Chlamydia

Chlamydia (pronounced clam-id-ee-a) is a sexually transmitted infection. Officially, it is a bacterium, but it is more like a virus in being very small and unable to multiply outside living cells. Chlamydia is not life-threatening, but it can do serious damage to a woman’s Fallopian tubes. If this happens, the woman could become infertile (unable to become pregnant). The results of chlamydia infection cost the NHS in the UK about £50 million a year.

Is chlamydia common?

In the UK and USA, chlamydia is the commonest sexually transmitted infection.

  • In 2007, 121,986 new cases were seen at sexual health clinics in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This is an 7% rise compared with 2006.
  • Of those affected, 65% were in the 16–24-year age group.
  • Chlamydia is not just a disease of young people; it is increasing in older age groups as well as in young people.
The true figure must be even higher than the clinic figures suggest, because chlamydia is often a ‘silent’ infection – not causing any symptoms – especially in women. There must be hundreds of thousands of people with the infection who are unaware they have it, and therefore do not go to a clinic. When doctors in Portsmouth, UK, tested urine samples from all sexually active women under the age of 25 (who were visiting their family doctor for any reason), they found about 1 in 10 had chlamydia (Sexually Transmitted Infections 2003;79:22–27).

How you get chlamydia

Chlamydia is passed on during sex, but using a condom gives good protection if you use it properly. You can also catch chlamydia during oral sex, because it can be carried in the back of the mouth. Because most people with chlamydia do not know that they have it, they can pass it on to someone else unknowingly. It is not caught from toilet seats or swimming pools.

How do you know if you have chlamydia?

  • About 50% of men with chlamydia have no symptoms, and do not know that they have the infection. In the other 50%, chlamydia irritates the urethra (the tube inside the penis), causing a discharge and making it painful to pass urine. Occasionally (in about 2% of cases), chlamydia spreads to the testicle (usually only on one side), where it causes pain and inflammation; some doctors think that if this happens, the man’s fertility could be affected.
  • In women, chlamydia infection is usually completely silent, so they are unaware that they have it – 80% of women with chlamydia have no symptoms at all. Some women notice a slightly increased discharge, or slight bleeding between periods or after sex. If it has reached the Fallopian tubes (see below), it can cause pain in the lower part of the abdomen (tummy).
  • Some men (and a few women) develop ‘Reiter’s syndrome’. This is a reaction to the chlamydia bacterium, and consists of painful joints (usually knees or ankles) and sore eyes (conjunctivitis). It normally clears up within 6 months, but may keep recurring over several years, even if you never get chlamydia again. Whether or not you develop Reiter’s syndrome depends more on your genes than on the severity of your chlamydial infection.

Tests for chlamydia

The best way of knowing if you have chlamydia is to be tested. This can be done at a genitourinary medicine clinic or a contraception clinic or, possibly, by your family doctor. There are several types of test.
  • In women, the cervix (neck of the womb) is wiped with a cotton wool bud, which is then sent to the laboratory for testing. To do this test, the doctor or nurse will insert a speculum into the vagina, like having a smear test. In men, the cotton wool bud is inserted into the end of the urethra (pee hole) to obtain the sample.
  • A urine sample can be tested. However, this test is not available everywhere and, for women, it is not as reliable as taking a sample from the cervix. For this test you must hold your urine for at least an hour beforehand.
  • A sample from the vagina in women can be tested using a new more accurate test (nucleic acid amplification test, NNAT). This means that women could take their own samples.
In the UK, a national Chlamydia Screening programme started in 2003. It aims to test all sexually-active women and men under 25 years of age. At present you can be screened for chlamydia at a genitourinary medicine clinic or contraception clinics and at some other places (such as colleges, military establishments). Some pharmacies offer free chlamydia tests for 16–24-year-olds.
 
 

When to have a chlamydia test

Several situations in which it would be sensible to have a chlamydia test are:
  • if you have symptoms, such as discharge or lower abdominal pain (women), pain on passing urine (men) or pain in the testicles (men)
  • if your partner has symptoms
  • if you had sex with a new partner without a condom in the past year
  • if your partner has had a chlamydia infection and you are not sure if he/she was properly treated
  • if you had treatment for a chlamydia infection, but your partner did not have treatment
  • if you and your partner had treatment for a chlamydia infection, but had sex before the treatment was completed
  • if you have another sexually transmitted infection (such as genital warts)
  • if you are about to have a termination of pregnancy (abortion).

What happens if chlamydia infection is not treated?

If you have a chlamydia infection, it may or may not give you symptoms. If you have symptoms, such as a discharge, the symptom may disappear in a few days. This does not mean that your body has cured the infection. You are probably still carrying the chlamydia bacterium and can pass it on to other people. Also, if you are a woman, it can start to travel towards your Fallopian tubes. So go for a test, even if the symptoms have gone.

