Chlamydia symptoms after treatment azithromycin for chlamydia

Method 1 Recognizing Symptoms of Chlamydia in the Genital Region

  1. Image titled Recognize Chlamydia Symptoms (for Women) Step 1

    1

    Note vaginal discharge. If you experience unusual vaginal discharge, this may be a sign of chlamydia infection or another STI.[1]
    • Signs that vaginal discharge is abnormal may include a different or unpleasant smell, a darker color, or a texture you've never experienced before.
    • If you suspect that your vaginal discharge is abnormal, consult your doctor, gynaecologist, or other health professional for testing and treatment.
    • Bloody discharge between periods can also be a sign of chlamydia.[2]

    Pay attention to pain. Pain during urination and/or pain during intercourse could be a sign of a chlamydia infection.[3]
    • If you experience pain or extreme discomfort during sex, refrain from intercourse until you can be examined by a health professional. Chlamydia infections can cause pain during vaginal intercourse for some women.
    • Burning pain during urination usually indicates some sort of infection, from a yeast infection to an STI. Seek medical treatment at once.

    Check for bleeding after sexual intercourse. Some women experience minor bleeding after vaginal intercourse, and this symptom is sometimes associated with female chlamydia.[4]

    Tell your doctor about rectal pain, bleeding, or discharge. Bleeding, pain, and/or discharge from the rectum are symptoms of chlamydia. If you have vaginal chlamydia, the infection could have spread to the anus. If you engage in anal sex, the infection could be based in the rectum.[5]

Method 2 Knowing Other Bodily Symptoms of Chlamydia

    1

    Watch for mild and slowly progressing lower back, abdominal, and pelvic aches. Women may also experience higher back pain similar to kidney tenderness. These aches may indicate that a chlamydia infection has spread from the cervix to the fallopian tubes.[6]
    • As the chlamydia progresses, your lower abdomen may be tender to gentle pressure.

    2

    Seek help for a sore throat. If you have a sore throat and have recently engaged in oral sex, you could have contracted chlamydia from your partner in this way, even if he was without symptoms.
    • Penis-to-mouth transmission of chlamydia is one of the possible means of transmission of this infection.
  3. Image titled Recognize Chlamydia Symptoms (for Women) Step 7

    3

    Monitor nausea and fevers. Women with chlamydia will often develop a fever and become nauseated, particularly if the infection has already spread to the fallopian tubes.[7]
    • Anything higher than 37.3C or 99F is considered a fever.

Method 3 Understanding Chlamydia

  1. Image titled Recognize Chlamydia Symptoms (for Women) Step 8

    1

    Know your risks for chlamydia. If you have oral, vaginal, or anal sex and have multiple partners and/or unprotected sex, you are at risk of contracting chlamydia. Chlamydia is transmitted when the bacteria ‘’Chlamydia trachomatis’’ comes in contact with your mucous membranes. Anyone who is sexually active should get annual STI tests, including testing for chlamydia.[8] You should also get tested after every new sexual partner.
    • You are at higher risk for chlamydia if you have unprotected sex, as your partner might have chlamydia or another STI. These infections can be prevented by using latex condoms and dental dams.
    • You are at higher risk if you have been diagnosed with other STIs.
    • Younger people are at a higher risk of contracting chlamydia.
    • Since men who have sex with men are at a higher risk of getting chlamydia, be sure to talk to your male partner and make sure your partner is not having sex with anyone other than you.
    • Mouth-to-vagina and mouth-to-anus transmission is not known to occur. Mouth-to-penis and penis-to-mouth transmission is definitely possible, though transmission through oral sex is less likely than via vaginal or anal sex.

    Get tested before symptoms occur. Chlamydia does not cause symptoms in 75% of infected women. Chlamydia could be damaging your body even if you haven't experienced any symptoms. Untreated infections cause pelvic inflammatory disease, which can eventually lead to scarring and infertility.[9]
    • When symptoms do occur, they usually arise 1-3 weeks after infection.
    • Get tested immediately if your partner discloses that he has chlamydia.
  3. Image titled Recognize Chlamydia Symptoms (for Women) Step 10

    3

    Have one of two types of tests. A swab from an infected genital area can be taken and analyzed. For women, this means a swab of your cervix, vagina, or rectum and, for your male partner, a swab is inserted into the tip of the urethra or rectum. A urine sample may also be taken.[10]
    • Ask your doctor or visit a local health clinic, Planned Parenthood, or other agency that offers STI testing. In many cases testing is free.[11]
  4. Image titled Recognize Chlamydia Symptoms (for Women) Step 11

    4

    Get treated immediately. If you do get diagnosed with chlamydia, treatment via oral antibiotics, particularly azithromycin and doxycycline, will be offered to you. If you take the full course of antibiotics as directed, the infection should be gone in a week or two. For more advanced chlamydia, you may need IV antibiotics.
    • If you have chlamydia, your partner should also be tested and on treatment so you can avoid re-infecting each other. All sex should be put on hold until treatment is finished.
    • Many people with chlamydia also have gonorrhea, so your doctor may put you on treatment for this infection as well. The cost of treating gonorrhea is cheaper than running the lab tests for it, so you might be put on this treatment without being tested.[12]

  • Can one partner have chlamydia and the other partner not have it?

    Not likely. Men will sometimes test false negative but it does not mean they are not infected.

  • If I am bleeding after intercourse, but my discharge is normal, do I have chlamydia?

    wikiHow Contributor

    If in doubt, get tested. It's the only way you will know if you have it or not. The test might seem a little scary, but it's very quick and painless. You can get all your other swabs done at the same time so can have complete peace of mind. Remember to always protect your own health and others by having safe sex.

    Thanks!

    Yes No

Tips

  • Because only about 30% of women experience physical symptoms of chlamydia, it is essential to get tested for this infection if you are sexually active. An undiagnosed chlamydia infection can cause life-threatening reproductive complications in women that can be easily prevented with antibiotics and the use of barrier contraceptives.
