User :   Hi, I have a big problem and I hope you can help me: Some time ago I had chlamydia and trichomonas, I treated my self and recently at a PCR test from urine I was negative. My biggest worry is that I could have transmited the virus to my girlfriend, although I tried as much as possible to protect her, by doing protected sex, etc. But recently she had some symptoms: 1. 1week ago she had fever 37.2-37.8, I gave her an algocalmin and the fever dissapeared and she didn't have fever no more from then.
2. 2days ago she accused some lower abdominal pain, she took an antiinflamatory pill and the pain disappeared.
3. She is in the menstruation period now, she accuses big pain and a lot of blood. THAT'S ALL!
I brought some urine for PCR testing but the results will show only Friday next week. Please tell me if I have reasons to worry untill then, I'm desperate!

Doctor :   did you get any professional treatment for your chlamydia?
Doctor :   were you sure it was chlamydia?
Doctor :   Chlamydia is the most commonly reported bacterial sexually transmitted disease (STD
User :   yes, 2 different treatments. I was diagnosticated with chlamydia and trichomonas by PCR method
Doctor :   Infection of the genital tract is the most common clinical presentation. The incubation period is 1-3 weeks.
Doctor :   ok
User :   and at the last test I was diagnosticated negative by PCR
Doctor :   Approximately 50% of infected males and 80% of infected females are asymptomatic, but infection may cause a mucopurulent cervicitis in females and urethritis in males.
Doctor :   ok good
Doctor :   Ascending infection can result in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in women
Doctor :   is she having dysuria now?
User :   no
Doctor :   Any discharge?
User :   no discharge
Doctor :   most will have no symptoms
Doctor :   Chlamydial transmission usually is caused by sexual contact through oral, anal, or vaginal intercourse. The incubation period is 1-3 weeks.
User :   the only symptoms were: some fever 1week ago, lower abdominal pain 2 days ago, a lot of blood and pain in the menstruation right now
Doctor :   was it before your cure you had sex with her
Doctor :   ok
User :   after my cure
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   and you were negative in the tests
User :   yes, negative from urine PCR testing
Doctor :   so the probability is less for her
Doctor :   PCR HAS Eighty to 92% sensitivity; 99% specificity
User :   I wanted to know if her symptoms are relevant for chlamydia
Doctor :   some like lower abdominal pain
Doctor :   can come from that
Doctor :   but a s i said mostly women are asymptomatic
User :   In my case for example the symptoms appeared at 3days after taking the virus
User :   I don't know if it was only from Trichomonas, or Chlamydia also
Doctor :   for chlamydia the incubation period can be 1-2 weeks usually
User :   so, what is the probability for her to have chlamydia from the symptoms that I enumerated above?
