Chlamydia

Quite literally asking this for a friend (I swear, gay here). What are the odds of transmission from male to female if the male was on the 6th day of treatment for Gonorrhea / Chlamydia? He is too embarrassed/worried to share that he got it from a guy (not me!) but his girlfriend made it impossible for him to abstain on the 6th day of his treatment. He is now worried he gave it to her. Thank you all!

It takes 7 days for the medicine to work in the body and cure Chlamydia/Gonorrhea infection. If he had sex without a condom during the 7 days after taking the medicine, he could still pass the infection to sex partners, even if he had no symptoms.

He should tell her it is important for her to get treatment for Gonorrhea/Chlamydia. 

He could also use the std.com to send an anonymous text to his girlfriend.  

Hello! I'm 28M. I was diagnosed with chlamydia and I'm already treating it with antibiotics. I date my girlfriend for 5 months now and had unprotected sex as long as we decided to officially date. I didn't have any sexual partner for a while (months) before her. The facts are strange because we indeed stayed on quarentine (COVID-19). I don't live with her, but we've been in touch almost always. My personal research found that Chlamydia transmission is exclusively by sex. As you may imagine, this made the situation pretty strange, of course. Given the context my questions are: - If I/she was already infected but asymptomatic: can she/I get infected but get the symptoms only 5 months after? - Is there any way to backtrack the transmission chain?

Many people are asymptomatic and have chlamydia infection.  

People can have it a long time and not have symptoms. 

There is not a way to backtrack the transmission chain

Both you and your partner need treatment for the infection.  

Can I Get chlamydia and gonnorhea from kissing

If your partner has oral (meaning in their mouth) chlamydia or gonorrhea it can be passed through kissing.  

I recently found out that I have chlamydia, I’m getting cured for it right now, it takes a week. And my partner also has it and is also getting cured. Can we still have sex with a condom? And can we have oral sex without a condom? Will i be fine?

The guidelines say to wait 7 days for cure of the infection.  Using a condom will prevent the reoccurence of the infection.  Oral sex without a condom may cause oral chlamydia infection.  

If I have oral chlamidya and I kissed my boyfriend, will he get an oral chlamidya infection as well?

Chlamydia infection is spread through direct contact so if you kissed your boyfriend he is at risk of getting the infection. 

You both should be treated and avoid sexual contact for 7 days as that is how long it takes to clear the infection after taking the antibiotics.  

If I had chlamydia and was going under treatment for it, and gave my boyfriend a handjob with my saliva, is there a chance he might have contracted it?

It takes 7 days for the antibiotics to completely work to cure a chlamydia infection.  If you had oral chlamydia (in your mouth) it is possible it could be transmitted.

If you had vaginal chlamydia and there was no contact with the vagina then it would not be transmitted

I was asked to take azithromycin pills to cure my Chlamydia. Is it cured within the 7 days I took it or do I have to wait 2 weeks to have sexual contact with someone again?

It takes 7 days to cure the infection.  Also it needs to be 7 days after your partner was treated or you will be one reinfected.  Condom use will prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted infections

On the last 6 months I had sex with my ex boyfriend and now with my new boyfriend,we are really careful and are on birth control, I want to know if we should take any tests to make sure we are healthy concerning our sex life and also me as a woman what tests should I take just to be sure.

You and your new boyfriend should schedule appointments to both be tested for STIs.  Testing includes urine test for gonorrhea and Chlamydia and blood test for HIV, syphillis and hepatitis.  Using condoms will prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections. 

I recently found out I have chlamydia. I have yet to be treated. But if I masturbate and don't wash my hands right after, can it still be spread to someone?

If the organism is alive it can be spread.

You need to get treated before the infection gets worse and spreads to others. 

I know that chlamydia cant be transmitted through skin to skin contact like if the bacteria goes on my hand body etc since it doesn’t survive on the skin but I’m really worried as my partner who had chlamydia he’s on treatment now few days ago spit into my asshole and touched it, am I infected by spit?

Chlamydia is not spread through saliva.  If your partner had oral chlamydia and there was any contact orally there is a chance it could be spread. 

It is recommended that people have yearly screening for stis and also with any new partners. 

Please schedule an appointment at Corner or with your primary care doctor.
