You can have chlamydia for years without knowing, but it can be spread during this time. Each time you have sex, there is about a 40% chance of transmitting chlamydia.

In women, 80-90% have no symptoms, and half of men don't have symptoms. Your health care provider can't tell you how long you've had chlamydia.

How do you cure cervicitis and urealasma infection?

Surgery can only cure cervicitis, but cannot deal with ureaplasma. You still need medication for that. Both cervicitis and urealasma can be got rid of by taking the herbs . Female chlamydia or mycoplasma infection can be cured by traditional Chinese medicine. I recommend Fuyan Pill. It is a patented medicine with compound prescription. It can do the same and more than antibiotics in curing infections. It is proved that Fuyan Pill can kill bacteria, virus, mycoplasma and chlamydia in three months. By eliminating the pathogen in three months, and releasing symptoms, chlamydia infection can be cured by three months. You should also try to eat more and more healthy food when you are treating these diseases .

Be sure to get the recommended testing two to three months after treatment to make sure you weren't reinfected.

How soon can chlamydia cause damage or affect your future fertility?

It varies from person to person depending on their health and other factors. The range is approximately several months to several years. Studies show that a female can have PID and scarring from chlamydia without having any symptoms, and this more serious infection can happen within weeks of infection. Most people infected are able to get the infection cured before infertility develops. Only 1 in 10 women with PID are infertile. Chlamydia can cause infertility in males, but that is less common. The chlamydia infection is curable no matter how long you've had it, but any damage caused by chlamydia will not be reversed by antibiotics. Because you can have chlamydia without knowing, and because it can cause damage before you know you have it, women should be tested at least once a year if they are 26 or younger, and should be tested if they have a new partner.

Why do you have symptoms of gonorrhea or chlamydia if your girlfriend tested negative two months ago?

You might have gotten chlamydia from somewhere else, you could have some other infection, your partner could have had a false negative result, or you might have some other non-infectious problem. You should not rely on a partner's result to determine whether or not you have an infection. If you have pain or discharge, you should get tested.

Can males with chlamydia be asymptomatic for months or years and then have symptoms just show up?

Chlamydia in MenAbsolutely. Actually, a good percentage of men can be positive for this bacteria without ever knowing...until a female partner comes up positive. Females can even have this particular bacteria for a long time before showing any symptoms. As far as men are concerned, the bacteria can be completely silent. Some men do have symptoms, but definitely not all. I hope this helps you.As an addendum to the above, chlamydia is estimated to be asymptomatic in up to 75% of women and 50% of men. It does not, to my knowledge, simply go away without treatment. In other words, you can be asymptomatic for months, even years, and continue to spread the disease to others. Often times, when symptoms do come about, they are symptoms of complications of the disease. In women, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease may develop as a result of chlamydia. In men, epidydimtis may develop. Men may also develop prostatitis, though this is somewhat controversial because it often times is not an infection of the prostate, but rather the urethral pathway that passes through the prostate that becomes infected. In either case, infertility is the end result if treatment isn't sought.20% to 30% of patients infected with chlamydia are also infected with gonorrhea, so I would recommend you get tested for both. Gonorrhea, unlike chlamydia, is usually symptomatic in men, though initially the symptoms are usually so mild that they go unnoticed.Don't be ashamed to get tested for chlamydia. For men, testing involves a urine sample. Be sure to avoid urinating at least two hourse beforehand to ensure full accuracy, and catch the first part of the urine stream. In the event that you are infected, both you and your partner need to be treated at the same time, otherwise the infection may bounce back and forth between the two of you, causing chronic reinfection. It would also be a good idea to inform past sexual partners, as well. When telling your partner that you are infected, honesty is the best policy. It will go a long way in relieving their fear and doubt, and it goes a long way in establishing trust between you and your partner. If you find it difficult to explain to your partner, I'm sure your physician would be more than happy to talk with your partner and/or to provide sources of information. Getting treated for an STI is not about placing blame or putting someone on trial. It's about ensuring the physical well-being of everyone involved, as well as their emotional and mental well-being.You may want to consider being restested 3 or 4 months after treatment. Testing before this will only give you inaccurate results. 3 to 4 weeks after treatment, you will test positive, but this doesn't necessarily mean you are still infected. Between one and three months, you may get false negatives, meaning you are actually still infected, but the test isn't picking it up.The only way to absolutely ensure that you do not get chlamydia is to avoid sexual contact. In other words abstinence. In cased where abstinence is not possible, having a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship will ensure that chlamydia is not spread further. If you are not in either of these categories, you should use a latex or polyurethane condom correctly and cosistently. It is important to remember that although condoms reduce the transmission of most STIs dramatically, including chlamydia, they are NOT 100% effective.Yes, it is possible.

Can you be infertile after having chlamydia for four months?

Yes, you can be infertile after having chlamydia, but most people who had chlamydia are not infertile. You should abstain from vaginal sex or use contraception if you don't want to get pregnant. Untreated chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause scarring which can impair fertility, but a history of chlamydia doesn't mean you can't get pregnant. In women, one in five with chlamydia develops pelvic inflammatory disease, sometimes without knowing. Of that fraction, one in five will be infertile.
