Did it ever leave?

Okay, so about 4 months ago I had tested positive for Chlamydia. (Originally the hospital thought it was a yeast infection, then the results came back odd.) I hadn't had relations with the person I contracted it from, and had to have the person I was sexually active with get checked. He tested negative. So I followed the doctor's directions, took the medicine and actually didn't have sex for about 3 weeks. Everything actually got better, no problems whatsoever.

Not too long ago, the guy I am with now told me he thought he had some kind of urinary tract infection; it hurt him to urinate, had strong itching sensations, very uncomfortable. Now I am starting to experience some of the same symptoms I had when I had chlamydia; it doesn't hurt to urinate or anything, there is a slight discharge which has an odd smell, though it really doesn't itch at all, just a little bit occasionally.

Does this mean I still have chlamydia? Did the medicine not work? Or did he give it to me? I am so confused, I had set up a GYN appointment for September 3rd, but I honestly do not want to wait that long.

  • Yes, you gave it to him and he gave it back to you. Most half way intelligent doctors will treat both partners at the same time. A negative test does not always mean that they don't have it; the tests are unstable. No, you should not wait because it can cause an infection in your tubes, leaving you infertile. Go to your local county STD clinic immediately and tell them what it going on; it's free.

  • Okay, so pretty much I gave my current boyfriend the disease?Now...your saying the clinic is free, but even the medication to cure it?Ugh, this sucks. :(But thank you, I have been really upset lately because I was so unsure. It's crazy, for the longest time I didn't have any symptoms, and I didn't start having them again until AFTER my current boyfriend had some.

  • The new guy could have brought a new disease into the picture; it's a little like tag and you're it....you might want a herpes 2 blood test if you are negative for the other diseases that they check you for free...sometimes the meds are free; they'll give you a shot on the spot for some STDs like gonorrhea.
