I was tested for this the other day when I was getting tested for HSV and my results came back as followed:
C.TRACHOMATIS IGG <1:64
C.TRACHOMATIS IGA <1:16
C.TRACHOMATIS IGM <1:10
Now I know that it is not detected at this point as that is what my doctor told me but he also told me that by the IGG numbers that I had it at some point but must have been treated for it.
This can't be possible as I have not ever been treated for it. so I was wondering can Chlamydia heal on it's own. i'm in a realationship now and not sure if I should have him get tested for this to make sure I didn't give it to him. Please explain...
One more thing my doc. said that I also had C. PNEUMONIAE which was from bronchitis could this have any affect on the results above
Wow I have NO idea what your doctor is talking about. I'm not sure he does either.
If you had a pap smear only, it MIGHT detect gonorrhea and chlamydia. If you had separate testing for those with your pap, it would have found it. I haven't a clue what he is talking about that might be released. I think he is making things up as he goes.
Your IgG shows that you did, but as I said, those tests aren't really accurate. The only time those tests should be used is in fertility testing, and its used to determine if there was an old infection and that's why someone might not be getting pregnant.
If you paid for these blood tests, I'm sorry - total waste of time, money and energy.
Either of the meds are fine - just eat before you go in case they give you the meds right there. And don't urinate for at least an hour before you go. Its also important to give them the first part of your urine stream, and not a mid-stream sample. Don't give them a clean catch, where you use a wipe to clean the skin before.
Earlier I called my doc from home (I'm out of state) and she could prescribe me any thing over the phone and suggested I go see a doc down here. So I did, the doc did a culture and prescribed me meds.
i just picked them up and they are (Pliva Generic) Azithromycin tablets 250 MG...
I was wondering does it matter if they are generic? aslo, Dallasfan stated that there were four pills and they were to be take all at once. I have five pills and it says to take 2 the first day and then 1 pill for 3 days...
How should I take these?
Finally the doc down here had 1 refill on the pack, why would she do that unless this stuff was not reliable? is this stuff good to take.
Sorry for all the questions, I have been going through so much for the past 4 months I'm glad to finally figure out what it was that was causing all my body problems. i would like to just make sure this stuff will cure what I have.
and she did a culture she said they didn't do the urine test. i should have the results by monday..
OK you want to take 4 of those at one time (you can take them individually, but you do need to take them at the same time, if that makes sense - you don't have to try and get 4 pills down your throat in one swallow).
Its fine that they are generic - I'm on generic azithromax for bronchitis right now.
And I wouldn't worry about the refill meaning anything, and its good to know you can get it filled if you need it.
i have not been tested for HPV.. but I did have a papsmear 3 months after my exposure.
I also had two of the three shots for HPV (Gardasil) the two shots I had were 6 months prior to my exposure....
My questions are as followed:
would my Pap smear detect HPV the STD one...
When a Pap is done does the actual culture they take test for warts or is that what the Doc. is looking for?
Having only 2 of the three shots, does that prevent me from Genital warts or does it take all three shots.
After finding out I might have Chlamydia I felt like everything else should be covered and HPV is the only other STD that I have not been tested for.
How do they test for HPV the std?
I Left chamid. and Gono out for four months and look where it got me.
The pap smear will detect any abnormal cell changes on your cervix. If your pap comes back abnormal, they should do an HPV test.
It will take all 3 shots to have full protection, but 2 shots does give you substantial protection, but make sure to get that last one.
You can take the leftover pill if you want. It won't make much of a difference either way, and you probably won't need the refill. The chlamydia, if that's what you have, will be gone in 7 days, so don't have sex until then, and if you have sex with someone you have in the past, they should get tested first.
I wouldn't give him oral yet - you don't know for sure that it's chlamydia. You can masturbate him though. He can also masturbate you, but you both should make sure not to touch your eyes after, and wash your hands.
I'm wondering if this isn't chlamydia if your symptoms aren't going away, unless you are getting a yeast infection from the meds.
You can't know for sure that its gone away without follow up testing, which you need to wait at least a month for.
