Hi there Tamara. I read your question with interest. Couple of queries my side. It is not clear if the person you had sex with before & on Aug 18 th were the same. More details as regds the sexual history may help set this problem right as we need to know if the partner was treated earlier & if you could trace the source of infection. Secondly, what exactly was the treatment regime. There are a lot of antibiotic resistant cases being picked up nowadays & the treatment needs to be complete. Inspite of treatment, one could get false positives or false negatives vis-a-vis laboratory tests as the case may be. Did you do a serum test for chlamydia or a vaginal swab my mind the latter has far more false positives & can account for the positivity. Once these questions are answered, a clearer picture will emerge. But to answer your latter question..i have never been a big fan of abstinence as sex has many benefits & Yes you can have sex but make sure it is protected & you may want to appraise your partner/partners of the situation & get them treated. Cheers & good luck!
