Question: About a month ago I was driving and had to urinate really bad, I started hitting my penis with my fingers really hard to stop the urine from coming out. After that I had protected sex and masturbated. I saw a discharge the next morning. There was no burning or the discharge did not drip out.

I did have unprotected oral sex.
I have taken azithromycin . Do you think i had clamydia?

Brief Answer:
Chlamydia could be transmitted orally

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX
thanks for the query,

I have read your query with a lot of interest and i will gladly make some contribution.

Chlamydia is transmitted through unprotected oral, anal and/or vaginal sex with infected persons. Given that, you had unprotected oral sex, there is a possibility of transmission.

However, that possibility can only be of any importance if your partner was positive for Chlamydia. More so, the transmission rate for oral sex is much low.

Discharges that result from an infection are continuous, worsens with time and are accompanied with other symptoms such as pains during urination. From your query, i do not clearly see these symptoms. The only thing that calls for attention is the discharge you have mentioned, but it was not continuous and it appeared on the following day. Normally, there is an incubation period of a few days but the discharge you had appeared just the following day making it less likely to be due to a Chlamydia infection and more of a serous leakage from a traumatized area or semen etc.

Chlamydia is well treated with antibiotics to which it is sensitive and azithromycin is a good antibiotic against it. If you have taken the azithromycin for a prescribed period, then you do not need to worry yourself. I usually prescribed azithromycin for Chlamydia as follows; Azithromycin 500mg; 1 tablet daily for three days to be repeated on the same days on week two and week three.

Hope this helps.
If you have further query, i will be glad to answer.
Best regards
Dr Achuo

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?
