i am a female and have just found out i have chlamydia a week ago i dont no how long i have had it but i had a baby 8 months ago ... i had test whilst i was pregnant and they came back clear ..so if they came back clear is it possiable whilst it is laid dorment would the sti test for chlamydia miss this or pick it up .... i have been in a relationship for 4 years now and i haven't slept with anybody else so i dont no what t think...
Hi. I'm sorry to say that chlamydia dosen't lay 'dormant' as such - true it dosen't always show symptoms (or very minimal symptoms that are sometimes disregarded) for a period of time - but I remember when I learned about STD's when I was studying nursing that Chlamydia will show positive withing 5 - 7 days of transmission. (In case I remembered wrong and for my own curiosity I googled 'window period of chlamydia' and this is about right - some doc's say 4 - 5 days) - including Dr Hunter Hansfield on the ask the expert forum on medhelp who came up when I googled.
Have you talked to your partner about this? What has he said? Good luck on what must be a very upsetting situation for you, especially with a new baby.
hello thank u 4 my reply u sent me xx so if it never came out in my test when i was pregnant this means it was laid dorment and because a test came back positive nearly 2 yrs later this means i got chlamydia after i had my baby xxits just i got told sumtimes if its laid dorment the test want pick it up x and that now i have been treated it cauld flare back up at any time xxx
Hi. it is my understanding that if you have had clamydia, you need to be tested up to 3 times and receive negative results for it to be gone. I could be wrong on that------- but that is my understanding. However, you would most likely not be negative when having your child if you had had chlaymidia 2 years ago and then positive now. It doesn't lay dormant and you have flares---------- that is herpes.
So if you are positive for chlamydia, this is a new infection.
Are you sure you are not talking about herpes? Chlamydia is treated to eradication but herpes lays dorment.
If it is truly chlamydia you are talking about, you've been misinformed and talking to your man is essential. There would be a problem on his end if you have been faithful to him. goo dluck
Oh no. I think you are going to have to have a heart to heart with your man. The question would be if he is faithful. I think at this point, I am so sorry to say, this is a very big question. good luck and let us know how it goes.
I was tested and found to have clamydia. Treated for clamydia all clear cleared 5 weeks later had developed need to to urinate rechecked for clamydia and tested negative Have now development prostatitis rechecked for clamydia still negative. Question is there clamydia inside my prostrate not being picked up or is it an after affect reaction to clamydia infection
