i.e., PCOS).

Ammenorhea: The number one cause for a missed cycle is pregnancy, so if you had unprotected sex, than there is always the chance of pregnancy. Infections, stress, weight changes, thyroid disorders, and an anovulatory cycle are all other possible causes. Best wishes. Read more

So I have had chlamydia twice now and I was on both medications. I am late for my period. Could I have PID or be pregnant? I am sexually active too..

So I have had chlamydia twice now and I was on both medications. I am late for my period. Could I have PID or be pregnant? I am sexually active too..

Confusing...: Chlamydia or PID usually don't delay period, but of course pregnancy does. Does "both medications" mean treatment for each of your two chlamydial infections? Or more than one antibiotic for the latest one? The second drug, usually a shot of ceftriaxone, is for gonorrhea. If PID was suspected, you need more treatment. Make sure partner (s) treated and no sex during treatment! Discuss w/ your doctor. Read more
