I was exposed to Chlamydia 15 months ago by an ex girlfriend. It was treated, but I never followed up with a doctor. Now, my new girlfriend and I are experiencing an outbreak. Is it possible that my last outbreak is to blame for this?
I would also like to add that I slept with the ex again after my initial case. Neither my current gf nor I have symptoms, but my doctor very much thinks I have it. I get my test results next week.
My girlfriend got a pap smear in September, but chlamydia didn't show. She's suspicious I cheated on her, which I absolutely have not. I trust she hasn't cheated.
So here are my questions:
1. Do pap smears show chlamydia?
2. Is it possible for both of us to be carrying dormant chlamydia for this long?
3. Would it show symptoms?
4. What are the long term implications for both my girlfriend and I.
Great question, sorry for being unclear. There are no symptoms still. But my doc says he thinks it's there. He swabbed, based on my red urethra (it's been like that for ages -- I thought that's just how they look). The tests come back next week.
Thanks for replying. Any feedback you have is appreciated.
Im not a doctor but my experience with this is a urethrea "itching" and a slight yellow discharge that shows up about 7 days after exposure. Its said that often there are no symptoms but i personally believe if you had it you would have at least some ithching.. But just relax and wait for the results and obstain from oral, vaginal and anal sex till you know for sure.
That's what I hear Vance -- but I certainly haven't recognized them. My back has been aching for about 6 months, I just thought I was getting old. I've had a off-and-on irritated urethra, but it's been pretty red for as long as I can remember. And I've had a bit of testicular pain, but... again, noting that caused me to really stop and ask about it.
Discharge would have gotten my attention, but I haven't noticed any beyond regular morning semen-stickiness.
