Yes, as long as you weren't sexually active for 7 days after (no oral, anal, or vaginal sex or sharing sex toys -- not even with a condom). You should have been given a single dose of azythromycin (1g) and it should've cleared up quickly. Remember that you both need to get retested two to three months after treatment, every year, and anytime you have a new partner.

In the female reproductive tract, the chlamydia bacterium really doesn't infect the tissues of the vagina, but only the tissues of the cervix and urethra. This doesn't mean that your partner can't catch it if you've had genital-genital contact, though.


Yes, chlamydia doesn't necessarily mean the end of a relationship.


A negative chlamydia test means you are not infected with the bacteria.


Certainly the situation merits a frank discussion with the partner. If you've had genital-genital contact with someone else during that time, it's possible you brought the infection into the relationship without having sex with someone else. It's possible your test was a false chlamydia test result. A more obvious and common explanation is that your partner brought the infection into the relationship. Sorry for your trouble, whatever the cause may have been.


You will need to be tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia. You can have trich without having gonorrhea and chlamydia, but many infected with trich have gonorrhea or chlamydia or both.


No, most people with chlamydia do not have HIV. However, it's important that anyone diagnosed with chlamydia be tested for HIV, syphilis, and gonorrhea.


I can see one of three possibilities:You had it from a past relationship.Your partner already had it before beginning a relationship with you.Your partner has other partners.Sexual exposure is the only way of contracting chlamydia. Men generally do not have symptoms and can certainly have it for many years; the fact that it was given to you does not necessarily mean that your partner is currently with any other people, but it would suggest that any partner that he had been with in his life gave it to him if you truly have never had sexual contact with another person. The important thing is that both you and your husband need to be treated at the same time, or else you will keep giving it to each other.

A positive vaginal test for chlamydia doesn't tell you whether you're infected in your throat.


Pap smears can't detect chlamydia, and a normal Pap doesn't mean you don't have chlamydia. A pap smear looks for cervical cancer and precancerous problems. If you need testing for chlamydia, ask for the test by name.


Yes, a man with chlamydia can get a woman pregnant, and infect her with chlamydia as well. 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 gonorrhea and/or chlamydia doesn't mean you can't get pregnant.


It doesn't automatically mean that you have genital warts if your partner did. My partner was infected, but I wasn't.


If you mean business partner, no. If you mean life partner who is the daughter's parent, yes. If you mean life partner who is not the parent, not unless you name them in the will to be the guardian of your daughter.


Yes, you can be infertile after having chlamydia, but most people who had chlamydia are not infertile. About 20% of women with chlamydia get PID, and 20% of them end up infertile. So fewer than one in ten women who had chlamydia twice will be 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.


By definition, a carrier of an infectious disease is someone who has the infection (carries the germ), but has no symptoms. So, in order to carry chlamydia, you have to first be infected with it. Most people with chlamydia have no symptoms. That's true for 80 to 90% of females and at least half of males. Most often, people get chlamydia from those who have no symptoms. It is possible for a chlamydia carrier, or for someone with chlamydia who has symptoms, to get a false negative test result for chlamydia. This result doesn't mean they don't have it.


You could have a lot of things being treated with doxycycline. But doxy is used for chlamydia, and is not used for syphilis.


Either that your partner was driving the other car or the partner was in your car.


That's not a typical complaint, but a woman could have chlamydia and an odor-causing infection at the same time. Best to get screened for chlamydia if you're at risk, as it can be completely without symptoms.Chlamydia typically doesn't cause odor. But just because you have an odor, doesn't mean you can't have chlamydia. If you are at risk for STDs, get tested, regardless of symptoms.no


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.


Interactions between your selected drugsThere were no interactions found in our database between azithromycin/trovafloxacin and Claritin-D 12 HourHowever, this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacistIbuprofen was recommended for me to take with Azithromycin for strep throat.


Gram in medical terms may refer to a unit of mass (e.g. give one gram of azithromycin in one dose to cure chlamydia), or could refer to a procedure for determining the identity of a bacterium through a specific gram-staining process (e.g. gonorrhea is a gram-positive diplococcus.)