Pelvic inflammatory disease

In most women who have it, chlamydia travels no further than the cervix (neck of the womb at the top if the vagina). But in about 1 in 10, it travels further upwards through the uterus (womb) into the Fallopian tubes. In the Fallopian tubes it can cause inflammation known as ‘pelvic inflammatory disease’ or PID. Other types of bacteria may then move in making the inflammation worse. PID may be painful, but can occur without any pain at all. If the infection is treated at this stage, the tube may recover completely, or some scarring and other damage may remain.
 
In Denmark, where many young women are screened for chlamydia, the number of women with PID has halved.

Infertility

The Fallopian tube is where the sperm meets the egg, and where fertilization occurs. So if a woman’s tubes have been damaged by PID in the past, the egg and sperm will not be able to travel along it easily, and she may not be able to conceive. If she does conceive, there is a possibility that the fertilized egg could get stuck in the tube, and the baby would start to develop in the tube instead of in the uterus. This is called ‘ectopic pregnancy’ and is a bad situation, because the developing baby almost always dies in early pregnancy, and there will be dangerous internal bleeding.
 
However, while it is true that chlamydia can cause infertility, this happens in only a small number of women who have it. The risk is not precisely known, but a Swedish study in the early 1990s suggests the following figures.
  • If 100 women get a chlamydia infection, 20 will develop PID.
  • Of these 20 who develop PID, 2 will have difficulty conceiving and 1 will have an ectopic pregnancy.
  • The more times a woman has PID, the greater the damage to the tubes and the greater the chance of later problems. So if those 20 women had another attack of PID, 4 would become infertile and 2 would have ectopic pregnancies.
  • If those same 20 women had three or more attacks of PID, 8 or 9 would become infertile and 4 would have ectopic pregnancies.
Untreated chlamydia is also a concern for men. There is now a lot of evidence that chlamydia infection can reduce fertility in men, possibly by damaging sperm. A study published in  Fertility and Sterility in August 2008 indicates that Chlamydia infection may lower the sperm count.

Treatment for chlamydia and talking to your partner

The good news is that chlamydia is easily treated, usually with doxycycline antibiotic. This treatment is over 95% effective if you take the full course (usually twice a day for 7 days) exactly as instructed by your doctor. Other antibiotics (azithromycin, erythromycin) are sometimes used instead; if you are pregnant or breastfeeding your doctor will probably give you erythromycin.
 
It is essential that your partner is treated as well. If your partner is not treated at the same time as you, you can catch it again from him/her. This is a bad thing for women, because the more times a woman has a chlamydia infection, the greater her risk of later infertility. So do not have sex (even with a condom) until both of you have completed your treatment.
 
You may feel anxious about telling your partner about the infection. Sometimes partners do not believe they could have it themselves, because they probably have no symptoms. So explain that most people with chlamydia do not know that they have it. If you think that telling your partner would be problematic, talk to a health advisor at your local genitourinary medicine clinic.

Me and my boyfriend have been going out for a year! And we found out we have chlamydia after coming back from Bali we cleared it up but since then I’ve had problems! We would go to have sex and he would go half way in and on one side it is like stinging pain and then after a while it goes but gets worse every time we do it, I’ve noticed spotting between periods but I’m not pregnant I checked! What is this ?!?! I have also had about 4 times where it was really bad urges to pee and uti symptoms

Posted by Optional on 26/02/2017 at 09:08

My partners results came in that she has chlamydia and I've always thought that it's only transmitted from having sex with an infected person.... The problem is I have never had another sex partner for years and never cheated on my partner... She claims she has never cheated on me either.... She was informed that you can get it from having anal sex.... My question is if both partners never had chlamydia before can you get it through anal sex from the start... Or do you have to be infected through sexual contact previously? If this is true then she is not being honest with me and that's what I'm trying to find out.

A few weeks ago I found out My boyfriend and I had chlamydia. I started the treatment and took the 4 pills he still has yet to take the pills. We had protected sex about 4 days later throughout my treatment. My doctor says it takes 15 days. On the fifteenth day we had unprotected sex but he pulled out. Will I get it back?

Posted by Optional on 01/04/2016 at 09:28

Is it possible to contract chlamydia from underwear that I may have tried on and put back into my cupboard again when I had chlamydia. I was treated for chlamydia 6 months ago and I am just worried about reinfection from the underwear.

Posted by Unlucky on 28/01/2016 at 05:04

My fiance and i had a rough patch and split up. During these few months he had a one night stand. We recently found out that he gave me chlamydia. He hasnt been treated yet but im currently taking the antibiotics. We had unprotected zex and he pulled out, did he reinfect me, as in, do i have to go back and restart my meds now?

