Why is my vagina still a little itchy and slightly burning if I took the azithromycin to cure chlamydia? I took the medicine 4 days ago

Vaginal itching: You may have gotten secondary yeast infection, may not have cured the Chlamydia, may have had more than a single infection and only treated one, may have gotten something new since being diagnosed with Chlamydia. This cannot be addressed on the internet. See your doctor and be re-examined. Best wishes.

After taking 1 g of azithromycin for chlamydia, I feel better but on the 8th day my vagina got itchy. What could this be?

Maybe yeast: Possible a yeast infection related to recent antibioics. Trichomonas is another infection to consider, especiallly if you were not tested for thhis when your chlamydia was diagnosed. I advise you get a repeat pelvic exam.

Vaginal discharge: It is likely the antibiotics altered the flora of your vagina and from your description this sounds like a yeast infection. See your doctor for confirmation if you can, otherwise you can buy a diflucan (fluconazole) tablet at the pharmacy which should help.

My vagina has been itchy and sore for a month. I've tested negative for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Is it a ph imbalance? If so what do I do to fix it?

See your doctor: Many things can cause this, irritation from soaps, detergents and fabric softeners, other infections, etc. The best thing to do is to see your gyn.

I was just tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, yeast, & bv - all negative. I still have an itchy vagina (only symptom). What can this be from?

I was just tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, yeast, & bv - all negative. I still have an itchy vagina (only symptom). What can this be from?

Something else!: When you have a condition and a doc says all tests are normal it means really that I haven't thought hard enough about your condition. In the meantime read "Your Medical Mind" by Dr Jerome Groopman. A great read and it will give you some good insights into the way doctors think about patients. Good luck!

Itchy vagina for 1 month. Tested negative for gonorrhea, chlamydia, bv, trich and yeast. No pain, just itching. What could it be??

Examine your soap: You need to check and make sure that your underwear is fully rinsed if machine washed as the material can retain dried soap powder or liquid which will reactivate when confronted by a moist vulva. Secondly, make sure that you use only Dove, Ivory or Caress soaps on the vulva as other soaps are too harsh and can cause itching.

My vagina is itchy and irritated. I was massaging it due to the itchiness and it began to bleed. What do I do? I was just treated for chlamydia earlier this week. I am also on the birth control, Depo-Provera shot. Could this be any factors as well?

It: It sounds like you may have developed a yeast infection. This commonly occurs after taking antibiotics. When a yeast infection is present the vaginal tissue is inflammed and if rubbed can bleed easily. Try an over the counter yeast infection cream and insert it into vagina as directed. You can also rub some of the cream on the outside inflammed area. If this treatment fails schedule a visit with your doctor. Take care.

Slightly irritated cervix, itchy vagina, slight pelvic pain, and sometimes discharge is yellow. Neg for STD and yeast. Past history of chlamydia. Help?

See an OB/GYN: There are many possible explanations for this, but in order to answer you intelligently one would have to examine you and perhaps do some lab tests. Go get this worked out and hope you'll be better soon.

I took azithromycin for chlamydia I had sex unprotected with my partner later that night. She was treated 2 days prior. Are we likely reinfected?

I took azithromycin for chlamydia I had sex unprotected with my partner later that night. She was treated 2 days prior. Are we likely reinfected?

Probably not: Neither one of you is likely fully cured, but you both still retain enough meds in your system to heal. They usually suggest you knock it off for a while so the tissues can heal, but in this instance you probably didn't change anything.

Partner and I took azithromycin for chlamydia at same time and had unprotected sex same day and next. Is it still effective. We are monogamous.

Chlamydia treatment: The best way to know if you were both fully treated is to repeat any testing a few weeks after the treatment. If symptoms have abated you may be fine. But, it is usually taught that one must not expose partners for 48 hours after treatment so that an untreated bacteria does not reinfect you our your partner.

I took azithromycin for chlamydia and my partner and I took it at the same time. How long do we have to wait to have sex and for it to clear up?

I took azithromycin for chlamydia and my partner and I took it at the same time. How long do we have to wait to have sex and for it to clear up?

You must wait for: Both the treatment to be complete and a minimum of seven days before sexual activity. So, even if you take a treatment that lasts for a day - you must still wait for seven days.

I took azithromycin for chlamydia. What I want to know is during treatment, is it possible to reinfect another part of your body via bodily fluids?

I took azithromycin for chlamydia. What I want to know is during treatment, is it possible to reinfect another part of your body via bodily fluids?

No: Since the azithromycin is in your blood stream and therefore everywhere in your body you can't infect another prt of your body with chlamydia while on the antibiotics and the chlamydia should be gone by the time you finish the antibiotics. Hope this helps.
