If your affected with chlamydia can you spread it to your partner if You receive oral sex if so are there other treatments than antibiotics?

Maybe and no: Did you have a positive test for chlamydia or otherwise think you have it? If so, you should not be having sex at all until treated or cured.

Burn at the tip of my penis what else can it be and is it serious? Had chlamydia three weeks ago been on three treatments did every test and came back negative what other possibilities are these

Yeast? Psych?: Already answered once. As discussed there, for sure it isn't chlamydia. Probably no STD at all. If I correctly recall, in your other question you said you tested negative for WBC in your urethra or urine, so probably no infection. Possibly yeast, esp if uncircumcised. Often this problem is psychological. Almost certainly not serious; you should resume sex with your regular partner if you have one. ...Read more

Gonorrhea and chlamydia came back, I am now wondering if the antibiotic treatments have failed or if I have something else?

Gonorrhea and chlamydia came back, I am now wondering if the antibiotic treatments have failed or if I have something else?

If you have gonorrhea and chlamydia, all of your partner (s) needs to complete antibiotics too. There are some cases of antibiotic resistant gonorrhea, but those aren't widespread yet. Make sure that on your retreatment, both you and your partner (s) complete entire antibiotic therapy! ...Read more

Hello, Recently I have been diagnosed with chlamydia and I have been given 1 gr of Azithromycin 11 hours ago. My question is how likely to get chlamydia back if you had used the open package of lube before you get the threatment and after?