Posted by C on 03/01/2016 at 03:56

usually after i have sex with my partner(without protection because i just had my period so my partner said it was safe to have sex without a condom - i lost my virgnity to him in July), I would pee and then wash my vagine. However,on christmas eve (24th) when i pee, i felt this tingling feeling at the end of my pee. Ive waited until 29th and the feeling is still there but sometimes it varies everday, it hurts sometimes it doesnt. So i bought a uti relieve pill and took it twice. As a result my pee was orange and it relieves the pain. But i started feeling cramps and i had my period in the beginning of the month. So i stopped taking the pills. Ive drank plenty of water and Now my pee is in its usual color but it stinks. And after I pee, it itches badly. I wanted to visit the clinic, but my boyfriend said its gonna cost a lot as im not from the states. And pharmacy wont just give me any antibiotics without a clinic prescription. Ill be flying back to my country on the 17 th jan. Then only i can check. But at the mean time, what should i do?

Hello, my question is some what complicated, I was diagnosed with chlamydia, 8 years ago, I was treated, and tested since then. Which as clean. I have not had any flare ups, or scares since. Currently my now wife is pregnant, are there any steps or additional things that I need to be aware of? Can this be passed on to my child? I am understanding something about an eye ointment as well, but is that only if the parents are not treated?

Posted by Optional on 24/12/2015 at 08:07

Can you reinfect yourself with Chlamydia if you wear the same underwear when you were infected and didn't wash them and wear them again and not washed?

When I went to get a medical abortion it was confirmed that I had contracted chlamydia. Just under two weeks after the guy I am seeing told me that he had gotten rid of the chlamydia. I have recently found out that he lied to me and amongst emotions and heartbreak I've broken it off with him but am not seriously worried that it will cause difficulties with my fertility can anyone help me out?

Posted by Optional on 09/05/2015 at 09:48

I got chlaymdia About 4 months ago. I had the White pills about two months ago. I was meant to go back and get re-tested to make sure it was gone but I havent yet. I have no symptoms and I havent skipped a period, and I was also on the pill but came off it about a week ago. Does this mean I can become infertile or am infertile?? If I haven't checked??

Posted by Optional on 16/04/2015 at 07:32

I had chlamydia over 4 years ago. It was treated. Never had any issues until a few days ago. I've been married for 4 years. I've been faithful. We were both treated over 4 years ago. Now I'm starting to have symptoms again. But I HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL. Is it her being a tramp, or can the symptoms just magically reappear?

Posted by Optional on 24/03/2015 at 05:11

On January 23, Friday, I tested positive for chylmedia & got treated for it that same day. I didn't know I had chylmedia at all or think I would test positive, so I had sex the day before, Thursday. I got one doze that Friday afternoon, the nurse gave me two pills to take & that was it for my treatment. I had diahrrea & abdominal pain for a whole week from the treatment I'm guessing. Today February 1st, I started to feel abdominal pain like I was about to be on my period but it wasn't painful enough to take any Tylenol or even think I was getting my period because my period was January 16-20. So after I got done watching the Super Bowl, I noticed my underwear was stained with blood & when I wipe myself It was a darkish color like blood but it wasn't a bright color. I think I spotted. What does this mean?!!! Why did I bleed? Does this mean anything?

At 4 months pregnant I began getting routine sti checks for gonorrhea and chlamydia they each came back negative. I began having sex at 6 months pregnant with a new boyfriend and then I went to go get tested (I know it is backwards) I came back positive for chlamydia and bv. I was treated. We ate still having oral sex and he was the only man I was with!!!! That was back in April. I haven't had sex since June (before the baby was born) I was treated. After delivering my son in my post partum check up I was checked again and it came back positive again!! Mind you I did not have sex after the last time I was treated in June. I have been treated again and no more positive test but weirdly when my bf finally goes to get treated and tested he had negative results. We had sex the day before I was treated and it is scientifically impossible for him to not have it unless it just faded away or was treated without me knowing. Is it possible that it had something to do with me being pregnant? I am really confused

I had chlamydia in September and I had to take amoxicillin all in one go and go back in 4 weeks time to see if it had gone, but I missed my appointment, and the week after I had unprotected sex several times is my new partner at risk because I didn't feel comfortable telling him I had an std

Posted by Optional on 23/10/2014 at 09:31

It started with a uti... So I thought. Dr said it was a kidney infection because I had lower back and abdominal pain . I took cipro for 7days. My partner was having pain while urinating and went to get checked too. Dr said it was a uti but they did additional test. I finished my ciproflaxin and was still in pain. I went back for a pelvic exam and std testing... I was given a single dose of azythromycin... My partner was given doxycycline. We both found out a week later that we tested positive for chlamydia! He was given azythromycin single dose that day. We are still together and we are very supportive now and during our time of infection. I don't think its a reason to break up. We have been together a couple months as a monogamous couple so it could have happened from either of our past partners. It is great to have gotten past it with him and now that we completed treatment we can finally have sex again!

