How Long Does Chlamydia Last After Treatment ?

Chlamydia trachomatis is the bacterium which causes Chlamydia. This bacterium affects the mucous membranes and also the surfaces of cervix, vagina, endometrium, urethra, rectum, anus and also the fallopian tubes. Chlamydia can be treated using antibiotics. But it does not cure itself if it is not treated. And, if it is not treated, it may affect other parts of your body.

Chlamydia is transmitted via sexual activity, both anal and vaginal sex. It is not only caused by penetrative sex. You can even get Chlamydia in your throat if you have oral sex with an infected partner.

Antibiotics like azithromycin or doxycycline can be used to treat Chlamydia. Using azithromycin can lead to pain in abdomen and also nausea. You will get relief from the symptoms after some hours. Keep away from sex for a week. Azithromycin can negate the effect of oral contraceptive pills and may result in pregnancy after the week of treatment is over.

Using Doxycycline may cause irritation in stomach. Even after using it according to the instructions, you still feel the pain. Usually the recommended dose is one capsule twice a day. Do not take alcohol because it will increase the irritation in stomach. Doxycycline can cause your skin to become sensitive to sunlight. When you are using the capsules, make sure that you wear a hat, long sleeves and use sunscreen lotion when going outside. Avoid sex till you finish the course of capsules.

Usually after treatment, Chlamydia lasts for around a week and that is why for a week you should refrain from any sexual activity.
