Can chlamydial infection be without symptoms for over a year ?

I m a 23yo healthy female with no history of any std. I m 5 7 & about 140lbs. My boyfriend recently got tested for chlamydia . It came back non-conclusive, but he does have a NGU. Over a year ago he cheated on me. Is it possible that this std can be in the body for over a year with no symptoms? I had no symptoms and had a pap smear about 6 months ago & it was clean. After he informed me I began to feel itchy & a slight abdominal pain with a discharge. Do u think I m making the symptoms?

Hi, I have recently just been released from jail and I ve noticed that it has been hard for me to pee ever since I ve got back. It has only gotten worse, so I went to my doctor and he thinks I have chlamydia. But that is impossible because I have only been dating one girl for over a year and I know she has been faithful. But now tonight both my testicles are kind of hurting and I don t know why

Three years ago, before i met my husband, I was diagnosed with Chlamydia. I have been treated and it is gone. I am now pregnant, had my first OB appt. they did the DNA probe for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, and a lot of blood work. Will these tests show I have had it in the past, even if I don t have it anymore? NO ONE knows I have had it once. Not my OB, not my husband.

Hi Doctor, My 14 month old daughter is diagnosed with Urinary tract infection.The infection has reached to a critical stage by the time we came to know about it WBC 100, RBC =5-7 with bacteria E.Coli.Then she was admitted and was given IV for three days. After 3 days she was put on an oral anitbiotic Orfloxin Since the infection was under control i.e. WBC = 20-25 but she didnt respond well to that anti. and within a week the WBC again went to around 50. She was then given Amicacyn injections for seven days. With these injections WBC count has come to normal but showd an increasing trend i.e. from 3-5 to 5-7 in last day of injection. So she has been put on Amoxylin. We consulted on more doctor and he prescribed Taxim for her. So I just want to know which to follow and is this an indication towards VUR or just that infection is chronic and hence taking a long time to vanish? Please help

Hi! My son has problems pooping, he is very constipated. We have given him enimas, laxatives,prun juice, anything fibre and nothings working. He gets really bad abdominal pain and an upset stomach and the dr s here don t seem to be doing anything can you give an idea on what to do? \I have a daughter that has urinary tract infections all the time. She has had fevers for the last week,and she has lower abdominal pain and back pain. She has also been complaining of headaches and her shoulder joints and her knees are sore. She looks sick in the eyes, her eye lids are a little red and swollen. Her eyes were red as well and I think there is something wrong with her but I get the same run around from the dr s.