My partner has chlamydia we are both being treated. Since I gave him oral sex during the time in which we were unaware of the infection is it possible to still pass chlamydia back and forth to one another through kissing? I understand that it can't live in saliva but since I gave him oral is there a chance I was infected orally as well as during actual sex. And do I have to be treated twice?

Posted by Optional on 02/09/2014 at 04:38

So i have been diagnosed with chlamidya and have had it for a year or ao and about three days ago i washed my vaginal hair with conditioner. Washed it out. A few days later i notice small bumps. Around my vagina lip. Its one one side. And also thick white discharge that no smell at all. The bumps do not hurt and dont itch unless a hair gets inbetween. I have not had sex since november but have kissed a guy almost a month ago. Any ideas??

I am trying to find my chances of survival giving birth cause in past eleven years ago I had chlyamidia and pelvic inflammatory disease.I got rid of it but I was told if I carried a baby full term doing birth myself or baby or both would possibly die. Is this true? I am now pregnant and scared to death cause of what I was told. I appreciate your advice.

Me and my girlfriend had no idea that we couldn't have sex during taking the medications, we have sex mostly 3 sometimes 4 time a night, I was wondering what can happen since we didn't know?

If you have took the pills but still burning what does that mean

Posted by Optional on 26/03/2014 at 09:26

I got treated for chlamydia but my partner is still waiting for her results. So hasn't had any treatment. The day I took the 4 tablets we had sex. Does that mean I have to re take the tablets or will the chlamydia be cured as it was only the first day of the treatment.

Posted by Optional on 22/03/2014 at 07:28

I found out that I had Chlamydia and my doctor gived me a dose of medication but three days later my girlfriend gived me head I want to know if I can get re efected Nd if she can get it

Posted by very curious person. on 02/02/2014 at 06:12

Hi, I was diagnosed with chyamydia. I received a prescription of two pills and was told to take one, once a day. Then, I was told to wait at least 7 days after taking my prescription to have sex. it's been exactly the 7th day, and we had sex this morning.. after sex, I went to the restroom to use it and for me to uranate, burned so bad. It even hurt when my underwear was placed on my private area. I take it as, I'm not cured.... So I'm wondering, am I re-diagnosed of chyamydia?..or does the STD I carry/carried still have a chance of being cured? because my partner was told that he didn't have chyamydia..but he still got a prescription to take because I'm with child(they didn't want to risk the baby) and, he is my only partner I've had intercourse with for the past year. Luckily, he didn't get a hold of his prescription yet, he might really have to, today. so, since he was told to be STD free about a week ago, did I give him thee STD too? I am so scared because I'm pregnant. I'm aware of STDs being a huge problem to pregnancy..and chyamydia, can make your newborn blind, even born with thee STD or have issues. The internet says this and that but it doesn't tell information of after you've been cured from the STD. It doesn't say things like, your baby won't get that STD or that the baby won't be born blind after you've been cured. So, if a person like myself has had Chyamydia during pregnancy and had gotten it cured, does that mean it's been cured from my future baby's life too? - the internet does not mention any of these curious question of mine..nor does it have an answer for/to them. I can't really go to a hospital because hospitals here aren't close by and I don't have Health insurance.

Me and my partner have just been treated with a one time dose I wanted to know can we kiss each other or will that infect us again ?

Posted by Angry and Hurt on 07/05/2013 at 11:27

I have been with my partner for 4 years. A year ago I had a pap smear and STD screening and all came back clear. A few days ago I had a mirena removed as we were planning on having a baby. I commented on some pain during intercourse and they suggested another screening just to be sure. It came back positive for chlamydia. Now I know I have been faithful so this leaves only on culprit.....! He is denying it of course but the truth is there, plain to see. Is there any possible chance that I have it wrong? (Must add that at the very beginning of our relationship he was caught cheating, and denied it until I showed him unquestionable proof)

Posted by Optional on 27/04/2013 at 08:35

Would oral sex with a chlyamydia partner cause me to have a throat infection . And may cause bad breath ? Maybe bumps at the back of the tongue ?

Posted by Optional on 26/04/2013 at 05:39

I was tested in jan. for stds when I found out I was pregnant as was the father and both results were negative for anything. I went back to my doctor in April and now he says I have chlamydia. The father and I have only been with each other. And I know this for a fact bc we live together and hardly ever apart. He hasn't been checked yet bc he doesn't think he has it. My question now is how is it possible for either of us to have it if we didn't months ago

Posted by Optional on 17/03/2013 at 07:38

I was got chlamydia in 2010 I had it for about 6 months. And took the medicine. A year later my period stop I was not sexually active at the time but I still took some medicine and my period came back on. Everything seem be going well I met this guy and well became sexually active, we always had protected sex. Far as I know there was no hole or anything.... well except for one time . December 15 was my last period , I been having pregnancy symptoms; headaches nausea you name it. The question is does chlaymida lay dormant in your body and act up anytime you have been even of you've been treated? And does it have common side effects like pregnancy?