Honestly, you need to start taking better care of yourself. If this is chlamydia, then you could get re-infected. Each time you get an std, it can cause scar tissue in your fallopian tubes, and that can cause infertility and chronic pain. I am not trying to scare you, but its important that you take this seriously. Clearly, you can go 7 days without sex.
When was your bf treated?
For a list of stds, go to www.ashastd.org. That has all the stds, and how you test and treat, etc.
My mistake was on my post four hours ago I said I was on the forth day of taking the meds, and I'm only on the third. (I wanted to let you know that since I'm only on the third day that maybe why I haven't had a great change in symptoms) Sorry for the confusion
To be very honest this is my First STD ever, and this was my first real exposure. Before this I was with someone for 6 years and when we broke up I acted stupid and got drunk.
Sex is not an issue, he was wondering if i could do that with him and I didn't want to unless it was safe which it is not so I won't.
He went when I called him and told him that I may have it... he went for a test and they put him on meds. about the same time.
i'm sorry I didn't mean to take it to another level but when you said you weren't even sure if it was chlamydia I wanted to know all the other STDS that are out there, so that I can ensure that i have or will be tested for everything
By all means I am a very cautious person and have never done anything like this before which may explain why I am so parinoid about this and all STDS.
The guy I'm with now is a great guy and got tested for everything, to be safe as i asked.
Again i'm sorry if there was some confusion but the only mistake I have made thus far was that stupid encounter .
Thanks for all your help. if I could just ask you to tell me all the other STDS I'll leave you be.
Ohhhhhh sorry - I totally misunderstood that. I thought you meant you had some sexual activity, and you were on the 3rd day of meds. My bad. :( Sorry for the lecture.
I gave you the asha site because it covers all the stds, but here goes - I apologize in advance if I forget any -
* Herpes 1 and 2
* Hepatitis B (Hep A and C are rarely sexually transmitted, but can be)
* LGV (rare, and found mostly in men who have sex with men)
* NGU/NSU (affects men only)
* Chancroid (very rare in the US and other developed countries)
I thought there must have been some misunderstanding some where, not a problem though. I know there are a lot of ppl who wouldn't follow the instructions and just cause more agony for them selves and the other person.
I just hope I can be done with this after the meds... I have not been tested for:
* Hepatitis B (Hep A and C are rarely sexually transmitted, but can be)
* LGV (rare, and found mostly in men who have sex with men)
* NGU/NSU (affects men only)
* Chancroid (very rare in the US and other developed countries)
But dont have to wory about a few like the chancroid or the ngu/nsu, lvg...
i don't think I have crbas or scabies though as I would notice those.
I need to get tested for
* Hepatitis B
Again thank you for everything I'll keep you updated in regards to the results and how the meds work out.
Thank you, I went to patient first and they did a test for trich there and the said it was neg. They are checking for antibodies for hep B and they also tested for yeast and bacterial..
i also have BV... do you know if this could have been from the meds?
Either way I'm finding out more and more as i go but at think I had chlamydia as my symptoms are starting to clear up and that discharge was gone today =)
Thank you again grace for all the great help you provide
LOL I'm SOOOOO sorry, I typed her a message not to long before typing you one letting her know I got my final results back for my HSV.. I thought I had hsv the whole time..... so I also let her know my recent foundings. (I hope I didn't call her Jessi)
Yea, I hope after this is all cleared up I can move on. I'm already feeling much better then I was before, the meds for Chlamydia must be working... I can feel such a difference!!!
I was wondering could BV have been transmitted to my partner as well? Just wanted to see if he should be tested and threated for that as well.
OK.. so it turns out I had both... of course started treatment for Chlamydia already.
I was wondering... what are my chances that the one doseage would not clear up the STD?? and I would still have it. I know I have to return in a month but until then I wanted to know if you think that it would have worked.
what percentage of ppl aren't actually cured by the one doseage?
Wanted to give an update, I am feeling 100% better... now on my period so I get an extra week without sex, which to me is a good thing so we both have more time to let our bodies adjust to the meds. =)
Oh I'm glad you are feeling better. :) Periods suck, but you are right - it might give your body more time to heal.
I'll be checking in on her thread next. :)
I'm doing well, other than I hurt my butt lifting my nephew earlier this week (and yes, you can laugh). Its just a pulled muscle, but do you realize how often you use those muscles?? Its hard to even turn over in bed.
