* 2 PCR test one at 3 weeks and one at 3 week and a half after beginning of treatment not after i finished it
Hi itching on the tip would not indicate an infection as the itching would be inside the urethra not the tip. Its very possible that your causing an irritation by constant pulling it open checking and milking it for a discharge.
Thanks Dave i'll let it rest, it's a bit of an annoying situation could the itching be because i didn't let it rest since I had the infection as i was constantly checking an opening the uretra.
You just had a retest? Am I reading that correctly? If that's true, you don't need to retest again.
You were on antibiotics for a long time. If you continue to itch after leaving it alone - and really, Dave gave you great advice to let things be - you might be getting a fungal infection, which is common with antibiotic use.
Just let it be for a few days. Don't check for symptoms, don't milk anything, don't open yourself up, etc. Literally, just leave it alone and see what happens.
Yea I had 2 test after 3 weeks and a day of starting treatment and 3 weeks and 5 days. I’m so afraid of that stuff.
Everything was fully negative but can it a false negative 2 time ? I finish the treatment around a week ago now so I wanted to check one more time.
Wasn’t self cured I saw a venerolgist he put me on both medication and I was feeling great and so scared so he decided to keep the treatment for 2 more week.
I have been pretty depressed by the situation. I hope I won’t end up with an uncurable chlamydia.
You are over-reacting, and your doctor is doing you no favors. In all my years of doing this - and it's been maybe 25 years now - I know of one person who had a hard time curing his chlamydia. You are just a few weeks out from it, and need to give yourself time.
In the US, a total of 1,758,668 chlamydial infections were reported to CDC in 50 states and the District of Columbia in 2018. https://www.cdc.gov/std/stats18/figures/1.htm
In the UK, there were 218,095 cases of chlamydia in 2018 (which I think is low, actually). https://www.bbc.com/news/health-48509969
In Canada, there were 126,700 chlamydia infections in 2017, which is the latest data I could find. https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/sti-rates-canada-1.5230987
If you live somewhere else, I can find that data for you.
I posted these to show you that you aren't alone, and that medically, chlamydia is most often not a big deal.
Do you talk to anyone about your anxiety? Therapy is a wonderful thing. (I say that with compassion, not criticism.) Don't let yourself buy into the stigma of STDs, either. Chlamydia is a simple bacterial infection, just like strep throat. The only difference is the mode of transmission. If you wouldn't freak about strep, don't freak about chlamydia.
Listen to what anuntiejessy is saying. Try antifungal cream for the itching, and test again, after a month off antibiotics. No need for feeling anxious or depressed, it is a parasite that you need to kill. And it alu ds like you detected it pretty fast so all the more reason to be relaxed. Abstain from sex until you get a confirmatory neg test, and next time use condoms they are cheap and are effective against a multitude of things including chlam.
Is there any intravenous treatment option ?
I’ve decided to stop looking to scare myself online