Posted by SoDepressed V_V on 11/03/2013 at 08:07

I was aware I had this desease 5 month ago. I got treated, but I had sex again within the 3rd week of treatment, some say it takes a month to go away. Anyway I noticed It never went away when my vagina started burning during sex and it was extremely swollen. I went back to the doctor he gave my partner and I a shot in the butt, and 4 doses of a pill. I'm not sure what it was. My partner and I waited 4 months to have sex. when we did it was protected the second time was unprotected within 2 weeks of having unprotected sex I started to have thick discharge and some burning. I'm not sure if I got it from my partner, or it never left my body. What should I do?

So i too was tested positive for clymidia, my partner who have I've been with for over 7months now, well we have always used a condom, other than just rubbing our privates.. so I was too scared to even mentioned it to him, I told him I had a bacteria from having anal nd vaginal intercourse with the use of the same condom. So I made him take the treatment for clymidia. But I repeat! He is unknown of this infection. During our 7 day treatment we had anal sex with condom. I have two questions. 1st is it possible to catch it again? 2nd is it bad if he dranked the power mix water with out knowing if he was infected????

When my partner gave me this STD many years ago,we both took medication and was given the clear. I have no idea how long i had it and wasn't given and more info. Well when my husband and i tried to conceive it was a battle. We did the iui for roughly 6 years and finally got pregnant. HOWEVER after 8 weeks of pregnancy we found out it was a live atopic pregnancy and had to end the pregnancy. Needless to say I was Devestated. Now we are looking to adopt because I am now infertile. Girls, please be careful, if not, it will haunt you for the rest of your life. Learn from my mistake.

HI, so i have had chlamydia before right. I took 4 pills as instructed by my doctor and had no sex for a week. I havent changed sex partners since i have been cured by for some reason it hurts as of today when i pee. My knees almost feel sore every now and then. what does this mean?

Posted by Optional on 11/02/2012 at 01:18

My partner, who is younger than me, gave me chlymidia. We were treated with a course of 4 antibiotics but took them in one dose. We had sex after 5 days but it should have been 7 days so they treated us again whilst waiting for our results to come back. We do not know therefore if we still have it. Wr have been told to wait 7 days now before having sex. My question is can we have sex before this period using a condom??

Posted by Optional on 05/02/2012 at 11:12

i am 18 and my bf or 4 years cheated i never knoew untill i got checked for this std. i have chlymidia i had it for 11 mths and just recently found out. luuckly i have enough time before it messes my insides up and me not having children in the furter will be painfull.

Posted by Emz on 01/02/2012 at 07:39

I take a test for chlamydia annually, I was having doubts recently as I've had two urinary tract infections one after the other in 2months, the first one got so bad it turned into a kidney infection, I'm currently on antibiotics to defeat the current urinary tract infection but as I've never had any problems down south before I ordered a free do it yourself test for chlamydia in the post, just a few months before I'd usually take it, I took it last week and got my results by text yesterday, I was shocked and still am in shock that it came back positive, I've never had a positive result for any std before, I've worked out that I could have had chlamydia for 9months, as I had a new relationship just after the test last year, which lasted about 3months in which time there was unprotected sex. I'm now engaged to another man (who I consider as my husband as although we're not legally married, we did islamic marriage - nikah, and will be legally marrying in a few months time) and we've been trying for a baby, imagine my worry having to explain to him that I think I've given him chlamydia! it's not possible that he gave it to me as he was not sexually active before meeting me (so he says and I believe), Although I called my ex and he's adamant that my fiance has given it to me. If I've had chlamydia for 9 months then what affect has this had on my fertility? and if in the past 5months I've given it to my fiance then what affect will it have had on his fertility too? I'm so upset and feel angry with myself as well as my ex, there's nothing more in this world that I want than to have my own family and my fiance also wants children so much. I'll be devastated and will never forgive myself if I've ruined our chances of having a family :(

Posted by Rather not say on 24/12/2011 at 11:45

If a person had the std in the past will it effects the flow of sperm after it is treated because i had it and got treated for it and afterwards had trouble cumming and even till this day i cant cum some times but it's getting better so does that have any thing to do with Chlamydia. i really would like to know this so i can be at peace in knowing that it could be some thing else thats causing it because i fell sick with west nile when i was on vaction in Africa and dont have it no more.