The only thing that scares me is that in two weeks total time after taking the meds... We have sex and then find out one of us still has it. I doubt that will happen since you say that it doesn't happen often but that is a fear in the back of my mind. (to have to go through this all over again) I think that is where my curiousity falls in with blackworlds thread.
LOL that is a lil bit funny ( I did laugh, couldn't help it!!), at least you are able to pick him up!! I hope you feel better though, i know what that can be like to have an ache and every move you make hurts!!
quick question to clarify what I read in blackworlds thread....
"A lot depends on how long after you took the meds that you get the runs, etc. Every person is different, and will absorb the meds at somewhat different rates."
I copied it so you didn't have to go back to her thread...
Are you saying the meds may not work depending on when you get the runs?
Are you saying it all depends on when you get the runs because the body is different?
I guess I am still curious as to why the meds didn't work for her. I shouldn't be since it's not my business; I'm a curious lil bee.
I didn't know that could happen... I got the runs right after I took the meds to. I actually took two and then a couple hours took the other two so either way my body would have absorbed some. i then took the last two the next day . so I should be okay right?
LOL one of those huh? Right there with you; I will bump into a wall if theres one around. lol
For some reason my period stoped earlier then it should have (only 5 days in)???
But I am itching a little bit and in the morning after I pee I get a wierd feeling after... Not really burning or any thing, and I don't know if I am just paying too much attention to the area.
So any ways I have an appt. on friday morning to see if I got a yeast infection from the meds for the BV; or if i still have BV.
My question is, is it still too early to test for chlamydia? If so what would happen a false positive because it is too early or a false neg. cause the meds could still be in my system?
It has been two weeks since i took the meds. I am afraid now that i might still have it because of the itching. I don't want to have sex until I know for sure.
I doubt that i do though since I took 6 pills. and you don't think I would still have it. always safe to be safe
Thank you sorry for more questions i know i've asked it all but heres another. =)
LOL yes in your woo hoo. Its just another lovely infection women can get.
No one really knows how it gets there. When I had it, I asked about that, and the nurse said, "well it is one of those things that is all around us..." and started sort of mumbling, clearly not knowing how to answer. I said, "Oh great, so its in the air and it just sort of flew right into my vagina?" and she laughed and admitted she didn't really know.
Just wanted to let you know thy didn't find any thing except an abnormal amount of the normal discharge, she told me to eat differently for a lil bit to try and balance my body out. but no yeast nor BV, she sent the swab away for my woo hoo strep B.
In my urine my White blood cells were normal and everything else except I had dry blood or something breaking apart from my kidneys or something (there was terminalogy but don't remember)??? she told me to come back and it should be normal again. I don't remember what she called it though.
She also doubts that I have chlamydia still but I will return in a few weeks when I go to get my urine tested again I'll get another swab. The itchiing seems to have settled so i'm wondering if it was just the BV linguring a lil bit or something.
Thanks for all your help I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!! I'll drop a line here and there, i'll let you know how my strep B turns out.
Okay I am beginning to hate my v*****, I have this burning... enough to annoy me =(
I have a GYN appt. tomorrow just for a check up, but i don't know what to do with the burning. I have had sex twice, thinking we were fine but now I am skeptical and affraid.
I still can't get retested as it is under a month. I'm afraid it was not fully cleared
Should I ask for the meds (just in case)?
Oh I'm sorry. First, you shouldn't hold pee that long. I know sometimes it seems as if you can't get to a bathroom, but unless you are being held captive, you should find a way to go. Even bosses and teachers pee, so I'd hope they'd understand lol.
That said, I don't know that holding your pee is causing this. I think its a good idea to get checked. When you go, ask your doctor about inflammation from the infections, or possibly vulvodynia.
I think you need to be careful with the meds - too many antibiotics can cause yeast, and then you have yet another infection that needs to be treated, and now you are back at the beginning of the cycle, ya know?
No, there are some treatments for vulvodynia, though they can take awhile sometimes. There isn't any one treatment that works for everyone, but don't get ahead of yourself and worry about that quite yet.
i went this morning, she seems to think I have a yeast infection.... how i got on in a fews beats me.
