Chlamydia is treatable disease...

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting the query

I do understand your concern; I will try to help you out with this problem.

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease. It can transfer between male and female and vice versa. It doesn't matter whether an individual is homosexual or heterosexual.

In pregnant women, this can be more problematic as it can affect the fetus.

Do not worry! It's a completely curable disease. Please consult your doctor for a complete evaluation and management.

Hope I have answered your queries; I'll be available for the follow-up queries.

I'm a 17 year old girl and after masturbating I bleed heavily, though as soon as I stop, so does the bleeding. I am not a virgin, and I took the antibiotic for chlamydia which could have been a cause, like after normal sex.. I don't know what else it could be and I'm worried it will happen if I do have sex...Thanks

My 21 year old boyfriend was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea about 2 days ago and still complains of stinging and itching after urination and I'm having an unusual amount of white discharge lately, no smell. What could be wrong? Could it be something other than chlamydia? Could it be warts or herpes?

Hello I have a question. For about 3 weeks now I ve had painful urination. The funny thing is that I get a burning sensation only after I urinate. I drink lots of water, no alcohol, not a single drop nor do I smoke. I m 21, yes I don t a drink or smoke, my primary care provider said it could be an STD that Is causing this. I was tested for chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorhea, all negative. Three urine cultures, everything normal. No genital warts. My prostate was also examined and everything is fine. I was given azythormycin, doxycycline, a shot of penicillin, and pyridium. Nothing helped. I saw a urologist and all I was a diagnosed with was dysuria. I m worried and I do not know what is causing this problem. Do yall have any idea?