I was first diagnosed with chlamydia a week or so after starting to have sexual intercourse with my current partner. We both went and took four pills and were told not to have sex for at least 7 days. We didn't. I went back in. I tested POSITIVE AGAIN! We both got treated again. Same routine. Four pills, no sexual contact for 7 days. Now I was just notified today that I tested positve AGAIN! Third time. I'm positive my partner hasn't been cheating and I KNOW I've been faithful. And we have followed the directions perfectly. What could be the issue?

Hi, just been told from a doctor I should get a test as I might possibly have chlamydia, I have an appointment next week. In the meantime my boyfriend of 18 months got tested and everything came back negative. We never use condoms. So my question is, is this almost a guarantee that I don't have it too or is there a chance that I never passed it on?? I'm going for the test myself anyways but just for peace of mind

Posted by Optional on 14/10/2011 at 02:14

My question is, can Chlamydia be transmitted if there are no symptoms, ie: perhaps laying dormant? Was in a couple month relationship with a man.He insisted on not wearing a condom. I decided to go a get a pap smear, and to be tested for std's. I was having lower back pain, nausea, and cramping.my test came back positive. I told my partner, he blamed me and walked out the door. I contacted the man I had sex with prior, and let him know. He had some test done a month ago, and the results were negative. So the person I had sex with before my relationship person, was "clean" if I had Chlamydia, at that time , wouldn't the previous man have contracted the std as well?

Posted by Optional on 09/10/2011 at 12:07

I had chlamydia before & took the pills back in August. My doctor wrote me a extra prescription & I started taking them a few days ago, but I had sex will that stop the pills from working.?

Posted by prego on 03/10/2011 at 11:07

I got tested for STDs a little after I got with my boyfriend who was a virgin. The results came back negative. When we found out we were pregnant a few weeks later I find out I'm positive for chlamydia. He didn't cheat because I'm literally always with him. Still unknown exactly how I was infected. We do think he was born with the infection.

Posted by Optional on 19/09/2011 at 10:45

i found out i have Chlamydia and was given it by my partner. i took the medicine immeditetly from the doctor. although he hasnt got his appt yet he is planning to get this taken care of also. we are not having sex right now. i dont know how long it will take for me to be cured but what if we kiss eachother? could that mean i just gave it to myself again?? and what about my daughter if i kiss her? or she drinks out of my cup of sleeps in my bed?? will she get it?

Posted by Katie on 08/06/2011 at 09:09

i had chlamydia treatment 3 months ago an stupidly slept with my partner again while he was untreated, then got another cause of antibiotics an had oral sex with my partner not aware i could catch it back from that, now i have been retested an am waiting for a result off brrok clinic, i am glad i am more aware now an brooks wesite had a lot of information about chlamydia that i was not aware of. The problem is my partner always says he is to busy to go for treatment! Nothing is more important than your health so if anyone reading this had chlamydia an has not got treatment yet seriously go an sort it out. i hope you find this useful, an i would visit brook if you are unaware of side affects or any other information. x

Posted by anonymous on 06/06/2011 at 09:43

I have chlamydia because my boyfriend cheated on me and I'm pregnant, chlamydia is extremely common and anyone that has sex can get it its nothing to be ashamed about its easily treated even if your pregnant usually with a one time dose of antibiotics, if your having symptoms it may take up to 2 weeks to clear up, the bacteria can also be dormant for a long time as in no symptoms or positive tests so even if your partner has it and you don't get treated anyway and vice versa

Posted by Optional on 23/05/2011 at 08:45

im currently being treated for it so is my partner and we are not aloud to have sex for 7 days and we both have it in the mouth can we get it whilst being treated for it if i kiss him?

I keep getting the symptoms over and over but get a zpack (for other reasons) and take them and the symptoms go away. I've only been with my bf for almost a year. Is it really possible for him to have had it that long with no symptoms at all? Can he be sterile?! That's my worst night mare. Not being able to have kids with the man I love. Help!

Posted by paula on 25/01/2011 at 06:11

Do u discharge a lot? After u have takn the meds?

Posted by Anon. on 20/01/2011 at 11:07

To those who are mysteriously testing positive after following antibiotics properly and not having sex, it could be that you are clear and getting a false positive result, especially after 2 weeks, as often the dead DNA of the bacteria will give a positive result. It is better to wait 6 weeks for retesting as it is unlikely unless you did not complete a course or had unprotected sex again that the antibiotics did not kill the infection :)

Posted by Optional on 17/01/2011 at 02:33

hi...to the ppl who had treatment and it come back What happen after that ?? Did you get treatment again? Or does the affects of the treatment take long ?