She wasn't to happy when I kept bringing up the info you provided me. Like when she wanted to test me again for Chlamydia and i told her it would be accurate she objected and said if i was still positive it would show up nd if i was neg. it would be neg.
So when i told her about what you told be she didn't like that.
but since i was having pelvic pain again she is sending me to radiology to see if there is anything going on.
i was curious does yeast cause burning?
anyways just thought i'd update you . She didn't test me for nulnodynia though.
Thank you, yes a lot of speculative questions as I just want to make sure he doesn't still have it.
Can you tell me how often chlamydia gets in the prostate?
I told him the same, He wanted to know how would the doctor find out if it were in his prostate? He said when the ladies swabbed him for chamydia it bothered him down there, So he wanted to know how they would test his prostate.
I went back to my doctor who diagnosed me with BV a couple of weeks ago for a follow up appt.
I had informed him that I had itching and burning and i went to my prim. doc who didn't see anything and then my ob who said it was yeast.
Heres the problem he said okay and did a check up any ways, he said that on one of my folds of skin it looked like I had genital warts....he said it was hard to tell that it was jagged and too small to really know!!!
He advised I see my ob for a second opion, he said it could have been missed by any one. I am so scared, I can't stop crying. Why is this happening. I thought i wouldn't have had to worry because I had two of the three shots. I actually set up my appt. with my ob for the third shot. (whats the point now)
I am waiting for her to call me back so i can talk to her but I need to know a few things.
you stated that genital warts can clear up on there own... is that right? or is that a different strain of hpv.
My doc said i would have to get a biopsy to know for sure if it warts... is there any other way to find out?
What do I do, I hate my self, I've only had sex with that one other person who has caused me so many problems. I know its my fault for not wearing protection but why. There are too many problems going on now.
If it does clear up on its own, but I and my partner continue to have unprotected sex would we just keep giving it to one another and it would not fully clear up on its own?
I don't even know for sure I have thought about this for a while and decided not to panic until my ob takes a look and tells me what she thinks but i would like to know these things just incase he was right.
Thank you, sorry for the new problem, I thought i was close to being cured of my stds and it looks like I've found more...
i took a look at it when i got home and I just cant see how it could be hpv it just looks like a skin fold, I thought it was always there. but i guess I dont have a doctors eye.=(
OK let's hold on here. First, you don't know that its hpv. This could be many many things, and while hpv is one of them, you don't know that yet for sure. Remember that the other doctors didn't even see it.
The only way to know is to biopsy it, and while its not fun, its a lot less painful than it sounds. I'd do it, to know for sure.
All types of HPV will eventually clear on its own, but it can go away faster with treatment. If they don't get it all with the biopsy, getting it frozen or burned off (again, not nearly as painful as it sounds lol), might be a good idea.
I think one of the issues here is that you are seeing 3 doctors. That makes things very confusing, and I would stick with your GYN now.
If you do have HPV, then this could be from your current partner, or a past partner. You'll never be able to find out, so don't worry about that. Yes, your current partner has already been exposed, but you have antibodies for it now, and therefore can't keep re-infecting each other.
I'm sure right now you are discouraged, and I get that, but you need to find out for sure what you have, and go from there, ok?
Thank you!!, I just posted on the expert forum becuase i am freaking out. I could have just waited but now I am so pissed off that its not funny. Seriously every time i go to the docs its something new.
I will def. cut the other docs out and stay with one. I know i have been all over the place from one to another. I will get a biopsy and just find out what it is, as you have said that will be the best thing to do. i will try to calm down I feel like I've been hit by a bus though. I thought i was almost in the clear and here again another problem :''(
Oh I understand that feeling - I really do. I'll be checking the expert forum and see how they reply as well.
Do something nice for yourself today, ok? Take a hot bubble bath with a glass of wine, eat a really nice dinner, (or get bf to take you out lol), and don't forget the chocolate. Just be kind to yourself, ok?
Awww hon. Yes that would be caused by HPV, but it probably means you have more than one strain, which is hugely common.
