  • WTH? I've never heard of it reacurring unless you aren't taking the meds they give you. WHO said your dh didnt have it? Because if you just asked him, I would be looking into it. Were you in the doctors office with your hubby when they said he didnt have it? That just doesnt sound right at all.

  • Chlamydia can be easily treated and cured with antibiotics. A single dose of azithromycin or a week of doxycycline (twice daily) are the most commonly used treatments. HIV-positive persons with chlamydia should receive the same treatment as those who are HIV negative.

    All sex partners should be evaluated, tested, and treated. Persons with chlamydia should abstain from sexual intercourse until they and their sex partners have completed treatment, otherwise re-infection is possible.

    Women whose sex partners have not been appropriately treated are at high risk for re-infection. Having multiple infections increases a woman's risk of serious reproductive health complications, including infertility. Retesting should be encouraged for women three to four months after treatment. This is especially true if a woman does not know if her sex partner received treatment.

  • Chlamydia is known as a "silent" disease because about three quarters of infected women and about half of infected men have no symptoms. If symptoms do occur, they usually appear within 1 to 3 weeks after exposure. In women, the bacteria initially infect the cervix and the urethra (urine canal). Women who have symptoms might have an abnormal vaginal discharge or a burning sensation when urinating. When the infection spreads from the cervix to the fallopian tubes (tubes that carry fertilized eggs from the ovaries to the uterus), some women still have no signs or symptoms; others have lower abdominal pain, low back pain, nausea, fever, pain during intercourse, or bleeding between menstrual periods. Chlamydial infection of the cervix can spread to the rectum. Men or women who have receptive anal intercourse may acquire chlamydial infection in the rectum, which can cause rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding. Chlamydia can

  • Lots of information there for you to read... but from what I'm getting, you should've been tested again 3 months after you finished the antibiotics to make sure it was gone and if you were... then he's been somewhere else and picked it up again (and somehow he carried it to you and didn't get it himself unless you've had ANY kind of sex with anyone other than him since the first time you were tested)

  • ***good information there but it should have been cited where it was taken from.

    Do you have a toy? It could have been transmitted a second time from there. Many are porous and germs hide in the pores even if you wash it.
