Brief Answer:
Not a chlamydia infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX

The normal incubation period (period between infection and onset of symptoms) of chlamydia is between 1 to 3 weeks, just redness of urethral orifice is not a sign of chlamydia. Hence as the contact history in your case is almost 3 months old and no symptoms like discharge from urethra, no testicular enlargement, painful urination.

You can take a course of Doxycycline antibiotic empirically, for dose and duration kindly consult your physician.

Prostate enlargement could be unrelated to infection, I feel its a separate entity in your case.


I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.

Brief Answer:
Urthritis can be a possibility.

Hi XXXXX,
Yes it could be just simple urethritis (i.e urethral infection), but not Hence I advised you Doxycycline. Kindly get examined by a doctor to know exactly where is the problem, and you may be advised to get urine microscopy.