Posted by chris on 12/01/2011 at 08:01

I had unprotected sex a couple of months ago, and a couple weeks later I started having pain when urinating, and then a white odourless discharge coming from my penis. I went to the doctor who treated me for a urinary tract infection, with no effect, and them he treated me for chlamydia, only one tablet to be taken immediately. It cleared up after a couple of days. However, now a month haas gone and I'm starting to get the symptoms again, but I haven't had sex. Do you know what it could be?

Posted by Optional on 18/12/2010 at 12:16

Umm i had chlamydia and i took the tablets and i had another test 2 weeks later and i still had it!!!! y is that?? i am really down about this and i cant understand y i still had it 2 weeks later. some 1 plaese help me !!!!

Hi, me and my partner are trying for a baby and I'm really concerned because 4 years ago my ex partner gave me clamidia. I believe I may have had it for a year but I started getting syptoms a.d I got checked out straight away. Now I have had unprotected sex with both my partners for a total of 6 years and I'm concerned why I havnt fallen pregnant already. Iv had a scan abd my gaenocologist has told me I have polycystic ovaries and as far as I'm aware my fallopian tubes are ok. I do Suffer from irregular periods due to polycystic ovaries but I'm concerned that the clamidia has caused infertility.

At first I was having pains n always sleepy.. Then came a smell and lots of discharge so I research and it was the same symptoms that come from an I.u.d but to b safe I got tested. Found out the one I was in love with had cheated and had given me an std!! I was imbarressed and hur!! But I'm glad I got treated. So please young teens and adults be safe and always test even if you are afraid...

I had a chlamydia test and it came back positive me and my boyfriend both took tablets sunday the 19th and we haven't done any intercourse what so ever. It's now sunday the 26th are we safe to have intercourse now as the week's gone?

Posted by Kristy on 16/09/2010 at 04:16

It would be usefull to put on here, when you take the anitbiotics and it doesn't seem to fix or treat the infection like it should, what is the next step. That is what i am currently going through right now and have another appointment tomorrow to find out.

Posted by Optional on 31/08/2010 at 10:54

Thanks so much, I was diagnosed last week. I've been treated but my doctor didn't tell me very much about the long term affects. I figured out I would of had it for at least 1 year maybe 3 so I was very concerned as to whether it would affect my fertility. I didn't have any symptoms (which after reading this puts my mind a ease a bit!) so I'm praying that I don't have troubles conceiving later in life. I've only had 2 sexual partners both of whom told me they were virgins, so girls WEAR condoms, just incase, no matter how much you trust the guy!

Posted by Shania on 30/08/2010 at 09:42

Thank You sooo much for this AD. I've been searching for answers about chlamydia for years and not finding enough information on how indepth it affects a woman's fertility. This really did enlighten my view after having a episode in my life with the disease and also PID. Now, that I no that my chances of concieving maybe possible after reading this article I can finally take a breather. Thank You!

Posted by Optional on 14/08/2010 at 02:17

Chlamydia is a very serious disease. If you have this disease or infection please contact your doctor and get treated because it can turn into a big problem. The good thing about this infection is that theirs a cure for it. So please contact your health care provider as soon as possible to get treated.

Posted by ConfusedWife on 27/07/2010 at 08:22

I have been married for 6 yrs and just found out I have been infected. Is there any possible way to get this other than sex. How about kissing someone eating off of somone that may have it in their thraot???? Help!!!!

Posted by Optional on 14/07/2010 at 03:49

If you had chlymidia and of course didnt know and have used sex toys, after you have the treatment, can you still use the sex toys if you wash them with anti-bacterial wash or would i have to chuck them out?

If I have oral sex with someone and become infected with throat chlamydia, can I infect someone else via deep kissing? How about vaginal intercorse?

Posted by Optional on 17/06/2010 at 03:50

Is it true that under age of 25, NHS automatically send you the free Chlamydia kit to get it tested or do I need to go into the clinic myself and ask for the kit to be sent to me? thanks.

Posted by Optional on 04/05/2010 at 05:15

after touching a sex toy, that i havent used in months is it poible for me to catch chlamydia?

Posted by Optional on 01/05/2010 at 11:14

My boyfriend says he might have some type of std. So i looked up every thing and chlamydia had matched him. I dont have any signs of chlaydia. And I'm just not sure if I might have gave it to him since its 80% of women dont have symptoms. But if I did catch it then that would mean I had it for at lest 9 months? So my question is how long can you have it until symptoms start showing?

Posted by Optional on 29/04/2010 at 11:16

my partner of 6 months has just found out that they have chlamydia, i have been tested but still awating my results, i was unaware that my tendancy to have alot of discharch was a symptom of this, however i have not felt any pain in the lower abdomen, how likely is it, that if i am infected, that i am now sterile?

