I got chlamydia 7 months ago. i was treated twice and im still positve. why wont it go away. and i use condoms
You should be asking this question to the doctor, repeated positive test of STD's is a sign that something else could be wrong, which will include a series of test. You should also STOP HAVING SEX while on the antibiotic that is suppose to help clear up the Chlamydia. No sex during the antibiotic treatment & No sex at least 1 month after treatment. It's also essential to ask your partner to get tested before you have sex again, it's essential to ask every partner you have to get tested, it's essential to STICK TO ONE PARTNER instead of several different partners. The person who you keep having sex with could be giving it back to you over & over. You should definetely think about getting an HIV test because it sounds like you are at high risk.
maybe because you are having sex with the same person that gave it to you.....think about it..
chlamydia ois one of the hardest conditions to treat. Go to the doctor tell him or h er that it is persistant and t hen undertake another course of treatment and STAY CELIBATE until it clears up.
Like thrush-- it will not leave you as long as it is being passed from you to him and back and remembr that the condom only covers part of the genitalia , it can be passed by hands and other body parts. It hides in the clitoris and other skin folds so keep your hands to yourself too.
change your brand of comdoms
It would be a great idea to stop having sex until your STD clears up, whether or not you use condoms. Exposing/infecting others with your sexually transmitted disease is, well, horrible. If it's the same partner, that person will need to treated. If you have more than one partner, they will need to be informed so they, too, can be treated and not spread the disease. Check out the source link. It's where the below info came from, and take care.
What is the treatment for chlamydia?
Antibiotics are used to treat and cure chlamydia. A single dose of azithromycin or a week of doxycycline are the most commonly used treatments. All sex partners should also be treated to avoid reinfection. You should not have sex until you and your sex partner(s) have finished treatment. There are safe antibiotics to cure chlamydia during pregnancy.
What should I do if I have chlamydia?
Chlamydia is easily treated, but itéˆ¥æªš important for you to seek testing and get treatment right away. By seeking testing and getting treated, you are taking good care of your reproductive health. If you have chlamydia:
Get it treated right away. Visit a clinic, doctor, or nurse. Research suggests that having an STD increases your risk for getting infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
Follow your doctoréˆ¥æªš orders and finish all the medicine that you are given. Even if the symptoms go away, you still need to finish all of the medicine.
Avoid having any sexual activity while you are being treated for chlamydia.
Tell your sexual partners, so they can be treated too.
Get a follow-up test three to four months after treatment to make sure that the infection has been cured.
See your doctor again if your symptoms do not disappear within one to two weeks after finishing the medicine.
See your doctor again within 3 to 4 months for another chlamydia test, especially if your sex partner was not treated or if you have a new sex partner.
Doctors, local health departments, and STD and family planning clinics have information about STDs and can give you a test to find out if you have chlamydia. Donéˆ¥æª› assume your doctor will automatically test you for chlamydia éˆ?you can take care of yourself, though, by asking about chlamydia and requesting a test.
CDC-INFO has free information and offers list of clinics and doctors who provide treatment for STDs. Call CDC-INFO at 1-800-CDC-INFO (232-4636), TTY: 1-888-232-6348. You can get information from the phone line without leaving your name
What health problems can result from untreated chlamydia?
If untreated, chlamydia infection can cause serious reproductive and other health problems. Like the disease itself, the damage that chlamydia causes is often "silent."
In women, the chlamydia bacteria often infect the cells of the cervix. If not treated, the infection can spread into the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This happens in up to 40 percent of women with untreated chlamydia. PID can cause:
Infertility. This is the inability to get pregnant. The infection scars the fallopian tubes, keeping eggs from being fertilized.
An ectopic or tubal pregnancy. This means that a fertilized egg starts developing in the fallopian tube instead of moving into the uterus. This is a dangerous condition that can be deadly to the woman.
Chronic pelvic pain. Pain that is ongoing, usually from scar tissue.
Untreated chlamydial infections can also cause inflammation of the bladder. Women who have chlamydia may also be more likely to get HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, from a person who is infected with HIV. In people having anal sex with a partner who has chlamydia, the bacteria can cause proctitis, which is an infection of the lining of the rectum. The bacteria causing chlamydia infections can also be found in the throats of people who have oral sex.
If you are still sleeping w/ the person that gave it to you, stop. And if that person hasn't gotten treatment yet... then make them b/c otherwise you will keep getting it.
Condoms are not 100% fool proof. Or maybe you're passing it back to your self through oral sex?
