Hi.
Thanks for asking in Healthcare Magic.

Chlamydial infection is one of the main causes of infertility. Chlamydial organisms can either damage sperm or affect its motility. It also affects the ciliary movement of the fallopian tube interfering with motility of egg. It can also cause abortion.

Azithromycin is used in the treatment of chlamydial infection. By inhibiting the infection, Azithromycin facilitates ovulation and increases the chances of pregnancy. So continue Azithromycin as per your Dr's advice. You should take a full course to prevent the development of resistance.

I hope this is useful to you.

Is it safe to take 1 dose of Azithromycin & 10 day dose of doxycycline being only 100lbs? They say I have chlamydia but my test results a month ago were negative also were negative 6 months ago & I have not been sexually active in 6 months. How is this possible?

Hi I tested positive for chlamydia and was prescribed Azithromycin, which were 2 pills. I didn t know whether I was supposed to take both at the same time, so I ended up taking them 10 hours apart - does this make the medicine ineffective? Should I be worried?

I have a question about azithromycin, recently i tested positive for chlamydia and I took my medicine as told 4 pills of the 250mg at once. My boyfriend has not done that yet he s only taken 2 of his pills and has 2 more to take.. Will it still work that way and clear it up?

After being diagnosed with chlamydia, I took the seven day treatment with doxycycline and just finished today, upon taking it I experienced severe vaginal itching and slight bleeding toward the end of the treatment. A few days ago I was also having problems with burning sensations while urinating and I was wondering if this was normal?

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?

doctor1 MD

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?