Posted by Sarah on 15/04/2010 at 09:35

I would like to know how long it would take for PID to occor or any other serious problems from the day you get the STI. I just found out i have chlamydia and i could have had it for months, i am worried about what it could have possibly done to my body so far.

I was diagnosed with Chlamydia when I was 8 months pregnant and my husband is telling me that he never cheated on me. Before I started having sexual intercourse I had an STD test done before I started having sexual intercourse with him. Why did I have Chlamydia when he tolled me he didn't cheat on me?????????

Posted by Optional on 10/03/2010 at 05:27

To the previous poster (optional); I think you have misunderstood the article, you cannot catch Chlamydia through kissing, you can catch it through oral sex. If you have performed oral sex on someone without a condom then you may have it, otherwise you could not have Chlamydia as a virgin.

Posted by Optional on 09/03/2010 at 09:05

i didn't even consider me being able to get chlamidyia because i didn't know that you could get it through kissing and since i'm still a virgin it never occured to me! I think i have it because i have some of the symptoms but not sure how to tell my mum. I think i'm going to book an appointment with the doctors and take a test just to be sure! :S

I have been experiencing this burning sensation to urinate a few days ago,the symptoms disappear after some time but at night I usually fill the urge to urinate and sometimes when I hold the urine,it leaks out.i did a urine test and it went fine except the location of leukocytes in my urine.Does this mean my level of UTI is high and can go away easily?

I haven't actually had sex yet, however I went to the toilet after having a few drinks with my friends and I stumbled apon a pipette along with instructions and my friends identified it as a chlymadia test and for some reason I handled the pipette. Obviously I cleaned my hands at least three times but I'm worried as to whether or not I could of extracted the infection. What should I do?

Confused because I don't know who has spread it or who I may have caught it off. I have fallen pregnant twice in one year and was tested for it in january this year which returned a negative result. So confusing and i don't know how to tell my partner!

I no longer have the infection but am very concerned that I will never be able to have a baby. Is there any way i can find out if I am fertile or not without it being to expensive?

thank you for this information. i still have one doubt, can this disease hold on to your menstrual cycle? its been 15 days im late, and im not pregnant. i am not sure i have this disease, in college i did the test and the results will come in November.

I have just had confirmation after a laproscopy that i may have had suspected chlamydia, which wasn't treated and i now have limited fertility!! i had no knowledge that i had the disease and have been with my partner for a number of years, i was treated in hospital, with antibiotics but he wasn't!!! which i find ridiculous.I am a responsible adult and have only had a few sexual partners, i have always been careful and cannot believe this has happened to me, i think these diseases should be screened for when a smear is taken and it should be made general practice. I am so shocked, by what has happended. If this notice helps at least one person to go get screened then please don't hesitate to do it, even if you don't think you have it.

I was recently treated for chlamydia for the second time & I have a 3 yr old son. we share my food with him sometimes so we share utensils or I'll let him drink off my water soda etc. Can he catch it? Also if I were to possibly have chlamydia in my throat or anal but was only tested by my vagina does the medicine still treat the other two places?

I wanted to get tested but didn't want to go to a clinic! I googled and found a site where you can get free chlamidia postal tests - http://freetest.me.uk/ check there if you want to be tested :)

I recently gave a guy oral sex, who had a genital piercing before i met him that got infected, so he had the piercing removed, i then gave him oral maybe a 10 days after this, but there was no sign of infection, but ever since ive had agonising throat pain and swolleness, that is reoccurs, i believe this guy also had chlamydia in the past...does anyone know what symptoms are of oral chlamydia???! hellpppp!

Posted by younga on 27/01/2009 at 12:41

Posted by Kelly on 23/01/2009 at 08:41

I have two of the symptoms of Chlamydia but I havent had sex or anything close to it for six months. Im not sure if I should be worried or not or if my body is just being weird this week.

Hiya i had oral contact with a males penis the other night and he came in my mouth. I dont no him and i was just wondering if he was to have something what whould happen to mouth???

Posted by smoit on 22/01/2009 at 07:09

can you catch any of these infections by rubbing sexual parts againt each other? or does the penis have to go inside?

My boyfriend and I have been together 6mths and I have just been diagnosed with Chlymadia . Does that mean he has been fooling around or could he have had this for some time.Why wouldn't i have gotten this in the early stages of our relationship??

Posted by Debbie on 12/01/2009 at 02:49

I have had only 4 partners but they were promiscious. I have never conceived, I have had many smears during the latter years and all have been clear. Could I have been infected with chlamydia years ago(affecting my fertility) and it would no longer show on recent smears, or would the virus still be present.

Posted by Anonymous on 06/01/2009 at 04:15

Im at a loss to understand how i got it. Me and my partner were both tested before going out twice yet 4 months down the line she has it? Leads me to think only one thing... But dont be shy have a test yourself before treatment to find out whether or not u had it!