The colposcopy (not a colonoscopy, thank god) isn't painful at all. Its just like a big telescope like thing that looks at your cervix. They might even have a tv in there and you can see the whole thing, including your cervix If that isn't fun, I don't know what is. ;)
The scraping isn't bad either. I'd take a couple of ibuprofen within an hour of getting it done, and you might just have some minor cramping. Spotting after is common.
LOL that is a relief!! I was wondering why they would do that. I must have heard her wrong. Thanks I will take a few before I go, well if I get to see all that I'd say thats worth it... that will be the best day of myy life, lol
I'll let you know what it ends up being.
hey there.. Happy new year!! hope you had a great holiday!!
I was wondering a few things. I most of the day every day will have a slight burning feeling around the opening of my V... (this is also where I may have possible warts)
it does not burn or bother me to pee... it is just a discomfort feeling.
last night after intercourse I noticed light pinkish blood; this is after sex and when I went to the bath room. I've noticed this before but didn't think much of it. there is no pain during intercourse. My bf does not have any symptoms... non at all
I noticed that the blood is in the *** not sure if it was his or mine since he came in me... I asked my bf if he has any pain he said no. If the blood was in his semen... would he have pain; symptoms?; I just wanted to make sure that it wouldn't be in his semen.
I am also wondering if the burning (slight burning but all day; not when i go to the broom) and the bleeding
could this be chamydia stilll?
could this be from possible warts?
Just wanted to let you know I went and had the colpo done... Not that bad (like you said). I also got tested for chlamydia again and also trich, yeast and bv - the doc didn't see anything for those three. and I'll have to wait for the chlamydia test.
She said she doubts that it is chlamydia and she is not sure what the burning is from. She said if my test is neg. that she'll have to send me else where to figure out what the burning is. She said that they use a swab that test both chlamydia and gono... is that a good enough test to trust the results?
I asked the doc on the expert forum and he indicated that the treatment me and my bf got was a very good treatment and he indicated that it is very rare to get chlamydia in the prostate and doubts I have chlamydia still and something else maybe causing my symptoms... Guess I'll find out when the results return. hope it is neg. I can deal with anything as long as I no longer have chlamydia..=0)
She also sent away the visible warts but I don't know why if they were visible.
Thank you for being there and helping me with all of this!!
she didn't say where, she just said that she would have to send me somewhere else... she is my obgyn.
When I asked for the test she didn't really seem like she wanted to test me and she made it seem like it was in my head. but I don't think I can imagine blood or burning. i actually tried not to think about it thinking it was in my head.... didn't work.
I guess I'll have to wait for the results is all =/
I just got a phone call from my obgyn... like I said I’m not worried about warts but she said that the results from whom ever she sends it to showed dysplsia--- not sure how to spell it.
She suggested another pap in 3 months or some sort of surgery which she said was not needed at this time... I was sorta in shock as I thought I only had warts now I may have a different strain. What does this mean; obviously my partner has it too but what does this mean for him as well.
I haven't gotten the other results as she indicated they haven't come back. I feel like a ping pong ball and I am going from one thing to another. I don't want to bother the doc any more as I know she is very eager to ensure every thing is fine and she doesn't take the time to really sympathize. Can you tell me what this means?
good to hear I don't have to have another worry on my back. When she calls me back for my chlamydia results I'll have to ask her about it more. and if it turns out neg for chlamydia I'll have to find out what to do about this burning because it is annoying me like crazy. I noticed it seems to be worse when I drink coffe =/
So it turns out that it was neg.!!! YEY!!!! but still lost at what is causing my problems, I'll have to work with my OBGYN to figure out what the problem is. But I'm just glad that I don't have to worry about Chlamydia any more!!!! yey =) Thank you sooooo much for all your help and I'll let you know (when I find out) what's causing my symptoms.
I have so much irritation from this burning that I went and got a conformation urine test for chlamydia to make sure I didn't have a false neg. culture.
I havent gotten the results back yet but should get them today or tomorrow. I was wondering is a urine test just as reliable as a culture... I waited four hours before I gave my urine. but had some concerns, does it have to be processed in a certain manner to ensure correct results.
I am so irritated with this burning and I don't know what to do, it seems to be getting worse daily.
